Glen, Claire, Andrea, and Lily had the perfect life until the day Claire had to pull off the road because of dizziness, leave the car running with her daughters in it because of the heat, and then return to find the car and her daughters gone.
Could anything worse have happened? Of course the answer is no. A missing child is a parent's worst nightmare.
We follow the Rawlings family as they move through the heartbreaking days as the police investigate with no luck. As you read you will feel their pain as they remember their daughters and special occasions.
An interesting twist is another story line that will have you guessing how both stories connect.
For a debut novel, Ms. Connolly definitely knows how to put words together to make a fast-paced, tense, unable-to-put-down read with memorable characters.
Even though the subject isn't pleasant, Ms. Connolly did a superb, creative job with the topic and with pulling you into the story line and connecting with the characters.
LITTLE LOVELY THINGS is heartbreaking, heartwarming, and has 98% likeable characters. 5/5
This book was given to me as an ARC by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
