New this month, Little Pretty Things is the highly anticipated new novel from Lori Rader-Day, author of last year's acclaimed, award-winning debut novel, The Black Hour.

In Little Pretty Things, old rivalries never die...but some rivals do. 


Twenty-eight-year-old Juliet Townsend works a dead-end job cleaning rooms at a one-star motel. Then one night, her former best friend and high school track rival Madeleine Bell checks in, glamorous and flashing a huge diamond ring. The next day, Maddy is found murdered, and Juliet is the chief suspect. To clear her name, Juliet must revisit the past, uncovering long-buried secrets in the process.
