Review: Little White Lies by Katie Dale


The 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?
Full of family secrets, surprising twists and unexpected revelations, Katie Dale's second novel will have readers on the edge of their seats.


My Thoughts
Another fantastic read from a UK author who is fast becoming a favourite author of mine. I thoroughly enjoyed every page and can't wait for the author to write more YA novels for me to devour.

Like Katie's previous novel Little White Lies was fast paced and engaging throughout. The storyline twists and turn keeping you getting for the outset and is an emotional roller coaster. I'm deliberately going to keep this review short because I don't want to spoil it for anyone but I will say that I loved it and didn't want to put it down as I wanted to know what happened next. I loved the main character Lou and was fascinated with uncovering her secrets and past and I also loved Christian and finding out more about him and the reasons why he was equally mysterious.

A brilliant YA which I will be highly recommending far and wide

I haven't yet read this book or Katie Dale's previous book but I'm really intrigued by both. I just feel like they'd be stories that I'd really enjoy.
