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…?

My Review


With such an intriguing title, this book was a winner from the start. As there are several ‘girls’ in the story I as kept wondering which girl had lied and why. There are a few clues along the way so that I managed to work out part of the story but the back -story of the parents is also interesting. It’s both entertaining and moving as Sue Fortin gets inside the characters and enables the reader to virtually live their lives. I was engrossed and couldn’t wait to see how the story unfolded – not exactly how I imagined it would either! A great story, a romantic hero and lots of secrets and cover-ups from the past that only come to light now. Fabulous!
