Synopsis: When Olivia’s mother was killed, everyone suspected her father of murder. But his whereabouts remained a mystery. Fast forward fourteen years. New evidence now proves Olivia’s father was actually murdered on the same fateful day her mother died. That means there’s a killer still at large. It’s up to Olivia to uncover who that may be. But can she do that before the killer tracks her down first?


Secrets from a past long-buried come back to haunt 17-year-old Olivia Reinhart in this fast paced suspense thriller that is sure to tug at the heart-strings as memories of a family long forgotten start to surface and a murderer seeks to add yet another body to an ever-growing the list of victims. Henry does a wonderful job developing believable characters with their own unique stories to tell, all of which, when brought together, collectively create the intricate portrayal of The Girl I Used to Be.
