MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5More Than OneFebruary 24, 2020MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleThe title of this book is appropriate, but one little lie morphed into many more, and then they were no longer little.
As the story begins, Officer Jane Hardy has just made Chief of Police, succeeding her father in the job. We soon see not all are happy about her appointment, and when bodies begin to appear, some think she is not up to the task.
Now the City has given the go ahead for a noted journalist to follow here to make a new documentary, but there sure seems to be something else going on?
This book is full of secrets, and when they fall, yes, I was surprised by some, but others blew my mind, I never saw them coming.
I became so involved in this story, and in the end didn't want it to end, and yes, there is a teaser at the end, another book is coming in the Fall.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
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!
