Mary Bliss's formerly staid existence careens into overdrive as she copes with an oversexed teenager, an elderly mother-in-law with strange delusions, and the sudden but delicious shock of finding herself pursued by two men; the next-door neighbor who's looking for a suitable second wife, and a dangerously attractive ex-cop who's looking for the truth about Parker McGowan.
Little Bitty Lies is a comic Southern novel about all the important things in life: marriage and divorce, mothers and daughters, friendship and betrayal, small-town secrets, and one woman's lifelong quest for home. And the perfect recipe for chicken salad.

"This supremely entertaining story sets Andrews up to be a southern Susan Isaacs....A breezy story fairly brimming with good spirits and feisty humor." (Booklist)
I have read this book in the past and there was so much detail and storyline left out. You don't really get to see how she interacts with the "detective" and then ends up with him.
The things I know for sure I am are: Christian, Wife, Mother, Daughter, Granddaughter, Sister, American, Patriot, Friend, Teacher, Student, Seeker, and Thinker. I am far from perfect but I do try to be kind, honest, honorable, trusting and trustworthy. Lover of sunshine, books, southern food, vacations in national parks, singing in my car, cookie dough and icing, and cucumber margaritas.
The things that happen in this book would just never happen in reality. Ever. The characters are flat and boring. Southern girls are much more charming and resourceful than these characters (think Ya Ya Sisterhood, or Between, Georgia, even look at Paula Deens story!). The plot was very weak. It never really climaxed and never really came back together at the end. And beleive me, the end doesn't come soon enough. Buy Sweet Ruin or Between, Georgia instead... Happy Reading!
This is a good book, if you can get past the narrator. There are lines that should be funny, if only they were read in the rye voice they in which they were written. If you want to enjoy this book, listen closely and try to hear past the voice of the narrator.
