One Last Secret by Adele Parks is a marvellous contemporary psychological thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. It is a compulsive read that I could not put down.
The reader enters a world that is shady and secretive. All sorts of people are hiding who they really are. It is a world of secrets and lies, play acting and imagination.
The reader joins a character in this world as we wonder what is real? What is imagined? Can what our eyes see and our ears hear be trusted? A character finds herself unable to trust her senses.
As the action heats up, the reader is completely glued as one jaw dropping moment follows another, and another! As I finished the book, my mouth was open in an ‘Oh! Wow!’
All the characters were well drawn. I liked the leading lady. It was easy to see how and why she chose her choices even if they were not always wise. She did what she could in order to survive.
As with all Adele Parks novels, One Last Secret was a complex, well thought out and executed plotline that gripped me from the start. It was another marvellous offering from Adele Parks.
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
