Synopsis: 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.

About The Author

Author photoLaurie Elizabeth (L.E.) Flynn is the author of Firsts and the upcoming psychological thriller Last Girl Lied To, along with an untitled thriller to follow in 2020. She is also the author of Wattpad featured series The Boys Tell All. Her other short fiction has been named a finalist for the John Kenneth Gailbraith Literary Award.

Flynn is a former model who worked in Tokyo, Athens, and Paris. She now lives in London, Ontario, with her husband, daughter, and the world’s most spoiled Chihuahua. When she’s not writing about unlikable girls, you can likely find her hiking in the woods with her family, perusing thrift stores for vintage dresses, or binging reality TV.

My Thoughts: The moment I got the email about Last Girl Lied To Blog Tour, I knew it was a book I had to check out. I’m always looking to find new mystery/thrillers to fall in love with. Lately I’ve been taking a little bit of a break from them. I feel when I end up reading too many at once they sometimes blend together. So it was nice going into this without having that happen.

The story starts you with Fiona finding out her best friend, Trixie has killed herself by walking into the ocean. However Fiona believes there is more to the story. So she decides she’s going to solve what happened to her best friend.

I do have to say I did enjoy the mystery aspect of this book. I feel there was a lot to discover and figure out. I do feel the book started off slow but once you get to the point when the main character starts figuring things out I was a bit into it.

The book does go back and forth with the past and present. You could tell right away that the book was in the past because the main character would recall memories of Trixie when she was alive. So you find out how thee friendship came to be and what their friendship was like. The author also uses this to keep things in the dark from the reader. There were times we would learn that something happened in the past but you don’t find out until later on what actually happened. So it adds to the mystery of the story.

I do have to say I wasn’t a huge fan of how she discovered what the verdict with Trixie was. I just felt like it was a bit cheesy and honestly didn’t seem super realistic to me. I just felt it was a quick and easy way to solve things.

Overall I thought this was a decent read. I did feel like certain things ended up surprising me. The writing was a bit simple to me. I didn’t have that urge to keep reading but the book had really short chapters so that helped move things along. I do have to say I was expecting a different outcome. I did think things were going to go one way but they took a different route so I was surprised by that. I feel if this book sounds interesting to you then it’s worth picking up.
