Set in small town Edenton, North Carolina, and transitioning between the 1940s and 2018, we meet two strong female characters: Anna Dale who has just been awarded the job of creating a post office mural depicting the town of Edenton and then Morgan Christopher who has been granted her early freedom from prison in exchange for her work restoring that same mural in 2018. The story unfolds for both women and I could not have been more drawn into their journeys and wondering when or how their storylines would cross. The town of Edenton and the mural itself are almost their own characters in the story. The writing is so descriptive that not only do the characters spring from the pages, but I could also envision the mural and the town.
Big Lies in a Small Town is most definitely a page turner with numerous surprises in store. I loved every minute and would rate this a 5 star read for me.
I received this book courtesy of St. Martin's Press through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
