    Wowza! What a cracking debut novel "Sweet Little Lies" is! I defy anyone to start reading this and not be hooked after the first few pages. Cat Kinsella was always a daddy's girl. When 17 year Maryanne Doyle goes missing in the summer of 1998 Cat's dad denies ever knowing her. Howeve...

    Even though it feels like it took me FOREVER to finish this book, I rather enjoyed it. It was clever with good characterization as well as a compelling plot. It was not as fast-paced as I had expected it would be, but never boring either. I am a fan of mystery books (or books in genera...

    As family Christmases go, asking your father if he has an alibi before the turkey has even been digested might seem a little ill-advised. For everyone but DC Cat Kinsella that is, whose relationship with her father, Michael McBride, saw him go from hero to zero when as a trusting eight...

    Caz Frear won The Richard and Judy Search for a Bestseller competition with Sweet Little Lies. This was enough to intrigue me. This is very much a police procedural story, with a dash of the psychological. We follow a rather funny little girl aged eight in 1998 and then eighteen yea...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com Sweet Little Lies is a sharp, intelligent novel which offers a more emotive side to the usual police investigation novels, because DC Cat Kinsella?s own family may be snarled up in their most recent case: the murder of Alice Lapaine, and an old...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Bonnier Zaffre for an advance copy of Sweet Little Lies, a police procedural set in London featuring DC Cat Kinsella. Cat and the team are summoned to a murder scene where a woman's body has been dumped. When the body is identified the real puzzle...

    I really enjoyed Sweet little lies. It starts slow but half way through the novel it gets fast. It keeps you guessing and doubt everyone, it?s what I love about psychological thriller. This is Caz Frear?s debut novel and honestly, I am looking forward to read more by her. I am wond...

    Firstly I need to say OMG is this really a debut?  Sweet Little Lies is a cracking thriller, original, pacy, gripping with some fantastic characters that for some inexplicable reason got under my skin. Cat Kinsella is a Detective Constable on the Murder Team in London who I instant...

    Cat Kinsella makes this book as far as I'm concerned. She's compelling, flawed and disillusioned to the point you can't help but root for her. To top it off her quick wit and her unique observations will no doubt have you falling in love with her. The dialogue and relationships are als...

    ?Justice? That?s a bit of a lofty goal. I?ll settle for the basic rule that says bad people get punished.? DC Cat Kinsella?s past and present collide when a current murder investigation throws up links to the disappearance of a girl she knew as a child, and who was never...

    A Gayle recommendation and an excellent one too. All the ingredients of a good detective/thriller with the added bonus of being set in London. Only docked a star as it was a little bit ?convenient? in the end and thought it was a bit rushed to finish. But an entertaining read. ...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Bonnier Zaffre for an advance copy of Sweet Little Lies, a police procedural set in London featuring DC Cat Kinsella. Cat and the team are summoned to a murder scene where a woman's body has been dumped. When the body is identified the real puzzle...

    I really enjoyed Sweet little lies. It starts slow but half way through the novel it gets fast. It keeps you guessing and doubt everyone, it?s what I love about psychological thriller. This is Caz Frear?s debut novel and honestly, I am looking forward to read more by her. I am wond...

    Firstly I need to say OMG is this really a debut?  Sweet Little Lies is a cracking thriller, original, pacy, gripping with some fantastic characters that for some inexplicable reason got under my skin. Cat Kinsella is a Detective Constable on the Murder Team in London who I instant...

    Cat Kinsella makes this book as far as I'm concerned. She's compelling, flawed and disillusioned to the point you can't help but root for her. To top it off her quick wit and her unique observations will no doubt have you falling in love with her. The dialogue and relationships are als...

    ?Justice? That?s a bit of a lofty goal. I?ll settle for the basic rule that says bad people get punished.? DC Cat Kinsella?s past and present collide when a current murder investigation throws up links to the disappearance of a girl she knew as a child, and who was never...

    Wowza! What a cracking debut novel "Sweet Little Lies" is! I defy anyone to start reading this and not be hooked after the first few pages. Cat Kinsella was always a daddy's girl. When 17 year Maryanne Doyle goes missing in the summer of 1998 Cat's dad denies ever knowing her. Howeve...

    Even though it feels like it took me FOREVER to finish this book, I rather enjoyed it. It was clever with good characterization as well as a compelling plot. It was not as fast-paced as I had expected it would be, but never boring either. I am a fan of mystery books (or books in genera...

    I had heard good things about Sweet Little Lies so of course I had to check it out to see what it was like. Sweet Little Lies is the winner of the Richard & Judy Search for a Bestseller competition and I can see how it won. Packed with unreliable narrators, twisty and with plenty ...

    It?s been a long time coming this book and it was highly recommended to me before I got around to it, so I had quite high expectations for it. While it wasn?t the best thriller / mystery I?ve ever read, I did end up really enjoying this one! I don?t really like police proced...

    Imagine my surprise when I started the book and discovered that this wasn?t a psychological thriller, as I expected from the blurb, but a police procedural! After my initial shock, I admit I was captured by this great book from the very beginning. I?ve read other reviews stating...

    Sweet Little Lies was one of my highly anticipated summer reads, and I?m happy to report that it did not disappoint! Based on the blurb I read for this novel, I went into it expecting a psychological thriller, and like many of my fellow bloggers, I was surprised to find Sweet Litt...

