A massive thank you to Harper Collins for sending me an ARC of Little White Lies by Philippa East and for letting me be a part of the blog tour.
So the blurb for this book (taken from Goodreads) is:
She only looked away for a second…
Anne White only looked away for a second, but that’s all it took to lose sight of her young daughter. But seven years later, Abigail is found. And as Anne struggles to connect with her teenage daughter, she begins to question how much Abigail remembers about the day she disappeared…
I didn’t really have expectations going into this book. I’m not a massive reader of adult thrillers so I never know whether I’ll enjoy them or not, but this one really peaked my interest.
Character wise I only really liked Abigail, Jess and Robert. I really felt for Abigail, she was taken from her family for seven years and then thrown back into a family she doesn’t know if she can trust. Jess is always so set on being there for her cousin, and she never gave up on thinking Abigail would come back. Robert is such a good example of a step dad, and he’s so good with the whole situation.
I really enjoyed the different twists and turns in this with more secrets being revealed throughout. I didn’t see quite a few of them coming and that kept me wanting to read more. There were a lot of tense, dramatic scenes, which I wouldn’t expect less for a story where a girl is abducted at eight years old and then returned to her family when she’s fifteen.
