Rain hammers the earth and a vicious wind rattles the trees. Then lightning strikes, the flash illuminating a young girl staggering out of the woods, her brown eyes wide with fright, a silent scream on her lips... There's a storm approaching the tiny Maine town of Coyote Cove when Chief Maggie Riley comes across the body of a man, blood seeping from stab wounds into the damp forest floor. As she desperately struggles to secure the evidence before the rain hits, Heather, a local teenage girl, emerges from the woods, shivering and unable to talk. Maggie, once a high flying big-city detective, lost everything when her four-year-old brother went missing five years ago. Heart-broken, she's never stopped searching for him: but now she is plunged back into the world she left behind. The victim, Maggie discovers, knew secrets about everyone in isolated Coyote Cove. It seems there are more local suspects in this case than people she can rule out. And with Heather still traumatised, Maggie struggles to unravel her strange appearance at the crime scene. Until, following a faint, bloody trail deep into the forest, she's horrified to unearth what the terrified girl's been hiding... But when Heather is kidnapped, the battle to identify the killer becomes a race to save an innocent girl's life. And with the whole town terrified, Maggie is shocked to uncover that this twisted killer is much closer to home than she'd ever imagined. Battling her own demons and memories of her missing brother, how far will Maggie have to go to save Heather? Or will another innocent young life be lost forever...? A totally addictive crime thriller packed with suspense. If you love Lisa Regan, Louise Penny and Melinda Leigh, you'll love The Girl Who Lied.

The Girl Who Lied by Shannon Hollinger
Chief Maggie Riley #1

Excellent ~ Couldn’t put it down!

What I liked:
* Chief Maggie Riley: brilliant, capable, skilled detective, has secrets, derailed professionally after losing her younger brother and moved to Coyote Cove, Maine, in a relationship with her neighbor-Steve, upholds the law, have a feeling she has an agenda that will play out in this series
* Steve Winters: financial wiz who lost his fire and moved to the country, understands and loves Maggie, has secrets, sometimes depressed
* Wanting to know the secrets Maggie and Stever are holding close
* The murder mysteries to be solved and finding out who the murderers were
* Being glad I was NOT friends with more than one character in this story
* The setting, plot, pacing, and writing that was emotive, visceral, visual, immersive, emotive, and at times humorous
* How all the pieces fit together seamlessly
* That it made me think and feel and care and consider the “what-ifs”
* Wondering what will happen next

What I didn’t like:
* Who and what I was meant not to like
* Thinking about how evil, cruel, abusive, and amoral some people can be and what it would be like to be raised by such a person

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review.

A great start to the Chief Maggie Riley series. Maggie and Steve have so many ghosts in their pasts it will be interesting learning about those secrets in future novels in this series. I did not guess who the killer was in advance of the reveal but it all made perfect sense once the story was told. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Once again, I enjoyed another novel narrated by Amelia Sciandra. Amelia does a great job of creating different enough voices for the different characters which makes it easier to identify who is speaking. ( )
