You shared a secret with the wrong person.
Janey Markham is thrilled to be moving with her family to Buckingham Crescent, the smartest address in a desirable suburban town.
Worried she’ll be excluded by the glossy local mothers, Janey is thrilled when she meets Tanya, the kind of woman she has always looked up to. Tanya takes Janey under her wing, and her teenage daughter Angel is amazing with Janey’s little boy. As Janey and Tanya grow closer, Janey feels she can finally leave her troubled past behind.
But then everything changes…
K. L. Slater is one of my auto-request/purchase authors. I don’t even have to read the blurbs, I just grab each of her books that I come across. Little Whispers is her latest title. Whilst not one of my favorites, it was still a good read.
This suburbian mystery centers around Janey, a new resident in an affluent neighborhood. As soon as Janey moved into the neighborhood, I knew something was bound to go wrong although I couldn’t guess exactly what. I was wary of the cliquey mom group that she joined and silently screamed at her not to trust them but of course, she didn’t listen to me.
The secrets held my attention from the first to the last page. I couldn’t guess what Janey was hiding from her past. Italicized chapters mixed in with the main story had me scratching my head. In the end, the revealed secrets didn’t really wow me and actually had me puzzled about why it was such a huge deal for the MC. Maybe it is just me though. I might have been expecting something more especially after the buildup thus the reason I was underwhelmed.
Would I recommend this one? Most definitely! I didn’t love it like I thought I would but I certainly liked it. I can’t wait to see what else the author comes up with.
