Sweet Little Lies by Caz Frear (Book Review #169)

I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.

(Finished Reading: 08/04/18

My 25th book this year)

Cat Kinsella is a detective on the police force. She knew since she was 8 years old this is what she wanted to do. The reason being all those years ago a girl went missing. The police came to ask questions and Cat knows her dad lied. Lied about not knowing the missing girl, lied about ever talking to her or meeting her.

Cat thinks her dad has something to do with the disappearance but she also knows she shouldn’t say anything to the police. She keeps the secret buried.

Now years later, a woman is found dead, close to her childhood home. Close to her father’s place of residence and Cat has to find out the truth behind this death. She also needs to uncover the secrets from all those years ago.


Nicely paced but got a bit long winded towards the end. The plot itself was great and the final reveal was unexpected.

I don’t like difficult parent and child relationships so this book felt uncomfortable to read. Especially due to the circumstances. If you are a detective, can you or do you turn in family or someone you love? The worst thing is speculation and the uncertainty behind what you believe to be true.

I didn’t feel the suspense and excitement in exposing the killer. Yet I still found myself interested in turning the pages to finish the story. Apologies to the author but this book didn’t quite grip me and I unfortunately would not recommend it to other readers.
