  • Blah

    I just couldn't get behind this. It was billed as a psychological thriller but it read like a soap opera that tried to turn into a thriller in the last 1/5 of the book. Janey was kind of an idiot. She didn't even know what her own husband did for a living. It was one time when I realized that I wouldn't want to know some peoples' innermost thoughts. It would make me lose faith in the intelligence of the human race. And then BOOM it was over. And the secret had nothing to do with anything.

  • Entertaining

    3.5 Stars. After being disappointed with "The Apartment", this book is definitely a step up! The main character is Janey, she's married to Isaac who just received a "too good to be true" job offer and they're packing up their meager life, with their son, and moving into an elite neighborhood. There are so many parallels that I was drawing to "The Apartment", the main character is always an insecure mother and a great opportunity arises, only to realize that there were major strings attached. The big secret that Janey's mom reveals before she dies appears to be the main driver of the story-line, as it's the beginning of the book and is alluded to throughout, but is then hastily wrapped up. When you find out, it doesn't quite tie to the other story-line of Isaac's new job and the elite group of lady friends that Janey gets involved with. I felt like these two story lines were just mashed together. Otherwise, this was an entertaining read. I simply love the rich lady upcrust drama. A special thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture, and KL Slater for providing me with an ARC.

  • Frenemies

    Little Whispers KL Slater On sale: 5/21/2020 New house, new school, new friends...but should Janey trust new life she’s creating for herself? Another quick read by KL Slater! I breezed through this book in a day! I’ve read a few by this author and they’ve all been highly bingeable reads! I enjoy her writing style! The beginning of this one starts with Janey’s mom sharing a secret with Janey in her deathbed. We don’t know what the secret is but Janey struggles with it throughout the story. Janey meets 3 other moms at her son’s new school and they become fast friends! Of course the secret that Janey is carrying is revealed in a night filled with drinking and assurances that her secret would never be shared. The only part of this story that bothered me were all of the signs that Janey didn’t pick up on surrounding her new friends. I spent a few moments thinking, “what is wrong with you.” Ultimately, Janey’s secret is used to tear her new life apart. Her husband’s lucrative new job,that’s afforded them their new life, isn’t what it seems. This story had a few twists I didn’t accurately predict. If you’ve enjoyed Slater’s other books, or stories like Big Little Lies, I think you’ll enjoy this one! ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 3.5 stars for this one! Thank you @netgalley @bookouture and K L Slater for an advanced copy of the book for my honest review! It’s an overcast gloomy day in N.C.! How’s the weather where you are?

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Truly Magnificent!

    Starting a book by K.L. Slater, in this case my fifth, is always a good moment as I know I'll be in for a real treat. Little Whispers begins shortly after Janey Markham loses her mother for whom she'd been a carer. She, her husband Isaac and their young son Rowan, have been struggling to make ends meet since she stopped working as a teaching assistant. But now, things are looking up: Isaac has landed a new job with a very good pay packet and the Markam's are moving to West Bridgford, England, the smartest address in a desirable suburban town. There is however a blot on the landscape - just before her mother passed away, she revealed a dark secret to her daughter, and one that totally changed Janey's outlook of her world. As she and her family settle into their new life at Buckingham Crescent, Jane hopes to keep her terrible secret under wraps. Worried that she’ll be excluded by the inner circle of local mothers, Janey is thrilled when she meets Tanya, the kind of woman she has always looked up to. Tanya takes Janey under her wing, but when a tipsy evening ends with Janey revealing her closely guarded shocking secret, she can only pray that Tanya will keep it to herself because after all, she is a trustworthy and reliable friend...isn't she? The abundant twists and misdirections in Little Whispers was bamboozling! K.L. Slater's writing style was as delightful as ever, leaving me no clues as to what was coming next, helping to maintain the high levels of intrigue. Throughout this dark and devious tale the author cannily continued to plant doubts, so I was struggling to figure out the truth from the lies. With no disappointments, this was a cleverly plotted page-turner and its brisk pace soon led up to an exciting and explosive conclusion. Harboured secrets, mistrust, deceit, gossip, betrayal, blackmail, jealousy and selfishness all had a place in this fabulous and compulsive thriller. A stupendous tale that blew me away, I totally recommend Little Whispers and I'm already looking forward to K.L. Slater's next offering! Well worth 5 shiny stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

  • Trust no one

    This is something of a slow burner that gradually pulls you in until you don’t want to put it down. Janey is struggling to cope with not just the death of her mother but the mind blowing secret her mum revealed to her right before her death. When her husband gets an incredible new job offer she sees the opportunity to ditch the debt they were struggling with and have a fresh start as it involves relocating. I really enjoyed seeing Janey build relationship up with her cliquey new neighbours, especially Tanya who takes her under her wing. It’s easy to see how Janey wants to rebel from her mothers conservative ways and why she would be flattered to be part of a friendship group, especially one as glamorous as this. I was really eager to learn Janey’s secret and it was frustrating having to wait until near the end however the other twists and turns were even more monumental.

    Thanks for your feedback!
