One Little Lie Review

Welcome to the Celebrate Lit Blog Tour for One Little Lie by Colleen Coble. I adore Colleen’s books! They just really grab my attention and leave me wanting more. I only wish she had the magical power to write a new book every month lol. But luckily I have several authors I love who write books too, so I have plenty to keep me busy reading until her next release.

Book:  One Little Lie

Author: Colleen Coble

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Release Date: March 3, 2020

It started with one little lie. But Jane Hardy will do everything in her power to uncover the truth in this gripping new romantic suspense.

Jane Hardy is appointed interim sheriff in Pelican Harbor, Alabama, after her father retires, but there’s no time for an adjustment period. When her father is arrested for theft and then implicated in a recent murder, Jane quickly realizes she’s facing someone out to destroy the only family she has.

After escaping with her father from a cult fifteen years ago, Jane has searched relentlessly for her mother—who refused to leave—ever since. Could someone from that horrible past have found them?

Reid Bechtol is well-known for his documentaries, and his latest project involves covering Jane’s career. Jane has little interest in the attention, but the committee who appointed her loves the idea of the publicity.

Jane finds herself depending on Reid’s calm manner as he follows her around filming, and they begin working together to clear her father. But Reid has his own secrets from the past, and the gulf between them may be impossible to cross—especially once her father’s lie catches up with him.

I knew as soon as I read the blurb for this book that I was going to be hooked, and I was right. Oh my goodness this was a great read. Coble had me from the prologue right to the very end. I don’t know how she continues to come up with these brilliant story lines, but I sure am thankful for it!

For starters, I don’t recall ever having a character back story such as this! It was just fascinating to me to see where Jane came from, and how she turned her life around after it. There were so many twists and turns – all pertaining to her background, that I just couldn’t read it fast enough. I need to know how it all tied together – and Coble did a remarkable job of sharing pertinent information at just the right moment. You find out little pieces here and there, which not only keeps the suspense and story line moving, but it keeps you mind working. I love stories that keep my mind going!

Enter Reid and his son. Yeah they were the perfect characters to enter Jane’s life. Now, I can’t really comment on my thoughts towards them, because it would definitely give some spoilers. I can say this – Reid has some secrets of his own, and Coble did a fantastic job of writing this character. His past kind of comes to haunt him throughout the story, and watching him deal with it, and try to maintain his Christian attitude was so fun for me. I think a lot of people will be able to connect to his reactions, his reasoning, and his outcome.

At the end of the day, Coble has delivered another amazing story that will have readers on the edge of their seat. This is one I can see myself reading again in the future – which is fun now that I know what the ending is. I can better see how Coble has dropped hints of the twists throughout the story!

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
