In this sinister tale from 4 million copy bestselling author Mark Edwards, a deadly secret turns a couple’s new romance into a nightmare. And they’re not the only ones who know the truth…

After twenty years apart, Matthew and Helena have rekindled their college romance and are away in Iceland on their first holiday together. Swept up in the romance on a mountain hike, one moment they are taking the perfect photo, the next Helena is hanging from the cliff edge…

Terrified, Matthew almost misses Helena’s sudden and shocking confession—but what he hears chills him to the bone. And when Helena reveals the full truth Matthew is horrified, not only by what she’s done, but why she did it. Does he really know her at all?

His shock turns to horror when, back in England, they discover that someone not only overheard Helena’s confession but plans to blackmail her. Now Matthew must decide whether to go to the police or help Helena keep her secret—and as events spiral out of control, how far is Matthew willing to go to protect his ‘perfect’ girlfriend?

Review by Stacey

Keep Her Secret by Mark Edwards is a twisty, heart-pounding thriller that keeps on giving the more you read. Numerous times I thought there can’t be more to this story and then boom, another twist is thrown in.

The book started quite slowly with Helena and Matthew on holiday in Iceland after dating for just a few weeks, although they have previously been romantically linked together and have known each other for years. During a hike Helena is trying to get the perfect shot of the scenery when she falls, luckily her old rucksack saves her, but not before she blurts out about how this is deserved and how she will meet ‘him’ in hell, leaving Matthew puzzled.

The plot is told in three parts and the story has you trying to work out if everything you are told is the truth or a lie and if everyone you meet is the real deal or fake. The book certainly plays games with your head, a psychological thriller at its best.

My only concern is that there may be too many twists and that some of them are a little out there and made me think this wouldn’t happen in the real world. I also wanted the falling scene to last a little longer to give the sense of real danger.

Overall, Keep Her Secret was an intriguing, entertaining, page-turner of a read that kept me engaged the whole way through. I do wonder with the epilogue if there will be a sequel too.
