From USA Today bestselling author Pamela Crane comes an addictively readable domestic suspense novel…

Three best friends. Two unforgiveable sins. One dead body.

Mackenzie, Robin, and Lily have been inseparable forever, sharing life’s ups and downs and growing even closer as the years have gone by. They know everything about each other. Or so they believe.

Nothing could come between these three best friends . . .
Except for a betrayal.

Nothing could turn them against each other . . .
Except for a terrible past mistake.

Nothing could tear them apart . . .
Except for murder.


Little Deadly Secrets by Pamela Crane is an engrossing domestic mystery.

Mackenzie Fischer, Robin Thompson and Lily Santoro have been friends since college. Their close friendships have survived marriages, children and more serious life experiences. Amid infidelity, shocking allegations about two of their teenagers and murder, this bond is about to face its toughest challenge. Which, if any, friendships will survive in the aftermath of nine difficult days?

Mackenzie Fischer and husband Owen are college sweethearts who married not long after graduation. They are parents to fifteen year old Aria who is pretty close to perfect. Mackenzie and Aria are close which is why she is so shocked to find her daughter in an unexpected situation.  Instead of keeping this information from her volatile and abusive husband, Mackenzie struggles to contain his darkest impulses in the aftermath of her revelations.

Robin Thompson and her pediatrician husband Grant are the busy parents of four children ranging from eight months to eighteen years of age. Robin is a stay at home mom who is sleep deprived but still alert enough to become suspicious when Grant takes great care to hide texts and calls from her.  Her own secret pales in comparison to what she suspects her husband is up to.

Lily Santoro is a successful businesswoman who is outspoken. She is separated from her husband and although she misses him, she quickly puts herself back out there. Lily is not looking for another relationship but  she is currently obsessed with a man who should be off limits. However regretful she might be, Lily is not one to deny herself the man she wants.

Little Deadly Secrets is an intriguing domestic mystery with an imaginative plot and interesting characters. Although the pacing is a little uneven, the tension builds with each chapter. With stunning plot twists, Pamela Crane brings this clever mystery to an unpredictable conclusion. I enjoyed and recommend this domestic mystery to fans of the genre.
