Rachel is Diana's sister and is currently living in Thailand following the death of her career surrounding a phone hacking scandal. When Diana reaches out for help, Rachel decides it's high time to try and make amends with her family. And so begins a journey across many countries to find the answers behind Julian's death. As usual Tasmina Perry certainly weaves a great tale; however I had real issues with Diana. Rachel I really liked, especially as she was the underdog, but Diana was just too frail and pathetic for my liking.
With that one small flaw out the way, I can honestly say the story itself certainly didn't disappoint. There is a lot of mystery and intrigue and the more questions Rachel asks, the more questions it raises too. There were a few additional characters I really liked such as Rachel's business partner Liam and her old colleague Ross. There were lost of dark and murky elements to the storyline including affairs, drugs and contested will. Overall it was again what I would rate a success from Perry, however it lacked that certain something to make it a 5 star read from me. Still a solid 4/5 book and one that I think her fans will love.
The novel goes through many twists, turns and some dead ends before Rachel is able to discover the unpalatable truth. There are many strands of romantic interest in these pages - from Diana herself to Rachel's relationship with her business partner to Julian's seemingly numerous affairs. These add rather than detract from the main storyline.
Tasmina Perry's real talent is in characterization. She is able to individualize all her characters so that their humanity is all too real and the reader increasingly cares about their well being as the novel progresses. By the end we really want Rachel to get her man and for Diana to find some happiness and closure. We even care if Dot can make a success of her husband's old business.
This is not a great novel and I would describe it as a bit girly. However if you like a good Whodunnit and enjoy romantic twists this is quite a good read.
There is a balance between fast-paced moments of intrigue and suspicion and the slower, more sentimental moments that make you reflect on your own life. She also has a marvellous ability of describing the male characters in just enough detail to spike your interest, while leaving the rest to your individual imagination. She has certainly left me wanting more and I'm going to have to go off in search of the rest of her books now!

But what is a 'good' secret and what is a 'bad' secret.
Diana and Julian Denver have it all [or so it seems] lovely family home, good solid marriage, son, the works.
But nothing is what is seems...
Julian suddenly dies....
What of? I hear you asking
BUT Diana has a feeling, all is NOT what is seems.
Nothing is straight forward
Rachel her sister is contacted by Diana, she's a reporter, she needs her help.
She's now an EX reporter and seemingly living the life of luxury....
I loved this book, I love this author, so this was a delight to read, and definitely deserves my full 5 stars.
I would like to thank Headline Via Net Galley for my copy and say sorry I hadn't read it until now, it got lost on my Kindle!
