Thank you for stopping by I’m delighted to be sharing my review as part of the blog tour for The Liar’s Girl by Catherine Ryan Howard today. First of all though let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
Her first love confessed to five murders.
The truth was so much worse.
Will Hurley, Dublin’s notorious Canal Killer, is in prison, ten years into a life sentence.
His ex-girlfriend, Alison, has built a new life abroad, putting her shattered past behind her.
Then the copycat killings start. Will holds the key to unlocking these crimes, but he’ll only talk to Alison. Can the killer be stopped before there’s another senseless murder? And after all these years, can Alison face the past – and the man – she’s worked so hard to forget?
It’s safe to say that this book has the slow build up of tension down perfectly! Easily drawing me in as more information is revealed slowly but surely. Catherine Ryan Howard wrote this story in such a way that I just had to know how it would all end and even when I put this book down I wanted to start reading again as soon as possible.
Alison’s character was one who kept me invested completely I was so interested in her back story but also eager to learn more about what was happening in the now. Her character was carefully built up and it felt as if I was right there with her experiencing her past and her feelings over the events.
The plot is cleverly crafted as revelations are made and the reader learns what happened all those years ago. There is tension in the air throughout making me second guess everything. The Liar’s Girl had a very twisty edge and I really don’t want to go into too much detail because it is well worth discovering every one of those details for yourself!
The Liar’s Girl is intriguing, intense at times with a dark edge and makes for a compelling story!
With thanks to Anne at Random Things Tours and Corvus Books for my copy.
