In a suburban Atlanta neighborhood where divorce is as rampant as kudzu, Mary Bliss McGowan doesn't notice that her own marriage is in trouble until the summer night she finds a note from her husband, telling her he's gone. Stunned and humiliated, a desperate Mary Bliss, left behind with 17-year-old daughter Erin and a mountain of debt, decides to salvage what's left of her life by telling one little bitty lie. At first she simply tells friends and family that Parker is out of town on a consulting job. Then, the lies start to snowball, until Parker turns up dead. Or does he?

Mary Bliss's formerly staid existence careens into overdrive as she copes with an oversexed teenager, an elderly mother-in-law with strange delusions, and the sudden but delicious shock of finding herself pursued by two men; the next-door neighbor who's looking for a suitable second wife, and a dangerously attractive ex-cop who's looking for the truth about Parker McGowan.

Little Bitty Lies is a comic Southern novel about all the important things in life: marriage and divorce, mothers and daughters, friendship and betrayal, small-town secrets, and one woman's lifelong quest for home. And the perfect recipe for chicken salad.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill Morris | 2/17/2014

    " A feel good book about a woman who is screwed by her husband, but is able to pull herself together and move on. Everyone will wish they had a friend like Katherine. Not a book requiring lots of thinking and it concludes with a happily-ever-after type of ending - but, in reality, that is what I needed!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia Jones | 2/17/2014

    " Fun and funny book. Best beach book I've read in a while. "

    " Not one of her better efforts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 2/11/2014

    " This was a fun little read. Very light and fluffy, but pretty much perfect for a summer beach read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tenna | 2/10/2014

    " I didn't enjoy this one as much as the rest of Andrews' books but still a fun read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin Redmond | 1/26/2014

    " A funny story about 2 best friends, their small neighborhood (and all the gossip that goes along) and their ups and downs with their husbands. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Duncan | 1/25/2014

    " A fun, fast-moving romp with good character development and realistic events. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erynn Hassinger | 1/19/2014

    " Completely worth it for the chicken salad recipe if nothing else!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dominique | 1/14/2014

    " I loved this book. I loved reading what this woman was going to do next and it was entertaining throughout the entire book. I would recomment this one to every woman! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JG (The Introverted Reader) | 1/5/2014

    " There's probably not really any redeeming quality to this book, but it was a very fun, easy, quick read. Probably great for the beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/29/2013

    " Crazy story, crazy turns! Not a very good LDS book though due to racy scenes and some language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megans | 12/17/2013

    " I can't say I loved this as much as Hissy Fit, but it was unpredictable and fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 11/30/2013

    " Mary Kay Andrews writes another great girlfriend adventure. Great easy read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Strawn | 11/11/2013

    " Loved it like all her other books. Not my favorite but still very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon Davis | 11/2/2013

    " This was a good summer read, but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as her Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krissy | 10/23/2013

    " I enjoyed the story although slightly predictible "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 9/11/2013

    " This is the third book I have read by Mary Kay Andrews. I am thoroughly enjoying these southern based stories. The characters and all that they go through keep me interested and wanting to really see where the story will go. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephenie | 9/4/2013

    " Not one of my favorites, but a quick and easy sit-by-the-pool read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tessa | 7/26/2013

    " Reading until I can find a book store that isn't sold out of Eclispe! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 6/22/2013

    " I was infuriated with the husband and would have slapped both the mother-in-law and the daughter. I cannot imagine why Mary Bliss was so nice about her husband leaving her destitute; than goodness she was strong and resourceful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lora | 6/3/2013

    " A fun, light, fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Bentz | 4/18/2013

    " One of my fav southern authors - her formula holds true, southern belle wronged by a cad husband who shows her pluck and prevails in the end, but a fun read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bree Brown | 1/4/2013

    " As an Atlanta native, I enjoyed this book set in Buckhead, finding myself smiling at the many recognizable landmarks Andrews mentions. A bit drawn out at times, but overall, an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Labelle | 1/2/2013

    " I quite enjoyed the quirky Mary Bliss :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trecois | 11/23/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila Kerber | 9/30/2012

    " Lighthearted and funny. I found myself laughing outloud. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessi | 6/3/2012

    " Didn't hate it, but didn't love it. I'd say it drew out a little, but that could be because I took a huge break while reading it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth (M) mowry | 12/27/2011

    " Andrews might be enjoyable but I'll never find out because this first one in the series was so dumb. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Z : ) | 10/18/2011

    " This is the first time I've read a book where the heroine tries to fake the death of her husband. A bit implausible, but that's totally acceptable in chick lit. Another good one from Mary Kay Andrews. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marylu Sanok | 7/12/2011

    " This was a good book and I love this author's style and humor. This will be the next selection of our book club. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moira | 5/11/2011

    " Frivolous and fun. Best friends jokingly plan the murder of a louse then find out the hard way that liars can't always control their lies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 4/2/2011

    " A funny story about 2 best friends, their small neighborhood (and all the gossip that goes along) and their ups and downs with their husbands. "

    "
