Publisher's Summary

When Cordelia Thorn ventures to Summer Green, Wisconsin, for a reunion with some old college friends, she finds trouble in paradise. Twenty-plus years have definitely changed things. Soap opera star Diana has become an alcoholic. Curt and Annie's marriage is falling apart. Orson is hostile and surly. And Theo, the most passionate of them all, suddenly dies - of an apparent heart attack.

Alarmed, Cordelia sends for her old friend Jane Lawless to do some quiet snooping. Together they follow their hunches - into the not-so-carefree past and back to the troubled present, where they find a single match could blow up all their lives....

unexpected ending

Where does A Small Sacrifice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

So far this has been the most surprising book i have listened to.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how they friends stuck by each other all throughout the years and how Theo put himself in harms way to support Diana.

Have you listened to any of Aimee Jolson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

this is the first series i am listening to for this narrator and i love her.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when they were reminiscing about the good days, how Diana was before she started drinking so excessively and they need to bring her back.

Any additional comments?

I am really enjoying the Lawless series, really love them. Cordelia is the best, i swear.
