Girl of Lies
When Andrea receives an urgent call from her older sister Carrie, she agrees to fly to the United States to help. Carrie’s newborn daughter Rachel needs a bone marrow transpla ...more
Once upon a time in a faraway land, I was a law student. I loved congressional and Lincoln-Douglas debates and I craved politics. Though that’s far from who I am today, this story touched and awakened that part of me I thought was gone. Nothing impresses me more than a book combining both intellect and emotion, and that is exactly what this book has done.
But first, have you read the other three Thompson Sisters books? No? Here.
If you want the best reading experience possible, I suggest you r ...more
WOW WOW WOW MIND - BLOWING, EMOTIONAL & HEARTBREAKING
I need so many answers......I really hope Charles-Sheehan-Miles releases the next one as soon as possible.... My brain will blow thinking about Dylan Paris.
This is my first book from this author and definitely won't be the last! One thing from sure, am gonna backtrack and read Julia, Carrie and Alexandra's story!
A beautifully written story with a emotional journey. Am definitely reeling!
Our little girl, Andrea, the youngest girl in Th ...more
YES!!! More books by Mr. Charles Sheehan-Miles
A three book spinoff of the Thompson Sisters series.
Can be read as standalones or as a series. If you want to read in chronological order follow the order above.
I didn't know what to think when I first started reading ...as each page flipped on my Kindle - I loved the story more and more!
This had the mystery of a thriller in it. The knit of a family. The words of a master.
You must read his Thompson Sisters Series before this book.
I can not wait for the next book.
Or I can not wait to meet him in 2014.
Well regardless - big time fan girl!
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Ah-freakin-mazingggg. Sheesh! I was literally on the edge of my seat..waiting for the "ball to drop" so to speak! Then hello, I get to the acknowledgement page. SAY WHAT!!! I gotta wait for book#2 to see this shitstorm through?!?! I don't think I can handle the suspense. It literally killing me!!! That said, I thoroughly enjoyed this!!!
A BIG 5STARS FROM ME
Holy Shitballs this book was amazing. After being gutted by The Last Hour I had to find out more with this family.
This book starts off with the youngest sister Andrea making her way back to the US to get tested for a chance to be a bone marrow match for Carrie and Ray's daughter Rachel.
As soon as she lands on US soil all hell breaks loose and she gets kidnapped and then the world as the Thompson girls know it gets blown wide open.
All the lies and secr ...more
**ARC was provided by author in exchange for an honest review**
HOLY MOLY!!!! I don't even know where to start with this review. I have so many things going through my head right now, I don't know how to express them without completely ruining the whole book. This will probably be a very vague review because anything I want to say would be a spoiler for the story. And I don't do spoilers!!!! I will say that I am a huge fan of the Thompson Sisters series by Charles Sheehan-Miles. I have l ...more
I want to write a review that does this book justice, but I need to gather my thoughts....
First, let me say that I have read ALL the Thompson Sisters books. I am a huge fan and was eagerly awaiting this one. Girl of Lies is a continuation of the Thompson Sister's stories. I highly recommend you read the others before this one (at the least, read The Last Hour)
This book picks up about 8 months or so after The Last Hour. This book, and I imagine the subsequent ones in this series, ...more
Wow! I thought I had an idea of what to expect from this book, but boy I was wrong. Unlike the other Thompson sisters stories, there was no romance, but don't let that disappoint you. This book is full of action, lies, murder, and it keeps you turning the pages dying to figure out the pieces of the puzzle he skillfully created.
The story is told from so many different points of views, and to be honest it did get confusing at times when you didn't ...more
AHHHHH!! This book is amazing! God I love you Charles!!! It's so much different from the previous 4 Thompson Sisters stories. There is no romance here, it was pure action, political and suspense. And I love every second of it! Everytime a question was answered another two emerges! I can't wait to unearth everything.
Let me start off my saying that I had the PRIVILEGE of being a BETA reader for this novel. And what a privilege it was! To witness a story unfolding almost from conception is an experience like none other and one I will always cherish. My little book loving heart is happy.
How do you explain to a stranger the hurts and rejections that you can barely even admit to yourself?
I’ve been a fan of Charles since reading Just Remember to Breathe back i ...more
This book brings us some of our favorite characters from Charles' Thompson Sisters series, but it is a definitely a different type of book. This one is not romance based, but is more about politics, suspense, and intrigue. It starts after the timeline of The Last Hour and focuses on the youngest Thompson sister, Andrea. She is sixteen and has been raised by her Grandmother in Spain away from her sisters. She is called home by her sister Carrie to see if she is a match for a bone marrow ...more
For instance, it details the back story of the lives of the parents, Adelina and Richard Thompson. We learn their history, who they are, why they are, and what happened to make Adelina the horrible mother that she is. We learn about Richard Thompson, the seemingly c ...more
It is part of the Thompson sister's series, so definitely grab those before you read this one. This story centers around Andrea, the youngest of the Thompson sisters. She lives in Spain with her grandmother who is raising ...more
I had a big of a time trying to keep up with the characters in the book. There are so many new people that we met in this tangle web. I'm hoping as more of the story is released, the pieces and characters will all fit together.
I shut my Kindl ...more
I'm not very fond of cliffhangers in general but this one left me like: "really? that's it?" And I wanted to kill Charles all over again!!!
But what a great and wonderful story!
In my opinion I will personally wait gor the other books to come out to read it but that's just because I hate waiting and now I want the next book ASAP! And this one isn't even out ...more
I'm still trying to figure out how to put my words together, in order to review this book. I guess the first thing I should say is read The Last Hour before you read Girl of Lies because there is a major spoiler and unfortunately I stopped reading The Last Hour to read this one and well bummer for me.
So this was like Homeland meets Tom Clancy meets Enemy of the State and our main characters are the Thompson sisters?
Yeah that was more a question than anything else. I honestly still don...more
Having just finished the original Thompson Sisters books, I was excited to continue their stories and learn what was to come of all the girls after The Last Hour, and Girl of Lies did not disappoint. Girl of Lies picks up after the birth of Carrie's daughter, Rachel. When the family learns Rachel has a genetic disorder which requires a bone marrow transplant, each of Carrie's sisters rush to her side and the hospital to find out if they are a match, including Andrea. Andrea has lived in ...more
A few months back I decided to dive into the Thompson Sisters books and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect because I hadn’t heard too much about the books. Once a few o ...more
Rachel's Peril is a 3 book spin-off from The Thompson Sisters series. I highly recommend you read them first to have a better understanding of everything that takes place in Girl of Lies, and also because they are all beautiful, emotional books. I have fallen in love with all of the Thompson sisters since reading Just Remember to Breathe and each story has left many questions in my mind regarding this family that I was awaiting answers to.
Girl of Lie ...more
I have been a huge fan of Charles since I picked up Just Remember to Breathe. From that moment on I was attached to The Thompson Family and I couldn’t wait for more. I am going to stop here and say if you haven’t read them I highly suggest you stop everything and go live in those books for a little bit. I will also warn now that this series is not complete so yes PREPARE FOR THE CLIFFHANGER!!
Girl of Lies is a little different than the other Thompson Sisters books you see this i ...more
Charles Sheehan-Miles is a master story teller. His works are emotional, thought provoking, and keep the reader enthralled throughout the book.
Girl Of Lies is book one in Rachel's Peril series. It is a continuation of the Thompson sister series. Although this book is a spin off of the Thompson sisters series it can be read without reading the first part of the series. The author provides enough of a background that gives the reader enough information to follow all the characters in this book. I ...more
