  2. I ve always felt somewhat sorry for people in the public eye They live without the luxury of secrets or much privacy of any kind really The world could know at a moments notice That kind of life takes some tough skin Christina Tiny Hardcastle has the complete opposite of tough skin She is prim, proper, sweet, submissive, and is married to an up and coming politician She has been carefully groomed for her role of perfect wife but she feels anything but perfect under the firm expectations of her h [...]


  3. I am left speechless after finishing what I consider to be one of the most engrossing novels that I have had the privilege of reading in 2015 The characters and their secrets pulled me into this Kennedy style family and left me feeling so incomplete and lost when the story was done This book will proudly sit atop my favorite s shelf and will be read over and over again The story follows Christina Tiny Hardcastle in her life being married to a rising politician and the story is definitely her own [...]


  4. Very disappointing and brings nothing new to the historical fiction genre I liked the 60 s setting, but I could see where this was going about a chapter in hoped to be wrong but wasn t Very chick lit and appropriate beach reading, but instantly forgettable.


  5. Historia de poca Guerra de Vietnam, a os 60 contada en dos voces Caspian y Tiny y en a os distintos 1964 y 1966 Fue una lectura ligera, no se enfoca demasiado en la guerra sino en sus personajes principales M s que nada en la hipocres a de una familia de plata que quiera dar la imagen perfecta en medio de la campa a pol tica del hijo mayor, Frank, y que no va a parar por nada con tal de quedar bien ante los ojos del p blico Lastimando as , en el camino, a casi todos los integrantes, forz ndolos [...]


  6. First, thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Group Putnam for this book I am providing my honest review.This book was just okay to me First of all, I didn t like the name Tiny, so that drove me crazy throughout Second, the story seemed so much like a rehash of the JFK stories we ve all heard that I just felt like I knew everything The story and characters themselves were okay But there was something missing emotion, maybe.I ve read another book by this author, which I loved so I m not giving up But [...]


  7. TINY LITTLE THINGBeatriz WilliamsMs Williams is fast becoming my go to author when I need an escape and she does a good job.This Kennedy story even set in Cape Cod with a man being groomed to be president by his wealthy father is an excellent look at the extremes the powerful will use The woman he married has been groomed to be a presidential wife who discovers she doesn t know herself what she wants, and is slowly being strangled.Of course there is the military decorated cousin who sizzles and [...]


  8. Even though the Hardcastles and their story was borrowed heavily from the Kennedy s own story history, I still enjoyed this Perhaps its because I love anything to do with the Kennedys that I did like this I do think, however, that the author could have made some differences, for instance being from a different part of town other than Brookline, Massachusetts Can t wait to see what Pepper gets up to in the next book, though.


  9. This was a very easy book to read I enjoyed the story and the descriptive settings I felt like I really heard each characters voice in the dialogue It is a chick book that I normally would not read but I m glad the mom advice book club listed it for February.


  10. I recently read Beatriz Williams The Secret Life of Violet Grant published last year, and really enjoyed it Afterward I picked up her other books with mixed results, I liked A Hundred Summers but couldn t get into Overseas The characters are what pulls you into these stories and while I loved Violet, I didn t feel as enad with Lily Hundred or Tiny Tiny Little Thing.I did like much of this most recent story about the Schuyler family and their deep dark secrets Tiny is Christina Schuyler Hardcastl [...]


  11. Secrets We all have them, don t we But some secrets are a bit larger than others.Tiny had a secret from her past that she definitely didn t want to be revealed especially since her husband was running for the Senate But what is she going to be do with the photographs that keep appearing in her mailbox along with the blackmail notes.Then when the person she thinks sent the photographs appears at a family gathering, things start to get sticky.TINY LITTLE THING is a book that has characters that ar [...]


  12. Christina Tiny Schuyler is a New York socialite good girl who always does everything right That includes marrying blue blooded Boston Brahmin, Frank Hardcastle, who is bound for political greatness think Jack Kennedy As Frank is on the campaign trail, Tiny stays at the Hardcastle family compound on Cape Cod While she s there, she receives a package containing incriminating photos from her past, and a demand for money lest the photos be made public While she considers what to do, and who sent the [...]


  13. It is officially summer I read the newest Beatriz Williams book Because, how can it possibly be summer without that I am going to jump out here and say that my review is inflated due to my crazy love of Beatriz Williams and that I am wildly entertained by her novels I don t really know how to describe them Contemporary fiction They take place in the 60 s or before so that doesn t really fit Romance Yes, there is usually a romantic storyline but it is not sappy and overwrought Suspense Definitely [...]


  14. For the longest time I didn t read Women s Fiction, then, I read one of Karen White s book Long Time Gone THEN I read The Secret Life of Violet Grant by Beatriz Williams and I was hooked I always thought it too light for me I wanted to read something with substance but here s the thing I ENJOYED these books They weren t a chore or something I felt like I had to finish I liked the characters and the stories.Yes, sometimes there is too much of a happy ending but I haven t found that in Williams bo [...]


