A pupil and a teacher. Is it ever right to break the rules?
Jessica Hart has never forgotten Matthew Landley. After all, he was her first love when she was 15 years old. But he was also her school maths teacher, and their forbidden affair ended in scandal, with his arrest and imprisonment.
Now, 17 years later, Matthew returns to Norfolk, with a new identity and a long-term girlfriend and a young daughter who know nothing of what happened before. Yet when he runs into Jessica, neither of them can ignore the emotional ties that bind them together. With so many secrets to keep hidden, how long can Jessica and Matthew avoid the dark mistakes of their past imploding in the present?
From debut author Rebecca Done, This Secret We're Keeping is a powerful and provocative novel about the ties which can keep us together - or tear us apart.

I couldn't even listen to this after the first chapter. It was unbelievable that the narrator kept swallowing, licking her lips and making general horrible mouth noises. Gross.
Some interesting moments.
Story is rather slow, but the constant swallowing by the narrator was most off-putting.
I really enjoyed this book...at times the story seem to drag on and felt a little tedious but overall, a shady subject with an insiders light.
I downloaded this expecting nothing really, but actually I couldn't stop listening. It's nothing groundbreaking but a good listen! The ending wasn't what I expected either!
However, if you are sensitive to weird mouth noises, the female narrator can get a bit annoying at times.
This book was quite boring . The story idea was ok but it went on , and on , and on . How many times did I hear " the day of the bbq" ? I had no sympathy for any of the characters.
Very slow moving. Narrator made me feel like she was trying not to vomit, constantly swallowing. Characters not very likeable
A little boring. Found it difficult to stick at it to the end.
Awful gulping and swallowing. Feel quite nauseous listening to it
