About the Author

Linda Huber grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, but went to work in Switzerland for a year aged twenty-two, and has lived there ever since. Her day jobs have included working as a physiotherapist in hospitals and schools for handicapped children, and teaching English in a medieval castle. Not to mention several years being a full-time mum to two boys and a rescue dog. Linda’s writing career began in the nineties, and since then she’s had over fifty short stories and articles published, as well as five psychological suspense novels. Her sixth book, The Saturday Secret, is a collection of feel-good short stories – profits from ebook and paperback sales will be donated to charity; details on the author’s website www.lindahuber.net After spending large chunks of the current decade moving house, she has now settled in a beautiful flat on the banks of Lake Constance in north-east Switzerland, where she’s working on another suspense novel.

This world sometimes feels like a very harsh place to be, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed by how much anger and general nastiness there seems to be out there. It's good, therefore, to escape to a place where happy endings are guaranteed. Sometimes, you just need to pick up a book and lose yourself in a story that makes you feel warm, happy, and optimistic again.

The Saturday Secret is such a book - packed with short stories that are pure feel-good entertainment. It's extremely easy to read, and although I planned to just read one or two stories at a time I actually read it in two halves. The first half was read some weeks ago and then, thanks to real life intruding, I had to sacrifice reading time for a while. I picked up the book again today - call it my Mother's Day treat! It was lovely to slip back into that cosy world, and find that the second half was just as good as the first.

The stories are delightful, featuring children, babies, elderly people, kittens, dogs, loving couples, affectionate families and lots more besides.

My personal favourites were We're Having a Baby! The Cat's Whiskers, After Rebecca, and the short - but incredibly poignant - Corrina's Big Day. The short story that gives the book its title also made me smile. I won't give away what The Saturday Secret actually is, but let's just say it gave me hope. :)

A really gorgeous collection of short stories by a writer who clearly has a gift for capturing those precious moments in a person's life and weaving a wonderful tale around them. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it to those looking for an escape route into a happy place!

I just love this collection of short stories. Life seems to be so busy and there are times when I just don't have the concentration or hours spare to get into reading a novel, so this collection was perfect to dip into and out of without losing the thread of a longer story. Really well written, with great characterisation and feel good plots, this collection is guaranteed to lift your mood.

Love all Linda Hubers books, although so different from all the others, it is so uplifting. A latte, your favourite chair, a rainy day and this book are a perfect combination.

The Saturday Secret contains 15 stories that can each be read in under 15 minutes.

What a delightful selection of stories this is. There’s no violence or cynicism, just pure entertainment. Reading The Saturday Secret was rather like slipping into comfortable slippers after a day in heels, or sinking into a blissful bubble bath to ease away the strains of the day and I really enjoyed the read.

I particularly enjoyed the uplifting nature of the stories. Even though each takes only 10 minutes or so to read, Linda Huber manages to introduce realistic and human characters facing tough choices, difficult problems or challenging situations. Given that The Saturday Secret stories were originally written for women’s magazines, it comes as no surprise that each is resolved with a happy ending, but this added to the appeal for me. I had just read a very intense book followed by a very graphic one and these stories were the perfect antidote, being light, entertaining and positive.

I also really appreciated the variety of story. Writing with an effortless grace, Linda Huber conveys both male and female perspectives equally well and covers a huge range of themes from the need for a child in an infertile couple to the impact an animal can make in a life. The reader encounters love in many forms.

With the profits from The Saturday Secret going to charity, the lovely quality of the writing and the entertaining nature of the stories, I heartily recommend The Saturday Secret.
