THE FUNNIEST NOVEL YOU'LL EVER READ ABOUT GRIEF
Milly Dayton became a widow at 26. Two years later, she's got the whole thing down:
· Go on the occasional date but bring your engagement ring so you can whip it out for a quick getaway
· Steal brunch photos for social media posts so your friends know you're fine
· Keep messaging your late husband on Facebook - you're not crazy if you don't believe he'll message you back
Milly isn't okay but she looks it online. But everyone lies about their lives on Instagram, don't they?
One day, sick of all the pretence, Milly creates Mizzennial, a new channel inspired by the straight-talking magazines of her childhood. But even here, she still can't quite admit how lonely she really is. Can she take her own advice, finally open up and start to move on?
Funny, tender and heart-wrenching, Love, Loss and Little White Lies is a story for anyone who's felt like everyone else has their life together. Perfect for fans of Holly Bourne, Lucy Vine and Lucy Diamond.
'A beautiful, funny, modern story that breathes life back into the nostalgia of growing up and what to do when the vision you had for yourself falls apart. It isn't easy to tackle authenticity and grief alongside one another, but in today's age of social media and 'the right kind of sad,' Rigg's novel has some pretty profound things to say about lifting your chin in the face of adversity. What a triumph!' Abigail Mann, author of The Wedding Crasher
'In Love, Loss and Little White Lies, India Rigg has given us a novel that is heart-breaking and poignant, but also fresh and funny and just all kinds of wonderful. Milly is a heroine you cannot help but root for as you watch the tantalising glimpses of her great love story juxtapositioned against her grief and guilt at the idea of moving on. This book is guaranteed to make you cry, but it will also make you laugh out loud as you cheer Milly on. Utterly fabulous and highly recommended' Sarah Bonner, author of Her Perfect Twin
'Love, Loss and Little White Lies is one of those special books that both moves you to tears and makes you laugh. Milly's story of grief is told with such heart you'll feel like her and Adam are part of your life. And if you're a Millennial who loved Mizz magazine as a teenager you'll relate to Milly's funny observations on love, life and pop culture' Chloe Timms, author of The Seawomen
'Painfully relatable, this book had me snorting with laughter' Amy Lavelle, author of Definitely Fine

Oh this book was just so good.
Filled with a lot of sadness but also funny moments and positive ways to help yourself and deal with certain things in life such as social media, therapy and death.
I absolutely loved Milly!
This book was such a treat and I recommend it if you like reading contemporary.
Just be aware, there are quite a few topics in this book that can be upsetting for many.
Milly’s story of coming to terms with being a 26 year old widow is heart-breaking and poignant, but also fresh and funny and just all kinds of wonderful. I absolutely adored this book!
