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!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers, but all opinions are my own.

I love her books and this one did not disappoint. In fact, as soon as I finished it, I wanted to read the next book in this series! This intense book focuses on Jane Hardy who has just been appointed interim sheriff. Jane's past is unique and she is faced with the task of trying to prove her father (the previous sheriff) is innocent of suspected crimes. At times, it seems as if the past is catching up with her, but she also wants closure for her past as well. As the reader reads, you will be caught up in what is occurring, what is going to occur, and wondering what really happened in the past. I can not wait for the next addition to the series to release! Be prepared to read straight through this one once you start! I highly recommend this book and believe that you will not be disappointed!

Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Complex mystery and relationshipsJanuary 20, 2020Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"One Little Lie" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. This is the first in a trilogy about Jane Hardy. The mystery was wrapped up by the end, but the relationship tensions still need to be resolved. Jane was raised in a cult, and that still affects her present.
Despite making little progress on the case, Jane did come across as competent as a police chief. Perhaps because she made sure to do the investigative parts right. So many murderers and clues were thrown at her that it became a mess that was difficult figure out. I found the mystery a bit confusing, though it wasn't too difficult to figure out who to suspect. In the end, it's really her father that solves the mystery, but at least she's critical to saving the day and arresting the bad guys.
The suspense stayed high since people kept turning up murdered and her father was accused of crimes he swore he didn't do. Jane believed him, but doubts were planted when others close to him keep saying that he's hiding things from her. Reid and his son initially showed up to tape her at work to use in a documentary, but soon they are helping her. Though initially at odds, Reid tried to be understanding and supportive and so gained her friendship. The characters reacted realistically to events and were likable. However, Jane felt distant and I never really engaged with her.
Jane had trouble trusting God because she still viewed Him as she was taught in the cult. There was no bad language or sex. Overall, I'd recommend this complex suspense novel.
I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.

SusanClover, SCAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Start to Series!January 12, 2020SusanClover, SCAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5'Faith wasn't something Jane could wrap her head around. How did you trust something you couldn't see?'
Jane Hardy fled a cult 15 years ago with her father. Now, living in Pelican Harbor, Alabama, her father has retired as police chief and she has been appointed as his replacement when she is called on to solve a series of vicious murders. But more is going on than these murders.
Reid Dixon films documentaries and is good at what he does. He has come to Pelican Harbor to film the chief of police for a few weeks as she does her job. Jane does not want him to do so, but the mayor does. Reid, however, has some secrets of his own from his past. It all started with one little lie. That lie has the potential to wreak havoc in Jane's life.
After her father is arrested for theft, Jane is on a mission to prove his innocence while dealing with her own issues.
Colleen Coble has long been a favorite for me, but not since her wonderful Rock Harbor (which I have read several times) series has she done such fine writing! Some of her very best in my opinion. And this is going to be a series! So we have more to look forward to. Coble is at her very best here. I look forward to the next book in Pelican Harbor.
