Description

A nail-biting, gripping psychological thriller

The perfect family...or the perfect lie?

When a child’s scream pierces the night, Mira does what any good neighbor would do: She calls the police. She wants to make sure that Rosie, the little girl next door, is safe. Opening her front door to the police the next morning, Gemma's picture-perfect family is forced under scrutiny of social services.

As her flawless life begins to crumble around her, Gemma must fight to defend the family she loves and protect her daughter from the terrible secret she's been keeping. But who has Rosie been confiding in when Gemma’s back is turned? And why has she lied to the police?

When Rosie disappears without a trace, Gemma thinks she only has herself to blame. That is, until she finds a little pink diary containing a truth even more devastating than the lie....

If you loved The Couple Next Door and Big Little Lies, you’ll adore this razor-sharp, tense, and utterly engrossing page turner about the people we choose to trust and the secrets we keep behind closed doors.

Wonderful Narration! Very interesting story.

I would recommend this book to Audible listeners who love family secrets plots. The neighbor is deliciously twisted as well. I think the thing I liked most is how relatable most Women who have raised Daughters will find some of the emotional scenes. Really enjoyed!

Wanted to throttle characters

The plot of this one was promising,, but, good grief...mom, daughter, neighbor all needed some therapy - maybe a group discount or something. Rosie had issues before her mother blurted out the truth to her. Frankly, I felt like Gemma was an unfit mother, even if she was not physically abusive. The manner in which she dealt with her daughter's behavior was appalling to me. The son received no attention. And how did the fruitcake neighbor keep a long-term job at a school with her issues? Narration was good.

Another great one, Very Realistic

Even though I'm not a mom I quickly fell into the story & thought about the ways these types of things could absolutely occur in real life. Scarily so. Excellent narration too.

What a BRAT!

i don't even know where to start... nosy neighbor, parents that can't get a grip on their child or the mom bending over backwards to make a brat happy. SMH

Not a psychological thriller

This book is categorized wrong. I like psychological thrillers and this book is definitely not. The child is missing for less than 5 minutes of the story. It’s really a story about troubled mother/daughter relationships and meddling neighbors. Most of the characters weren’t easy to like, even Rosie threw ridiculous tantrums for a ten year old child. She was easier to overlook than the adults. The narrator was outstanding! She made a bad book tolerable. Kudos to talented narrators!!

This book should be named, We All Need Therapy!

This book did not do it for me, I found myself wanting to yell at all of these characters! Especially Gemma! she was the most frustrating out of the bunch. Besides that, I felt myself waiting for something to happen, and it was just too slow. It finally sped up with about an hour left in the book, but it was too late. Thumbs down

A Very Odd Novel

Little Liar is an odd book. I am not really sure what the point was, but it did keep me listening. We have a family who lives outside of London with their young daughter Rosie, and their son. Jemma (Mom) is pregnant again and Pete is seemingly basking in his job, married life, and children's love.

But, Jemma's neighbour has a past. She had her baby taken away when she was just 15 years old. She is jealous of Jemma, and reports her to social services for child abuse. Although, Rosie isn't an 'angel' child because she lies about being abused as well. She has terrible temper tantrums and she behaves badly.

Rosie drives Jemma to the point of screaming (and I can't say I blamed her). Every time this little brat would act like a spoiled little witch I wanted to scream at her. My rage built up inside me, too. Jemma felt guilty about getting angry, and her nosey neighbour fills Rosie's head with more ammunition to get Jemma in trouble, and she's already in jeopardy of going to prison for abuse!

The neighbour is suffering from PTSD due to a bad relationship with her mother, and being raped by her mother's boyfriend as a teen- and then having the consequential baby taken from her and put up for adoption. Rosie the 10 year old needs some anger therapy, as does Jemma.

This book is depressing and it has no specific climax. It's one heart ache after another and it screams 'THESE PEOPLE NEED THERAPY' to the reader. It doesn't really fall under a psychological thriller. It's just a story about people who are a complete mess.

It's worth the listen if you can get it on sale. I hated Rosie (that's so awful of me!), but some of the other characters are very likable, and the bond between families (good or bad) is portrayed beautifully by the author.

Can you say the word THERAPY?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I found myself extremely frustrated about the DENIAL of parents to see that their family may just need some therapy; particularly the child. And maybe some effective discipline???

Which scene was your favorite?

I didn't have one

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

I am shocked that, throughout this entire book, the word therapy was never mentioned, which I find absolutely, unbelievably stupid!!
