A Traveling Sister Read with Kaceey!

Review by Norma with Kaceey’s review below:

LITTLE BLACK LIES by SHARON BOLTON is a dark, haunting, emotional, and an extremely  suspenseful thriller with an absolutely gripping and clever storyline that grabs your attention almost immediately and doesn’t let go until the very last sentence.  We actually had to put this book on hold because of a few sister reads that we were both participating in and it sure didn’t take us long to get right back into the story (maybe we had to refresh our memory a teeny bit) when we picked it up again and then our other sister reads were put on hold!

SHARON BOLTON delivers in our opinion the perfect thriller here because of all of it’s surprising twists and turns and that ending, wow……we were totally blown away!  We have read quite a few thrillers lately and this one definitely left us feeling totally elated and gasping in awe when we were finished because of how awesome we both thought this book was!

To sum it all up it was unpredictable, suspenseful, and a fast-paced read with an ending that was absolutely brilliant which we both found to be totally satisfying. We already have our next Sharon Bolton novel picked out.  Highly recommend!!!


Review by Kaceey

A Traveling Sister Read with Norma!

A heart-wrenching, dark and emotional read. Sharon Bolton does it again!

You are quickly drawn into a deeply tragic tale of two lifelong friends, torn apart by a sudden, horrid event that leaves them both emotionally fragile and psychologically damaged. One looking for revenge, the other barely hanging by a thread.

Catrin and Rachel grew up together on the Falkland Islands. Both married with two young sons. Soon each is pregnant and thrilled to have a third son on the way. Then, on a day like any other, everything in their lives change.

The pain both Catrin and Rachel feel is palpable. Witnessing them in their desperate struggles is heartbreaking.

The layers to this book are wonderfully intricate, as Sharon Bolton weaves her web to deliver the perfect thriller. The twists kept coming, keeping me guessing and gasping right up to the very last line. Highly recommend! Already looking to pick up another Sharon Bolton novel!
