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.
Marin has a happy life, until her son is kidnapped. A year has gone by, and there are no new leads on the case. Marin hires a PI to find her son, but instead, the PI learns Marin’s husband is having an affair. This prompts Marin to learn what her husband has been up, and potentially, find out what happened to her son.
Marin is depressed and lost after her son’s kidnapping. It happened so quickly, and there are no real leads on the case. When she finds out her husband is having an affair, she now has a real enemy to go after. Marin seems a little unstable, but the people in her life are not that trustworthy either. Not knowing who to trust makes for an intriguing read.
A dark and complex story. The main character is living a parent’s worst nightmare. A compelling psychological thriller that kept me turning the pages. Gripping, suspenseful, and twisted.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
