No-one confesses to a murder they didn’t commit, do they?
I haven’t seen my brother for twenty years. Not since he killed the man I loved.
Now he’s back.
I have imagined this scene a million times. What would he say to me?
But nothing could prepare me for this. What he’s saying is impossible:
“I didn’t do it.”
He must be lying. Who confesses to a murder they didn’t commit?
Everyone in our town wants him gone. Everyone’s scared of him. Even me.
But maybe one of them is more scared of being found out…
And when I see something in his eyes that reminds me of everything we used to be, I realise I need to know the truth.
No matter what it costs me. No matter who wants to keep it hidden…
A dark, emotional story of a family left shattered by the legacy of a terrible crime and the question of how well we truly know the ones we love. Fans of Catherine McKenzie and Tracy Buchanan will be totally gripped by this haunting and compelling read.
No More Secrets is a gripping story that had me very intrigued upon reading the blurb. It is one that immediately appealed to me and once I started reading it, it didn’t take me long to be caught up in the drama of it. It is dark, intense, emotional and very captivating.
Jennifer Harvey has crafted a tale that pulled me into the story and on a journey in search of the truth. A murder, a false confession, a town with secrets to hide and at its core, fractured family relationships, make up the narrative in this compelling tale.
I enjoyed how the book is structured with a past and present format and the tension and suspense that builds up along the way keeps you invested. Guilt and grief play a big part and emotions are at an all time high, as secrets long buried begin to rise to the surface.
Jennifer Harvey is a new author to me and I look forward to reading more of her work in the future. She has an easy style, which makes for a very smooth read. I did find at times that the story moved at a slightly slower pace, but it had me wanting to keep flicking the pages to know how it was all going to unfold.
No More Secrets has been very well written and plotted. As the story progresses, you get a sense of where is it heading, so when all is revealed, it didn’t come as a complete surprise to me, but in saying that, this did not ruin my enjoyment of it at all. Jennifer Harvey has done a great job with this story and it is one that I recommend.
