    A fine read, almost more concerned with what it's like to spend half your life in prison and then get thrown back out into society than with the crime (I consider this a positive, to be clear). I think both stories are treated well, though, and it's worth checking out. A f...

    So, grunge nostalgia is a thing. And apparently I have it. Like Carter and Kennedy, the presidentially-named twins at the center of this book, I was a 90s kid. The atmosphere, nostalgia and sense of time form a heady mix in a cauldron of murder, and grunge so potent you can feel the fl...

    "Sometimes the truth threatens us more than the fictions that have been told." oooh, this was a wonderful mystery. I love stories focused around podcasts and the moral dilemma they raise. This one was less about the podcast and much more about the lives affected by a murde...

    Something that seems to be a theme lately with mystery books that I have read is A) sisters and B) one of them spending time in prison for a crime that they didn't commit. Little Threats by Emily Schultz was another one in that vein of story. The book starts with identical twins C...

    I just love the set-up for this novel - a woman is released from prison after serving a sentence for a crime she doesn't remember. After her release, the memories begin to trickle back as she tries to put together a new life from the wreckage of what she left behind. Lots of twist...

    I really liked this book, I liked the feel and I liked every character. Kennedy was my favorite. Kennedy is released from prison after serving 15 years for murdering her best friend, Haley, even through she doesn't remember anything about it. Now that she's out she has to...

    Wow, I really loved this. 4.5 Rounding up! This was a very well written thriller that successfully kept me in the dark on what would happen next. For some reason, I just knew that Ms. Schultz wouldn't lead me astray and I was definitely correct. It's possible that other re...

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. Based on that intriguing synopsis, I expected Little Threats to have a little more mystery and a little more thrills than it actually produced. Unfortunately, I just found it a little ? maybe a lot ? d...

    Little Threats is much slower mystery/thriller book. I just wished it has more mystery in it. I found myself a little disappointed. We have twin Kennedy and Carter Wynn in this book but the story is much about Kennedy. Kennedy likes to party and one night the party went wrong. Her ...

    This is really disturbing, dark, depressing, claustrophobic, slow-burn whodunit with surprisingly promising story-line embellished with lots of twists, surprises and you didn?t see it coming kind of brilliant ending. Only thing I didn?t like was the slowness which also makes yo...

    Not bad, but also not that original. It reminded me a lot of Jar of Hearts. Best part was the amount and accuracy of all the 90s and grunge references. I found it rather inconsistent plot wise speaking, especially when it totally forgot to portrait how all those years in prison affe...

    Little Threats is a slower-paced mystery/thriller that's part mystery, part character study, and part ode to the 1990s. I won't lie; the book is much slower paced than books usually are in this genre, but if you like a leisurely read that captures some extremely complicated a...

    Thank you G.P. Putnam's Sons/Penguin Group and Netgalley for the advanced copy. This was almost a DNF for me. The premise of this initially drew me in, but the overall execution was lacking. As this is is an ARC, these examples may be edited with the final version, but wri...
