Overwhelmed by tragedy, a woman desperately tries to save her marriage in award-winning author Jennifer Hillier’s Little Secrets, a riveting novel of psychological suspense.

All it takes to unravel a life is one little secret…

Marin had the perfect life. Married to her college sweetheart, she owns a chain of upscale hair salons, and Derek runs his own company. They’re admired in their community and are a loving familyβ€”until their world falls apart the day their son Sebastian is taken.

A year later, Marin is a shadow of herself. The FBI search has gone cold. The publicity has faded. She and her husband rarely speak. She hires a P.I. to pick up where the police left off, but instead of finding Sebastian, she learns that Derek is having an affair with a younger woman. This discovery sparks Marin back to life. She’s lost her son; she’s not about to lose her husband, too. Kenzie is an enemy with a face, which means this is a problem Marin can fix.



They say that it is best to dive into books blindly, but not this book.

I found an audiobook of it and started listening while I am journaling. But as the story progress, I am getting confused as to what I am getting myself into.

The story begins with the main character losing her son. I was expecting the story to continue as they look for the missing son and the mystery of who took it. However, it took a completely different turn. The story went in a different direction that I am not expecting, so I have to check the synopsis on Goodreads.πŸ˜…

After that though, the story flows nicely. I did not expect much diving into the book because I thought I’ve read a lot of mystery/suspense like this one, but how wrong I was. The storyline changes and the missing son became a subplot for the most part of the book.

I would usually try to guess who the antagonist is with every mystery/suspense story that I am reading. But like I said, it took a different turn. So I was caught off guard by how good the author weaves the story. Suddenly, we are back to the missing son. And revelation after revelation happens. I did not see that coming, probably because I am so into the other storyline.

On the other hand, I am glad the plot is good. The main character and the other characters, however, are not likable and relatable. If not for the plot, I would not care about the missing child. The characters I’ve cared about most in the story are the parents in therapy with the main character. Other than that, I don’t care much about the other characters and their relationship.

All-in-all, it was a good book to read if you are looking for something unique or something unusual. Although I could not say much, since this is the first time I am read something like this. What I can say though is I would surely pick up another book by this author. Highly recommend!

That is all for this review!

Until next time!



A reader who becomes a villain, a queen, a princess, a heroine, and a warrior depends on the story that she reads. A dreamer who wishes to dwell in the world that she visited through the pages of her book. A frustrated blogger who wishes to put into words the frustration, boredom, and excitement that she felt throughout her many journeys outside the real world.
