Book Review - Little Secrets by Jennifer Hillier

Little SecretsLittle Secrets by Jennifer Hillier

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Synopsis: Four hundred and eighty seconds. That’s how long it took for someone to steal Marin Machado's four-year-old son.

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 family. Up until the day 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. The only thing keeping her going is the unlikely chance that one day Sebastian reappears. She hires a P.I. to pick up where the police left off, but instead of finding him, she discovers that Derek is having an affair with a younger woman.

Kenzie Li is an artist and grad student—Instagram famous—and up to her eyeballs in debt. She knows Derek is married. She also knows he's rich, and dating him comes with perks: help with bills, trips away, expensive gifts. He isn't her first rich boyfriend, but she finds herself hoping he'll be the last. She's falling for him—and that was never part of the plan.

Discovery of the affair 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. But as she sets a plan in motion, another revelation surfaces. Derek's lover might know what happened to their son. And so might Derek.

From the author of Jar of Hearts, a mother driven to the edge by the disappearance of her son learns her husband is having an affair with the woman who might have kidnapped him.

My Thoughts: This was one thriller that I totally enjoyed from beginning to end. It starts out with a child abduction and takes the reader on a wild ride to find out who and why but also toss in Marin's extra marriage issues and how she goes about handling them and the dark twisted plot thickens. I would be as upset as she is but I don't think I could take it as far?...

What happened next threw me for a loop and I had to hurry and finish so yeah Little Secrets was another one of those stories that kept me awake well into the morning. Another author I can add to my auto buy/read list!
