One of our Great Reads You May Have Missed in 2012.

Louise's books (this is her third) go from strength to strength. The Secrets Between Us is an exciting modern day gothic story full of drama, suspense, romance and quite a few heart-stopping moments. A chance encounter on holiday, for Sarah, seem to hold a chance of escape from an unfaithful husband and a recent stillborn baby but all is not so perfect in the rural paradise she moves to.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


The Secrets Between Us by Louise Douglas

A chance encounter: When Sarah meets dark, brooding Alex, she grasps his offer of a new life miles away from her own. They've both recently escaped broken relationships, and need to start again. Why not do it together? A perfect life: But when Sarah gets to the tiny village of Burrington Stoke, something doesn't add up. Alex's beautiful wife Genevieve was charming, talented, and adored by all who knew her. And apparently, she and Alex had a successful marriage complete with a gorgeous son, Jamie. Why would Genevieve walk out on her perfect life? And why has no one heard from her since she did so? A web of lies: Genevieve's family and all her friends think that Alex knows more about her disappearance than he's letting on. But Sarah's fallen in love with him and just knows he couldn't have anything to hide. Or could he?
