Publisher's Summary

In a suburban Atlanta neighborhood where divorce is as rampant as kudzu, Mary Bliss McGowan doesn't notice that her own marriage is in trouble until the summer night she finds a note from her husband, telling her he's gone. Stunned and humiliated, a desperate Mary Bliss, left behind with 17-year-old daughter Erin and a mountain of debt, decides to salvage what's left of her life by telling one little bitty lie. At first she simply tells friends and family that Parker is out of town on a consulting job. Then, the lies start to snowball, until Parker turns up dead. Or does he?Mary Bliss's formerly staid existence careens into overdrive as she copes with an oversexed teenager, an elderly mother-in-law with strange delusions, and the sudden but delicious shock of finding herself pursued by two men; the next-door neighbor who's looking for a suitable second wife, and a dangerously attractive ex-cop who's looking for the truth about Parker McGowan.
Little Bitty Lies is a comic Southern novel about all the important things in life: marriage and divorce, mothers and daughters, friendship and betrayal, small-town secrets, and one woman's lifelong quest for home. And the perfect recipe for chicken salad.


What the Critics Say

"This supremely entertaining story sets Andrews up to be a southern Susan Isaacs....A breezy story fairly brimming with good spirits and feisty humor." (Booklist)

Completely Ridiculous .5 star!

The things that happen in this book would just never happen in reality. Ever. The characters are flat and boring. Southern girls are much more charming and resourceful than these characters (think Ya Ya Sisterhood, or Between, Georgia, even look at Paula Deens story!). The plot was very weak. It never really climaxed and never really came back together at the end. And beleive me, the end doesn't come soon enough. Buy Sweet Ruin or Between, Georgia instead... Happy Reading!

Stop abridging Mary K Andrews books

I have read this book in the past and there was so much detail and storyline left out. You don't really get to see how she interacts with the "detective" and then ends up with him.
