Thank you @minotaur_books for my gifted copy of ‘Little Secrets‘ by Jennifer Hillier!
.
From the author of one of my favorite thrillers EVER, ‘Jar of Hearts‘, a mother driven to the edge by the disappearance of her son learns her husband is having an affair with the woman who might have kidnapped him.
.
Four hundred & eighty seconds. That’s how long it took for someone to steal Marin Machado’s four-year-old son.
.
Marin had the perfect life. Married to her college sweetheart, she owns a chain of upscale hair salons, & Derek runs his own company. They’re admired in their community & are a loving family. Up until the day Sebastian is taken.
.
A year later, Marin is a shadow of herself. The FBI search has gone cold. The publicity has faded. She & her husband rarely speak. The only thing keeping her going is the unlikely chance that one day Sebastian reappears. She hires a P.I. to pick up where the police left off, but instead of finding him, she discovers that Derek is having an affair with a younger woman.
.
Kenzie Li is an artist & grad student—Instagram famous—& up to her eyeballs in debt. She knows Derek is married. She also knows he’s rich, & dating him comes with perks: help with bills, trips away, expensive gifts. He isn’t her first rich boyfriend, but she finds herself hoping he’ll be the last. She’s falling for him—& that was never part of the plan.

Discovery of the affair sparks Marin back to life. She’s lost her son; she’s not about to lose her husband, too. Kenzie is an enemy with a face, which means this is a problem Marin can fix. But as she sets a plan in motion, another revelation surfaces. Derek’s lover might know what happened to their son. And so might Derek.
.
Little Secrets‘ is absolutely gripping, all-consuming, twisty & darkly emotional. You will want to binge-read this one, as it is perfectly paced & just so freakin’ good! I plan to grab up some of Hillier’s earlier books now: ‘Creep’, ‘Freak’, ‘The Butcher’, & ‘Wonderland’ & if you haven’t read ‘Jar of Hearts‘, try it on audio…it’s fantastic & will haunt you! (Not gonna lie, Hillier’s mind scares me a little bit…)
