“…this is my favorite Sarah Morgan book to date.”
~ Under the Covers

I was very excited to read this book because I’ve enjoyed Sarah Morgan’s romances in the past and I really was in the mood for a good women’s fiction novel this summer.  I’m happy to report this was exactly what I was looking for!  I often feel like romance authors let the romance writing side overpower their womens’ fiction novels.  This was not the case here.

HOW TO KEEP A SECRET is told in multiple POV and unravels many secrets that have been kept hidden by three generations of women in the Stewart family.  They each carry them as their own personal burden and they don’t realize how they can affect others.  Or maybe they do, and that’s exactly what makes them keep things hidden.  But one event slowly starts a chain that unravels everything.

This is the perfect beach family drama for this summer.  I couldn’t get enough of it.  I’ll admit it starts out quite slow for my taste so it took me a little while to get into it.  But once things get going, I was glued to it.  I came to care for all the characters and really wanted them to have a happy ending.  And rest assured, there is one.  This is not a tear jerker.

I can honestly say this is my favorite Sarah Morgan book to date.  The voice is different here and I was able to connect more.  I really hope we get to see more stories like this from her in the future.  And if you are looking for the perfect beach read this year, be sure to add this to your list.

About Sarah Morgan

USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan writes hot, happy, contemporary romance, and her trademark humor and sensuality have gained her fans across the globe. Described as “a magician with words” by RT Book Reviews, she has sold more than eleven million copies of her books. She was nominated three years in succession for the prestigious RITA® Award from the Romance Writers of America and won the award three times: once in 2012 for Doukakis’s Apprentice, in 2013 for A Night of No Return and in 2017 for Miracle on 5th Avenue. She also won the RT Reviewers’ Choice Award in 2012 and has made numerous appearances in their Top Pick slot. As a child, Sarah dreamed of being a writer, and although she took a few interesting detours along the way, she is now living that dream. Sarah lives near London, England, with her husband and children, and when she isn’t reading or writing, she loves being outdoors, preferably on vacation, so she can forget the house needs tidying.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
