This debut story is part mystery and part police procedural. I admit I wasn’t sure at first as it took me a while to warm to the lead character, Cat, but she definitely won me over and by the end I loved her! (Anyone who can “do a little Shirley Bassey” is fine by me.)
By the time you get to the middle of the book there are twists-a-go-go and by the end you can see how cleverly it has been written. There were many points in the second half where I gasped out loud and the ending is really good.
I don’t know what’s next for Cat, but I hope there is more to come from Caz Frear. Thank you to NetGalley and Bonnier Zaffre for the ARC of Sweet Little Lies.
