No matter what the genre, I love getting books from lovereading.co.uk. They always seem to know the most perfect read for any day. Onwards with the review!
A little about "The Secrets Women Keep"...
Rose waits for her family to arrive at their villa in Tuscany when a casual glance at her husband's phone tips her world upside down. The text reads simply: 'Miss you. Love you. Come back soon.'
Daniel has always been popular with women, she knows that. But until this moment she has had no cause for worry. Has something shifted within their marriage without her realising?
As the family gathers for the summer break, Rose's faith in Daniel is shaken. How well does she really know him? She fears that, after decades of marriage and children, the man who lies beside her at night is lying in other ways too. Then events take a tragic turn.
Wise, wry and richly entertaining, The Secrets Women Keep celebrates the passionate, emotional lives women lead as wives, mothers and grandmothers.
The Secrets Women Keep was a breath of fresh air, something lovely to read on a Summer's day or a beach-read. Blake writes with enthralling words that really hold your attention throughout the plot, twisting out of the genres; romance, mystery, sadness and humour.
I felt there was a certain entertaining factor and wise aspect of the novel and was written with something so realistic that it painted a vision for how it would appear, something that helped me sympathise and understand the plot and story more. I felt sympathetic to Rose with all that happened to her during the novel, and how certain people can turn out to be something you didn't think they were, and the struggle with her secrets. It was lovely to see how a family can pull together through everything and remain strong no matter what. The Secrets Women Keep was a five-star read and I absolutely adored it.
