Little Secrets

Book: Little Secrets
Author: Jennifer Hillier

Marin had the perfect life. Married to her college sweetheart, she owns a chain of upscale hair salons, and Derek runs his own company. They're admired in their community and are a loving family—until their world falls apart the day their son Sebastian is taken.

A year later, Marin is a shadow of herself. The FBI search has gone cold. The publicity has faded. She and her husband rarely speak. She hires a P.I. to pick up where the police left off, but instead of finding Sebastian, she learns that Derek is having an affair with a younger woman. This discovery sparks Marin back to life. She's lost her son; she's not about to lose her husband, too. Kenzie is an enemy with a face, which means this is a problem Marin can fix.


Review: Sixteen month ago, Marin's son let go of her hand in Pikes Place Market  for a few seconds and he disappeared. Surveillance footage showed him walking out with a man dressed in a Santa suit. The case is a dead end but Marin can't let go so she hired a private detective to look into the case one more time. 

I was really drawn into the book initially. A missing child is every parent's worst nightmare. However, once the private detective uncovers Marin's husbands affair, it turns into a book about Marin essentially stalking her husband's lover. So, not what I was expecting but still a fast paced read.  

Grade: 3.5/5
