What would you do if your deepest, darkest secret was about to be revealed? How far would you go to protect the ones you love? These questions were posed to Erin when she returned to Ireland after thinking that she left her past and her secrets behind for good.

The book starts with Erin Hurley receiving an email from her old schoolfriend, Roisin. Roisin is a part of Erin's past that she wants to forget, but Roisin won't give up and keeps pestering Erin claiming that she knows Erin's secret and even has proof. Erin is determined to ignore Roisin in the hope that she will go away but when Erin's Dad has an accident and she returns to Ireland, it's only a matter of time before she bumps into Roisin. How much does Roisin really know and will she really reveal Erin's secret?

Erin has a very strained relationship with her Dad and you could feel her conflicting emotions as she visited him in hospital. As the days went on it was almost like she defrosted and you could see the little buds of love starting to reappear on her family tree. Whilst Erin is visiting her Dad we are treated to flashbacks of Erin's school days. Days that were far from happy thanks to Jody Wright calling her Curly Hurley and Bunny because of her curly carrot coloured hair. There's one in every class, isn't there?

As with any small town, it was inevitable that Erin would run into Jody and his teasing hasn't lessened as the years have passed, he still has his schoolboy humour and is completely ignorant of the hurt his words have caused. Jody's cousin, Kerry, on the other hand is warm and caring and it isn't long before Erin is drawn to him and finds that the attraction is mutual. Erin doesn't want to get close to anybody but Kerry has really strong feelings for her - feelings that would see him going to any lengths to protect her.

When Roisin's threats don't abate and she suddenly goes missing, I felt like I was reading a game of Cluedo. With so many people caring about Erin, any one of them could have caused harm to Roisin, including Erin herself. The way that Sue Fortin leads us up to Roisin's disappearance was brilliant; any one of four people could have met with Roisin and seen her come to an unfortunate end. I certainly had my money on one of them in particular but, yet again, I was completely wrong!

I really enjoyed this as a story about family relationships and how blood is thicker than water. Roisin's disappearance was an added bonus that added an extra thrilling dimension to the story. Although some of the story was guessable, it was so completely engaging that it left me with a lump in my throat and tears running down my face at the end. The Girl Who Lied is a superb book that drew me in from the very first page then put me through the emotional wringer and left me reaching for the tissues at the end.

I received this e-book from the publisher, HarperImpulse, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Erin comes home to Ireland when her father falls and is injured. She must face her past actions there, with consequences for many. ( )

A good story and an easy read...and the "secret" is fairly easy to work out. [The Girl Who Lied] was advertised as being a 'physiological mystery" but I found it to be basically a romance novel with some family conflicts. Those conflicts were enough to keep me reading but I found the ending rather disappointing since I had already sorted out what the "secret" was. Actually the entire revenge thing on Roisin part was more of a teenage misunderstanding and her jumping to conclusions by not having all the facts. I had to give it the extra half star because Ms. Fortin did give us a cleverly written book with some really human characters. ( )

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.

Erin has been brought back to her hometown, a place she swore she'd never return to, by a family emergency. But her return has also brought her back in close contact with Roisin, her former friend, and Roisin says she knows the secret from her past Erin is desperate to hide.

Books about secrets from the past are inherently intriguing to me. Fortin does a good job of interweaving information through flashbacks and character discoveries.

Erin is also a strong character, who goes on a compelling journey to find herself and her connection to her family again. The romance that begins to blossom between her and another character is one I definitely rooted for.

I was able to call a lot of the bigger twists a long time before they happened. It seemed to me like the clues that were planted were just too obvious most of the time.

The ending also seemed way too pat for a book with the kind of story lines this one has.

This isn't a bad book, and it's not a great one. It's a quick read, and a suspenseful one, but I wish it wasn't quite so predictable. ( )

I liked the book. It keeps a good pace throughout. Some twists and turns keeps you turning the pages. I like the characters and how their opinions keep the story moving. A good story with suspense and romance. ( )
