Publisher's Summary

Dangerously addictive, The Secrets of Us is a pulse-pounding exploration of a disturbed psyche and the bond between two sisters desperate to escape a troubled past.

Foster sisters Krystal and Nichole have always been there for each other, so when Nichole is committed to a psychiatric hospital after trying to kill her husband, Krystal drops everything to defend her.

Scarred by a hard upbringing, Nichole and Krystal managed to construct comfortable lives for themselves. Krystal became a respected lawyer, and Nichole was happily married to an architect - until Nichole starts raving that her husband isn’t her husband, believing that he’s an imposter.

Driven by fierce loyalty, Krystal starts asking questions, but she’s not sure she can bear the answers. Her investigation leads to the sisters’ dark shared past...to a horrible tragedy and a well-guarded lie that cemented their sisterly bond.

But that lie can’t kill the truth - the battered, gasping, clawing truth that’s coming for them both. Now Krystal and Nichole must both fight for the lives they’ve built before they’re consumed by the one they left behind.

wait... what?!?

I adore Lucinda Berry and couldn't wait for this book... but I feel like I must have missed something. it was like being on the first hill of a roller coaster for ever and ever, and instead of flying down the other side it just sort of went down a slight incline and stopped. What just happened?!?

Good story but

That ending sucked!!!!! The story line was amazing- but the ending left the story open. Now the readers have to imagine what happened to the main characters. Ugh

Short changed

Well where do I start ???? First I rounded the score up from a 2.5. The narrator’s take made me laugh out loud during some of the serious parts. Her voice wasn’t meant for this story. Then the end leaves you empty handed!!!! I could go on but I won’t 😳! This is the 2nd Lucinda Berry book I’ve read and it will be the last 😒

Can't stand this narrator doing a man's voice.

Why does the publisher or whomever chooses narrator cut costs by having a female do a male voice? Ruins a good story. The difference between being willing to use a credit or not. Thank goodness this one was a sale one.

Are you kidding me with this ending?

First of all, stupid women. Second, an attorney who doesn't know the law. Third, abrupt ending.

slow with no suspense

The description of this book sounds like it will be good. It was a bit disappointing. It is slow moving and hs not suspense. The story is a good one, just takes too long to get sanywhere.



RECOMMENDATION: MAYBE

Oooh... this was really good!

Unfortunately, Krystal and Nichole were dealt quite the hand as children. They went from bad to worse but fortunately, their lives as adults turned out pretty well. Well, until the past comes back for them.

Wonder if it would have been better to read…

One of my favorite parts of reading is authors ability to say so much with less. To paint a scene and create an entire backstory with just one sentence. Unfortunately, this was the complete opposite. I found myself constantly irritated and distracted by the unnecessary comments and over-explaining. And it was almost every other sentence! I almost gave up reading several times, and only ended up staying to hear the end of the story.

Here’s an example:

“ ‘Sorry I don’t have whiskey,’ I say. He’s a whiskey drinker, but I don’t drink anything except wine. So that’s why I only have wine in the house.”

Literally everything after the first sentence could be removed and it would still carry the same weight. It would probably even make it more interesting because it would leave some of the story up to your imagination. Additionally, the similes/metaphors were so silly and cliché that it almost made me feel like I was in the mind of a 12 year old.
The story was interesting enough to keep me listening until the end, despite all of this. But it would’ve been much more enjoyable had all the superficial, unnecessary fluff been taken out.

Ok but

Way too shouty. I didn't realise there were 2 different narrators they sounded so much alike. Both lacked any emotional range and I might've enjoyed this story more had it been more quietly and subtly narrated (often far more sinister).

Trauma, loss, love and desire.

Krystal and Nicole are foster sisters who have a bond that can’t be broken. They live for their early years with the horrible combination of Veronica and her mother. They live on separate sides of the house.

When Nicole is committed to a psychiatric hospital for trying to kill her husband Aiden, Krystal who is now a lawyer needs to get to the bottom of what is going on.

The story alternates from the present to the past and extremely well as the story begins to get put together one piece at a time.

There is a great storyline to follow of trauma, loss, love and desire. Well worth picking up. Would recommend.

Powerful well crafted

Powerfully read and a simple clean psychological story that is put together so well that it becomes compelling through curiosity with a nice twist at the end. The reader excelled adding to a well constructed book.
