    Library- ebook: Overdrive This was a *Sharon Bolton* FIRST for me. ?Black Little Lies? is a stand alone novel. I?ve heard great things about this English author of mystery fiction -especially about her Lacey Flint series- that before I invested time in a series(which I mostly...

    3.5 stars The book is set in the Falkland Islands and provides a picture of the rocky topography, cool climate, bushy vegetation, and abundant animal life (especially birds and whales) of the region. It seems to be a beautiful but harsh environment, and forms an excellent backgrou...

    Ever since I finished this book yesterday I have been debating whether to give it four or five stars, but since after a certain point I couldn't pit the darn book down, five it is. The setting was unusual, the Falkland Islands, and the writing is so wonderfully descriptive, I could ...

    My Number 7 Read and Bronze Gavel for Best Book of 2015 Posted to The Literary Lawyer Bolton at Her Best - 5 Stars Since Gone Girl , there seems to be a rash of books that tells the same story from multiple perspectives and through the eyes of broken characters. While...

    Set on the Falkland Islands in 1994, this is an excellent stand alone novel from Sharon Bolton. Bolton writes with confidence and assurance and this is obviously a novel from an author at the height of her powers. It is a little over a decade after the Falklands war and almost three...

    I'd managed to sidestep war - or rather, I was lucky. I was born 3 years after food rationing ended, following WWII. That war was something that happened to another generation ? my parents and grandparents. I was vaguely interested, from a historical point of view, but it wasn?t my...

    Who to believe? This dark and complex story dealing with grief, guilt, and revenge will leave you questioning the credibility of its three main characters, each of whom are sympathetic. A few times I thought I had the story figured out but each time I was wrong. Although this was not a...

    I finished this book a few hours ago and I am still thinking about it. I have a feeling it will stay with me for a long time. The story is set on the Falkland Islands in 1994 and revolves around three characters: Catrin, Rachel and Callum, who are each struggling with grief and loss...

    Wow... Just wow... I'm in a daze, I don't even know where to begin... Synopsis, yes... I'll start there... The novel is told from three viewpoints and begins with Catrin. Catrin is struggling, grieving from the tragic accidental death of her two children three years prior. Not t...

    "But the woman Ben had married wasn't there any more and neither he nor I knew where to find her." Ah, it happens. I had to "sit with" this book by Sharon Bolton afterwards and feel the grit of its words and close my eyes tightly to the deep impact of the character of Catrin Quinn. ...

    So far this book is my Read of the Year and it is going to take a very special book indeed to overtake it. You can read a book and rate it 4/5 or 5/5 and then every so often one comes along that blows all the others out of the water as far as ratings are concerned and for me, Little Bl...

    I was definitely late to the party with this one, as it was released last year, but undeterred, I delved straight in and didn't want the party to end! The Falkland Islands is the setting chosen for this psychological thriller, a thriller that will leave you thinking about it long af...

    This is a very captivating novel, I had not read any of Sharon's work before. It is fast paced, I had no idea who the killer was and this kept me up turning the pages as I had to know what was going on. There is so much emotion in this story, love, friendship, trust, grief, despair and...

    This is highly recommended for all thriller fans! I just loved it! I just loved this book. It deserved a lot more stars than 5. This book is so hard to review to give it the justice it deserves. First of all I have never been to the Falkland Islands but I sure felt that I was there....

    So, no Lacey Flint in sight ? this is a standalone novel ? and whilst I adore the series fiction from Sharon Bolton if this is not the best thing she has written (so far) I?ll eat my hat. Set in the Falkland Islands, a place that the author brings utterly, vividly to life, we ...

    Firstly I'd like to thank the publisher, author and NetGalley for the ARC. It's much appreciated. I've read all of the Lacey Flint novels but this is the first standalone novel for me. Little Black Lies is an emotionally charged story of unremitting grief, loss, pain and love. It's ...

    4.25 This did not meet my low expectations. It wasn't anything like The Girl On The Train or, oh never mind. It was multilayered and unpredictable. I did not figure things out ahead of time. It had the perfect atmospheric and surprisingly educational setting. I most certainly di...

    After finishing this, I don't know whether I need a nap or a stiff drink. If you've read the author's Lacey Flint series, you know she's a master of creating dark, gripping stories with flawed yet sympathetic characters. That continues in this stand alone novel. The promotional blu...
