It started with one little lie. But Jane Hardy will do everything in her power to uncover the truth in this gripping new romantic suspense.

Jane Hardy is appointed interim sheriff in Pelican Harbor, Alabama, after her father retires, but there's no time for an adjustment period. When her father is arrested for theft and then implicated in a recent murder, Jane quickly realizes she's facing someone out to destroy the only family she has.

After escaping with her father from a cult fifteen years ago, Jane has searched relentlessly for her mother—who refused to leave—ever since. Could someone from that horrible past have found them?

Reid Bechtol is well-known for his documentaries, and his latest project involves covering Jane's career. Jane has little interest in the attention, but the committee who appointed her loves the idea of the publicity.

Jane finds herself depending on Reid's calm manner as he follows her around filming, and they begin working together to clear her father. But Reid has his own secrets from the past, and the gulf between them may be impossible to cross—especially once her father’s lie catches up with him.

This book deserves 5 stars and more!

One Little Lie is so intriguing and has many twists and turns in this wonderful story that I just couldn't put the book down.
I am going to say that this is her best yet! I've been a fan of hers since the Tidewater Inn series.
Colleen Coble sure knows how to grab your attention and keep it there. Her writng style is fantastic!
The story is just wow! Her characters are certainly interesting especially Jane and her dad.
The plot is certainly awesome and will leave on the edge of your seat and won't let go until it's finished. I think that what I most enjoyed was the biblical messages that were in it and one was from Micah.
Jane because of where she came from and what she now is. Who is Jane really?
I think she's just a person that is like the rest of us who wants to bury her past. It's starting to eat her up on the inside out.
Reid and his son are two more that are trying to get past their mistakes and hurts as well.
Can they forgive the people that were in the past and move on to the future? Possibly.
I do know that you can't run or hide from your past because it eventually catches up to you and eventually you'll have to face it.
I know that things do have a way of working out accordingly to God's will.
But Satan also has certain ways to get to people and one way is with jealousy. I don't like that. It tends to ruin everything especially if Jane, Reid and Will lets it.
This story will leave you guessing until the very end and I think that you'll be very surprised! I know I was!
I wasn't at all disappointed with this novel. It had a little bit of everything in it and just right amount too. Nicely done.
I can't wait to see what she comes out with next!
My thanks to Netgalley and Thomas Nelson for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own
