Little White Lies
Little White Lies | Jennifer Lynn Barnes
20 posts | 15 read | 19 to read
"I'm not saying this is Sawyer's fault," the prim and proper one said delicately. "But." Eighteen-year-old auto mechanic Sawyer Taft did not expect her estranged grandmother to show up at her apartment door and offer her a six-figure contract to participate in debutante season. And she definitely never imagined she would accept. But when she realizes that immersing herself in her grandmother's "society" might mean discovering the answer to the biggest mystery of her life-her father's identity-she signs on the dotted line and braces herself for a year of makeovers, big dresses, bigger egos, and a whole lot of bless your heart. The one thing she doesn't expect to find is friendship, but as she's drawn into a group of debutantes with scandalous, dangerous secrets of their own, Sawyer quickly discovers that her family isn't the only mainstay of high society with skeletons in their closet. There are people in her grandmother's glittering world who are not what they appear, and no one wants Sawyer poking her nose into the past. As she navigates the twisted relationships between her new friends and their powerful parents, Sawyer's search for the truth about her own origins is just the beginning. Set in the world of debutante balls, grand estates and rolling green hills, Little White Lies combines a charming setting, a classic fish-out-of-water story, and the sort of layered mystery only author Jennifer Lynn Barnes can pull off.

There are times when I read books and fall head over heels in love with it, and there are times when I read a book and feel cheated. This is one of those times when I feel cheated. The characters were bland, and the mystery was dull. I don‘t like to completely drag books, but this one was not for me

In spite of of the neon pukepink just inside the cover, I enjoyed this book enough to give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐s. It's a mystery without all rhe blood. Rich debutantes aren't normally the topic of my choosing, this was a book club pick, but the characters were interesting and the story kept me hooked enough to overlook that. I wanted this puzzle solved.

P.S. Spring is almost here! I found these flowers in my yard and they made me smile. 😊

I finished listening to this one a few days ago - it was excellent!! Loved the rags to riches concept that wasn‘t cliche, modern day debutantes, and the narrator breathed life into the story with her wonderful southern accent. I have ordered a print copy for my permanent collection because it was so delightful 💕

Picked up the pace with this one once I really got into it. Hit the halfway mark today and hoping to finish up Saturday at the latest! I'm reading both AM and PM in bed because I'm so addicted! 🤩

A fun YA mystery about a teenage mechanic thrust into southern society and the wealthy family she has never known. Sawyer gets money for college and the opportunity to try to figure out who her father is all for simply agreeing to live either her maternal grandmother and participate in the debutante season. I loved bristly Sawyer from the get go and found this audio charming. Will definitely be picking up the next in the series.

Lovesbooks87 I really enjoyed this one as well! 6mo

This was such a fun read. Campbell, Sawyer, Lily and Sadie-Grace are getting ready for their debutante ball when one of them start blackmailing the others. With lots of twist and turns and a couple big secrets. I didn't want to put this book down. I am very excited to find out that this book is book one! I can't wait to see what the author writes next!

I wonder what kind of trouble they are going to get into, that Campbell is going to need an alibi!

I read this months ago as an eARC (via #Netgalley) and now this pretty, kickass book is out in the world. I LOVE the cover.

I really enjoy Jennifer Lynn Barnes‘ writing and this is no exception. A quick, fun romp in the world of southern debutants from the perspective of a precocious teen mechanic. For me, it wasn‘t nearly as strong as my beloved Fixer series but still worth the read. I‘m looking forward to seeing where she takes us next!

Lovesbooks87 I got this from Target. I can't wait to read it! 7mo

I really enjoyed the Fixer (and the sequel was good too even if it made me sad), so I have hopes for this one.

mdemanatee Did anyone else read a digital arc of this? Is the end really the end? 8mo

Jennifer Lynn Barnes never disappoints. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and this world. I hope this is a series focusing on all the characters one by one.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I got approved for this today on #Netgalley and I‘M SO EXCITED. I loved Jennifer Lynne Barnes‘ last series and I can‘t wait to read what she has out next.

This one sounds great: a teenage mechanic agrees to become a debutant in order to get her college paid for by the grandmother she just met. She uses the time to search for her father‘s identity and stumbles upon some rich-people secrets. Dun, dun, dun.
