Thanks to Suzy Approved Book Tours, I am one of the stops of the book tour for Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly. #partner
This book is getting quite a bit buzz- and book bloggers such as Steph’s Fiction, Jenn Tarheel Reader, Mack at PhDiva and Berit at Audio Killed the Bookmark really enjoyed this book. Book blogger Linda from Linda’s Book Obsession even had a chance to interview Maureen about her writing style + more!
About Little Lovely Things:
A mother’s chance decision leads to a twist of fate that is every parent’s worst nightmare.
Claire Rawlings, mother of two and medical resident, will not let the troubling signs of an allergic reaction prevent her from making it in for rounds. But when Claire’s symptoms overpower her while she’s driving into work, her two children in tow, she must pull over. Moments later she wakes up on the floor of a gas station bathroom-her car, and her precious girls have vanished.
The police have no leads and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each 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.
Little Lovely Things is the story of a family shattered by an unthinkable tragedy. Played out in multiple narrative voices, the novel explores how the lives of those affected fatefully intersect, and highlights the potential catastrophe of the small decisions we make every day.
Praise for Little Lovely Things:
“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. Connolly takes risks that make the reader’s heart start anew. Finding shards of hope amidst the chaos of tragedy is a testament to both the writer, and the characters she creates.”
–Jenny Milchman USA Today bestselling author of Wicked River
“Debut author Connolly’s poetic sensibility shines through the prose in scenes that shimmer with emotion…hope is present throughout, a beacon carrying the reader to the final pages.”
