Welcome to my stop on the #blogtour for Three Little Truths by Eithne Shortall! Shortall is a new author (to me) and I was excited to get stuck in with this intriguing sounding story.
On the idyllic Pine Road, three women are looking for a fresh start…
Martha was a force of nature, but since moving to Dublin under mysterious circumstances, she can’t seem to find her footing.
Robin was the ‘it’ girl in school. Now she’s back at her parents’ with her four-year-old, vowing that her ex is out of the picture for good.
Edie has the perfect life, but she longs for a baby, the acceptance of her neighbours, and to find out why her dream husband is avoiding their dream future.
The friendships of these women will change their lives forever, revealing the secrets, rivalries and scandals that hide behind every door…
I enjoyed Three Little Truths. It was a lovely soap opera of a book with a cast of characters I felt I really got to know and connected with; with a modernised slant of the introduction of WhatsApp messages punctuating the narrative.
This book felt like a curtain twitcher’s dream; fabulous gossipy conversations between friends with some cosy mystery thrown in together with secrets whispering from the pages. The characters really came to life and the addition of the WhatsApp messages made the connection feel more intimate, making the reader feel more involved.
This was an absorbing read and I found myself smiling at the tiny community where everyone knows everyone’s business and I enjoyed watching how events unfolded.
Three Little Truths was a delightful, easy read; perfect to read on a cold day, curled up by the fire with steaming cup of tea.
Three Little Truths is out now in paperback and you can buy it here
