ABOUT THIS BOOK
When one door closes, another opens, or so the saying goes.
After being in a long-term relationship for eight years, Audrey Fox never thought she'd tie the knot. But at the age of forty-two, fate throws her a lifeline and she finally has it all - a loving husband, successful career, beautiful family and loyal friends. Life couldn't be better for Audrey ... until a family member entrusts her with a secret that threatens trouble in paradise.
Lying to her new husband definitely wasn't on the cards when Audrey took her vows, but now she feels there's no other choice. She either keeps the secret or risks hurting the people that she loves. And then just when the dust seems to settle, an old flame turns up and creates a storm that could bring her world crashing down ...
Unable to discuss her dilemma with her significant friends Louise and Tina, or sister-in-law Vicky, the cracks begin to show. Torn between her husband and the people she's known and loved for years, Audrey's perfect life begins to spiral out of control. Where do her loyalties lie and whom can she trust? Because there's no smoke without fire and everyone has secrets ... don't they?
HER SECRET by Kelly Florentia is absolutely crazy in the best possible way. There are secrets that you come to expect in fiction and then there are the secrets in this story which will lead you on a journey brimming with lies, danger, and so much more.
After being dumped again by her long-time love Nick, Audrey Fox is finally married and happy with the always considerate and loving Daniel, even though they had some issues at the beginning. Audrey is happy and as she gets close to Daniel's grown-up daughter Connie, she really feels like one of the family. But when Connie confides a secret with her, it sets Audrey on a path of lies and confusion, because beneath the surface there is so much more to be revealed. Add in the fact that her ex is back on the scene, someone seems to be following her, and she doesn't know if she can even trust her mates, and Audrey will soon learn that while secrets can be hurtful they can also be dangerous in the wrong hands ...
While this novel is a sequel to No Way Back, it can easily be read as a standalone story but I would highly recommend that you read both books to really get a feel for the characters and everything that is happening. Audrey and the gang are hilarious, frustrating, and naive at times, and I wouldn't want it any other way. HER SECRET is perfectly paced and I raced through this story in one evening as I just had to know what the heck was going on - and the ending certainly did not disappoint!
I really enjoyed this story (even more so than the first book) and I highly recommend HER SECRET by Kelly Florentia for those who love a lot of drama with their entertainment.
Kelly Florentia was born and bred in north London, where she continues to live with her husband Joe. HER SECRET (2018) is her third novel and the sequel to NO WAY BACK (2017).
Kelly has always enjoyed writing and was a bit of a poet when she was younger. Before penning her debut The Magic Touch (2016), she wrote short stories for women’s magazines. To Tell a Tale or Two… is a collection of her short tales. In January 2017, her keen interest in health and fitness led to the release of Smooth Operator – a collection of twenty of her favourite smoothie recipes.
As well as writing, Kelly enjoys reading, running, drinking coffee, scoffing cakes, watching TV dramas, and spending way too much time on social media.
