For readers of Give Me Your Hand and Something in the Water, a gripping thriller set on the Greek Isles.
Liv has never been a woman with a lot of female friends, but when she meets fellow new moms Beth and Binnie in a Mommy and Me play group, she knows she's finally found her best friends for life. Together, the three of them embrace being new parents: pulling together scrappy weekly dinners, sharing their favorite tips and tricks for caring for their kids, and trading in-jokes and references.
But then Binnie introduces Ange. Rich, beautiful, and capable, somehow, of doing it all, Ange changes the dynamics of their little group, and not for the better. While the others follow Ange's decorating tips for their new houses and move their scrappy dinners to expensive restaurants, Liv finds herself on the outside, scrambling to fit in with the people she could always be herself around. When Ange suggests a trip to Greece to celebrate their girl gang, Liv knows she has to go-even though her family really can't afford it-or be left out of the group for good. Once on the islands though, Ange makes it clear that trip or no trip, Liv will always be second string. As long as Ange is around, there's no returning to the way things were. But Liv wants her friendships back-and she'll do whatever it takes to make that happen.
Set over the course of a single, life changing trip to the Greek isles, Little Nothings is a gripping thriller about the dark side of female friendship, the competitive nature of modern motherhood, and the desperate ends one lonely woman will go to keep her friends close.

I was lucky to receive an advance copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. I absolutely loved it! This book has all the makings of a great book - island get away, growing tension, strong characters, and an ending that you won't guess!
