    Friendship, Obsession, and Secrets

    Sue Watson’s All Her Secrets starts with Lucy, a frumpy British schoolteacher, and her best friend Amber, a glamorous TV weather announcer. As an infertile woman, it pains Lucy to hear all of the other women in her neighborhood talk at length about their children. Amber is the only other childless woman in the neighborhood, and provides Lucy a peek into a cooler, more interesting way of life than she’s used to. In return, Lucy gives Amber a steady presence who doesn’t judge her or want to use her. Lucy is as sweet as the cakes she offers as social fuel; Amber is ambitious and image-obsessed. Amber wishes she had a loving husband like Lucy, and Lucy wishes she was as beautiful as Amber. But Amber starts to receive messages from a potential stalker, which concerns Lucy. Lucy is the “mother hen” type of friend who gets a little too concerned. As the stalker gets more aggressive, Lucy becomes more insistent on helping Amber. That, it emerges, is not the best idea Lucy has ever had. The “her” in the title could refer to either Lucy or Amber. In addition to feeling different from the other women in their neighborhood, both women experienced troubled childhoods with unreliable mothers. Each has a number of secrets from her youth, some but not all of which they confide to each other over Prosecco. The novel begins with Lucy’s narration. In the middle, Amber has her say. Both women try to paint themselves in the best light. At some points, a mysterious and downright creepy third narrator speaks up in short bursts, too. This is an addictive, fast-reading domestic suspense novel about bad decisions, terrible parents, jealousy, public perception, gossip, lies, and of course, secrets. All the fun stuff, in other words. It’ll liven up a weekend and make one perhaps a little more careful about forming friendships with new neighbors. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC copy they provided me.

    Super!

    An awesome premise! Lucy and Matt are childless - due to infertility issues. Then who moves into the neighborhood but the fading star (yet still glamourous) Amber who is 43. She works on local TV now - but she used to be national. Lucy and Amber become friends - but Lucy seems to have to do everything on Amber's terms. Lucy is lonely because her husband often works late with his drama class - so she gloms on to Amber (and her fame). Amber becomes pregnant - probably with the very-married Ben who Amber has obsessed over for 20 years. But, there have been others. You see, Amber also has a stalker. For some (to me STRANGE) reason, she moves in with Matt and Lucy for safety concerns. Lucy is overly dramatic about this stalker. Amber is reluctant to have the police involved. At first, Matt really is unhappy with the situation but eventually he warms to Amber and her baby, Mia. Most readers can guess the rest - even if Lucy doesn't. Amber continues to stay at their house. Totally strange. But Amber now has live-in baby sitters and Lucy has a baby to love. Things go from bad to worse - and the stalker issue is still not for sure fully resolved, yet. The pasts come back to haunt both Amber and Lucy. Their secrets become a manipulative way to get even... Lucy comes across as quite ignorant of her situation. She is 43 and a school teacher. Please!!! She should know better! Amber, well, we know she is a user from the start. This is an OK read, yet, a bit predictable. Many thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for a good read.

    Fell asleep by page three

    I don't think its the author's fault i don't like this book. I guess i like different writing style. Despite all the rave reviews i couldn't get past page three. Page one didn't grab me at all but i pushed on a bit more. Then i decided the suburban setting and how it was going just wasn't interesting to me. Suggest a preview before you buy......
