Every Little Secret - Review, Trailer and Video Interview

Idgie Says:
I tore through this book in a weekend!  The only reason it took the entire weekend was apparently I did need to eat, sleep and communicate with family members. 

The novel hops back and forth in time between current day, a week ago, a year ago and to Daphne's youth.  Slowly you start to learn the secrets that are dangled teasingly in front of you throughout the book.

I can't say much about the story without giving away plot, but imagine if you had a great life with a perfect man and in the space of a few days you begin to realize that you may be very, very wrong about things.

This is a fast paced psychological suspense read with plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes and eager for the next page.

Emotionally guarded Daphne Amos always believed she’d found a kindred spirit in her fiancĂ©, Heath. Both very private people, they’ve kept their pasts hidden from the world, and each other, until Heath’s escalating nightmares begin to put an undeniable strain on their relationship. Determined to give their impending marriage the best chance of succeeding, Heath insists that Daphne join him on a seven-day retreat with Dr. Matthew Cerny, a psychologist celebrated for getting to the root of repressed memories. Daphne reluctantly agrees—even though the past is the last place she wants to go.

The retreat’s isolated and forbidding location increases her unease, as do the doctor’s rules: they must relinquish their keys and phones, they’ll be monitored at all hours by hidden cameras, and they’re never to socialize with the other guests.

One sleepless night, Daphne decides to leave her room…and only then does she realize that the institute is not at all what it seems—and that whatever’s crying out from Heath’s past isn’t meant to be heard. It’s meant to be silenced.
