Will the hidden secrets destroy her? Or will she find the strength to survive once she knows the truth? “Hidden Secrets” will pull at your heartstrings until the very last page. Some secrets are not meant to be hidden…

Hidden Secrets is a poignant, moving, profound read that made me feel a host of different emotions as well as keep me entertained from beginning to end. Hidden Secrets is a profound, intense book as it deals with some upsetting and poignant themes; at the same time, this book could be described as a psychological thriller because it unravels bit by bit and the nature of this unraveling is truly disturbing as well as chilling.

Hidden Secrets follows the protagonist of the novel, Carla Michaels, and her husband, Tim. Carla lives a serene life and she feels that her life is complete, well, almost complete. Carla wants a baby and she longs for this more than anything, however, she is struggling to get pregnant and this is causing a strain between herself and Tim. Tim is being a supportive and the ever-doting husband, but this is not stopping the tension that is between them. However one day Carla finds out that she is pregnant with a little girl and so she believes life is now perfect.

Although life is not perfect, and soon tragedy strikes Carla and it is devastating. What is even more devastating is that things are not as they seem with Tim and soon his troubling past comes to light… secrets that have been hidden for years. The premise of the novel is just this and let me tell you book lovers, it is a brilliant plot with an incredible but poignant story at the heart of it that will keep you readers entertained from beginning to end.

The story of this novel is incredibly moving and will make its readers cry; this is almost certain. I was invested in this story because the characters were believable; I related to Carla in the sense that she desperately wanted a child. I have four now, and I am blessed but some women struggle with this and so I adore how the excellent author of this story, Zadunajsky expressed these feelings through her creation of Clara. Clara and Tim were addictive characters and I read this book like a mad woman because of them and the author’s talent for writing. They feel real and they are incredibly believable and because of this, the reader will be able to invest them easily.

The question that surrounds this novel is a phenomenal one, the question is ‘how well do you know the ones in your life’? , this is a profound question which reminded me of the opening chapter in Gone Girl in which Nick Dunne describes his wife and how he wishes to know what she is thinking. I adore novels which have a core question that surrounds the whole story so in turn, I adore Zadunajsky!

Zadunajsky is a talented author whose incredible plot devices keep the pace of the book moving as fast as a train. Hidden Secrets is incredibly addictive and will have its readers racing through it, frantically turning one page to the next. This is my experience with this sensation novel and I hope it will be yours too!

To conclude my thoughts on Hidden Secrets, I would say if you are looking to read a thrilling, incredible novel that will keep you enthralled and entertained from beginning to end then this excellent book is for you! Hidden Secrets gets Five Stars from me!
