Publisher's Summary

The truth hurts....
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?
A must-listen for fans of CL Taylor and BA Paris.

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.

I'm a sucker for an accent

Beautiful lilt of the narrator gently draws you in.

Not a fast paced drama but a complex family drama that slowly draws you in more and more. If it had a different narrator I don't think I'd be as fond as it was slightly too slow paced for me. But the Irish lilt got me (reminds me of family members long past).

I'd stick this in the Mum / chick lit zone rather than psychological drama. Maybe it's just too tame for me.
