Here is what it is about...
They say you never forget your first love. What they don't say though, is that sometimes your first love won't forget you...
A police interview room is the last place Angela expected to find herself today. It's been hours, and they keep asking her the same inane questions over and over. "How do you know the victim?" "What's your relationship with Mr. Parker?" Her ex's wife has gone missing, and anyone who was close to the couple is a suspect. Angela is tired of the bottomless questions and tired of the cold room that stays the same while a rotating litany of interrogators changes shifts around her. But when criminologist Novak takes over, she can tell he's not like the others. He's ready to listen, and she knows he'll understand. When she tells him that her story begins a decade before, long before Saskia was in the picture, he gives her the floor.
A twenty-something young professional, Angela claims to have no involvement. How could she? It's been years since she and H.P., Mr. Parker that is, were together. As her story unfolds, it deepens and darkens. There's a lot to unpack... betrayal, jealousy, and a group of people who all have motives for retribution. If Angela is telling the truth, then who's lying?
Here is what I thought...
Holy unreliable narrator, Batman!!! I am a big fan of the mystery/thriller genre and have read A LOT of them but lately they have all felt a little stale and repetitive to me. I have been slightly bored with the genre only because nothing I have read lately felt new or different then I received this book....whoa!
Angela is a great narrator and even though she is obviously a little messed up you still can't help but like her just a little. I also felt a little sorry for her in that she seemed very alone and basically was raised by two very selfish parents. All of the characters are believable and great...even though you kind of hate most of them.
Our Little Secret is a great thriller that I could not put down and devoured it a just a few short sittings. This may not exactly be a new plot line but Ms. Nay writes it so well that you will enjoy every single crazy minute of it! 4/5 stars
