Lives In Tandem
Little White Lies by Philippa East is a cracking debut novel that will have the reader’s heart racing to the end. It is a superb contemporary psychological thriller that deals with guilt and what-ifs.
Once a lie is out there and compounded it spirals out of control. The truth lies buried for fear of making a bad situation even worse.
Lives on hold for seven years hope to resume happy families but restoration seems impossible as everyone seems to be keeping secrets. High expectations were unrealistic.
Childhood bonds resume but some things are too broken to be fixed.
The reader becomes involved in the story as it is told from several alternating points of view. We are aware of the guilt, lies and cover-up we just do not know what it is that is being hidden.
Little White Lies was cleverly constructed with realistic and believable characters. Families are more complicated underneath than the surface shows.
I devoured this book as it consumed my every waking moment. Philippa East is clearly has tremendous talent and I cannot wait to read more by her.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
