One Little Secret

 One Little Secret 

Author: Cate Holahan

Narrator: Hillary Huber

Publisher: Blackstone

Year: 2019

Three married couples go away for a beach vacation while their kids are away at various summer camps. It should be a week of sun, sand, food, drinks, and fun. Instead it turns into too much booze, secrets, lies, and murder when one of the wives is found dead on the beach. 

I’m usually pretty good keeping tack of a book’s characters in my head but for some reason, it took me a few chapters to get the husband and wife combinations straight. That was no fault of the author. I was listening to the audiobook and got distracted by the dogs. I should have just rewound the book. That’s on me. But once I got myself up to speed, I was good to go. I don’t want to give away too much, so I’ll try to be general. Several people on the vacation are entwined in something and have motive to murder. The plot is tightly constructed and moves along at a good pace. The characters are all flawed- some more so than others. It’s billed as a locked room mystery, so if you enjoy those, this book is a good choice for you. This is an enjoyable and satisfying mystery. Narrator Hillary Huber provides a great performance of the audiobook. TW- sexual assault and physical abuse. 

We’re traveling home from the beach today. Heading back north where the current temp is 14 degrees with snow coming on Monday. 🙁 What’s your weather doing?
