But Beatriz WilliamsTiny Little Thing (GP Putnam’s Sons, June 23, 2015) turns this notion on its head and brings us a story about what happens when a picture-perfect woman, who has a lot to hide, threatens the political stability of her husband.

Christina Hardcastle, also known as “Tiny,” comes from a wealthy and influential family. But while her husband, Frank, aims for a seat on the Senate, the past resurfaces to haunt “Tiny” and secrets she thought were long-buried threaten to come out. Reputations and futures are on the line in this political and suspenseful romance.
