Review for One Little Secret by Cate Holahan

Kindle Edition, 320 pages
Expected publication: July 9th 2019 by Crooked Lane Books

Everyone has a secret. For some, it's worth dying to protect. For others, it's worth killing.

The glass beach house was supposed to be the getaway that Susan needed. Eager to help her transplanted family set down roots in their new town - and desperate for some kid-free conversation - she invites her new neighbors to join in on a week-long sublet with her and her workaholic husband.

Over the course of the first evening, liquor loosens inhibitions and lips. The three couples begin picking up on the others' marital tensions and work frustrations, as well as revealing their own. But someone says too much. And the next morning one of the women is discovered dead on the private beach.

Town detective Gabby Watkins must figure out who permanently silenced the deceased. As she investigates, she learns that everyone in the glass house was hiding something that could tie them to the murder, and that the biggest secrets of all are often in plain sight for anyone willing to look.

A taut, locked room mystery with an unforgettable cast of characters, One Little Secret promises to keep readers eyes glued to the pages and debating the blinders that we all put on in the service of politeness. 

My Thoughts…
Oh My What a Thriller!   I started this, kept reading, and could not stop until I read the very last word.   This is a thriller that I couldn’t quite figure out.   I had guesses, I tried to follow the clues, and I was so very wrong.   

One Little Secret was a quick and easy read.   I devoured it and then kept thinking about it after.   The characters were interesting and realistic, the storyline was intriguing, and the ending, OH MY!  I love how it was written in The Day Of, The Day Before, and The Day After so there was no doubt where in the timeline you were.
