“Women need to be ruthlessly selfish.”

Woman with a SecretGo and get this book! Woman with a Secret by Sophie Hannah is well worth the read. This is a police detective thriller. Each chapter reveals more to the mystery and you have no clue where you are going to end up.

Nicki Clements is a stay at home mom of two kids in Spilling, England. She is bored and unappreciated and her childhood habit of lying is really starting to cause some trouble for her. As much as she loves her husband and children, she can’t help herself from getting into trouble.

“Breaking other people’s rules might be commendably independent minded, but breaking your own, which you made willingly to protect yourself and your family? What kind of fool does that?”

I love Nicki’s honesty, especially when it comes to her family.

“Women need to be ruthlessly selfish. You know why? Because men are, and so are children. Both will turn you into their slave unless you give back as good as you get on the selfish front.”

“What are we supposed to do when the world requires us to be a particular way and we can’t manage it?”

Nicki is only part of this story. The other characters come together effortlessly to create a thickening plot of danger, secrets, and romance. You’ll be guessing at the ending until the very last chapter.
