“Hidden Secrets” will pull at your heartstrings until the very last page. Some secrets are not meant to be hidden
A highly original and a thoroughly engaging read, Hidden Secrets 'Secret's and Second Chances' Book 2 retains its momentum throughout as Zadunajsky weaves a tale of intrigue and suspense. Not simply in the makings of her plot, but in the quality and depth of her characters. A rich and eclectic ensemble that is wonderfully observed, whilst the dialogue that gives voice to each creates a genuine air of authenticity which rarely falters. Fans of Zadunajsky will know her prose is always on point. Every word of dialogue is measured, insightful and polarising, taking us to the crux of Carla Michaels’s life and the secrets she has unwittingly unearthed. Bending her offbeat plot into a number of clever and well-conceived twists readers actually have to pay attention and will find themselves with multiple payoffs at the end. Something very few suspense novels seem to demand nowadays and a measure of how well Zadunajsky succeeds in putting us in her protagonist’s shoes.
Another strong release in the 'Secret's and Second Chances' series.
It is highly recommended.
Growing up as a lonely kid in the Frozen North had one thing going for it, libraries! I was a frequent visitor in every library in every place we moved to. I spent a lot of summers at my grandparents. They had an old house, with an attic and I built my own little hiding place under the eves. I found lots of old books and magazines, and spent hours reading them while listening to the rain. Many of the books in the attic were missing covers or pages, didn’t matter, I read them all, and created my own worlds.
