It’s a pleasure today to be sharing my review of The Secret Keeper by Susan Lewis as part of the blog tour.
You never forget your first love. 18 years ago, Olivia learned to live without Sean Kenyon.
She moved on, building a life with her husband Richmond and their two children in the picturesque town Kesterley-on-Sea.
But when Sean unexpectedly appears on Olivia’s doorstep, her world is turned upside down once more.
As old feelings resurface, and new truths come to light, Olivia finds herself questioning everything.
Is her husband really the person she thought he was?
The past and present collide, and Olivia must uncover the truth before it’s too late.
But if everyone is keeping secrets, how will she know who to trust?
Olivia and her husband Richmond live a comfortable life. Recovering from cancer, Olivia is trying to put the past behind her and move forward but when her first love Sean appears after 18 years it seems Olivia’s life is about to turn upside down.
Susan Lewis has created a story that will completely draw you in and have you feeling every emotion Olivia goes through as you read. Olivia is a great character, she’s been through the mill but is determined to try to get things back on track. Olivia’s two children are her world but are growing up and starting to lead their own lives and Richmond is under incredible pressure due to work and it’s clear from the start that there’s something amiss between the couple.
Not only does Olivia’s first love Sean appear out of the blue but another ghost from the past makes an appearance which leaves Olivia a bit on edge. I’ll not go into details, you’ll just have to read the book to find out but I will say it’s so worth it.
I wouldn’t say this was a particularly fast paced story but it really gets you hooked, it’s definitely a page turner. The story flows so well, before you know it you’ve read half the book. The characters are well-developed and some you just can’t help really having sympathy for, others just made me quite mad.
This is the second book I’ve read by Susan Lewis and I really can’t wait to see what she has in store next. I’ll definitely be recommending The Secret Keeper. Completely absorbing and full of suspense.
