Taste of Tuesday | Little White Lies by Katie Dale

little white lies

 

Fans of Pretty Little Liars will be ensnared in this tale of deceit. Christian’s hiding terrible secrets from his girlfriend Lou. But Lou’s told lies as well. What if their accidental meeting wasn’t an accident?

“Tall, dark, and handsome”: the first time Lou meets mysterious Christian, she knows he is The One. But Christian is hiding a terrible secret. Why does he clam up every time Lou asks about his past? Why doesn’t he have any family photos and why does he dye his blond hair black? When Christian’s house goes up in flames, his tires are slashed, and he flees for his life, Lou insists on going with him. But as Christian’s secret is unveiled in front of the whole world, it seems everything he’s ever told Lou is a lie. Can what the media are saying about him really be true? Should Lou trust him? Or is she in terrible danger?

But Christian isn’t the only one keeping secrets. For what if their accidental meeting was no accident at all?


Although I have yet to read the Pretty Little Liars series, I’ve been a fan of the show since it first started, and I have to say I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on this book. Yes it fits the usual ‘tropes’ of YA literature – Girl meets boy, boy has a secret, girl must help him face the terrible thing and love will triumph.

I think the style of how Sara Sheppard did Pretty Little Liars, making it such a hit, was that it was heavily realistic, and extremely warped, but it worked, and worked well. I think that Katie Dales could have the same effect on her series. It sounds intriguing and unique and I cannot wait to read it. Little White Lies releases today across all e-Book platforms, and at all major bookstores.
