I have previously read Just Remember to Breathe, A Song For Julia and The Last Hour and could not wait for Girl of Lies. I have to update this review, because I did not realize at the time that this was the first in the series, and therefore give a more accurate rating. The story line in this book is unpredictable and exciting. I did not want to put the book down. I love how Charles Sheehan Miles has further developed the story, so that his readers may understand more about the lives of the Thompson Sisters, before we were introduced to them. I was surprised at the cliff hanger. Just when I though questions would be answered, so many more were raised and left me wanting more. I definitely recommend this book, and the 2 sequels!

Let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of the Thompson sisters books. I absolutely loved Julia and Alex's stories....and The Last Hour.....well let's just say that The Last Hour left me an emotional cripple for quite awhile after reading it. My heart was one big open wound, and I found myself welling up with tears every single time I thought about Carrie and Ray. It took me a long time to gather the nerve to read Girl of Lies because I knew it was going to be completely different than the other books and I was scared to read a thriller that would put my beloved characters in danger, especially now that I know what Charles Sheehan Miles is capable of. But finally, during a huge sale last week, and knowing that the next book is coming out soon, I took the plunge.

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.

Girl of Lies by Charles Sheehan-Miles was so suspenseful it was oozing out of the wazoo! Charles has this ability to write as if the events are enfolding right before our eyes. The emotions were achingly obvious and problems were glaring, so much so that I had to squint from the brightness a few times. The story begins with Andrea Thompson. Andrea is the sister we know very little about and begin getting to know more about her life away from her parents away from her sisters. We also revisit with Julie and Crank; Alex and Dylan, Adelina and Richard; lastly Sarah and Jessica.

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.

Maybe I'm old fashioned but I really like resolution when I read stories. I like previous books by Miles and this was enjoyable until the end. I'm not a series reader for the sake of reading. I like to read books that start and end. This one started with a bang then bogged down with details and flash backs. About the time it got interesting it stopped. Yuck. If you really want to know how I feel about it..... Right no one likes things that don't end.

I have been a fan of Charles Sheehan-Miles since I reviewed Republic back in 2007. So, when I noticed that Charles had brought out a new novel in his Thompson Sisters series, I purchased and downloaded it immediately. As usual, I’m glad I did.

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.
