This is a funny, light read. Kept me laughing throughout the book. Finished it in one day. MB's best friend Katherine will keep you entertained. I didn't like the attitude of her daughter Erin, but other than that, it was a good read. Definitely would recommend picking it up if you like witty romances.
Mary Kay Andrews just writes the best southern fluff fiction around. Her books are entertaining and quick and a wonderful diversion. Like eating a piece of divinity fudge. Technically she is an excellent writer with great descriptions, builds good characters and keeps the plot zipping along. Her settings, in the deep south, are just great and she really has it down pat.
'Little Bitty Lies' is a fun book and a great read. Nothing too heavy but just plain enjoyable. I look forward to all her books.
True to Mary Kay Andrews, this book was a very entertaining read. It wasn't, however, as hilarious as some of her other books. If you're looking for an uproariously funny novel from Mary Kay Andrews, try Hissy Fit, or Savannah Breeze. I thought both of those were much, much better!
A comic Southern novel not only about one woman's lifelong quest for home but also about all the important things in life: marriage and divorce, mothers and daughters, friendship and betrayal, small-town secrets - and the perfect recipe for chicken salad.
Cute, humorous story. Mary Bliss McGowan starts counting the number of divorces in her neighborhood, not knowing that her own marriage has hit the skids. Stunned and humiliated she concocts a less embarassing story - her husband, Parker, didn't leave her - he's just simply DEAD!
Little Bitty Lies tells about the important things in a Southern woman's life, marriage, love, divorce, mothers and daughters, and a great recipe for chicken salad!
The back of this book has a quote from Washington Post "You'll want to bitch, bond and run through the backyard sprinklers in your underwear with [the characters]" and this describes this book perfectly!

Growing up in Atlanta this book really brought me back "home" and made me miss being closer to the city. It made me remember the fun times in our own neighborhood, hanging out at the pool club and all the gossip that went on. It was a fun book to read and it has me ready to cook up some chicken salad!
The suspense was great. The main character, Mary Bliss McGowan, makes choices that would never be made if her life had remained status quo. Mary Bliss confirms that revenge is oh so sweet. This book is a page turner just like all of Mary Kay Andrews' books.
Excellent Book!! After the first couple of chapters I was hooked. I didn't want to put this book down. The characters were fun and the story line was great. Katherine the best friend is a great character. This book is a lot of fun and a real page turner.
This book is so funny, I literaly laughed out loud! It is a must read for anyone who has gone through a divorce. The neighbor Katharine has all the anger toward her ex-husband, and carries it out in a funny and sadistic humor. Probably the way anyone who has been divorced feels, but she acts on it.
Definitely a fun Southern novel that takes place in Atlanta. Our heroine takes the reader on a journey through marriage, divorce, mothers and daughters, friendship and deception with much humor and Southern style.
This is a great book set in the south. All of Mary Kay Andrew's books are great fun to read. They are light and humorous and very entertaining. If this is the type of book you like to read then you will not be disappointed.
Mary Bliss trusts her husband to take care of her and their daughter. They live in a good neighborhood in Atlanta where her daughter goes to an expensive private school. Then one day, her husband disappears with all of their money. Mary and her best friend concoct a plan to fake her husband's death. There is a strange man coming around asking questions about her husband. Her daughter stops showing up at home. Can Mary pull off the death of her husband when he is off spending their money? Can she keep up with her neighbors and not let everyone know she is broke? Funny book!
I love all her other books but I couldn't even finish this one. Mary Bliss was just so judgmental towards her best friend in that first chapter I find myself hating her and not being sympathetic to her at all.
I highly recommend all her other books though. They are funny are a quick read. They are also very sweet and definitely there are more romance than explicit sex scenes.
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, Parker, telling her he's gone - and has taken the family fortune with him.
Little Bitty Lies is a comic southern novel not only about one woman's lifelong quest for home, but also about all the important things in life: marriage and divorce, mothers and daughters, friendship and betrayal, small-town secrets - and the perfect recipe for chiken salad.
Andrews is slightly off her game in this tale of a woman abandoned by her yuppie husband, who decides to dig herself out of the financial hole he's left by faking his death to collect on his life insurance. There are some fun moments (doesn't sound like it from the synopsis, does it?), but overall it was less than memorable.

This book kept me intersted to the very end.
Mary Kay Andrews has perfected "southern chick lit!". I absolutely loved it! It was an incredible read. It wasn't my favorite by Andrews, Hissy Fit is the best!, but it is a fun book. It's about uppercrust life and divorce and picking up the pieces all while telling little white lies... It's really funny.
