Review: Our Little Secret by Roz Nay

synopsis:

Angela is being held in a police interrogation room. Her ex’s wife has gone missing and Detective Novak is sure Angela knows something, despite her claim that she’s not involved.

At Novak’s prodding, Angela tells a story going back ten years, explaining how she met and fell in love with her high school friend HP. But as her past unfolds, she reveals a disconcerting love triangle and a dark, tangled web of betrayals. Is Angela a scorned ex-lover with criminal intent? Or a pawn in someone else’s revenge scheme? Who is she protecting? And why?

review:

A captivating and addictive mystery with a coming of age story at its heart.

I absolutely loved the structure of the narrative in this one – we have Angela who is being questioned by the police, and the story unfolds as she reveals her history to the detective. I thought this was super creative and really kept the pace moving for me.

There are some characters here who are a hot, hot mess which are sometimes my favorite to read about! – – What makes these people tick? Why are they the way they are? Nay has done a great job in a short amount of pages to develop these characters and to make us feel like we know them. And what a doozy of a conclusion – great up until the last sentence!

Speaking of a short amount of pages, coming in at 228 p., I loved the length of this book, I feel like it really helped move things along and keeps the reader engaged.

Thank you to Roz Nay and Simon & Schuster for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
