Review: The Girl Who Lied by Sue Fortin

The Girl Who Lied
The truth hurts…
Erin and Roisin were once friends until a fatal accident ruined both their lives. Now, Roisin has discovered a secret—one Erin has kept for over a decade—and she’s determined to make Erin pay for her lies.
Erin wants nothing to do with Roisin. She has a new life in London and no intention of going back home. Yet when her father is mysteriously and critically injured, Erin has no choice but to return and face Roisin—and her past. Erin knows if the secret of what she gave up got out, the consequences could be devastating.
When Roisin suddenly disappears, suspicion soon lands on Erin. She would do anything to protect her family, but just how far is she willing to go when time is running out…?

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars 

Right from the start I was hooked with this book, no I don't mean the opening pages, I mean before then. The blurb, the cover the authors name... all those things had my attention and the writing inside the book cemented my interest. This truly was one of those books that once it has its hooks in you there's no escaping until the story is done. Not that I wanted to escape it. In fact the few times I was forced to step away from Erin's story my mind kept wandering back to it and wondering how her story was going to unfold.... and that's always a good sign.

Fortin has done a fantastic job of unravelling Erin's story. Fairly early on, if you're paying attention, you can figure out what the big secret is... however that's not the only secret to be uncovered. And as the secrets are slowly revealed we are left questioning everyone. 

I honestly thought I knew what to expect from this book, but the truth of it is this book blind sided me, not once but a few times. There's a few real heart breaking moments in this book that will have you reaching for the tissues.
