“They say normal people tell a white lie three times a day. Lately, I feel like I’m exceeding my limit.”

Set to be released next month, Carol Mason‘s Little White Secrets follows Emily Rossi, whose life appears perfect on first appearances. She has a great career, a house in the country, a solid marriage to Eric and two wonderful children, tennis superstar Daniel and the quiet Zara. But if you were to look more closely, you’d see a daughter pushing the limits, a marriage ready to crack, and a secret that can break them.

Soon enough, a dark secret from the past emerges, as Emily’s life is turned upside down as she struggles to protect the people she loves.
