Summary

It's hard being that woman, the one whose husband disappeared. He went out five years ago for a pint of milk and never came back. So here I am with a daughter who blames me for everything, a son trying his best to pick up the pieces and a gaggle of neighbours who are incredibly nosy. Then I find a left luggage ticket in the pocket of one of his old coats and suddenly I'm thinking... What if he's not dead? What if he's still out there somewhere?

Too much detail

Generally I enjoyed the way the plot developed, but I thought there was too much detail in Danny’s part of the story which became rather boring.

Lost its way a little

The first half of the novel was great. Funny, page turner. However part two was slow and didn't seem to get going.

rambling and unfocused

What would have made The Secrets We Keep better?

more of a real story line

What could Jonathan Harvey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

If it did not go on in detail on things that did not develope the storyline. The characters were not likable and in the end |I gave up as it just got boring

What three words best describe Gareth Bennett-Ryan and Emma Gregory ’s voice?

Irritating and annoying
