Review - Little Liar by Clare Boyd

Little Liar by Clare Boyd
Publisher: Bookouture
Release date: 1 February 2018
Back cover blurb: The perfect family... or the perfect lie? To the outside world, Gemma Bradley has it all – a doting husband, high-flying career and two delightful kids – but inside the four walls of her tastefully renovated home, she is a mother at her wits end who has given too many last warnings and counted to ten too many times. When a child’s scream pierces the night, Gemma’s neighbour does what anyone would do: she calls the police. She wants to make sure that Rosie, the little girl next door, is safe. Gemma knows she hasn’t done anything wrong, but the more she fights to defend the family she loves, the more her flawless life begins to crumble around her. Is the carefully guarded secret she’s been keeping suddenly in danger of breaking free? When Rosie disappears, Gemma thinks she only has herself to blame. That is, until she discovers that Rosie has been keeping dark secrets of her own in a pink plastic diary. Distraught and terrified, Gemma doesn’t know where to turn. The only thing she knows is that her daughter’s life is in danger…

Gemma Bradley appears to have it all. A successful career, a loving husband, two wonderful children and another on the way. But she is a mother at her wits end, with her daughter Rosie who is more than a little bit of a handful.

When next door neighbour Mira hears screaming from the Bradley household she assumes the worst and calls the Police. She doesn’t trust Gemma Bradley and sees no reason why she should keep her nose out of her neighbours business.

Gemma hasn’t done anything wrong, Rosie can throw a tantrum that any self respecting two year old would be mightily proud of.

The problem is that Rosie is Ten and should know better.

Gemma struggles to control her daughter, afraid that every time Rosie pushes her to her limits she is going to reveal the secret she has been fighting so hard to keep for the sake of her family.

Mira’s interference threatens to tear the Bradley family apart and expose Gemma’s secret, but Mira has her own secrets that she has kept from her husband for the best part of twenty five years. 

And the more she meddles in the Bradley’s lives, the more she runs the risk of destroying her own.
