Want to know a Secret? – Freida McFadden

Everyone has secrets.

YouTube baking sensation April Masterson knows the secret to the perfect gooey brownies. Or how to make key lime squares that will melt in your mouth. But if you keep watching her offline, you may find out some other secrets about April.  Secrets she’d rather you didn’t know.

Like where did her son go when he snuck out of the house?  What was she doing with the local soccer coach behind fogged windows?

And what’s buried in her backyard?

Everyone has secrets. Some are worse than others.

April’s secrets are enough to destroy her. 

I’ll make sure of that.

My Review:

Freida McFadden is my new go-to-author when I need a guaranteed page-turner and Want To Know a Secret does exactly that.

The blurb above tells you that this story is about April Masterson. She is married to handsome and successful lawyer Elliott, they have a little boy called Bobby and she spends her days helping out at the PTA, or filming her YouTube baking show called “April’s Sweet Secrets”.

The first half of the book is narrated by April and almost immediately we find out April has a stalker who sends her malicious texts and seems to know some very dangerous secrets about her. Secrets that April will do anything to keep from being revealed.

With a cast of interesting characters from her new nextdoor neighbour Maria to her best friend Julie, the reader is taken on an entertaining ride trying to work out who is April’s stalker, what secrets do they know and more importantly how do we make the perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie?

I’m not going to go into anymore details about the book, because that takes the fun away from the reader. All I will say is that once again the author has written a fast moving, page-turner which kept me entertained throughout.

Want To Know A Secret is a twisty, easy read and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a quick fix of psychological thrillers.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
