“What If The Perfect Life Wasn’t Yours Anymore?”
I have read almost all of Claudia Carroll’s books and I think she is a great author. I saw ‘Our Little Secret’ on the library shelves during my latest trip to the library, and was pleasantly surprised that this book was a suspense rather than her usual romance novels.
So what is ‘Our Little Secret’ about?
“Sarah Dee has the perfect life. A high-flying job in a law firm, a beautiful daughter and a house to die for. So how does she find herself looking in through the kitchen window while another woman enjoys it all?
When Sarah takes pity on a struggling young graduate who can’t get a job, she thinks she’s doing the right thing. She’s being kind, generous and helpful to others, as she always is. But as Sarah allows the younger woman into her home, her law firm and even her family, is there more to this pretty youngster than meets the eye? And could this be a good deed that goes further than expected?”
I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Our Little Secret’ and felt that it has almost everything you need from a thriller/suspense novel. It is a lesson in not trusting too easily, and if someone seems too perfect then they most probably have something to hide.
I felt many emotions while reading ‘Our Little Secret’, from pity for Sarah as she was taken for a ride, to frustration that she wasn’t listening to her friend’s reservations about the ‘perfect’ Lauren.
I did feel that the ending of the book was a bit of an anti-climax and dragged a little too long, however I would love to read more suspense novels from Claudia Carroll in future.
