This review is written with thanks to Pigeonhole for the opportunity to read and review Every Little Secret.
From the outside, it seems Grace has it all. Only she knows about the cracks in her picture-perfect life… and the huge secret behind them. After all, who can she trust?
Her brother Josh is thousands of miles away, and he and Grace have never been close – he was always their parents’ favourite.
Her best friend Coco walked away from her years ago, their friendship irreparably fractured by the choices they’ve made.
And her husband Marcus seems like a different man lately. Grace can’t shake the feeling that he’s hiding something.
But when her seven-year-old daughter makes a troubling accusation, Grace must choose between protecting her child and protecting her secret… before she loses everything.
A totally addictive suspense novel from the bestselling author of A Mother Never Lies, perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell and Shalini Boland.
I’ve never read anything by Sarah Clarke before but I admired her plotting skills from the very beginning of Every Little Secret. I never knew who to trust and who was telling the truth and my feelings changed with every page. I really wanted to get to the bottom of what happened and it was really annoying when I had to stop reading at the end of every stave.
There are a few different timelines in Every Little Secret and the chapters are written from the perspective of different characters. I found this really helped to get under the skin of the characters, especially Grace, Marcus and Coco, and understand why they behaved in the way they did even if I did not agree with them.
As the different aspects of the plot come together, the tension rises really quickly. I was on tenterhooks as we gradually received answers to the questions that are posed throughout the novel.
The novel finishes in an open ended way so I will keep the characters in my mind for some time to come.
Every Little Secret is available from Amazon.
