    Gripping & Atmospheric

    I thoroughly enjoyed Little Girls Tell Tales, an engrossing tale of mystery, chills and suspense. The book is narrated by Rosalie, who stumbled upon a dead body in the marshland behind her house as a 10-year old child. Lost and disorientated, Rosalie is found however, there's no sign of the skeleton and everyone concluded she made it up as she has an inclination to tell stories, as well having as an active imagination. Now, 15 years afterwards, Rosalie is living alone when her estranged brother, Dallin, turns up with Cora, a woman who is convinced that the body Rosalie found all those years ago is her sister. Cora has been searching for sister Simone for years and has tracked her to the area, so Rosalie tries to put her differences with Dallin behind her to help Cora in her search. Rachel Bennett has a very appealing style of writing and the characters she created though not hugely likeable, were very believable. There was a great sense of apprehensiveness and foreboding and I liked the fluidity between past and present. I found Little Girls Tell Tales very readable, the various unfolding events and revelations making the book very gripping. The story-line was fantastic and the suspense was kept at optimum levels, though the pacing was a little slow here and there. In this atmospheric tale of uncertainty and tension the author wrapped everything up very neatly in a swift ending which was rather satisfying. This was an absolute pleasure to read and even if the plot had been less stimulating I would have devoured these pages with equal gusto and enthusiasm. I’ll certainly be looking out for Rachel Bennett’s next book. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel at my request, from One More Chapter via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

    Not Enough

    This book started off strong. I was really interested in the mystery of it and the descriptions of the Isle of Man. And then it started lagging. Another mystery that seemed to just become a soap opera. The description of the bog became redundant and a lot of the conversations were boring. The conversations that would prove important seemed really obvious. A lot of promise. By the end I didn't care much who did it. I finished it yesterday and I'm having trouble remembering more than the basic plot.

    I Enjoyed!!!

    Some of the boggy ponds were so deep that if a girl stepped into one it would swallow her forever… 2004: Rosalie is walking through the wild wetland behind her mother’s home on the isolated Isle of Man when she stumbles across a body. Having strayed from the path and lost her brother, Dallin, it’s hours before she’s discovered, shaken and exhausted. With a reputation for telling stories, not many believe the little girl’s tale of the body in the marsh. 2019: Dallin, estranged from his family, returns unannounced with a woman named Cora by his side. Cora’s sister went missing fifteen years ago and she believes Rosalie was the one who found her. As dangerous secrets are unearthed, Cora and Rosalie start asking questions about a girl who some would rather keep buried… This is a brilliant read. Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start. Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believeable. Great suspense and action with wonderful world building. Can't wait to read what the author brings out next. Recommend reading.

    International thriller

    I received an e Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you to the author, publisher and Net Galley for this opportunity to read and review the book. Little Girls Tell Tales is an unique book to start in that it takes place on the Isle of Man, which is a location I don't often see much in books. This can be a chance to explore a new area but can also be confusing as you may need to acquaint yourself with new plants and animals, as well as a new dialect. In just the first few pages, we learn that there are feral wallabies that make their home in the curraghs (which I had to look up - I just need a bit of a mental picture sometimes.) The book is told in two different time periods, 2004 and 15 years later. The book starts with a discovery of a skeleton when Rosalie is playing in the curraghs with her brother and their friend, so I expected a fast paced thriller. But then the story slows down a bit in some areas. But maybe the pace seemed slow due to distractions while reading. I found it easy to read, but maybe not really memorable characters. This was my first book by the author, though, and I think I'll look for her other book whenever the library re-opens. The new setting did intrigue me. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good International thriller.

    Grammar, grammar, grammar

    Does no-one have an editor anymore or do the editors have as poor knowledge of grammar as the writers? Me & Beth, me & Mum, me & ........... It spoilt what was otherwise quite a good plot.
