November 2017 Book of the Month
An intense, suspense filled thrilling tale set in Australia. Mia wants to be a reporter and she desperately wants to leave her small town, when she begins to investigate the appearance of small dolls left on doorsteps, danger grimaces and then beckons. Anna Snoekstra sets the scene from a small town perspective, she invites you to view the intimate and personal, this feels alive, vibrant and very real. I stepped into the book, got to know the characters, watched as secrets bubbled away, the tension builds, yet the tale remains grounded, allowing your mind to investigate and question. I galloped through ‘Little Secrets’, devouring the story, yet thoroughly enjoying the ride, what a surprising, gripping and very readable tale this is. Liz Robinson
To keep little secrets, they tell big lies... `I am not sick. I just like the little dolls... I think I'll break one soon.'
It's every parent's worst nightmare. A tiny porcelain doll appearing on your doorstep. Bright blonde hair, rosy cheeks, even a little blue dress. A perfect replica of your six-year-old daughter. But then anonymous letters from `The Doll Collector' begin to arrive. And in the small town where everyone has their own little secrets, no one is safe from suspicion. Because you can never really trust the people who live just along the street...
