KEEP MY SECRETS – Elena Wilkes (Released April 28th, 2021)
A life built on lies – now the truth could destroy her
Frankie Turner knows what it’s like to be unwanted; she was brought up in care. Now as a social worker to kids in the same system, she’s someone who understands … But Frankie is hiding an unthinkable secret: one that may have its roots in the murder of a young, beautiful woman fifteen years ago.
Yet the past is out there. Someone knows what Frankie is hiding – and now they’re back to shatter her perfectly constructed life, terrorising her with menacing letters and silent calls to the house she shares with husband Alex.
She may have reinvented herself, but Frankie’s past is back to haunt her – and now, there’s nowhere to run.
A gripping psychological thriller that will have you hooked. Fans of Lisa Jewell and Erin Kelly won’t be able to put this one down.
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars
Another solid thriller for 2021! In a sea of thrillers and suspense reads that feel so similar and predictable this was a breath of fresh air. KEEP MY SECRETS was captivating and held my attention once the action picked up. So many questions about Frankie’s past and I just loved how the author would slowly give up little bits of information to keep you on edge. I want to keep this short and sweet so I don’t risk spoiling anything – just know you’ll have to clear out some time once you pick this up because it’ll hook you.
This was my second book by Wilkes and she did not disappoint! Memorable characters, and not all of them the most likeable (gotta have someone to hate in every story, right?) I highly recommend both KEEP MY SECRETS and THE MAN I MARRIED if you’re looking for something quick and exciting.
About the Author:
Elena Wilkes grew up in Walsall in the West Midlands and then worked for eighteen years in H.M Prison Service. The people she met there provided the basis for all her novels.
Many of the prisoners there came across as very ordinary people who had committed the most appalling crimes but would, one day, walk straight back on the streets.
This begged the question: how much do we know about anyone, really? The people who live amongst us may seem no different from us at all, but when you scratch a little deeper, you realise they hold some very dark secrets.
