Hello, my friends. It’s been such a long time since I posted my last review. My read-to-be-reviewed list is so long (*shame on me*), but don’t worry, I’ll try to manage as soon as possible. Today I have a psychological thriller written by the New York Times bestselling author of The Wrong Man and Eyes on You, Kate White.
Imagine you are a successful self-help author. You suffer from nightmares. In your dreams, you always wake up in a hotel room full of smoke. What is it so hidden in your dreams? You help others. But can you help yourself?
Exactly that is what happened to Bryn. She is suffering from terrible injuries caused by a car accident and since then, she is having those bad dreams. The recent moving to a new house is supposed to make things better. Her husband is the most supportive person in the world. But the dinner changes everything. Bryn’s husband is having a business dinner at their house. A catering service is called. Everything is fine until Bryn finds a matchbox full of burned matches in her bedroom. Someone knows about her nightmares.
A few days later, Bryn is called in the catering service. She arrives there just to find the chef killed in her office. Murdered.
Police investigation points to Bryn. Everything points to Bryn.
And those nightmares with a room full of smoke.
The Secrets You Keep is exactly that, a story full of secrets. It is an interesting mystery that makes you wonder until the last page. The main character is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder caused by a car accident and the way she feels is quite normal. She is trying to cope with it the best she can. I liked the way the author moves the story from one event to another, events that you’ll never guess that are connected. Some things are predictable, but most are not. I enjoyed the story, it has a good mystery in it. It is my first book by this author and I’ll be after her books in the future.
