"Little white lies have never been so risky--or so much fun."
--Orlando Sentinel

New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews delivers another treasure of a comic novel. Little Bitty Lies is a tantalizing tale about an abandoned Atlanta housewife and mother who tells one tiny white lie that sets her world spiraling outrageously out of control.

Throw in small town secrets, one woman's lifelong quest for home, and the perfect chicken salad recipe, and you have an ideal escape for fans of Fannie Flagg, Jennifer Crusie, Adriana Trigiani, Emily Giffin, and the Sweet Potato Queens. No lie!

Back cover copy

In a suburban Atlanta neighborhood where divorce is as rampant as kudzu, Mary Bliss McGowan has no idea that her own marriage is in trouble. Then, on one hot summer night, she finds a note from her husband, Parker, telling her he's gone . . . and he's taken the family fortune with him.

Stunned and humiliated, a desperate Mary Bliss has been left behind with her seventeen-year-old daughter, Erin, and a mountain of debt. So she decides to salvage what's left of her life by telling one little bitty lie. But that teeny fib soon starts to snowball, getting bigger and bigger, until Parker turns up dead.

Or does he?
