Descripción

From best-selling author Diane Chamberlain comes an irresistible novel in Big Lies in a Small Town.

North Carolina, 2018: Morgan Christopher's life has been derailed. Taking the fall for a crime she did not commit, she finds herself serving a three-year stint in the North Carolina Women's Correctional Center. Her dream of a career in art is put on hold - until a mysterious visitor makes her an offer that will see her released immediately. Her assignment: restore an old post office mural in a sleepy southern town. Morgan knows nothing about art restoration, but desperate to leave prison, she accepts. What she finds under the layers of grime is a painting that tells the story of madness, violence, and a conspiracy of small town secrets.

North Carolina, 1940: Anna Dale, an artist from New Jersey, wins a national contest to paint a mural for the post office in Edenton, North Carolina. Alone in the world and desperate for work, she accepts. But what she doesn't expect is to find herself immersed in a town where prejudices run deep, where people are hiding secrets behind closed doors, and where the price of being different might just end in murder.

What happened to Anna Dale? Are the clues hidden in the decrepit mural? Can Morgan overcome her own demons to discover what exists beneath the layers of lies?

    A touching and imaginative story - I really enjoyed it....
  • (5/5)
    One of the best books I’ve read in a very long time!
  • (5/5)
    Absolutely loved this book. Character and plot development were wonderful; I really wanted to know what happened to the characters and looked forward to listening to it as I gardened. I was sorry to reach the end of this book as it was so vivid.

    Really had a hard time putting it down. I became a fan of the artist Jesse who found a way to help so many young artists. And the one he chose depicted in this novel was so young with so much “history” already yet a basic goodness.

    Diane chamberlain knows how to write a riveting story. I listened to it twice. Lived it both times!

    Loved this story. I was actually painting a mural while listening, and whenever I think of the painting, I will think of this book. Loved all the little offshoots/details of the characters’ lives. Thank you for this charming book.

    I was really emotional with this book. It was making me sad and mad and I even tried to quit listening to it... but I went back and finished it and it didn’t disappoint... but I haven’t read or listened to a Diane chamberlain book that I hated. All the love between two characters that were just friends was so refreshing. I didn’t care for the language. But. I might have said a bad word too in some of those circumstances... anyway. Glad I went back and finished ... and the ending couldn’t have been better...

    I haven't read many books by Diane Chamberlain, but very much liked the ones I have read. This one was no exception. These are the stories of two young women living in very different times, yet with a mysterious bond that's revealed as we learn their stories. Chamberlain takes us back and forth in time in Edenton, NC, a small coastal town that does, indeed, have its share of secrets and lies. She gives us a feel for what small town life might've been like in 1940, the good and the bad. And there's a nice mystery involving the young woman who disappeared after moving from New Jersey to North Carolina in late 1939 to paint a historical mural for the post office in Edenton, and disappears before she can complete it. I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to many more reads from Diane Chamberlain. I did listen to much of it, and the narration was excellent.
    Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for providing a copy for an unbiased review.

    Great characters, intriguing story. I got hooked and couldn't wait to hear more.
  • (5/5)
    The book itself is very engaging, well thought out and pleasantly written. The narration is spot on.
  • (5/5)
    This story started slowly, I assume to develop the characters, but was woven masterfully keeping me in suspense once I grasped who the characters were in relationship to the story. The story itself was heartfelt and powerful. I felt attached to all of the characters at the end of the story and the ending was perfect, giving the reader/listener the option of wondering how things would turn out, but also giving enough of the story to feel satisfying.
