Big Lies in a Small Town by Diane Chamberlain

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐✰✰

I loved the dream daughter and was really looking forward to reading Big Lies in a Small Town. The first two-thirds had a slower pace for me but I enjoyed the plot lines and it kept me wanting to finish. Towards the end the pace zoomed along and I absolutely adored the last third of the book. Diane Chamberlain is a gifted story-teller.

Told along two timelines we follow the path of Morgan in the present day who has been released from prison to work on an art restoration project and Anna in the 1940s who was the original artist of the mural that Morgan is restoring. The mural has been badly damaged and as Morgan cleans and restores it, she uncovers clues to solve the mystery of what happened to Anna. This novel is a mix of historical fiction and mystery with just a sprinkle of romance. 

Thank you to NetGalley and Saint Martin's Press for allowing me to read an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
