Like all of his other books, Girl of Lies was very smartly written. CSM is an author with a brain, and his books are geared specifically to readers who want a serious story and not just fluffy hearts and rainbows. From the very first page we are thrown into a very complex world where everything about this family turns out to be a total facade. There are twists and turns everywhere. So many questions are raised, however almost none of them are answered, and that is where my frustration and disappointment with this book comes in.
I feel like I just read a 340 page outline, not a complete novel. Girl of Lies was 90% filler and only 10% story. As the fourth book in the series (yes, I know this is supposed to be a stand-alone, spin-off series, but followers of the Thompson sisters will see it as the fourth book in the Thompson sisters series), loyal fans of the author's have come to expect a more complete story.Read more ›
Right from the beginning the story was fast paced and had me from the get go. We were introduced to a new set of characters and some of them very unsavory. The story reeks of international intrigue and political wrangling. We discover early on that the Thompson sisters are immersed in one of the most complicated chess games I have ever witnessed. They are pawn pieces in a game so full of deceit it’s a wonder that they are not covered in scars. Oh wait, maybe they do have scars that are simply beneath the skin. Scars of the spirit and heart are much more difficult to repair.
What I love about these characters is that they are so complicated and delightfully colorful in their individual ways. Each sister has had their own unique struggles. Sometimes the struggles the sisters have met in their lives have been so painful that it seems as if there is no hope of relief. Yet, somehow they are triumphing even when they seem to be flaying.
This was not an easy story to read because after having read the previous books my mind wanted a simple Happily Ever After for the girls we have already met.Read more ›
Charles’ first few novels were military thrillers, some of them with a future history edge to them. It seemed like it took him a long time to write each one. Then he switched to romance, and cranked out three novels in as many years, focusing on the Thompson family’s love life. Well, we’re still looking at the Thompson sisters in Girl of Lies, but this ain’t no romance – this is a straight-out thriller.
The basic plot of Girl is that Andrea Thompson, a high-school aged sister who’s been raised by her grandmother in Spain, is called back to America because her niece Rachel needs a bone marrow transplant. No sooner has Andrea arrived in the US then she’s kidnapped, literally right out of the airport. Andrea escapes, but the people who kidnapped are by no means done with the family.
Deciphering why Andrea and the rest of her family are targets becomes the problem that propels the plot – that and staying alive. Sheehan-Miles very skillfully interweaves this action with the interpersonal interactions of the characters. Everybody feels real, and the action is well-delivered and realistic. I have to say, I devoured Girl of Lies. My only disappointment was that the book ends on a bit of a cliff-hanger. But I guess I’ll have to wait for the next two installments, promised this spring and summer. Highly recommended.
