Hey friends! Thank you for dropping by today. Here you will find my reaction to One Little Secret by Cate Holahan. Listed below is the description provided by NetGalley followed by my review and star rating.
From the description on NetGalley :
Everyone has a secret. For some, it’s worth dying to protect. For others, it’s worth killing.
The glass beach house was supposed to be the getaway that Susan needed. Eager to help her transplanted family set down roots in their new town—and desperate for some kid-free conversation—she invites her new neighbors to join in on a week-long sublet with her and her workaholic husband.
Over the course of the first evening, liquor loosens inhibitions and lips. The three couples begin picking up on the others’ marital tensions and work frustrations, as well as revealing their own. But someone says too much. And the next morning one of the women is discovered dead on the private beach.
Town detective Gabby Watkins must figure out who permanently silenced the deceased. As she investigates, she learns that everyone in the glass house was hiding something that could tie them to the murder, and that the biggest secrets of all are often in plain sight for anyone willing to look.
A taut, locked room mystery with an unforgettable cast of characters,One Little Secret promises to keep readers’ eyes glued to the pages and debating the blinders that we all put on in the service of politeness.
My Review :
Okay, so first of all, I read this book in just a few short hours because I could not wait to see what happened.
Our cast of characters are all neighbors who have rented a house for the week since their kids are attending summer camp.
Throw in lots of drinking and marital issues, and well – you’re going to likely end up with more drama than you can handle.
Since I like to keep my reviews spoiler free – I’m just going to say that if you enjoy who-dun-it mysteries, you’ll probably want to pick up a copy of this book.
