Happy Tuesday!! Getting this out a bit late today – but better late than never!
A bit behind posting my review of Black Dog Summer, but stay tuned! I’m about 2/3rds through Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton, a NetGalley read releasing next Tuesday! (Not to be confused with Little Black Lies by Sandra Block, also read and reviewed this year!) So far so good, no idea where this one is going to go!
“I’ve seen men bigger than me sobbing for their mothers, as they die lonely, freezing, deaths on the opposite side of the planet. I thought it was impossible to shock me. How wrong I’ve been.”

What do you think? Thanks for coming by – please leave your teaser in the comments!
In such a small community as the Falkland Islands, a missing child is unheard of. In such a dangerous landscape it can only be a terrible tragedy, surely…
When another child goes missing, and then a third, it’s no longer possible to believe that their deaths were accidental, and the villagers must admit that there is a murderer among them. Even Catrin Quinn, a damaged woman living a reclusive life after the accidental deaths of her own two sons a few years ago, gets involved in the searches and the speculation.
And suddenly, in this wild and beautiful place that generations have called home, no one feels safe and the hysteria begins to rise.
But three islanders–Catrin, her childhood best friend, Rachel, and her ex-lover Callum–are hiding terrible secrets. And they have two things in common: all three of them are grieving, and none of them trust anyone, not even themselves.
In Little Black Lies, her most shocking and engaging suspense novel to date, Sharon Bolton will keep the reader guessing until the very last page.
