If I was a thriller girl, I’d probably add Last Girl Lied To by L. E. Flynn to my TBR. There’s definitely something about this book that’s incredibly grabbing. I kind of want to find out more, to learn about the characters and the mystery of the missing best friend. I think the love-triangle (or perhaps quadrilateral?) set up is slightly annoying, but at the same time I find myself intrigued. Still, I’m not the kind of person who typically reads thrillers. And the last one I read reminded me precisely why that’s a thing I do in the first place.
So, while I’m definitely tempted by this book, I don’t think I’m going to be reading it ever. For all you thriller fans out there, here’s a book that almost tempted me, if that means anything?
Something made him angry that night.
Something made her cry.
Something made Trixie disappear.
What if it was all the same thing?
Fiona claims she doesn’t remember anything about the night her best friend left a party early and walked into the ocean. But the truth is, she wishes she could forget.
Trixie’s disappearance is ruled a suicide, but Fiona starts to believe that Trixie isn’t really dead. Piecing together the trail of a girl who doesn’t want to be found leads her to Jasper, Trixie’s former friend with benefits, and Beau—the boy who turned Fiona down, who loved someone else, who might be happy Trixie is gone.
The closer Fiona gets to finding out what happened, and the closer she gets to Jasper and Beau, the more she realizes that the girl she knew better than anyone may have been a carefully constructed lie—and she might have been waiting to disappear the entire time.
Told in alternating chapters between the past and the present, Last Girl Lied To is a gripping emotional thriller.
