Today I’m reviewing Your Secret’s Safe With Me for the blog tour with Rachel’s Random Resources!
Career girl Becca Gates’ organised life is thrown into chaos when her mother, romantic novelist Pearl, announces her surprise engagement to Jack, a man she has only just met.
Worse news follows when Pearl tells Becca she intends to leave London, quit writing, and retire to her new fiancé’s idyllic waterside home on the south coast. Becca is determined to prevent Pearl from making a disastrous mistake, but when she at arrives at Rivermede, more shocks await when she stumbles upon a familiar yet unwelcome face from her past.
As Pearl embraces her new life amongst the local sailing fraternity, Becca receives a grim warning that all is not as calm as it seems at picturesque Rivermede, and if she wants to keep her family safe, she should keep them away.
But why should Becca trust the man who has betrayed her before, the man who broke her heart, the man who thinks he knows all her secrets?
Your Secret’s Safe With Me is witty, funny, and mysterious, which makes is such a great read for anyone.
Becca hasn’t had the best luck with relationships, which makes her that much more unlikely to support a crazy fast marriage between her mother Pearl and Jack, who she has just met. I love the contrast between Becca and Pearl. Becca is very cynical when it comes to love and Pearl is very open minded. When the two are together it brings the witty content.
The pace of the book is fantastic. There’s a lot of intrigue and suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. Mixed in with that is family drama, secrets and thrills that makes this book such an intriguing read. Highly recommended!
