Little Bitty Lies is a comic Southern novel about all the important things in life: marriage and divorce, mothers and daughters, friendship and betrayal, small-town secrets, and one woman's lifelong quest for home and the perfect recipe for chicken salad.

Now, I'm not going to give it all away, but I will share the perfect recipe for chicken salad with you right now. The rest, you'll have to read the book for.
