Our Little Secret by Roz Nay ~ 📚Publication Day 4-17-18 ~ 📚 @roznay1 @kab0207 @StMartinsPress

“Put a crowd of a hundred people in a room and wait. Eventually the psychopaths will emerge, and I’m telling you now, they won’t be who you first suspected and there’ll always be more than one.”

Roz Nay’s Our Little Secret is a twisted tale of love, pain, and revenge that will stay with the reader long after they turn the last page.

They say you never forget your first love. What they don’t say though, is that sometimes your first love won’t forget you…

Angela Petitjean sits in a cold, dull room. The police have been interrogating her for hours, asking about Saskia Parker. She’s the wife of Angela’s high school sweetheart, HP, and the mother of his child. She has vanished. Homicide Detective J. Novak believes Angela knows what happened to Saskia. He wants the truth, and he wants it now.

But Angela has a different story to tell. It began more than a decade ago when she and HP met in high school in Cove, Vermont. She was an awkward, shy teenager. He was a popular athlete. They became friends, fell in love, and dated senior year. Everything changed when Angela went to college. When time and distance separated them. When Saskia entered the picture.

That was eight years ago. HP foolishly married a drama queen and Angela moved on with her life. Whatever marital rift caused Saskia to leave her husband has nothing to do with Angela. Nothing at all. Detective Novak needs to stop asking questions and listen to what Angela is telling him. And once he understands everything, he’ll have the truth he so desperately wants…

Our Little Secret’s opening scene started out with an introduction to Angela. Angela was being questioned by the police about the disappearance of someone named Saskia. But you won’t know who Saskia is until later on in the story. At first, not knowing who she was got us turning pages fast in order to put the pieces of the puzzle together! Then, when her identity is revealed, we turned pages more furiously to find out what happened to her!

The story jumps back and forth between the present (Angela at the police station) and the past. She insists on telling her story to detective Novak from the beginning… a decade ago when she and HP were soulmates. Can’t everyone see? Isn’t it obvious? Angela and HP are soul mates! Her story can’t be told unless detective Novak understands that fact!

What we liked about this story was the shocking ending!!! We would definitely recommend this story to a YA and adults alike who love a suspenseful love story dripping with deceit, revenge, and mysterious plot twists!

We look forward to reading more from Roz!
