LoveReading Expert Review of Three Little Truths

Such an entertaining and rewarding read, move into Pine Road Dublin, make friends, join in with the gossip, and be ready to hug those in need.

Pure, wonderful, gobble-it-up reading entertainment. Really, what more could you want… friends, gossip, and a mystery that connives and conspires its little socks off! Pine Road, Dublin houses your usual group of very different people, all trying to live together as neighbours. Martha and her family have moved in, everyone wants to know why, and tongues are soon wagging! The first few pages made me laugh and set the group of residents up beautifully as a WhatsApp group overflows with juicy gossip on Pine Road. While I often chuckled, Eithne Shortall also sensitively and thoughtfully handles the more difficult sides to life. The characters, even if on the page for moments, simply burst with vivid intensity. This is one of those books that not only entertains, it also holds the most rewarding and satisfying story. If Pine Road and its fabulous inhabitants actually existed, I would want to pay a visit, and perhaps even stay a while, not for too long though, as parking is a problem! Three Little Truths is an absolute joy of a read, and comes as highly recommended by me.

Three Little Truths Synopsis

Martha used to be a force of nature: calm, collected, and in charge. But since moving her husband and two daughters to Dublin under sudden and mysterious circumstances, she can't seem to find her footing. Robin was the it girl in school, destined for success. Now she's back at her parents' with her four-year-old son, vowing that her ne'er-do-well ex is out of the picture for good. Edie has everything she could want, apart from a baby, and the acceptance of her new neighbours. She longs to be one of the girls, and to figure out why her perfect husband seems to be avoiding their perfect future. Three women looking for a fresh start on idyllic Pine Road. Their friendship will change their lives, and reveal secrets they never imagined. Liane Moriarty meets Lisa Jewell in this story of the love affairs, rivalries and scandals that hide behind every door...

Eithne Shortall Press Reviews

Within a few pages I felt like the newest neighbor on Pine Road, where the women are unique, interesting...and have a lot of secrets. I didn't want to put it down until I knew all of them! By the end, these women felt like friends...or frenemies. - Samantha Downing, USA Today bestselling author of My Lovely Wife

Eithne Shortall writes a community of neighbours so vividly that I feel like I'm one of them, adjusting my telescope and keeping a glass to the wall for fear that I'd miss anything. Funny, endearing, mysterious and outrageous, this book is wildly entertaining and hugely enjoyable. - Liz Nugent, author of Unravelling Oliver

One of the most enjoyable books I've read in ages. It's so clever. I loved it. - Rachael English, author of The American Girl

A darkly comic and expertly plotted novel, proving we never really know what goes on behind closed doors. - L V Hay, author of Do No Harm

Liane Moriarty meets Maeve Binchy meets Marian Keyes. I laughed, I cried, I shuddered, I was agog. - Jo Spain, author of The Confession
