Little White Lies

"I'm not saying this is Sawyer's fault," the prim and proper one said delicately. "But." Eighteen-year-old auto mechanic Sawyer Taft did not expect her estranged grandmother to show up at her apartment door and offer her a six-figure contract to participate in debutante season. And she definitely never imagined she would accept. But when she realizes that immersing herself "I'm not saying this is Sawyer's fault," the prim and proper one said delicately. "But." Eighteen-year-old auto mec...

    I liked Sawyer as a character, an eighteen year old mechanic who has learned to do everything on her own because her mother was a teenaged mom not interested in truly caring for and loving her daughter. They've lived together and handled their business while she flits to jobs and men. ...

    Cover: 3/5 (I like it) Story: 4/5 (I really liked it) **There might be slight spoilers here, but nothing major** I wanted to read this book when I heard it had Gilmore Girls vibes to it. And it does... sort of. The main character, Sawyer, was raised by her single mom (who is n...

    I bought this one a whim from Amazon. I had seen it floating around goodreads, but don't remember if I read many reviews for it. Maybe it was part of the giveaways? *shrugs* Thought maybe one of my friends had read it but nope.. someone I follow does so most likely it was from her.. bu...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/12/09/... I knew when I picked up Little White Lies that it might be a little outside my wheelhouse, but what I didn?t anticipate was how much fun it was going to be. Set in the world of debutante balls and grand est...

    Y'all, I love me some Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I love when she goes dark and creepy and serial killer. And now I love when she goes poofy and poised and in search of clues. A mystery of debutante proportions? Yes, please! The family dynamic was perfection, as was the narrator for the audi...

    I think this book was about 100 pages too long. What starts off as an intriguing mystery devolved into a slightly less interesting family drama. I love this author, so I hoped to love this one, but I think her Naturals series is stronger. ...

    Pub date: Nov 2018 I love Ms. Barnes YA mysteries and this one is even better with awesome main character Sawyer Taft! Her deadpan humor and take no BS attitude while having to navigate her newly found Southern high society family is fun and addicting. While the mystery of her father?...

    Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes was everything I hoped it would be when I picked it up. There are so many things that are uncovered throughout this book that I can?t even get into it all but I promise, no spoilers. Sawyer Taft grew up on the wrong side of town and the on...

    Fun and fast paced. Loved the "fish out of water" premise and the emphasis on family and friendship over romance. Plot in a nutshell: Wayward daughter of a fancy Southern family gets pregnant as a teenager and years later, her own teen daughter, a mechanic and bar employee, gets br...

    I would usually steer away from books about Debutante balls and the drama that might accompany such events, but Little White Lies is written by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, so instead it became one of my most anticipated reads of 2018. And it did not disappoint. Only Barnes could create such ...

    3.5 stars I *love* this author so I could not pass up her latest book. It did not disappoint! I enjoyed the characters, the scandal, the one-liners, the zingers, and the banter. Well done, Barnes. -------- Full review can be found here: https://agingerlyreview.wordpress.com......

    I am a sucker for anything with debutantes, so I was all over this book when I saw the synopsis. I loved Sawyer. She?s sassy and sarcastic and it was a blast being in her head while all of this unfolded. There?s quite a group of characters here and even though I loved all of th...

    Mini review: DNF I received this E-ARC via Disney Hyperion and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Jennifer Lynn Barnes is one off the many authors whose works' I have been trying to get into. Partly because of the heroine in The Fixer. I have come to accept that this is...

    My rating: 4.5 Stars! The twenty-first century still has debutante balls? Do they still make white gloves? For $500,000, street-savvy Sawyer is about to find out about more than which fork to use when her long-lost grandmother, matriarch of a wealthy southern family makes her an off...

    2.5 I was so excited to get into the story but unfortunately, I found it to be very underwhelming. I didn?t care for the whole debutante plot line and I didn?t like how the story had alternating ?before and after? chapters. Since the ?after? chapters are just small snipp...

    [3.5/5 stars] Jennifer Lynn Barnes is one of my favorite writers for her intelligent, almost interactive writing style. She?s an author I trust to take me on a wild ride and keep me guessing the entire way. Little White Lies had all of those great components (even if it was a little ...

    3.5/5 I think my main problem with this story is that the characters are not super developed and the focus is on the plot. I tend to prefer character driven novels and wish we got to see more devolvement from these characters; they all seemed to have promise. But, since I did not ha...

    Sawyer is a feisty "anti-Debutante". The internal dialogue is often hilarious, but this probably should have been two books (i.e., the Dreaded Serial!). The shifting time lines messed me up a bit, and the ending was a bit- odd - what with the twist within the twist. I got the impressio...

    This was really fun and filled with twists. I am going to tell you right now, Grandma Lily was some sort of badass, and I loved her! I also thought Sawyer was fabulous. She made me laugh quite a bit. But the strength of this book was the mysteries and the relationships Sawyer made with...

    What a fun and exciting read! I was highly entertained and I never wanted the story to end!! Sawyer Taft's story was riveting and complex, but also an easy read with so many twists and turns that you never knew what would really be happening next! All of the girls in this group of d...

    Barnes has done it again. When she writes mystery, she writes it good. And her characters are certainly memorable. First of all, the plot was an interesting one. There are a few chapters from the future, but most of it is from "the present". It was quite fun getting to see how they...

    While this was a fun read, it could have easily been shaved down by 25%. The bloated nature gave it a feeling of dragging on, and I think the story could have benefitted from being a bit shorter to give it more of a taut feeling. That said, I adored Sawyer and her journey while being t...

    This is totally like Gilmore Girls meets Gossip Girl! I sat on this review for a few months because my thoughts were all over the place... I had SO much fun with most of this book, but really can't deny that I was seriously underwhelmed by the end and kind of stopped caring. I thin...
