Description

THE NO.1 BESTSELLER BEHIND THE AWARD WINNING TV SENSATION

Get ready for the highly anticipated second series of Emmy & Golden Globe Winning Big Little Lies, starring Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon & Nicole Kidman, by reading the first book . . .
____________

Perfect families, perfect houses, perfect lives.

Three mothers, Jane, Madeline and Celeste appear to have it all . . . but do they? They are about to find out just how easy it is for one little lie to spiral out of control.
_____________

Single mum Jane has just moved to town. She's got her little boy in tow - plus a secret she's been carrying for five years.

On the first day of the school run she meets Madeline - a force to be reckoned with, who remembers everything and forgives no one - and Celeste, the kind beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare, but is inexplicably ill at ease. They both take Jane under their wing - while careful to keep their own secrets under wraps.

But a minor incident involving the children of all three women rapidly escalates: playground whispers become spiteful rumours until no one can tell the truth from the lies.

It was always going to end in tears, but how did it end in murder?
