His Guilty Secret


His Guilty Secret by Helene Fermont

Secrets & Lies Are Dangerous.

When Jacques’s body is discovered in a hotel room his wife, Patricia, suspects he has been hiding something from her.

Why was he found naked and who is the woman that visited his grave on the day of the funeral? Significantly, who is the unnamed beneficiary Jacques left a large sum of money to in his will and what is the reason her best friend, also Jacques’s sister, Coco, refuses to tell her what he confided to her?

Struggling to find out the truth, Patricia visits Malmö where her twin sister Jasmine lives and is married to her ex boyfriend. But the sisters relationship is toxic and when a family member dies shortly after, an old secret is revealed that shines a light on an event that took place on their tenth birthday.

As one revelation after another is revealed, Patricia is yet to discover her husband’s biggest secret and what ultimately cost him his life.

His Guilty Secret is an unafraid examination of the tangled bonds between siblings, the lengths we go to in protecting our wrongdoings, and the enduring psychological effects this has on the innocent…and the not so innocent.

My Review

4 Stars

Patricia is shaken when her husband, Jacques is found dead in his hotel room in Paris. Sheis trying to work through his death but something doesn’t feel right to her and she starts asking questions. She eventually learns of Jacques mistress and other secrets. But she is not completely honest either and will have to face demons from her own past.

From the blurb I had an idea where this book was going with the mistress. I didn’t expect where the book really went. I was thinking this might be a murder mystery or such but it really isn’t. It’s more of a look at real life events and how things can affect us for years after the event. Secrets always have a way of coming out.

This is one of those books that makes you think about the little things we do every day. The little secrets we keep, the little things that we over look, and how our relationships are rather complicated. It’s a good read and one I recommend checking out.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Book on the Bright Side for the opportunity to read and share this book.
