    2.5 stars, rounded upThis book starts off very strangely. Angela is being interrogated by the police about a missing woman. But instead of answering the detective’s questions, she launches into a story about her days in high school with her best friend, HP. The story of her life goes on with the detective only occasionally asking her questions about Saskia, the missing woman and the HP’s wife. I’m sorry, am I really supposed to believe this...

    Okay I may have been a little hasty or maybe just plain wrong when I said I was swearing off thrillers because they were all blendng together. Really meant to stick to it but then the publisher sent me this book and if they send them I shall read and review, seems only fair. Then this book proved me wrong, and it has been quite a while since I have read a book I didn't want to put down. Part of itt was the format of the book, big enough print, ni...

    OUR LITTLE SECRET, is the debut character-driven psychological thriller by author Roz Naya, that definitely packs a punch for such a short read at 228 pages. about a missing woman, a tangled love triangle, and the secrets we keep and the secrets we share. I couldn’t put this book down. I loved it! “It was the greatest love affair of the century.”The compelling story takes place in a police station where Angela, the narrator, is being held i...

    Our Little Secret by Roz Nay is a novel of psychological suspense that is not what one would call a super twisty tale but that of one that is super twisted. A story of love, betrayal and obsession that kept the pages turning.As the book begins Angela Petitjean is sitting in a cold interrogation room with a revolving door of police officers asking her the same question over and over. Where is Saskia and what has happened to her? When Homicide De...

    So it's now been a few days since I read this and I think I'm ready to review it. I said in my initial review that this was the best thriller I've ever read and that still stands. At the heart of the story is a girl named Angela and she is being interviewed in the disappearance of a woman. We don't know who this woman is, but Angela starts to tell us a love story and slowly things start to unravel from there. I won this through a Goodreads giveaw...

Her backbone aches from time spent leaning against the rigid back of the chair. Novak zips out question after question at Angela in the hopes that she will reveal what she knows about her ex-boyfriend's missing wife. What happened to Saskia and did Angela play a part in her disappearance?Roz Nay begins this story in that inte...

    Roz Nay's Our Little Secret is a delectably dark and twisted thriller that I am now obsessed with! Right from the very beginning, you meet the main deck of characters that will come into play here, with the protagonist Angela Petitjean being pulled in by Detective Novak for questioning. Detective Novak is seeking answers to the disappearance to Saskia Parker, but Angela is confused as to why they are keeping her in interrogation. Angela is just...

    A woman is questioned by police after her ex-boyfriend’s wife disappears. Lots of great reviews for this book, but unfortunately it wasn’t for me. The story lacked suspense, and the characters didn’t grab my attention. I usually enjoy unlikable or unreliable characters, but not so much this time. I couldn’t understand the reasoning behind many things the characters did or said. Maybe if I was clearer about who the “our” was in the tit...

    I definitely had a hard time putting this one down. I planned to just get it started and ended up reading until the very early hours of the morning, only saving the last thirty pages because I was so exhausted. It's chock-full of characters a lot of people will have a hard time relating to or liking, but it's such an interesting story that it doesn't even matter. It's a bit of an odd book when it comes to how the story is told, entirely by the ma...

    Our Little Secret had me glued to the pages!! I read this within about a day. It’s fairly a short read with only having 228pages. Short chapters which always pleases me.The story begins with Angela, our main narrator, in an interrogation room. She is being questioned by Detective Novak for the disappearance of her ex boyfriend’s wife. Instead of answering questions directly, Angela decides to tell the story of a twisted love affair. She start...

    The first half of this story centres round two end of term parties: a high-school graduation party at a lake in Vermont and the next year at a May Ball in Oxford - surprisingly with three of the same characters present at both. You've read Dorothy Sayers' Gaudy Night, so you know at least vicariously that a May Ball is about as close to being in a fairy tale as you can come and still be more or less in real life. Unlike in Gaudy Night tho', in Ou...

    OMG this book is AMAZING. I read so many thrillers that it's rare for one to blow me away. Roz Nay's Our Little Secret did. And it wasn't so much a gripping, unputdownable page turner that sent my blood racing, but rather a slow burn build up of psychological darkness. What begins as a rather innocuous break up between high school sweethearts turns into a tale of psychological manipulation and potential murder. Nay's genius is in the subtlety of ...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.This is one of those rare thrillers that actually succeeds in telling a fast-paced, completely immersive and strongly manipulative story in the most concise and addictive way possible. I’d mention that I’m slightly exaggerating, but I’m really not. In under 230 pages, Roz Nay will initially make you feel things towards certain characters and later compel you to embrace polar opposite emotio...

