The Secrets she Keeps- Michael Robotham

This book is a great read! It follows two characters leading two very different lives- one of which seems to take too much of an interest in the other character through a voyeuristic perspective. Agatha and Meghan both live in a ritzy London suburb- but Agatha is pregnant and works part-time stocking shelves at a grocery store and Meghan has an elegant lifestyle that appears to be perfect as Agatha watches her from a far.

When Agatha learns that Meghan is pregnant again, and that their due dates fall within the same month, she finally musters up the courage to speak to her, thrilled that they now have the ordeal of childbearing in common. Little does Meghan know that the mundane exchange she has with a grocery store employee during a hurried afternoon shopping trip is about to change the course of her not-so-perfect life forever…

I love the back and forth writing style that the author uses, each chapter shifts back and forth between the two main characters of the book- which allows the reader to be able to see the story unfold from each character’s perspective!

The story really builds and definitely does not disappoint! Although, I was surprised in a way how the big conclusion played out (don’t want to spoil), it almost seemed too simple. Would’ve loved for the ending exchange to be a bit more dramatic. Overall, really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it!
