I received a complimentary egalley of LITTLE SECRETS by Jennifer Hillier for an honest review. Thank you to Netgalley and Minotaur Books!
LITTLE SECRETS begins with Marin, hair dresser to the rich and famous with her own chain of high end hair salons. She’s married to a husband she loves and together they have a son Sebastian Marin couldn’t love more. All seems to be perfect until Sebastian goes missing while doing some Christmas shopping at a very crowded Pike’s Place Market in Seattle.
Sixteen months later, Marin’s son is still missing and her life is very different. Marin is as determined as ever to find her son and bring him home, but the police are out of leads and even her private detective is hinting at giving up. In the course of her investigation, the P.I. finds something unexpected. Marin’s husband is involved in a long term relationship with a much younger woman, Kenzie. In a very fragile place, Marin takes some extreme steps to make sure she doesn’t lose anything more.
This story was wild and it didn’t entirely follow the path I expected and I was more than okay with that. This was the book apart form audio that was really able to grab my attention and hold on. I wound up blasting through this one in a little over a day after getting very little reading time in earlier in the week.
Told from Marin’s perspective and that of her husband’s other woman, we get two very different voices in this novel, though both are very dark. There are trigger warnings for suicide and violence.
Jennifer Hillier is an author that has been on my radar for a long time and I can see why she gets all the praise. She definitely threw some twists at me that I did not see coming and I loved the wildly dark ride she took me on with this novel! Reading this one makes me even more eager to get to JAR OF HEARTS which has been sitting on my shelf too long!
I absolutely recommend LITTLE SECRETS for those who love a good and dark twisty tale! This one will be out on 4/21/2020!
