J-Dub’s Review of Little Black Lies by Sarah Boltonย 

This fictional story is a nice departure from the heart wrenching true life dramas I have been favoring lately.  Still the theme is gritty and dark … human psyche stuff.  Just what are we humans capable of?  

As always, no spoilers here.  The story unfolds everything in the jacket description sans the person that done it.  From the beginning there is no guesswork.  Or so one believes.  Makes me question for the millionth time if we ever really know anyone. Rhetorical but no.  I don’t even know what I’m capable of myself. 

The same events which occurred over a five day period from October 31 to November 4, 1994 are repeated in three parts from the point of view of the main characters Catrin, Callum and Rachel.  Set to the backdrop of the Falkland Islands during a solar eclipse no less.  Coincidentally in real life we’ll have a solar eclipse tomorrow 8/21/17. 

Good character development and nice pace makes this mystery an easy read.  You’re engaged and guessing until the very end.  And then just when you think you’ve got it, you’re stunned. 

I rate this 4.92 stars โœจ out of 5.  Definitely a recommended read.  This book is my local branch library’s August book club selection.   I plan to attend and I’m excited about participating ๐Ÿ˜Š 

As always more to come.
