BLURB taken from Goodreads
The most successful novel from a UK author with more than ten bestselling novels to her credit, Secrets will tug at your heart and whisper in your ear.
I found this book rather slow to begin with and difficult to concentrate on to read, however it did pick up pace and then became a really good read. The beginning of the book seriously made me doubt the above statement of "Secrets will tug at your heart and whisper in your ear" however that statement is certainly true for the last two thirds of this book.
I enjoyed the character of Joe even though for most of his relationship with Tess at the beginning he is "doing the dirty on her" with other women he met on his constant travels. Whilst Joe is off travelling and womanising, Tess is left at home to keep the house in order and keep an eye on Joe's mother. The relationship between Tess and Joe is a turbulent though it does have a happy ending.
