Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tess has run away from London to Saltburn with her small daughter and she more or less gives bridge builder Joe no option but to employ her as housesitter when she answers his ad. However, she doesn't fully unpack her car nor does she drive it again after she arrives. Joe on the other hand, doesn't tell her everything about the house and his life there, resulting in a shock for Tess when he is away on a work trip.

We follow Tess and Joe as they get to know each other and start to fall in love. The question is, when will they trust each other enough to tell the secrets of their past?

The north east features heavily in the book, which, as a Londoner who adopted Yorkshire as my adult home, I really like. And the theme of bridge building, both real and metaphorical, is strong throughout. The book is unashamedly romantic without being overly cliched and cheesy, very similar in tone to Pillow Talk.

Freya North's early work had a particular style that most either loved or hated. For me, she started to get really good when she introduced the McCabe sisters (Fen, Cat, Pip and their uncle). Her work from Love Rules onwards has got even better. So I was looking forward to reading this and I wasn't disappointed.

Freya North has matured into a writer who writes intelligently and with feeling about both the joy and pain of love. She's not afraid to get her main leads together by the middle (or even beginning) of a book, so we can follow their fledgling relationship as it matures through the stages of crush, lust and love. She often examines what love really means and this book is no exception.

If you liked Pillow Talk, you'll love this. It's not as serious in tone as either Love Rules or Home Truths, but if you liked those, you'll also like this.

As soon as I opened this book, and looked at the first page, I knew it would be good. Tess running away from her past, and her secrets, with her little daughter Em, and Joe living in the big house with Wolf the dog. Tess applies to be the house sitter, as Joe is away a lot building bridges. Love, lust, tears and shared secrets all make this a great read. I had a job to put the book down, and was very sorry when I got to the end. Freya North sure knows how to write a good book.

I read a couple of Freya's early books when they came out but wasn't that keen. To be honest I brought Secrets as the third in a 3 for 2 but was very pleasantly surprised. I agree with previous reviewers that some of the sex scenes feel as if they are there for the sake of it but overall found myself getting drawn more and more into the book and the characters. The secrets weren't a big wow but this didn't matter as by that time in the book it was more about the characters.

another excellent romantic novel from Freya North. I find it amazing that she can tackle serious issues without preaching, in the context of a really enjoyable, well written, story, and come up with a different focus each time. I usually learn something from her writing as well as being thoroughly entertained.

This is the first Freya North book I have read and if this is anything to go by it will not be my last! I loved it so much from the first chapter (something which is very rare for me it usually takes me two or three to get into a book especially if its a new writer) I simply couldn't put it down. I loved the way the relationship developed and how little by little their secrets came out and how each one made them stronger as a couple. I was waiting with an uneasy baited breath for the last few chapters for a twist I felt sure was going to come but I was releaved when it didn't and you left them with a perfect ending for them and for me as a reader.

I am not a big book reader and always have a book on holiday to rest the days away. However I now got into the routine of reading before I go to sleep. After reading a gory serial killer book I decided I wanted something a little easier to read. I brought "Secrets" on Friday evening and I could not put it down, I had finished the book by sunday afternoon. It was fantastic, easy to read and such an enchanting story line. I almost felt jealous of the charaters, such a lovely story line very well written and no there are not any major twists in the story but enough for you to keep the book in your hands to find out what happened next. I will be buying another Freya North book. Thouroughly enjoyed it. Louise x

Joe is in need of a house sitter and Tess has run away and turned up ready to take the job with her baby Em in tow. Both have secrets but will they reveal them...

This is as predictable as most Romantic Comedies and occasionally I would will the characters just to tell us already, not because I was gripped but because I'd guessed and some of the plot felt a bit unnecessary. The romance I found a little lacking (compared to other Rom Coms) considering the way it is advertised but that doesn't mean it wasn't there it surfaced eventually. It was funny not side splittingly so but again it was there. The narrator had a frustrating style but it didn't make me want to stop reading. This is a very average book and definitely not Freya North's best but it was enjoyable.
