"Drilling down into the heart of what it means to be a family, this is a dramatic, twisting, page-turner of a thriller."
One of those genre ghettos where a woman gets put in domestic suspense and a male author would get put in plain ol’ suspense or thriller. This is an “every mother’s nightmare” story that turns into an “every woman’s nightmare,” but what Jennifer is telling here is a universal story about self-doubt, betrayal and ultimately, revenge. I can’t think of another author working today who writes characters quite like Jennifer.
A dramatic and powerful thriller that drills into the heart of what it means to be a family. When her young son Sebastian was taken Marin fell apart, a year later she discovers her husband is having an affair and she vows that she won’t lose him too. The first chapter left my heart in my mouth, feelings blasted from the page and lodged in my mind. The characters are colourfully vibrant, yet also feel so incredibly real. Jennifer Hillier excels in laying out the entirety of a person, she unlocks the facade and lets us in. No judgement takes place within the novel, I was allowed to view, empathise, and examine my own feelings. This was a read-in-one-sitting book for me, I squirmed, I flinched, I couldn’t stop turning the pages. Once you’ve finished this I can also thoroughly recommend her Jar of Hearts as another wonderful page-turner, both have been included as LoveReading Star Books. Full to over-flowing with suspense, heart and emotion, Little Secrets is a provocative and compelling read.
