Synopsis

One Secret Summer by Lesley Lokko

In the perfect family, there's a thin line between love and hate, especially when there's so much to hide...

 

The Keelers are one of those families that seem to have everything. Glamorous, wealthy and privileged, life has always been easy for them, on the outside at least. But even the happiest of families have their secrets.

 

Maddie, the scatty American actress, is swept off her fee by Rafe Keeler. A brilliantly talented surgeon, Rafe is handsome, steady and dependable - everything Maddie has sought in a man. So why does she feel so dangerously adrift?

 

Julia loathed Aaron Keeler on sight when they met at Oxford. She was a working-class girl, he was the privileged posh boy handed everything on a plate. But a lethal attraction has set them on a collision course.

 

Niela has been running all her life. Betrayed and abandoned by her own family, her whirlwind marriage to Josh Keeler has given her a place to call 'home'. But Niela knows how easily the past can come back to ruin your life...


Reviews

This book ... is very exciting from start to finish. It's well-written, engaging and fast-paced, with a plot you'll be gripped by. ... I couldn't put it down. DAILY MAIL



About the Author

Lesley Lokko

Lesley Lokko was our Guest Editor in April 2011 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

 

Lesley Lokko’s most recent novel, One Secret Summer, has just been released in paperback and her next, A Private Affair, is due out this summer. After spending seven years training to be an architect, she promptly threw in the towel and began writing fiction instead. Lesley now splits her time between London, Accra and Johannesburg, with the odd winter spent writing in cottage just outside Edinburgh. Her Scottish friends think she’s mad.
