Angela is being held in a police interview room. Her ex’s wife has gone missing and Detective Novak is sure Angela knows something, despite her claim that she’s not involved. At Novak’s prodding, Angela tells a story going back 10 years, explaining how she met and fell in love with her high school friend HP. But as her past unfolds, she reveals a disconcerting love triangle and a dark, tangled web of betrayals that leave Novak puzzled. Is Angela a scorned ex-lover with criminal intent? Who is she protecting?

For fans of Ruth Ware’s In a Dark, Dark Wood and Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train, Our Little Secret is an intense cat-and-mouse game and a riveting story about the lies we tell ourselves and others. They say you never forget your first love. What they don’t say though, is that sometimes your first love refuses to forget you…
