Review: The Girl on the Cliff by Lucinda Riley

The Girl on the Cliff by Lucinda Riley

After a devastating loss, Grania Ryan returns to her childhood home in Ireland, leaving her boyfriend back in New York confused about why he has been left. A young girl, Aurora Lisle, wandering the cliffs one early morning ends up being Grania's unexpected answer to finding happiness again.

How the Ryan and Lisle families are connected is an interesting tale that Grania's mother grudgingly reveals to help explain why she wishes her to be weary of the Lisle family. This part of the story takes the reader back to Ireland and London during WWI and the years following. There is an interesting parallel between the story of Mary and Grania. 

This was quite an entertaining read. It was the perfect read for me during the holidays. There is a little of everything- romance, family drama and even a little of the paranormal. I did get a little frustrated with Grania's stubbornness at times with her refusal to speak her adoring boyfriend back at home. Although, he also made me mad with his choices. I know, I am being very vague and making no sense. Just read it. Then you will understand.
