Staff Reviews


I have stayed in my fair share of seedy motels and completely feel like the mind can immediately go to the darkest places.  In Little Pretty Things, we are taken to one of those dark places with the death of an estranged best friend who has returned to her small town holding secrets (and a very large diamond).  I am a HUGE fan of Lori Rader-Day.  She just keeps getting better.  Her twists and turns keep you on the tips of your toes.  Also, her characters are so vivid like you have known them for years.  If you want to read a great mystery that really makes you feel, read this book! -Shane's July Staff Pick, 2015

Description


Mary Higgins Clark Award Winner

OLD RIVALRIES NEVER DIE. BUT SOME RIVALS DO.

Juliet Townsend is used to losing. Back in high school, she lost every track team race to her best friend, Madeleine Bell. Ten years later, she's still running behind, stuck in a dead-end job cleaning rooms at the Mid-Night Inn, a one-star motel that attracts only the cheap or the desperate. But what life won't provide, Juliet takes.

Then one night, Maddy checks in. Well-dressed, flashing a huge diamond ring, and as beautiful as ever, Maddy has it all. By the next morning, though, Juliet is no longer jealous of Maddy--she's the chief suspect in her murder.

To protect herself, Juliet investigates the circumstances of her friend's death. But what she learns about Maddy's life might cost Juliet everything she didn't realize she had.
