Publisher's Summary

Originally published as Little Lies.
Pirriwee Public is a beautiful little beachside primary school where children are taught that ‘sharing is caring'. So how has the annual School Trivia Night ended in full-blown riot? Sirens are wailing. People are screaming. The principal is mortified.
And one parent is dead.
Was it a murder, a tragic accident, or just good parents gone bad? As the parents at Pirriwee Public are about to discover, sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, school-yard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
Please note: This is the same audiobook as Big Little Lies, also available from

Should be 4.5 Stars - Fantastic Surprise

My Wife recommended this without having read it herself. Honestly I started of thinking this was a big mistake. This is a book for women about women. Male characters are very much in second place and I was close to giving in.
That was until about 20% in and then I became addicted and it was 5 star all the way. The Story of middle class families in small town Australia where the incident takes place is simply brilliant. Slow and atmospheric it just hooks you in and you need to know more.
Not just a who done it but also a to whom.
Frighteningly I think I know all the Characters in this book and they all live in my home town in Scotland. That is why this book is so good. You will know the characters
Love this book Thank you
