Review: Sweet Little Lies by Bianca Sloane

Summary

But before she can, Kelly learns devastating secrets about her husband, and starts a frantic mission to unravel the mystery of the man she married and murdered – all while trying to stay one step ahead of a dogged police detective determined to bring her to justice.

Review
The Lifetime Movie Network, has nothing on this book. I haven’t been this excited over a suspense novel in a long time. From the first few pages, you get instantly hooked. When you first read about the premise, I’m sure in your mind you think you know exactly how the story might unfold. There is no amount of predictability that would have foreseen all the twists and turns that came from reading this book. It was just simply, awesome!

This was one of those stories that no matter how fast you hit the forward button, it just wasn't fast enough. It was well written with a fast pace that never lost it edge.  What I love about her book was that every chapter is themed, so you know exactly where you are going. As the plot unravels, you think you know where it is going and then you get thrown by curve balls that send you in a whole different direction. As a reader, there is not one moment when you want to put it down. 

Without giving away too much, here is an introduction to the characters:

Kelly Monroe: She is a former model who currently is running a cosmetic company. She married successful lawyer Mark Monroe. She has the perfect life with the man of her dreams or so she thought. Then comes that moment in a woman’s life where there are some things that might change everything forever. Her discovery of the unthinkable drove her to accidently make a decision that changed both their lives forever. 

Mark Monroe: He is a successful lawyer who married Kelly Ross. He had a rough upbringing but made something of his life. He had the dream life but like many had a something in his past that he wanted to forget. Then one day everything changed. Was he the man Kelly thought he was? 

Geneva: If the characters from Fatal Attraction and Misery were a pair within triplets, than she would be their other sister. Can you say CRAZY? I will let you read to find out why because I don’t want to ruin anything for you.

This book has everything that will glue you to your chair. I’m telling you, once you sit down you won’t get up. You have all the goodies of a really good suspense novel. The only way I can sum this up is to say this was like being on a roller coaster that has no off button. Even the ending was a shocker! If you want a fun read that you can thoroughly enjoy, grab her book.
