One Little Lie

About One Little Lie

Series: The Pelican Harbor Series (Book 1)
Paperback: 352 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (March 3, 2020)
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.
“Colleen Coble always raises the notch on romantic suspense, and One Little Lie is my favorite yet! The story took me on a wild and wonderful ride.” —Diann Mills, bestselling author

My Review

The beginning of this story started out intense. It showed Jane's childhood in a cult. While it was a short moment, it did explain why Jane wanted to protect her father. Reid was introduced in the story maybe as a love interest? I say this as a question because the romance was minimal if lacking. Not that I am complaining as I don't feel like this book needed a romance. 

Jane has big shoes to fill as a female sheriff. Not to point the obvious that she has a killer on her hands. The killings seem personal as if the killer has something against Jane. With Reid's help; Jane is determined to stop the killer before more lives are lost. 

I did figure out early on who the killer was. Yet, this did not keep me from stopping reading this book. However, I must admit that there were clues there but to be fair Jane would not have figured out who it was until the reveal. This book is a good start to this series.
