Contemporary Fiction / chick lit
Bliss McGowan was satisfied with her life, so satisfied that she
kept herself busy trying to help her best friend Katharine get back
with her husband. Never thinking that she would be a casualty, Mary
Bliss was mortified to find a note left by her husband. The slime
has stolen every single penny and left her and their seventeen-year-old
daughter in a lurch and apparently seems not to care.
Bliss knows she will not be able to pay the bills with her teacher's
salary, so she concocts a plan with Katharine: they will go to Mexico
and buy a death certificate, which will allow Mary Bliss to collect
on the life insurance. The plan becomes so involved that before
she knows it, Mary Bliss is up to her neck in some little bitty
lies as well as some whoppers.
is the story of an ordinary woman resorting to extraordinary actions
to keep her daughter and herself fed and off the streets. Andrews
infuses the story with wit and hilarity, turning a potential downer
of a situation into a laugh-out-loud romp. This book has mystery,
romance, intrigue and, of course humor, and all of these components
gel together to make one heck of a story. Mary Bliss is a character
that almost everyone will be able to relate to. I had a great time
reading Little Bitty Lies and I look forward to the next
Mary Kay Andrews book.
