Review of This Secret Thing: A Novel

Amazing book alert!!

Marybeth Mayhew Whalen is one of my favourite authors so I was really looking forward to this book. I am happy to say this is another amazing book by this author. Her books are multilayered and always have engaging characters. In this book Norah has just been arrested for running a prostitution ring. Her 15 year old daughter is left stunned, betrayed, and without anyone to take care of her while her mom is in jail. Luckily her estranged Grandma arrives but she brings her own drama. The story evolves from here. There are some very intriguing subplots that are both endearing and heartbreaking. I like books with great character development along with a compelling plot and this definitely has those components. I loved this book from beginning to end! You need to put this one on your TBR!
