I Know Your Secret by Ruth Heald

4 Stars from me

The best way I can describe this book is to liken it to a game of parcel the parcel at a kids party… It has multiple layers and as you unravel each one a new shiny nugget of information is revealed!

Beth and Danielle are great central characters, it is easy to get sucked into their world(s) and I felt hugely sorry for Beth for all that she goes through in this book.

Danielle is quite the piece of work and I found it hard to imagine that Peter would actually have been able to sustain a relationship with her. Her mum’s storyline is great, I love all the little reveals.

It’s been a long time since I read such a good ‘unreliable narrator’ story and I really enjoyed I Know Your Secret.

Also, I know it’s only a book but I really wanted to track down Richard and give him a kick in the shins!

Blurb: ‘You’re not who you say you are. Neither is she.’

She thinks she knows me.

She believes my marriage is falling apart at the seams, that my husband can barely look me in the eyes. She thinks I’m desperate for a baby, that my longing for a family keeps me up at night. As much as I hate to admit it, all of this is true.

She thinks I listen to her advice, that I care about her opinion. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Because she has no idea who I am. She has no clue that I know everything.

I know her secret. I know that she did the unforgivable. I know how many lives she ruined.

I know exactly what she did. And I’m here for her.
