One Little Secret by Cate Holahan Review

Three neighborhood couples rent a glass beach home in the Hamptons…but not all return...

This was a twisty summer read to say the least!

I must forewarn that there might be triggers for domestic abuse and sexual abuse. If you are sensitive to those subjects you might want to skip this one.

If you are okay with that kind of subject it was a great whodunnit, mixed with a thriller aspect and mixed with police procedural! A great combination in my book.

I loved how the stories were all integrated, this really helped in creating the character development further. All the characters had their own stories and brought something to the mystery. When you think it's going one direction, the story switches just as fast.

Some of the characters I found were relatable and I was really sympathizing with them, which kept me hooked because I was invested in the characters and the story! 

Finally, the ending was satisfying! I love when all the loose ends are tied in the story. This was an overall great read that was skillfully written! You will not be bored!

Thank you to Meryl Moss Media for providing me with an ARC of this book. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.

Everyone has a secret. For some, it's worth dying to protect. For others, it's worth killing.

The glass beach house was supposed to be the getaway that Susan needed. Eager to help her transplanted family set down roots in their new town - and desperate for some kid-free conversation - she invites her new neighbors to join in on a week-long sublet with her and her workaholic husband.

Over the course of the first evening, liquor loosens inhibitions and lips. The three couples begin picking up on the others' marital tensions and work frustrations, as well as revealing their own. But someone says too much. And the next morning one of the women is discovered dead on the private beach.

Town detective Gabby Watkins must figure out who permanently silenced the deceased. As she investigates, she learns that everyone in the glasshouse was hiding something that could tie them to the murder and that the biggest secrets of all are often in plain sight for anyone willing to look.
