    Sweet, moving, and undeniably affecting!

    How to Keep a Secret is a beautifully written, absorbing story that delves into the emotional ties and complex bonds between mothers, daughters and sisters and immerses you in a tale about accepting the things you can't change, letting go of the past, taking chances, and moving on. The prose is eloquent and well turned. The characters are genuine, sophisticated, and scarred. And the story is an exceptionally touching tale about life, loss, love, grief, adultery, forgiveness, familial drama, friendship, infertility, teenage angst, community, courage, happiness, and second-chance romance. How to Keep a Secret is the perfect mix of heart, hope, grit, and humour. It's heart wrenching, funny, encouraging, and without a doubt Morgan at her best.

    Heartwarming and real!

    This book is a delightful departure from Sarah Morgan’s usual writing and one I recommend be read. All the women in the family, Mom, Nancy, her 2 daughters, Lauran and Jenna, and granddaughter, Mack, are all dealing with difficult events in their lives. It was heartwarming to read as they faced the secrets of the past and come together to support one another. It is honest, heartwarming and emotional; had me crying many times throughout the book. I completely cherished this book!

    Another Great Book by Sarah Morgan!

    Lauren has her home and her life in England in perfect order, until one afternoon-everything becomes a disaster. Her sister, Jenna, across the pond comes to the rescue but has struggles of her own. Little do they know, their own mother also has secrets of her own that may tear the family apart. Can these three find a way to work together and work though these issues? ​This book was heavy! I cried with the characters, I laughed with the characters, I felt second-hand embarrassment. Basically, this book has all of the feels and I absolutely loved it. Just when you think it can't get worse, it often does. The images we portray are a mask for the secrets we keep. Thankfully, there is some scandal, humor, and hope thrown in to lighten the mood at times when it gets almost too dark. ​​How To Keep A Secret​ is different from the previous books that I have read from ​Sarah Morgan​, the From Manhattan With Love series in ​the sense that the perspectives alternate from more than just the two main characters. On the other hand, this book was compares in the way that it dealt with more than one crisis at a time. But this one had four surprising crises! However, Sarah Morgan wrote this novel so fluidly that it all blended together well in a realistic "when it rains, it pours" sense. For me, it also helped with the pace. The emotions were so raw at times that I had to put the book down as the pain that each of these characters are going through is very evident. Most prominent were: grief, frustration, regret, and panic. ​My favorite character was Lauren's teenage daughter, Mack, because she is brutally honest yet terribly insecure. I think out of all of the characters, she developed the most. She also was the source of a very pivotal surprise in the plot of which I laughed out loud in surprise then immediately felt guilty. I really appreciated that some of the perspective was told in her point-of-view as it added depth to the overall mood of the novel. For those who may be triggered or offended: there are themes of ​grief, infertility, infidelity, mild foul language, and one graphically sexual scenario. Please note: an electronic advanced reader copy of this book was generously provided for free by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    FANTASTIC Women's Fiction

    HOW TO KEEP A SECRET Sarah Morgan Morgan’s first foray into mainstream women’s fiction is a huge homerun, a fresh, fast-paced emotional novel with a lot of heart. Its a fantastic tale about keeping secrets, grief, starting over and second chances and proves you can go home again. It’s poignant, about family dynamics and dysfunction but it’s also full of well-timed humor and wit. The author has absolute mastery over all her mesmerizing, memorable characters but one angst-filled, not sure where she fits in the world troubled teen who suffers a terrible loss then moves across the ocean is a stand-out and how Morgan develops Mack’s character so that readers will experience every one of those emotions with her is simply amazing. Be prepared for a one-sitting, hard-to-put-down page-turner that fans of Karen White, Kristin Hannah and Susan Wiggs will simply adore. SYNOPSIS: Thirty-five year old Lauren Hudson’s world just imploded, her husband Ed died leaving she and their sixteen-year-old daughter Mack in financial ruin because of secrets he kept If that’s not enough Mack just discovered that Ed wasn’t her biological dad thanks to secrets they were both keeping from her. She can think of only one place to go, back home where both good and bad memories exist. Only when she gets there her biggest secret is there to meet her. Mack Hudson just lost her dad, or wait he wasn’t her dad so what exactly did she lose besides her sense of belonging and her mind. Oh and yeah her mom just moves her from London to Martha’s Vineyard so that sucks too! Thirty-two year old Jenna Sullivan has the perfect life, the perfect job and married to the perfect husband. Too bad she can’t seem to get the perfect baby to go with it. Maybe she’ll fall apart later, right now her big sister Lauren needs her, a big sister who apparently was keeping secrets from her. Nancy Stewart has a secret and unfortunately when both her daughters, Lauren and Jenna could use some easy sailing she’s going to rough up their waters.

    Great story!

    Family dynamics steal the show in the latest from Sarah Morgan! I was drawn in immediately into the life of Lauren, then when things happen for her, it leads her back home to the US and we meet her sister and mother and start to unravel what makes each character tick and what secrets from the past will mean for the future of this family. They're faced with challenges of keeping secrets, of accepting people's mistakes and most of all of learning to forgive and still love each other. Really great story! When Lauren Hudson's world crumbles around her, it sends her and her daughter Mack back home to Martha's Vineyards for the summer. She will have to pick up the pieces from the fallout of the secrets she's kept for all of these years, and try to move forward with a new life. Her sister Jenna Sullivan is there to support her every step of the way, but she has her own issues distracting her as well. She wants a baby more than anything, but it's not happening, and her husband Greg just doesn't seem all that upset about it. It weighs on her mind each and every day, so how can he be so casual about it? Her mother Nancy is just as standoffish and judgemental as always, but as they sort through a lifetime of memories over the summer, secrets come to light that explain just why she has always been the way she's been. Truths are uncovered, new lives are started and above all, love is showered all around!
