Book review: Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

This lady is one of my absolute favourite authors, and I leapt at the chance of reading this book as soon as it came out in hardback.  I simply could not resist. The book tells the story of three women who are friends and whose children all attend the same school.  Madeleine is my favourite […]
