Honey-Glazed Brussel Sprouts Inspired by Little Threats

Thriller just had to have his sprout

This is my absolute favorite side dish for all seasons! I am so excited to share it with you in honor of Little Threats by Emily Schultz.

It’s Summer 1993, and twin teen sisters Kennedy and Carter Wynn are living their best grunge life. One night everything spins out of control, and their best friend Haley is murdered. Kennedy and Haley had been together that evening, but Kennedy can’t remember a thing. Evidence points to Kennedy and she is sentenced to prison. Now it’s 2008, Kennedy is out, and the secrets behind Haley’s murder begin to emerge.

If you are new to the Thriller genre, this is a terrific place to start. I say this because the main events are broken down in clear ways and it’s easy to follow the twists and turns. It is dark, twisty, and a little bit horrifying. The ending caught me off-guard which to me, always sums up a well-written thriller. What I loved most is the doubt I had towards all the characters. It keeps you on your toes!
