Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes 
Release Date: November 6, 2018 

"I'm not saying this is Sawyer's fault," the prim and proper one said delicately. "But."

Eighteen-year-old auto mechanic Sawyer Taft did not expect her estranged grandmother to show up at her apartment door and offer her a six-figure contract to participate in debutante season. And she definitely never imagined she would accept. But when she realizes that immersing herself in her grandmother's "society" might mean discovering the answer to the biggest mystery of her life-her father's identity-she signs on the dotted line and braces herself for a year of makeovers, big dresses, bigger egos, and a whole lot of bless your heart. The one thing she doesn't expect to find is friendship, but as she's drawn into a group of debutantes with scandalous, dangerous secrets of their own, Sawyer quickly discovers that her family isn't the only mainstay of high society with skeletons in their closet. There are people in her grandmother's glittering world who are not what they appear, and no one wants Sawyer poking her nose into the past. As she navigates the twisted relationships between her new friends and their powerful parents, Sawyer's search for the truth about her own origins is just the beginning.

Set in the world of debutante balls, grand estates and rolling green hills, Little White Lies combines a charming setting, a classic fish-out-of-water story, and the sort of layered mystery only author Jennifer Lynn Barnes can pull off.
"Never Trust a Debutante"?! I'm already sold! It's been so long since I've read a book by Jennifer, but I've always loved her past works. Her werewolf series, in particular, was fabulous! I'm excited to see her explore the world of debutantes, and Sawyer sounds like she's going to be a great MC. 


  1. This kind of sounds like The Princess Diaries, but for an older audience! I like it!

  2. I have this one on my TBR too. It sounds awesome and I need to read something by Barnes, because everyone raves about The Naturals series (which I hope to start this year).

  3. I haven't read anything from her, but I obviously need to try it out. It sounds amazing!! Love the whole debutante angle too.

  4. We're pretty excited about this one too. Looks pretty exciting. And I loved her Naturals series.

  5. Sawyer does sound like a fantastic main character. I haven't read anything by this author but you have me curious about this one. Great pick!


I love comments so never be afraid to leave one!
