Too good! ... Too good! Sweet Little Lies is a brilliant novel in every sense. I felt so sorry for Mark, and wished that Kelly had of at least tried to exercise some form of self-control, but despite her great worldly successes, she was desperately insecure about both her marriage and her husband's genuine fidelity. So, in that sense, the novel has its tragic, but man, is it ingenuously-written.

Bianca Sloane is a Princess (Soon to be called a Queen) of Suspense. The woman is a brilliant and superb novelist. ( )

In Bianca Sloane's latest novel, Sweet Little Lies, Kelly Ross Monroe seemingly has it all. She's a former super model with her own cosmetic's company, Runway. She's been married to Mark Monroe, the highly successful and incredibly handsome sport's lawyer, for three years. Their life in Chicago is one that most people can only just dream about - until Kelly finds evidence that Mark has been cheating on her... and the act occurred in her own bed. Kelly throws the scumbag's clothes into suitcases and garbage bags, leaving the evidence she found on top of the pile of Mark's things.

Throwing Mark out didn't go exactly as planned. Mark is now dead and Kelly is on the run, trying to figure out what to do next and maybe find out who was the woman Mark was having the affair with. Much to her surprise, Mark had some awfully big secrets he was keeping hidden from her and Kelly feels that she must discover the truth about the man she married. But while Kelly is trying to unravel the truth, there is breaking news on the case that surprises both Kelly and the detectives searching for her.

Once again, Bianca Sloane has written a fast-paced mystery that is the perfect choice for some exciting reading escapism. Kelly is a likeable character (even though she is a super-model, which almost could inspire an opposite emotion - just sayin'). She's practical, thoughtful, and resourceful. Each chapter tells the story or reveals more information through the point of view of several different characters, and some of the information revealed will surprise you.

There were a few flaws. I'm surprised Kelly was driving her car as much as she was, with her original license plates. I kept anticipating that she'd switch plates somewhere along the way. And while her many narrow escapes were surprising, I guess they were also understandable. Who would expect to see a fugitive from justice stopping by a Walgreen's? You'd be very likely to not realize that the customer really was HER until after she left. Or you'd vaguely recognize the name but not put the facts together (says the person who actually paged Brooke Shields while working at a restaurant many, many years ago.)

Currently you can pick up Sweet Little Lies by Bianca Sloane for .99 at Amazon, as well as her first novel Live and Let Die. I highly recommend giving her a try.
Her novel Every Breath You Take should be coming out soon.
