Blog Tour, Giveaway, and Review: Last Girl Lied To


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.

Rating: 4.25/5 Penguins
Quick Reasons: seems complex characters are the name of my game currently; hello, another Laurie Elizabeth Flynn novel!; twisty, turny, utterly deliciously surprising; I couldn’t make myself put this read down; the author knows how to expertly craft a red herring–or several

HUGE thanks to Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, Imprint Publishing, and the Fantastic Flying Book Club for shooting a free egalley of this title my way! This in no way altered my read of or opinions on this book.

This is the SECOND! book from Laurie Elizabeth Flynn that I’ve read (see my review for FIRSTS by clicking that link right there <—!) and I have to admit, Penguins, Laurie Elizabeth Flynn knows how to write complex, compelling characters. From page one, I was swept up in the dramas, passions, remorses….every minute detail that made these characters come to life and breathe free, enthralled me immediately. 

This read is filled with twisty, turny, delicious surprises. There is a whirlwind hurricane moment where you THINK you’ve got the whole mystery figured out…..only to have the entire plot turned on its head in front of you. Don’t get me wrong–I had my doubts about certain pieces of the plot, for sure. I more than ONCE found myself wondering why things seemed too easy, too perfect…but Laurie Elizabeth Flynn has proven she’s the master of red herrings. She so easily had me convinced that I was on the right track, when I was actually way beyond wrong. This made the read all the more satisfying for me, honestly–I really DO enjoy being taken by surprise, despite what you might think.

This title is full of mystery, suspense, angst–emotions, to boil down what might have become a very long sentence. Yes. This book is full of emotions, and bound to catch you up in the heart of it. The characters are compelling, the journey is a tapestry waiting to be unraveled. I definitely recommend to lovers of contemporary thrillers, unlikable but relatable characters, and nonlinear story telling. Take a walk into the past with me, Penguins–this is one tale you don’t want to skip out on.