    Our Little Secret by Roz Nay was not a hard book to completely become absorbed in. The narrative style, the content, the pace and the general menacing tone had me completely captivated from the first pages. I loved this novel. And, at 228 pages, it made the perfect binge read! The novel opens with a woman, Angela, sitting in an interrogation room. She is the suspect in a disappearance. Her ex-boyfriend’s wife has gone missing and all signs poin...

    Angela is accused of murder and is interrogated while at the police station. She tells her story to Detective Novak over a 2 day span. It’s pretty fast paced and I read it in a day. It hooked me from the beginning and I couldn’t wait to get to this very dark twisted first time novel for this author. I will be thinking about this one for days!!! I will be looking for more books by this author.

    Mesmerizing, dark, and brilliantly clever!This is a character-driven psychological thriller that illustrates just how fine the line between love and obsession can truly be and reminds us that every choice, good or bad, has a consequence.The writing is crisp, polished and fluid. The characterization is spot on with a multitude of characters that are multi-faceted, insecure and vulnerable. And the plot is an intricately interwoven tale that unravel...

    "Put a crowd of a hundred people in a room and wait. Eventually the psychopaths will emerge, and I'm telling you now, they won't be who you first suspected and there'll always be more than one."That quote illustrates the book. How far would you go to retrieve the true happiness that you once lost? To find a love so pure, a first love again? Are you willing to live in sadness until you find it? Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for an e-c...

    Do me a favor-- If you haven't already read the given synopsis for this book.. dont. Trust me..I did not 'refresh myself' with the synopsis before I started reading and going back now and reading it as I am writing this review... it reveals a few things that I think are better left unsaid, as it takes away from the authenticity of the emotions you experience while reading if you know them before hand.This is all you need to know going into this ...

    ALL THE STARS!!! I absolutely loved Our Little Secret, Roz Nay’s debut! The characterization was on point; each character was full of depth- I felt like I knew each one personally. Angela Petitjean (Peh-ti-shon) is being held on probable cause for the disappearance of a woman named, Saskia. After being held for hours in an interrogation room, Angela decides she will tell her story to Detective Novak, but ONLY if she can tell the story from the ...

    This was an okay psychological thriller, but not one of my favorites. Through the medium of a police interrogation, Angela takes us through the history of her relationship with her high school boyfriend, HP, and his now wife, Saskia, who is currently missing. The police suspect Angela in Saskia's disappearance, and Angela insists on starting her story at the beginning, so we go through her life as she meets HP, falls in love with him, and how eve...

    There are a lot of positive reviews on GoodReads; almost everyone has given this book a 4 or 5 star rating. After reading this novel, I'm confused: did I read a completely different book from everyone else? After seeing the positive reviews, I even read this book again and I still didn't get it. Anyways, here are my thoughts on this book:Angela's character and personality really did not work for me. I understand that not all characters are likeab...

    Super confused. I need to think on it before I put a review together.One thing is for sure: I flew through this book in less than 2 days. The pages go very quickly and you need to keep reading to figure out what the heck is going on!

    RATING: 4 STARS(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY)(Review Not on Blog)What happened to Saskia? This is the question that Detective Novak puts to Angela and Saskia's husband. Through Angela's story we go to when Angela meets Saskia to what happened to her. Angela claims she had nothing to do with it and it's up to Detective Novak to unravel all the secrets the three held tight to them.I wasn't really expecting to like this one as I disliked all...

Perhaps when two people join, it's inevitable, the things they'll damage in each other." ~Angela to Novak* Angela is being held for interrogation at the police station. Detective Novak wants only thing from her--to know where Saskia is. But Angela cannot comply; instead, she tells Detective Novak a story, one starting with he...

    Let me get the business out of the way before I forget...thank you St. Martin's Press for my #free copy of Our Little Secret. Alright, y'all sit down. We gotta chat. This book 😳. I hit a wall when I started this review. I am going to start with this. It was hands down a 5🌟 read for me. This was the most original thriller that I have ever read. The story starts with Angela in a police interview room. She is currently being interviewed for th...
