About the Book

Release Date: April 2, 2019 
Publisher:  Sourcebooks

A mother’s chance decision leads to a twist of fate that is every parent’s worst nightmare.

Claire Rawlings, mother of two and medical resident, will not let the troubling signs of an allergic reaction to prevent her from making it in for rounds. But when Claire’s symptoms overpower her while she’s driving into work, her two children in tow, she must pull over. Moments later she wakes up on the floor of a gas station bathroom-her car, and her precious girls have vanished.

The police have no leads and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each hour passes with no trace of her girls. All she has to hold on to are her strained marriage, a potentially unreliable witness who emerges days later, and the desperate but unquenchable belief that her daughters are out there somewhere.

Little Lovely Things is the story of a family shattered by an unthinkable tragedy. Played out in multiple narrative voices, the novel explores how the lives of those affected fatefully intersect, and highlights the potential catastrophe of the small decisions we make every day. 

Review

So, this was my first audiobook and I’m really glad that it was! I think for my tastes the only types of audiobooks I would like are suspense/thriller type of ones. It just makes it spooky and makes me want to find out more. Since this was my first one I went through some ups and downs of figuring out how I like to listen to it best. I started off at normal speed and that was just a bit too slow for my attention span. Then I messed up and sped it up too much and couldn’t understand anything. Then, just like Goldilocks, I found the perfect speed in the middle.

This is definitely a story that will pull at your heartstrings. I mean, two missing children is every parents worse nightmare. Plus how realistic this book is, I feel like it’s something I would watch on 48 hours, makes it even more terrifying. This is just one of those completely horrifying situations that the main character thought it was just a bad dream at first. It’s definitely a story that looks into the darker psyche of people and how we handle literal worst case scenarios. It is also definitely a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat needing to find out what is going to happen next.

I really liked how the author approached this story. She utilized multiple perspectives, and while I’m not always a fan of this I think it really worked for this story. It helped round out everything that was happening and keep you captivated as you wait for everything to come together. It also added so much depth to the motivations behind all of the characters. The only thing that I am still mulling over in my mind is the character Jay. I appreciate the Native American representation yet I’m not sure how much I like the use of so many stereotypes with him. But that’s just me nitpicking and possible being oversensitive.
