Tiny Little Thing - Review & Giveaway

Review by KT Sullivan
In the summer of 1966, Christina “Tiny” Hardcastle is part of an up and coming power couple with her husband, Frank. He’s planning to run for Congress then on to the Presidency. On the outside everything is perfect, inside not so much. An envelope arrives, addressed to her, with incriminating pictures taken by her true love. Frank’s cousin, Caspian, met Tiny right before her wedding and they had a passionate affair. They didn’t reveal too much about themselves and had no idea about the connection to Frank. After, Cap left for Vietnam and she married Frank. Now, Cap is back, a wounded decorated veteran, campaigning for Frank. Tiny’s sister, Pepper, has decided to stay with Tiny for an indefinite time. She’s pregnant and unemployed. Pepper notices the coolness between Tiny and Frank. He’s not home very much and the whisper of an affair with a staffer upsets Tiny. “I was the good daughter.” Tiny did her part for her family; she followed the rules and married well. Now, she questions all her life choices. Cap is still in love with her and her with him. After finding out the truth about Frank’s lover and who’s blackmailing her, Tiny decides to live for herself and not others. Happiness can’t be bought or manufactured.

This is a timely topic. I thought of the show House of Cards while I read this book. The main character there is named Frank too. Lots of secrets and payoffs are in this story. What will people sacrifice for power and infamy? Everything regardless of the cost. Excellent read.
