Overwhelmed by tragedy, a woman desperately tries to save her marriage in award-winning author Jennifer Hillier’s Little Secrets, a riveting novel of psychological suspense.
All it takes to unravel a life is one little secret…
Marin had the perfect life. Married to her college sweetheart, she owns a chain of upscale hair salons, and Derek runs his own company. They’re admired in their community and are a loving family—until their world falls apart the day their son Sebastian is taken.
A year later, Marin is a shadow of herself. The FBI search has gone cold. The publicity has faded. She and her husband rarely speak. She hires a P.I. to pick up where the police left off, but instead of finding Sebastian, she learns that Derek is having an affair with a younger woman. This discovery sparks Marin back to life. She’s lost her son; she’s not about to lose her husband, too. Kenzie is an enemy with a face, which means this is a problem Marin can fix.
I’m going to start backwards with my review. That ending!! I love that I didn’t see it coming or had it figured out. Bravo Miss Hillier!! As a reader, you want to be surprised at the way a story ends. At least I do. Predictability can get old pretty fast.
The story is both suspenseful and enthralling. It captured my attention right from the beginning. I found myself going through a series of emotions while I was reading. I felt sorrow, anger, and then satisfaction. This book is very well written. I love the author’s style of writing. The characters also helped shape the story. I found myself going back and forth with my feelings for some of them. I liked them one moment and the next, not so much. All in all, I highly enjoyed this book! It’s suspenseful, emotional, and thrilling!
This is the first book I’ve read from Miss Hillier and I am already looking at other books by her. I give this 5 stars.
