Our Little Secret
Summary: THE TOP TEN INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE YOU CAN’T MISS…
“A cracking read…Our Little Secret builds to a deliciously dark conclusion.” –Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10
Roz Nay’s Our Little Secret is a twisted tale of love, pain, and revenge that will stay with the reader long after they turn the last page.
They say you never forget your first love. What they don’t say though, is that sometimes your first love won’t forget you…
A police interview room is the last place Angela expected to find herself today. It’s been hours, and they keep asking her the same inane questions over and over. “How do you know the victim?” “What’s your relationship with Mr. Parker?” Her ex’s wife has gone missing, and anyone who was close to the couple is a suspect. Angela is tired of the bottomless questions and tired of the cold room that stays the same while a rotating litany of interrogators changes shifts around her. But when criminologist Novak takes over, she can tell he’s not like the others. He’s ready to listen, and she knows he’ll understand. When she tells him that her story begins a decade before, long before Saskia was in the picture, he gives her the floor.
A twenty-something young professional, Angela claims to have no involvement. How could she? It’s been years since she and H.P., Mr. Parker that is, were together. As her story unfolds, it deepens and darkens. There’s a lot to unpack… betrayal, jealousy, and a group of people who all have motives for retribution. If Angela is telling the truth, then who’s lying?
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
For the most part, unreliable narrators are characters that I love. You never know quite what to expect from them and that is the main part of their charm.
Angela def has charm. As she tells her story- you can see some of the writing on the wall about things and can easily get sucked into her story- so much that you begin to believe her about everything.
What I liked:
The cover. Not traditionally pretty, but it fits with the story and may even give you a bit of a chill looking at it.
Angela. Took a few pages to get warmed up to her, but once she got her hooks in me- I had to know what happened next.
The ending. I mean the very, actual, last sentences wrote ending. I could not decide how it was going to end- but I loved it.
Bottom line: If you like unreliable narrators that are kinda relatable and understandable- well…. meet Angela.

Unreliable is right, T! Angela was almost too unreliable for me. I felt like she was jerking me around the whole time and just wanted to smack her. I was as surprised by the ending as you, though. Since this was Roz Nay’s debut, I’ll be looking forward to more.
I was just back and forth on her alot. I found myself numerous times getting sucked into her story and then thinking later…. Did that happen? Or was she telling her truth? I def want to see more books by Roz Nay for sure!
I have just started reading books with the “unreliable narrator” and I love the psychological twists!
You’re def going to enjoy the unreliable narrators!!!!
