Publisher's Summary

From first-time novelist Sandra Block, a gripping pause-resister about a psychiatrist determined to discover the truth about her past.

She helps people conquer their demons. But she has a few of her own...

In the halls of the psychiatric ward, Dr. Zoe Goldman is a resident in training, dedicated to helping troubled patients. However she has plenty of baggage of her own. When her newest patient arrives--a beautiful sociopath who murdered her mother--Zoe becomes obsessed with questions about her own mother's death. But the truth remains tauntingly out of reach, locked away within her nightmares of an uncontrollable fire. And as her adoptive mother loses her memory to dementia, the time to find the answers is running out.

As Zoe digs deeper, she realizes the danger is not just in her dreams but is now close at hand. And she has no choice but to face what terrifies her the most. Because what she can't remember just might kill her.

Little Black Lies is about madness and memory--and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

    "Just didn't love it"

    Story line was ok, but I felt like I was studying for a pharmacy exam through much of it.
    The author spent a little too much time on meds for me, and the narrator was a little too light and sing song to be believable as a doctor. I finished it, but really can't say that I liked it

    Story
    "It's the DSM Five not DSM-V"

    The book was fine....entertaining enough and with good narration...but every time the narrator read the title of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual Five (the Roman numeral is spelled out when referring to the title in speech) as the DSM Vee It made me crazy. Where were the editors or fact-checkers? Argh!

    "Decent..."

    Sandra Block does a good job here in presenting a mystery behind a psychiatrist's background. Certainly not groundbreaking, but it is a nice, not too long, pleasant read. For it being her first book, Block does very well. The narration is good, but not sure the voice was the right fit for character. all in all, worth the credit.

    "Interesting storyline, tough to put down"

    I actually picked this book up by accident, intending to read a book of the same title for a book club selection, but I'm so glad I stumbled upon this one instead. This novel is a well-constructed psychological thriller, revolving around dark secrets and lies.

    Suffering from a nightmare of the night her biological mother died in a house fire and faced with treating a patient who murdered her own mother, Zoe sets out on a search for more information about her childhood and the mother she barely remembers.

    This book was written with the perfect steady pace of twists, nibbles of insight into the truth, and a good amount of humor. There is a lot of build up in the beginning that some may feel is a bit slow, but I felt it was appropriate to build the foundation for the reader as to why this character needs to know more about her past and why something might trigger her persistent search. I hung on to every word until the very end. I'm excited to read future novels from this author.

    Story
    "Almost stopped listening"

    Hard to believe the main character was studying to be a psychiatrist. She seemed pretty clueless. I kept wondering how she made it through school. I think the main character's voice - high pitched and sing songy - also gave the impression that she was irritatingly naive. The ending did surprise me, though.
