My review of Little White Lies

Little White Lies by Katie Dale
Release Date: August 1, 2013
Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon | The Book Depository

Little White LiesThe first time Lou meets tall, dark, and handsome Christian, she knows he's hiding something. Why does he clam up every time she asks about his past? Why doesn't he have any family photos and why does he dye his blond hair black? 

Then suddenly his terrible secret is unveiled to the world - and 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 chance meeting was no accident at all ...? 

As lie follows lie, nothing is as it seems, and soon Lou finds herself ensnared in a web of deceit, her loyalties torn, her emotions in tatters as she faces a heart-wrenching dilemma: should she shatter the lives of those she holds dearest, or betray the guy who, against all odds, she's fallen in love with?

Little White Lies is a mystery-thriller that you will not be able to put down to the very end. The storyline is gripping and mysterious. It is a book that will keep you guessing. If you're looking to step away from the fluffy romance contemporaries, pick this up; for you will not regret it!

This story is about Lou. She's having a normal life in university until Christian turns up; but he's not like everyone else. He acts suspiciously and everyone knows he's hiding a big secret which he continues to cover up with lies. Piece by piece, the truth is uncovered and Christian is definitely not who anyone expecting...
Dale has done extremely well delivering a stunning second novel which provides everything and more than what you could ask for from a YA contemporary thriller/mystery. It ticks all the major boxes for me and Dale's writing style is the icing on the cake! 

I enjoyed the characters very much indeed. Lou is extremely interesting and the way she thinks is intriguing to follow. However, sometimes I felt like I needed to slap her round the head and get some sense into her because she's quite confused and naive at times, but the information about her life is slowly revealed to us to keep us on our toes.

Don't brush Little White Lies to the side, definitely give it a go. It is one of a kind with a storyline that will not let you go. There is a romance side, but mainly it focuses on mystery and crime. Perfection.
