Blog tour – Review of The Secret Keeper by Susan Lewis

The great thing about being a book blogger is the amazing books that you get sent to read.  The only bad thing about being a book blogger is that you don’t have enough time to keep up with authors that you’ve read and loved in the past.   So, when I was invited to be on this blog tour, it was a HELL YEAH!

So what did I think? 

I’ve read many of Susan’s books over the years and have loved every one.  This was absolutely no exception.  A stunning read where the intrigue and that fluttery “you know something bad is going to happen but you’re not sure what” feeling gets you right in the stomach.

Susan created a wonderful character in Olivia! I really warmed to her right from the start.  Unlike Richmond who I would quite happily have slapped round the face.  And as I read on, I knew there was something going on with him and I loved unfolding the mystery surrounding his situation and how he had handled it.

This is a hard book to review because so much of the plot revolves around something that happens which I don’t want to share because it really will spoil the read, so you’ll just have to read it for yourself.

It’s a brilliantly written, compelling, unputdownable read which had me gripped while reading it and thinking about it when I wasn’t!

Highly recommended and I enjoyed every moment!

About the book: 

Sunday Times bestselling author Susan Lewis is renowned for her gripping, heartfelt and meticulously researched novels which explore how ordinary people cope in extraordinary situations.

You never forget your first love. Eighteen years ago, Olivia learned to live without Sean Kenyon.

She moved on, building a life with her husband Richmond and their two children in the picturesque town Kesterley-on-Sea.

But when Sean unexpectedly appears on Olivia’s doorstep, her world is turned upside down once more.

As old feelings resurface, and new truths come to light, Olivia finds herself questioning everything.

Is her husband really the person she thought he was?

The past and present collide, and Olivia must uncover the truth before it’s too late.

But if everyone is keeping secrets, how will she know who to trust?
