    Not so sweet little lies

    This is acompletely absorbing book from the get go. Caz Frear has created a completely believable world and it isvery hard to believe that she hasn't done her time slogging foot leather as part of the Met. In her acknowledgements she plays down her research but this book lives and breathes so she whatver she did it worked exceptionaly well. Cat Killean is a completely believable character who has her foibles and her personal demons but who never strays in to the damaged detective which is such a find trope of other writers. When staying with her maternal grandmother a teenager, Maryanne Doyle, goes missing and Cat is convinved her father has something to do with it. After all, daddy knows some seriously dodgy people and has definitely been involved in some dodgy dealings even before he moved the family to a rather more salubrious Hertfordshire town than his London pub. Still reeling from a murder investigation involving a young child and whilst takin mandated therapy she is called out to a murder a stones throw from her dad's pub. Alice Lapaine has been murdered and dumped in quiet, Georgian Leamington Square and she an't help but wonder if daddy dearest, or his acquaintances, have been involved. Full of twists and turns you never lose the sense of just how hard it is to find the truth let alone bring it to justice. The pacing of the novel is perfect and the frustration when leads turn in to dead ends is beautifully crafted and in some places you are genuielyt transported in to these characters. Even the bit part players have full characters that although only hinted at you just know that these are real people just doing their job and indulging in the office banter that is surely needed to keep ou same. If you have ever read a police procedural and enjoyedit I am sure you willabsolutely love this book. Quirky, warm, humourous and takes you to tangents you never dreamt of to get through all the little lies and to the truth. Exemplary first novel and I am genuinely excited for the next one.

    ok read

    This is one of those books…. Books that it is difficult to write a review for. While I found the story line interesting, the story itself couldn’t fully pull me in. There was a lot of talk about eating, the Spice Girls and bullying t ex spreading rumors about someone having AIDS. All of this had nothing to do with the story itself. When Maryanne Doyle disappeared in 1998, Cat knows, her dad is telling lies about knowing this girl. I liked the twist and turns and how Alice’s/Maryanne’s life and death is revealed. How Cat ’s dilemma is growing bigger with every new fact she finds out. But something did, that it wasn’t a page turner for me. I had to convince myself to keep reading through some parts of the book. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Bonnier Zaffre!
