Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly

It explored the idea of what happens when something unthinkable happens, and the blame seems to lay on one particular person in the relationship. I can’t say I’ve read a good thriller in a while, but I liked the premise of this one. He has some skills that help Claire work towards the solution to this horrific event. Having been in the situation where I’ve passed out before, I understand the panic that comes with the feeling right before it happens and could easily see how that leads Claire to this situation.I also enjoyed the interspersed mentions of Jay, a potential witness to the crime, and his own background as a Native American. Played out in multiple narrative voices, the novel explores how the lives of those affected fatefully intersect, and highlights the potential catastrophe of the small decisions we make every day.This book was quite the interesting read. There was also the balance of Claire’s marriage, which was intriguing. Moments later she wakes up on the floor of a gas station bathroom-her car, and her precious girls have vanished.The police have no leads and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each hour passes with no trace of her girls.
