Review: No Safe Secret

No Safe Secret No Safe Secret by Fern Michaels
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is my first Fern Michaels book, as she is mostly a romance writer, which is not a genre I read. So when I saw this book was tagged only as fiction, I thought it would be a good read as she is a very popular writer.

Maddy Carmichael is about to graduate high school. On the night of her prom, terrible things happen to her, and she flees her small Florida hometown.
She manages to get to Boston, changes her name and builds a new life for herself. she even marries a good looking, rich dentist, who also happens to be a terrible abuser.

The books takes us back and forth from when Maddie leaves Florida to Boston, 20 years before, to her actual life, which is not much better than it was before, even if she has money, a big house and a lovely daughter.

When somebody makes an anonymous call telling her he knows what happened on the night of her prom, she decides to go back to Florida and find out for herself the consequences of what happened that night.

The book is very fast paced, I couldn't wait to see how the plot developed, but (and a very big but!!!) I never really knew what happened on that fateful night, and the end develops in the last 10 pages or so. I felt as if I had missed something, as the tension built during the whole book and then it ended so fast.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
