TracyColumbia, TNAge: 35-44Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Faith based and action packedFebruary 19, 2020TracyColumbia, TNAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5One Little Lie is about Jane Hardy, a small town police chief in Pelican Harbor, Alabama. Jane was raised in a cult until she and her father escaped when she was 15, leaving behind Janes mother, her newborn baby whom she had been told had died shortly after birth, and her husband Moose whom she hardly knew. Jane carries a great deal of resentment towards God, sadness at the memory of her lost child, and abandonment issues as her mother was unwilling to escape with them. But she has grown into a tough, self reliant, respected police woman. And as she is one of just a few female police chiefs, the towns mayor has arranged for a famous documentary producer, Reid Dixon, to film footage of Jane on the job for a documentary that will hopefully be good publicity for the town. Just as Jane begins in her new position as chief and Reid and his son, Will, begin riding along and filming, a series of events begins to unfold, starting with the discovery of part of a body, then a murder, followed by kidnappings. Jane questions her ability to handle all that has been thrown at her, but Reid becomes a great source of support and encouragement for her. When feelings begin to develop, Reid worries that a secret about his past may push Jane away. But first things first, there is an ever growing mystery to solve and it is beginning to seem like it might be personal.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading One Little Lie. I have read everything Colleen Coble has written, and this was just as exciting and action packed as some of her other titles, such as Strands of Truth, the Lavender Tides series, and the Rock Harbor Series. I liked the complexity that being involved in a cult brought to Janes character. And as with all of Colleen Cobles books, I appreciate the inclusion of characters who are there to help nudge the main character back towards God. I so appreciate having romantic and exciting books to read that are clean and faith based.

KPostrech5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent read!February 19, 2020KPostrechOne Little Lie was exceptional! It had me hooked in the prologue before I even got to chapter 1! I could not put the book down! Cannot wait for Colleen Cobles next book Two Reasons to Run!
Floraljoy5 Stars Out Of 5Truth will set you freeFebruary 7, 2020FloraljoyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In true Colleen Coble style, the mystery and intrigue draws you in from the very start and it was a thrilling and enjoyable read throughout. There were plenty of secrets waiting to be revealed and many unexpected twists which kept me guessing until the very end. Whilst there were a couple of improbable situations (especially with how the 4 year old acted and responded), overall it was very realistic and and the characters were relatable.
I liked how the book dealt with the need and yearning we all have to belong and to know that we are valued and loved. The premise that fear can hold us back was something that most readers would be able to resonate with and I liked the reminder that Truth always prevails.
There is resolution to the case but it is a continuing story and the relationship between Reid, Jane and Will is not finalized. Now I can't wait to read the next book which is due to be released September 2020!

AlaskanAmy5 Stars Out Of 5Great suspenseJanuary 27, 2020AlaskanAmyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Colleen Coble wrote another thriller with One Little Lie. Jane and her father escaped a cult when she was a teen, but left behind her assigned husband and her mom. Story now is present day with her taking over the role of sheriff from her father in Pelican Harbor. A series of murders start right when she gets her new job. She needs to find out who is behind them and if her father is involved. Helping her with this task is Red Bechtol who is in town filming a documentary about her.
I enjoyed One Little Lie more than I have of many of Coble's other suspense stories and am anxiously awaiting for the sequel as this leaves the reader with unanswered questions. Coble did bring in other side stories, such as one with the admin assistant, that didn't seem to pertain to this storyline and I am wanting to see if those correspond with the next book.
This is a great book if you want a new suspense story!

Karen RWAGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5An exciting new suspense series!January 26, 2020Karen RWAGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5An exciting start to a new series! Set on the Gulf Coast in Alabama, this tightly wound murder mystery had plenty of suspense, action and a plot twist or two to keep it interesting. The romance is understated and not the focus, with promise to develop more in the sequel. The main character is strong, going from a stressful childhood in a cult to become a small town police chief. Her struggles with relationships and faith were understandable given her past. Bonds of family, especially between parent-child, were an important aspect of the storyline on many levels, especially when trust is broken. It will be interesting to follow these relationships in the next book. I liked the K-9 partner, Palmer, and hope to see him get an active role in the n1ext book too.
Recommend this to fans of crime suspense with inspiration and a hint of romance.
