Heather Gudenkauf’s LITTLE LIES is a short novella, a prequel for the upcoming riveting LITTLE MERCIES. A story of a social worker, Ellen—a woman balancing her personal and work life as a mother of three, with a husband, and a complex career.

Having read an ARC of LITTLE MERCIES (a 5-star winner), prior to LITTLE LIES, immediately purchased the novella, as was so intrigued with the main character, Ellen, and wanted to learn more about her background.

LITTLE LIES introduces Ellen, as she is called to assist with an investigation. A child has lost his mother in a brutal murder. The body was found beneath a park statue which is similar to a murder thirteen years ago—with a little boy left behind.

Full of suspense, each can be standalone reads; however, highly recommend reading both books, as you will not be disappointed.

I love novels featuring social workers, as they are so undervalued, with huge responsibilities— making for an emotional, and gripping novel. Well done!