    3.5 Stars. A bit of an unusual spiral here. Well, at least to me it was unusual. So we have Cat, 28 yo policewoman. She is quite a character, kind hearted and hard working, she had encountered first hand a gruesome crime scene and that has affected her quite a lot. Not that it was th...

    Cat Kinsella is a Detective Constable with the Met based in London.In the early hours of the morning she is called to the scene of a murder in Islington.The body of Alice Lepaine has been discovered not far from the pub that is run by Cat`s father. Since she was a young girl Day had...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com Sweet Little Lies is a sharp, intelligent novel which offers a more emotive side to the usual police investigation novels, because DC Cat Kinsella?s own family may be snarled up in their most recent case: the murder of Alice Lapaine, and an old...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Bonnier Zaffre for an advance copy of Sweet Little Lies, a police procedural set in London featuring DC Cat Kinsella. Cat and the team are summoned to a murder scene where a woman's body has been dumped. When the body is identified the real puzzle...

    I really enjoyed Sweet little lies. It starts slow but half way through the novel it gets fast. It keeps you guessing and doubt everyone, it?s what I love about psychological thriller. This is Caz Frear?s debut novel and honestly, I am looking forward to read more by her. I am wond...

    Firstly I need to say OMG is this really a debut?  Sweet Little Lies is a cracking thriller, original, pacy, gripping with some fantastic characters that for some inexplicable reason got under my skin. Cat Kinsella is a Detective Constable on the Murder Team in London who I instant...

    Cat Kinsella makes this book as far as I'm concerned. She's compelling, flawed and disillusioned to the point you can't help but root for her. To top it off her quick wit and her unique observations will no doubt have you falling in love with her. The dialogue and relationships are als...

    ?Justice? That?s a bit of a lofty goal. I?ll settle for the basic rule that says bad people get punished.? DC Cat Kinsella?s past and present collide when a current murder investigation throws up links to the disappearance of a girl she knew as a child, and who was never...

    A Gayle recommendation and an excellent one too. All the ingredients of a good detective/thriller with the added bonus of being set in London. Only docked a star as it was a little bit ?convenient? in the end and thought it was a bit rushed to finish. But an entertaining read. ...

    I can see exactly why this book won the Richard and Judy Search for a Bestseller Competition, what a find Caz Frear is! I was absolutely addicted to Sweet Little Lies, it has a gripping storyline right from the start and a female protagonist that you?re not quite sure you should care...

    As the winner of the 2017 search for a new bestseller from the Richard and Judy book club, I anticipated a fast paced thriller that packed a punch. Stories with a strong female lead always appeal to me anyway. The book begins rather tediously but soon the storyline begins to develop an...

    Wowza! What a cracking debut novel "Sweet Little Lies" is! I defy anyone to start reading this and not be hooked after the first few pages. Cat Kinsella was always a daddy's girl. When 17 year Maryanne Doyle goes missing in the summer of 1998 Cat's dad denies ever knowing her. Howeve...

    Even though it feels like it took me FOREVER to finish this book, I rather enjoyed it. It was clever with good characterization as well as a compelling plot. It was not as fast-paced as I had expected it would be, but never boring either. I am a fan of mystery books (or books in genera...

    As family Christmases go, asking your father if he has an alibi before the turkey has even been digested might seem a little ill-advised. For everyone but DC Cat Kinsella that is, whose relationship with her father, Michael McBride, saw him go from hero to zero when as a trusting eight...

    Here's a slightly different than normal review. Because this is a very different from normal police procedural crime novel. I won't go through the synopsis because you can read it for yourselves, but I recommend this to ALL MY FOLLOWERS WHO LOVE BRITISH CRIME. Thoughts Wow! Was th...

    I had heard good things about Sweet Little Lies so of course I had to check it out to see what it was like. Sweet Little Lies is the winner of the Richard & Judy Search for a Bestseller competition and I can see how it won. Packed with unreliable narrators, twisty and with plenty ...

    Caz Frear won The Richard and Judy Search for a Bestseller competition with Sweet Little Lies. This was enough to intrigue me. This is very much a police procedural story, with a dash of the psychological. We follow a rather funny little girl aged eight in 1998 and then eighteen yea...

    It?s been a long time coming this book and it was highly recommended to me before I got around to it, so I had quite high expectations for it. While it wasn?t the best thriller / mystery I?ve ever read, I did end up really enjoying this one! I don?t really like police proced...

    3.5 Stars. A bit of an unusual spiral here. Well, at least to me it was unusual. So we have Cat, 28 yo policewoman. She is quite a character, kind hearted and hard working, she had encountered first hand a gruesome crime scene and that has affected her quite a lot. Not that it was th...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com Sweet Little Lies is a sharp, intelligent novel which offers a more emotive side to the usual police investigation novels, because DC Cat Kinsella?s own family may be snarled up in their most recent case: the murder of Alice Lapaine, and an old...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Bonnier Zaffre for an advance copy of Sweet Little Lies, a police procedural set in London featuring DC Cat Kinsella. Cat and the team are summoned to a murder scene where a woman's body has been dumped. When the body is identified the real puzzle...

    I really enjoyed Sweet little lies. It starts slow but half way through the novel it gets fast. It keeps you guessing and doubt everyone, it?s what I love about psychological thriller. This is Caz Frear?s debut novel and honestly, I am looking forward to read more by her. I am wond...
