    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...

    A captivating and addictive mystery with a coming of age story at its heart. I absolutely loved the structure of the narrative in this one - we have Angela who is being questioned by the police, and the story unfolds as she reveals her history to the detective. I thought this was super creative and really kept the pace moving for me. There are some characters here who are a hot, hot mess which are sometimes my favorite to read about! - - What mak...

    4 bewitching stars to Our Little Secret! 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 Our Little Secret drew me into its pages from the start. Angela is interrogated by the police because her ex’s wife is missing. She hasn’t seen this ex for years, so why is she being dragged into this? Is Angela telling the truth to Detective Novak, or is she yet another unreliable, manipulative narrator? Our Little Secret is a slim novel and quite the page-turner. Once I started re...

    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...

    Why This Book I was either approached by the publisher or received the book, Our Little Secret written by Roz Nay in 2018, through NetGalley. I liked the premise of the story and saw it was getting positive reviews, so I took it on. It was published this week, which meant I needed to read and review it to share my feedback with others. I would give the book 3.5 stars and encourage fans of thrillers and questionable narrators to give it a chance....

    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...

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...

    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...

    This book begins with Angela being interrogated at the police station in the disappearance of Saskia who happens to be her ex-boyfriends wife. From here she tells Detective Novak a tale of love, obsession, and ultimately revenge. This is Angela's spotlight and it's time to set the record straight. Angela had all the characteristics of an unreliable narrator that I look for and reading her story had me absolutely glued to the pages. I loved the wa...

    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...

    HA! A "deliciously dark conclusion" indeed!OUR LITTLE SECRET is a story about a close friendship that grows into love....with a dark kicker. There's a missing person, some strange personal and family relationships that surface, AND a big mystery to solve leaving the reader to question who and what to believe....or it did me.The whole novel takes place within a 24 hour time span while the beautiful and quiet spoken Angela gives testimony in a poli...

    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...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ “You can’t get in trouble for thinking things. Because if you could, wouldn’t everyone in the world be in jail?” I knew NOTHING about this book before requesting it from the library other than the title. That was enough for me. It popped up on the “recommended to you” front page of the website and I assumed it would be some sort of mystery/psychological thriller since it di...

    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...

    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 ...

    4 StarsWhat a fun twisty little 4 Star thriller! I loved reading it!SUMMARYAngela Petitjean aka "Little John" or "LJ," finds herself in a police station answering questions when Saskia, the wife of her childhood best friend HP, goes missing. The majority of the book is Angela recounting the long, complicated relationship between herself and HP in a police interview. Their story begins when Angela moved to Cove, NH in 10th grade and recounts the e...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

While being questioned with respect to her potential involvement in the disappearance of Saskia, the wife of Angela’s first crush and adolescent boyfriend, Angela divulges into ten-years of history between herself and HP in a read between the lines, scratch your head kind of tale.
