I would give this book 4.75 for a review.
Set in the gentrified south among debutante balls, grand estates and rolling green hills, Little White Lies combines the charm of a fully-realized setting, a classic fish-out-of-water story, and the sort of layered mystery only author Jennifer Lynn Barnes can pull off. When Sawyer Taft agrees to move in with her grandmother, she expects some things to be different, but what she doesn’t expect is to get sucked into a group of over-privileged, yet somehow lovable debs who have—wait for it—kidnapped one of their own in hopes of blackmailing her into keeping their secrets under wraps—secrets which are far bigger and more scandalous than anyone could have imagined. As Sawyer works to uncover the identity of her father, she must also navigate the twisted relationships between her new friends and their powerful parents, and help them discover the villain among them.
My Breif Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this read. I thought it was the prefect mix between Pretty little liars and and a fish out of water storyline. I really thought the characters were so easy to connect to and also characters that you felt immediately connected to. I thought that this book by lynn barnes is not as intense as her previous ones but still a fast pace mystery that was such a fast read. I also enjoy the duel time line in the book. It really kept me wanting to turn the page. I will def be checking out book two. If you enjoyed book like Pretty Little liars but desire a book with strong and more well rounded characters this may the read for you!
My Extended Thoughts!!
Character: I really grew to love these characters. I thought not only were they intreating but they were also super well rounded and compelling to read about. I love the characters in this book and Sawyer was def a highlight of this novel.
Plot: This book def reminded me of books like PLL but with a more tightly would and a bit more realistic plot the sarah novels. I thought the end of the book was a tad more action packed then the first half. It was easy for me to turn the page and keep reading.
Book 2: I am super excited to dive into book 2!
Some Southern States I would like to go too!
I really would love to travel some more and some southern states are on my list. including Alabama and Kentucky. I think they both would be fun to visit but also fun to explore. I also really love exploring new places and also always new book stores! I really think these places would be fun to visit!
Let me know i you have this book on your TBR, in the comments!
