From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wrong Man and Eyes on You comes a harrowing new psychological thriller about a successful self-help author who suddenly finds her life spiraling dangerously out of control.
What would you do if you realized that your new husband, a man you adore, is keeping secrets from you—secrets with terrifying consequences?
Bryn Harper, an accomplished self-help author, already has plenty to deal with. She’s still recovering from a devastating car accident that has left her haunted by recurring, smoke-filled nightmares. Worse still, she can’t shake the ominous feeling her dreams contain a warning.
At the beginning of their relationship, Bryn’s husband Guy couldn’t have been more supportive. But after they move into a new house together, disturbing incidents occur and Guy grows evasive. Bryn is increasingly unsettled, and then a woman hired to cater their dinner party is brutally murdered.
As Bryn’s world unravels—and yet another woman in town is slain —she must summon her old strength to find answers and protect her own life. Her nightmares may in fact hold the key to unlocking the truth and unmasking the murderer.
With unexpected, riveting twists, The Secrets You Keep is an utterly compelling psychological thriller that once again showcases Kate White’s extraordinary storytelling talent.
In this solid psychological thriller from bestseller White (The Wrong Man), Bryn Harper, a successful New York City based self-help author, has barely been able to function since a fiery car accident killed a colleague and left her badly injured. Haunted by nightmares filled with fire, Bryn struggles to remember what caused the accident. Bryn and her husband, Guy Carrington, the head of development for the Saratoga, N.Y., opera, had a commuter marriage before the accident. Now they're together in Saratoga, where Bryn hopes a dinner party that Guy has arranged will help her snap out of her lethargy. But Bryn soon runs into trouble with Eve Blazer, a flirtatious caterer, over missing money and a box of burnt matches a nasty reminder of the car crash. When Eve is murdered, Bryn becomes a suspect. As Bryn struggles to clear her name, she realizes that Guy is not the man she thought he was. White keeps the suspense high to the end, though some readers may find the murder motive a stretch.
The secrets you keep
Was a good read
I’ve never written a review before, but this book warrants it. It could have been half the length, but the author dictates every single move she makes and every thought she has, few of which are pertinent to the story. It reads about like reading the detailed minutes to someone’s daily life, with very little actually happening. I’m so irritated for spending time and money on this.
Didn’t see it coming!
Wonderful read, enjoyed that it took the time for it to really set the story and catch up up for the current events. Every chapter leaving a cliff hanger moment for you to engage to the next one. And of course, had me suspecting someone else, leading me to a very shocking twist!
