A few months back while I was visiting my sister, she loaned me her copy of Little Bitty Lies by Mary Kay Andrews. I have never read any of her books, and I admit that I wasn't falling over myself to read one, but when I got back home and realized that I still had the book in my possession, I decided to dive head first into Mary Kay Andrews' scandalous world of Tupperware vixens.Little Bitty Lies is the story of Mary Bliss McGowan, a thirtysomething suburban Atlanta woman who believes that she has it all-a beautiful home, a great marriage, and a happy daughter. But one day, when she finds a note from her husband telling her that he's leaving, Mary Bliss realizes that not everything in her life is as it seems. Her world begins to crumble around her little by little when she discovers that her estranged husband has left her with no money, a pile of bills, and a seventeen-year-old daughter who is rapidly becoming someone Mary Bliss does not even recognize. Not knowing what else to do Mary Bliss, along with her best friend Katherine, cleverly devises a plan to save her home and her family, and with any luck, herself.
Little Bitty Lies is a poignantly funny look at life inside the perfectly manicured Southern neighborhood of Fair Oaks-- a place where affairs and divorces are as commonplace as barbecues and garage sales. Readers sympathize with Mary Bliss' struggles, and cheer her triumphs. Overall, Little Bitty Lies is an enjoyable read--amusing, witty, and truthful. Reading this book is a great way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.
