I will summarize this psychological thriller only briefly because to do more than that would ruin the reading experience. Crazy Little Lies is about a woman named Jane who strives to please those around her. She is a Christian, dedicated to her Sunday school students and her choir. She is a doting daughter and sister who cooks, cleans and cares for her family although she receives very little in return. She is a giving girlfriend and employee, a loving friend and, in every way a very good person. She is desperately in need of someone to love her, however, and as the story progresses, the reader finds out that Jane will go to great lengths to receive that love.
The premise behind this story is a good one, although there are characters in this book that could have been better fleshed out. Jane's parents are two of those that really stand out for me, especially her mother who suffers from bad health. Throughout the book her mother, Alvira, suffers from a host of different maladies but it is never clear exactly what it is that specifically plagues her. I have my guesses, but after reading the book, I am still unsure. Jane's father is rather spineless and his character is formed almost by having no character at all. These people interested me. They largely shaped Jane into the person she would become and I would have liked to have gotten to know them better.
The end of this book had me tapping my Kindle to get to the next page...but I was somewhat disappointed in its conclusion. It felt abrupt after the huge build up and I wished the author had drawn it out a bit. Perhaps that is a tribute to the story that Sandra Rector tells in Crazy Little Lies. I wanted more at the end because she had built it so well.
I rated Crazy Little Lies four stars because this was a very compelling and interesting read and I would recommend it to those readers who enjoy an unexpected, but very worthwhile psychological adventure.
Before Jane has even graduated High School you get the feeling that she's either incredible naive or not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed.
The book has a pretty good twist, revolving around the lengths to which Jane is willing to go to find love which is understandable given her mother's cold and sickly demeanor and the environment in which she was raised.
All in all, I found it to be a good read and definitely worthy of recommendation. Enjoy!
