Review: Liar Bird by Lisa Walker
Liar Bird by Aussie author Lisa Walker is a delicious tale of dishonesty and just desserts. Cassandra Daley is a Sydney based PR guru, who isn't afraid of a little PR spin. That is, until she plays one dirty trick too many, and finds herself jobless and disgraced in the media. It looks like this could be the end of her career. Or, at least, that is until she manages to secure a PR job in a tiny town in northern New South Wales. But nothing in Beechville seems to run smoothly, from Sam, the boss who is never there, to ranger Mac who seems determined to hate Cassandra and run her out of town. Every PR exercise ends in disaster. And then a Tasmanian tiger is spotted just outside of town, and this could either be the PR coup that gets Cassandra out of trouble, or it could all end badly ...
This was a funny and entertaining read. Cassandra isn't an easy character to like, and from the moment she arrives in Beechville and finds a frog in the toilet, it's clear that this is going to be a story of how she gets her comeuppance, and perhaps changes for the better. I just wasn't expecting how, or the plot twist at the end. Although the story is a little over the top in places, I enjoyed it and thought that it was a lot of fun. Definitely a great, light read.
