Ok, I could not put this book down. It was a super quick read and the chapters were short with just enough information that you need to keep on to the next one. I couldn’t really tell where it was going which is great for a suspense read in my opinion. But…

Instead of getting right to it, let me provide a quick synopsis: Angela is being questioned in the disappearance of her best friend and first love, HP’s, wife. She is adamant that she had nothing to do with it and instead of answering detective Novak’s questions directly, she walks him through her version of her and HP’s love story hoping he can figure out what she is trying to tell him.

I found the love story rather odd and it made me super uncomfortable for Angela. Like, what was her deal? Is she the victim or the villain? You can’t be too sure for a while. Her relationships with two other characters were also puzzling to me too and in the end they left me more confused.

Ok, back to the but…

The ending. Huh? I am so confused (did I say that already?). Someone needs to help me out here (but don’t give it away in the comments, we can chat offline!).

It was a twisty story and for it being the author’s first novel, I do think she did a good job of appealing to suspense/thriller fans. We can’t all like every ending: I am just on the side of not, but it still worth a read. Read it so I have someone to discuss it with! 😉


Thank you to the folks at St. Martin’s Press who sent me an advanced reader’s copy of this book! Thank you for thinking of me!

If you also read ‘Our Little Secret’ were you just as confused as me or am I missing the point?!

  1. I have read books where I get to the end and am left wondering if I am missing something or What on Earth did I just read? Very frustrating.

  2. Great review, I am sorry this book really didn’t work out for you and left you to confuse I really dislike when books do that to me too. I hope your next book is a much better read than this one and Bailey is so cute and adorable in this photo Nikki. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.

  3. Loved your review!! I agree with everything you said but I gave the book 5 stars. I was puzzled by the ending at first and had to think about it a bit before I got it. Once I realized what was going on I thought it was brilliant. You can reach out to me offline for clarification if you’d like.
