Little Lovely Things (Paperback)
"Combining the suspense and razor-sharp outlook of a Gillian Flynn novel, Maureen Connolly's debut sizzles. I finished Little Lovely Things in one heartbreaking, tear-batting gulp."--Jenny Milchman, USA Today bestselling author of Wicked River
A mother's chance decision leads to a twist of fate that is every parent's worst nightmare in this gripping thriller. Could any family endure such crippling suspense?
It is the wrong time to get sick. Speeding down the highway on the way to work, her two little girls sleeping in the back seat, medical resident Claire Rawlings doesn't have time for the nausea overtaking her. But as the world tilts sideways, she pulls into a gas station, runs to the bathroom, and passes out. When she wakes up minutes later, her car--and her daughters--are gone.
The police have no leads, and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each new hour passes with no trace of her girls. All she has to hold on to are her strained marriage, a potentially unreliable witness who emerges days later, and the desperate but unquenchable belief that her daughters are out there somewhere.
As uplifting as it is devastating, Little Lovely Things is a poignant mystery about a family shattered by tragedy and a mother's fierce determination to make it whole again--whatever that may take.
Perfect for readers of Watch Me Disappear by Janelle Brown and After Anna by Lisa Scottoline
