Erin and Roisin were 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?

Something About a Girl
Billed as more a drama than an out and out thriller this is an engaging read from Sue Fortin. Those seeking action and thrills and spills aren't going to find them here as it is a more thoughtful exploration of relationships and the damage that can be done by secrets no matter how well hidden or how far in the past they may be. It is part romantic and part melodrama and has a few twists up its sleeve.
The narration adds to the entertainment with Amy De Bhrún's Irish accent a pleasure to listen to. It's not perfect though, voices were dropped occasionally and the English characters came over a little as caricatures though the author is also partly to blame here.
My abiding impression is that I enjoyed a pleasurable listen without ever being excited by the story. The time passed quickly, though for my personal tastes the ending came over just a little bit saccharin-laden. It's really more of a romantic / family drama than a genuine thriller or even "Psychological Drama" so if that's your scene this is likely a decent choice.

This book needs to be reclassified
there is no way this is a psychological thriller - itis more of a dramatic romance. Look this was not terrible but not what was expected. I found the basic story line reasonable. I connected with the central characters but found the accents switch from 1st to 3rd person confusing and to add to it the accents and tones for the characters were sometimes hard to distinguish. There was a couple of well hidden twists but nothing particularly earth shattering. Overall NOT TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED

Overall Mediocre, Slow Moving
I don't think I would describe this book as 'psychological thriller', or even 'suspense'. Instead, it's a run of the mill mystery lacking in those key elements of suspense and twists. The main character is fairly benign, but starts to impress more later in the book. The problem is, you know right from the beginning who the villain is, so there's little surprise in the plot development. There wasn't enough to become invested in. The main character's developing romance with a hometown boy was clumsy and uninteresting. Her ambivalence left me lukewarm. In the end, a little less talk and a little more action would have improved "The Girl Who Lied." Some readers will probably like the atmosphere of the small Ireland town, which was one of the better aspects of the story, and the narration was good. however, overall, I wouldn't really recommend it.

Loved this one. I rarely review books, I can't find the right words. The Girl Who Lied was charming. I'm a total sucker for the Irish accent, I've been to the town in Co Cork that is the setting for the story. I felt the characters and their lives and struggles in a way I rarely do. I enjoyed the mystery, the romance and the atmosphere. It's a light read, I suppose, by most people's standard. I, however, have listened to it twice in 2 days and enjoyed it second only to my favorite audiobook of all time, Can You Keep a Secret. I'm anxious to see if there are more books by this author available.
