Our Review

The Secrets She Keeps by Michael Robotham is fast-paced and suspenseful. It kept me entertained until the last page.

The Secrets She Keeps is about the unexpected friendship between two pregnant woman who couldn’t be more different. Meghan has the perfect life, a perfect sport presenter husband and two perfect kids.

Agatha knows all this about Meghan and much more thanks to her secret hideaway at the bottom of Meghan’s garden. She knows what she likes to eat, where she shops, what time she drops her children off at school.

Meghan doesn’t realise that her chance encounter with Agatha in her local supermarket is anything but and will change her life forever.

Agatha works in a supermarket stacking shelves but that may not be the case for much longer as her boss doesn’t like the fact she is pregnant and makes that abundantly clear. Added to that the father of the baby she is carrying doesn’t even know she is pregnant and broke up with her shortly before returning to his posting in the navy.

Agatha’s interest in Meghan has crossed over the border into obsession. She wants what Meghan has…including her baby. Meghan writes a successful parenting blog which Meghan reads religiously every night.

Agatha doesn’t know she has a secret but she does know that she has many secrets of her own. Secrets related to her own troubled past. Secrets Meghan would be horrified to know.

The Secrets She Keeps was an enthralling book, not least because of it’s well-developed characters. Even Agatha, whilst not a likeable character, is certainly a character who will cause readers to feel empathy.

Meghan is not portrayed not just as a weak, victim but also as someone with guilt and complications of her own.

Meghan’s husband Jack, is not just someone I frequently wanted to punch, he is also someone I felt pity for at times.

Without giving any more information away I will say The Secrets She Keeps was an interesting read.
