"A cracking read...Our Little Secret builds to a deliciously dark conclusion." --Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10
Roz Nay's Our Little Secret is a twisted tale of love, pain, and revenge that will stay with the reader long after they turn the last page.
They say you never forget your first love. What they don't say though, is that sometimes your first love won't forget you...
A police interview room is the last place Angela expected to find herself today. It's been hours, and they keep asking her the same inane questions over and over. "How do you know the victim?" "What's your relationship with Mr. Parker?" Her ex's wife has gone missing, and anyone who was close to the couple is a suspect. Angela is tired of the bottomless questions and tired of the cold room that stays the same while a rotating litany of interrogators changes shifts around her. But when criminologist Novak takes over, she can tell he's not like the others. He's ready to listen, and she knows he'll understand. When she tells him that her story begins a decade before, long before Saskia was in the picture, he gives her the floor.
A twenty-something young professional, Angela claims to have no involvement. How could she? It's been years since she and H.P., Mr. Parker that is, were together. As her story unfolds, it deepens and darkens. There's a lot to unpack... betrayal, jealousy, and a group of people who all have motives for retribution. If Angela is telling the truth, then who's lying?

*** 2.5 Star Review ***
I was really excited to read this book. Between all of the buzz about it and the blurb, I was itching to get it read. Unfortunately, I was a little too excited.
The whole premise of this story is solid. It has the potential to be that next great book that everyone is talking about... except it just isn't. The way it's written and told, it is lacking.
I went back and forth while reading this book. I liked it, then I didn't, then I did again. I felt like I was on a seesaw going up and down. Every time the book started to get good, it would drop me.
I just couldn't connect with the story or the characters. Even though Nay seemed to try to develop both of them, it all just fell flat.
All in all, there really isn't anything spectacular about this book. By the time I reached the end, I felt disappointed and a little duped.
