Secrets is a clever story with a little mystery, a little romance and a satisfying ending. It is part of the Quick Reads series.
The story focuses on two sisters who supposedly know each other well but it turns out that a secret romance has breed layers of secrets. It’s quite amazing how many events have to be re-examined once this relationship comes to light. I enjoyed the way Barrett-Lee slowly leaked information as the secrets started to be disclosed plus the way she left hints along the way.
One of the interesting themes in this book is the idea that once you have genuinely grieved and mourned the end of a relationship it is very difficult to resume that relationship. (A similar idea is found in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.)
Overall an enjoyable story.
