Her Little Secret is the chilling new read from author Julia Stone, who uses her own professional background in Psychology to write a jaw-dropping page-turner.
His therapist. Their love affair. Her Little Secret.
Cristina knows all about boundaries. As a therapist, it is vital that she keeps her clients at a professional distance.
Enter new client Leon: educated, charming, affluent — and newly bereaved, following the death of his married lover, Michelle. Cristina soon learns that Leon has an ulterior motive for approaching her: Michelle was one of her clients, and Leon is desperate for her insights into the woman he loved.
Moved by the depth of his feelings, Cristina is drawn to help him through his grief. But as she struggles to ignore her own growing attraction to sophisticated, attentive Leon, her boundaries start to blur and then collapse, and the two embark on their own clandestine love affair.
But why does Leon switch so quickly from charm to criticism, attentiveness to distance? Can anyone truly be as perfect as he paints his beloved Michelle to have been, and what is hidden inside of her off-limits therapy file? Torn between her conscience and curiosity, Cristina is about to discover the truth is far beyond anything she could have imagined…
Her Little Secret is an absolutely creepy but riveting page-turner which we ended up reading in one sitting as we couldn’t put it down.
We spent most of the book internally screaming at Cristina to get out of the relationship, run and never look back. Cristina has her flaws, a fair few of them, but she’s a character you can’t help but root for and want to protect and save her from what she finds herself entangled in. And the ending well after twist upon twist it’s one you really do not see coming.
If you are a fan of You, Before I Go to Sleep and Obsession, Her Little Secret then you need to add this to your to-read list.
