Samantha has a secret, and it's not very pleasant. In this novel, Darcia Helle explores the psychology behind secrets and keeping secrets, and the effects it can have on the mind and on relationships.
Samantha is a rich, successful model, and is married to a rich, successful businessman. But her past has come back to haunt her in a relentless fashion. Will she be forced to reveal the dark secret she has kept since her childhood? Somehow it seems that the weight of the memories she has tried so hard to suppress has become unbearable.
Helle has a talent for suspenseful writing, and this novel contains scenes that will have you biting your nails, frowning, worrying, and praying for a happy ending. As with all of her novels, this is an entertaining read containing vivid description, realistic characters and a wonderfully intricate and well spun storyline. If you like to really live a book through the eyes of the characters, you need to read Darcia Helle's novels. 'Secrets' is the latest in a long line of exceptional suspense thrillers from this gifted author. A must read.

For any of you that haven't read any Darcia Helle's books you really don't know what you have been missing.
To be honest this book was a lot more violent than others I have read but Darcia has a great way of writing that keeps you completely hooked from start to finish.
The main character Samantha has ran away with a huge horrible family secret and as it all comes to light and you think it can't get any worse, it does!!!
Highly recommended this book.

By Julie Elizabeth Powell TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 25 Sept. 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
I won a copy of this book and I was immensely glad I did - it was fantastic. It's extremely well-written and so fast-paced that it was almost mind-blowing, to coin a phrase. The characters are wonderful - both good and bad - and I couldn't wait to see what happened.

Secrets is a true testament to the saying that an easy to read book is difficult to write - a truly amazing talent.

There are many things I'd like to say about it, but I never give spoilers, however, I will say the storyline will have you on the edge of your seat, and that it certainly deals with how secrets can both save lives in the beginning but will destroy them in the end, if we don't take them by the scruff of the neck and shake them loose.

Highly recommended.

I admire Darcia Helle for writing Secrets. The novel drained me emotionally, so it's hard to imagine how anyone could write it. Some reviewers might write how it's not technically perfect, or that some events are contrived, but I don't care, the relentless power of the writing and the brave treatment of the macabre theme obliterates nitpicking. Samantha Reardon has endured a family life no human being should have to endure. Her father, mother and brother are beyond dysfunctional; they are demonic, primeval. Who wouldn't carry terrible secrets, embedded in one's brain? Then Samantha has a mother-in-law who is no better. Brace yourself, readers, for what lies in these pages: a story that needs telling told by a courageous writer.
