“I’ve always been a good liar. If you have a skill, you have to hone it, or else you’re spitting in the face of God’s bounty.”
People keep telling Catriona that she’s not very well. She disagrees, but appreciates their concern. Admittedly, she does have a history of making stuff up, but she’s getting better.
When she meets An Attractive American Tourist, she decides to show him around her small Northern Irish town. And to keep him entertained, she might have to blur the line between fact and fiction, just a little….
Soon, she’s regaling him with stories of cannibalism, ghostly statues, human roosters and the largest ever orgy held in Ireland on consecrated ground. But how long can she keep hold of her stories?
