Publisher's Summary

Secret Smile is a gripping psychological thriller from the top-ten bestselling author Nicci French.

You have an affair. You finish it. You think it's over. You're dead wrong....

Miranda Cotton thinks she's put boyfriend Brendan out of her life for good. But two weeks later, he's intimately involved with her sister. Soon what began as an embarrassment becomes threatening - then even more terrifying than a girl's worst nightmare. Because this time Brendan will stop at nothing to be part of Miranda's life - even if it means taking it from her ....

Nicci French is the pseudonym for Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. The couple live in Suffolk and have written thirteen other best-selling novels, all published by Penguin: Complicit, What to Do When Someone Dies, Until It's Over, Losing You, Catch Me When I Fall, The Memory Game, Beneath the Skin, The Safe House, The Red Room, Land of the Living, Killing Me Softly, and, most recently, Blue Monday and Tuesday's Gone in the brilliant new Frieda Klein series.

    "Gripping"

    Really enjoyed. Mainly listened to whilst driving and ironing. Have to admit , ironed slowly as it kept me gripped. Totally believable although once or twice I thought it was a big daft towards the end but on the whole thoroughly enjoyed

    "Compelling"

    Initially was very frustrated by the story line but found this to be a compelling listen .

    Becomes less frustrating as the story develops.

    Good listen for those who like psychological thrillers.

    "engaging story and an easy listen"

    the narrator was good, sounded like she had a cold but at emotional parts it helped make it sound authentic. I think the ending could have been expanded more as it sounded like an after thought rather than a twist, but I liked it and if you want an interesting easy listen with a good narrator and characters then download this one.

    "Defeated me"

    It is rare for an audio book to defeat me. This one has. Story doesn't grab me, though all the other Nicki French series has. Performance is really poor. I found it frustrating as I could hear in my head how it should have sounded.

    "Psychological thriller"

    Pacey, exciting thriller - sadly, after starting this, I realised I'd seen the story on TV. Nonetheless, the story bore repetition and the audiobook was more satisfying than the TV version. My credulity was stretched in places but I am happy to recommend it as an entertaining page turner.

    "Very entertaining"

    This book was very entertaining and very well read. it will keep you questioning to the bitter end. There are heart breaking events. A bit disappointed about the jump to the conclusion as I feel it wasn't bridged properly but other than that I enjoyed it.
