ABOUT THIS BOOK
THIS STORY IS YOUR GUILTY SECRET
You know Lara King.
The top billing of the showbiz pages, you've seen her every morning; over your breakfast, on your commute to work. You know everything about her; you've dissected her life.
Her perfect relationship with film-star Matthew Raine. Her beautiful six-year old daughter Ava.
And so when a terrible incident shatters the family's carefully constructed facade, a media frenzy ensues.
What happens when the perfect woman begins to unravel? When her whole life is really just a lie? One she will do anything she can to stop you from finding out?
This story is . . .
YOUR GUILTY SECRET.
Holy crap, what have I just read?!!! Compelling, disturbing, and utterly addictive, YOUR GUILTY SECRET by Rebecca Thornton is sure to take you on a rollercoaster of emotions and leave you shaken at the end.
Lara King is at the height of her success, with a successful tv show centred around her and her adorable little girl, Ava. She has a new relationship with heartthrob Matthew and an exciting new adventure is about to be set in motion. Everything is perfect. And then Ava disappears. As the world watches and Lara's fans feel as if it is their own daughter that is lost, Lara starts to buckle under the pressure. For her world is just a facade, the lies and the truth all brushed under the carpet to make her marketable and her life insta-glamorous. But as time creeps on and there is still no sign of Ava, the cracks are starting to show and the truth will always come out in the end ...
This story is deeply disturbing as we get to see behind the curtain of celebrity and witness the pressures of needing to be perfect and desperately craving the limelight. I don't want to say too much about the plot as I don't want to give anything away but YOUR GUILTY SECRET by Rebecca Thornton was sooooo much darker than I thought it would be and equally as gripping.
A psychological thriller that is sadly perfect for the world we live in, YOUR GUILTY SECRET is simply superb and I highly recommend it!
