With Love For Bookouture - Each Little Lie by Tom Bale - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Jen is a single mother and her son Charlie is her whole world. When Jen discovers a neighbor has lost his keys she tries to do the right thing and brings them back. However, that neighborly gesture will cost her dearly, because by returning the keys she's putting her own life in danger. Afterwards Jen is being accused of a crime and she could lose everything she holds dear.

Jen doesn't remember doing the awful thing she's being questioned about by the police, what is happening to her? Has she lost an important part of her memory or is someone trying to frame her and what is the connection between her current difficult situation and her ex-husband? Will Jen be able to stay out of prison and will she be able to keep herself and Charlie safe?

Each Little Lie is a gripping story with many surprising twists and turns. Jen is a dedicated mother. She's kind and honest and she tries to make Charlie's life as fun as possible. She's not longer together with Charlie's father, but she wants to give Charlie as much stability as she possibly can. She's strong and resilient and that is something she needs when things start to go desperately wrong. Jen can only trust her own instincts and she has to be smart to find out the truth behind the crime she's being accused of. This kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough.

Tome Bale's writing has a great flow and he's very good at working with tension. His story is action-packed and fast-paced. There's never a dull moment and unexpected things keep happening to Jen, so he kept me curious from beginning to end. I loved how original Each Little Lie is, there's no other thriller I can compare it to. It's a story about twisted family relationships, relying on yourself and being able to function under pressure. I really enjoyed reading this fantastic thrilling story.

Advice 

If you love a good original thriller, Each Little Lie would be an excellent choice.

  1. Just curious about the use of the pseudonym? Was it your agent's suggestion as part of the publishing deal (kudos by the way!), and if so, why?
