A Little Bird Told Me: a twisty yet tender debut about family, secrets, and the lies we tell ourselves by [Holmes, Marianne]

Released on 13th September 2018

Besides, if you were one half evil, wouldn’t you want to know about the other half?

In the scorching summer of 1976, Robyn spends her days swimming at the Lido and tagging after her brother. It’s the perfect holiday – except for the crying women her mum keeps bringing home.

As the heatwave boils on, tensions in the town begin to simmer. Everyone is gossiping about her mum, a strange man is following her around, and worst of all, no one will tell Robyn the truth. But this town isn’t good at keeping secrets…

Twelve years later Robyn returns home, to a house that has stood empty for years and a town that hasn’t moved on, forced to confront the mystery that haunted her that summer.

And atone for the part she played in it.

Marianne Holmes

Marianne Holmes was born in Cyprus to RAF parents but is now firmly based in London. After a sensible career in marketing, Marianne is now focusing on her love of language and writing. 

A Little Bird Told Me is her first novel.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
#FirstLine ~ Prologue: They say I'll never find her.

A book steeped in mystery, a coming of age story that will leave the reader satisfied. A story that has some twists and turns, with a sweet and tender side. It has a great plot, great characters and a setting that cannot be missed. A story you will long to talk about!