  15. Barf Absolute banality Language so in love with itself it certainly doesn t need ME to admire it And so flowery that I believe it induced early menopause Such tidy endings that it read like a Harlequin Scooby Doo And lest you forget the dainty stature of the titular character, the author reminds you of TIny s miniature physique Every Single Page So although I know how ladylike and delicate she appeared, I have absolutely NO IDEA who she actually is Her character was not defined or consistent Was [...]


  16. I ve loved Beatriz Williams books ever since I first read Overseas Tiny Little Thing is the story of Christina aka Tiny Schuyler She is the sister of Vivian from The Secret Life of Violet Grant She gets a mere mention in that book but trust that there is definitely a story for her This book is set in the 1960 s I don t read many novels set in this era and I m not sure why not This time period is actually pretty interesting It s a time that s kind of stuck in between old school and new school way [...]


  17. I have read and loved all Beatriz Williams books and I adored Tiny Little Thing She has a wonderful style that is quite unique and draws you right into the page I knew you some of the characters from the previous book and now can t wait for the final installment Really well done and a pleasure from beginning to end


  18. This is way like 4.5 stars for me Beatriz Williams is definitely one of my favorite authors I have loved every single book she writes She usually has a new book every summer and they are the best beach reads imaginable Great story, great characters, great ending and I could not put down Definitely recommend


  19. This is the second of three books set mostly in the 1960s with the beautiful, wealthy Schuyler sisters as main characters Tiny, the oldest Schuyler sister marries into a wealthy Massachusetts political family, very reminiscent of the Camelot era.


  20. Beatriz Williams does such a great job writing soapish melodrama that s fun and surprising without being mindless.


  21. Loved this book This is my first book by this author and I plan on reading Real page turner with lots of good twists


  22. Nothing stressful about this read A nice reading pleasure Maybe what one might call a beach read or chick lit


  23. If you like peeking behind the seemingly perfect exterior of the rich and famous, this is that kind of book In a word Interesting This novel proves once that everything is not always as perfect as it seems I really enjoyed reading it This is a very character driven story and the personalities fit the plot perfectly The author was good about making names distinguishable so it was easy to keep the characters separated.Family dynamics play a large role here, but there is also politics, secrets, li [...]


  24. Christina, otherwise known as Tiny, has grown up in a high society family and her mother always pushed her to do , be after all, she is destined for great things Well, it appears that is so as she married into the very prestigious Hardcastle family Her husband, Frank, is running for Congress and the year is 1966 Everything is going as planned, until she receives a note with a photograph that is essentially blackmail This turns Tiny s world upside down Frank isn t even home at the time the photo [...]


  25. I had read two of the author s previous books and really enjoyed them because they are well written and because it ended up that some of the characters in each book are related to each other I love when books have connections because I hate when stories end, and I like knowing about characters and their families.I was excited to learn that Tiny Little Thing was about the sister of Vivian in The Secret Life Of Violet Grant, which I really enjoyed While I liked Tiny Little Thing, it didn t quite g [...]


  26. Originally posted on my blog sarahsbookshelvesIf you read this blog regularly especially around summer time , you know that Williams A Hundred Summers is my favorite quintessential beach read and she s back with another book that s perfect for summer The Hardcastle family that Tiny married into is a bit Kennedy and a bit Cleary from Wedding Crashers Tiny struggles against the family s expectations to portray a pretty picture at all costs And, her struggle with her identity as a woman and her fig [...]


  27. I started this book and was skeptical if I would love it or not I thought, Maybe this will be my first Beatriz Williams book that I don t like But then it grew on me and I was enjoying it and I wasn t sure where it was going to end up though I was hoping that it would all come out okay for Tiny and somehow for the two main male characters because I didn t dislike either one of them In my opinion the book was certainly not predictable and I think the ending was great I will definitely be readin [...]


  28. I loved this book When I started listening to this book yesterday my intention was to stop when I finished a few chores and save it for the car I did not want to put it down It centers around a Kennedy esque family with the perfect young politician and his perfect young wife and a boatload of secrets, deception, blackmail, and forbidden affairs of the heart The setting of the 1960 s is the perfect background and occasional references to the Kennedys is icing on the top Highly recommend this nove [...]


  29. I am a big fan of Beatriz Williams and have loved her other books I would rate Tiny Little Thing a 3.5 It s a light enjoyable read, but there s really not a lot to it It s the story of Tiny, wife of Frank a politician destined someday to be president The family is very Kennedy like , even living on Cape Cod Most of the story was a cliche, but the last 20% of so did get rolling I felt like I waited a very long time for anything to happen.


  30. I am a big Beatriz Williams fan She s a great writer and story teller A Hundred Summers is my favorite of hers Tiny was a good story as well but didn t have the feeling to me as Summers I loved the 30s setting of Summers The 60s setting in Tiny is engaging and true to life A good read and sets up an intriguing detail for Along the Infinite Sea I recommend
