Little Lovely Things
I love a strong female lead in a character-driven novel. Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly is just that!
Claire is facing a mother’s nightmare when her children are kidnapped. She then starts on this journey of finding her children. This is thrilling & pulls at your heartstrings – big time!
As Claire does everything she can to find to it what happened to her girls, she seeks out people with different backgrounds & different methods. She is determined and steadfast. There’s a connection to a shaman & this is so very special. I love the spiritual elements in this novel. Anything, where there’s feelings, premonitions, etc, is something that always speaks to me.
Easily 4 stars for me! Little Lovely Things is so enjoyable. The suspense quickly builds. Read this is you’re a fan of family dramas.
