Welcome to the neighborhood. Watch your husband, watch your friends, and watch your back.
Cat Winthorpe has worked hard to get what she has: a gorgeous home; social standing; and William, her successful, handsome husband. Then a friendly new couple moves into the estate next door. While cautious, a good neighbor like Cat greets them with open arms and warm hospitality.
Neena Ryder isn’t a fellow lady of leisure. A life coach with off-the-rack dresses, personal issues, and a husband who hasn’t delivered, she’s anxious to move up in the world. This beautiful new town is a step in the right direction. It’s also making Neena aware of what she doesn’t have. Namely, William. When Neena’s infatuation escalates into obsession, it’s just a matter of eliminating a few obstacles to get the life she wants. The life next door.
As Neena’s secret fixation grows, so does her friendship with Cat. But beneath their cordial interactions is a wealth of temptations, secrets, and toxic jealousy. For both women, the desire for a perfect life can turn perfectly dangerous.
Not many books leave me speechless and fulfilled at the same time, but Every Last Secret did. It’s conniving. It pisses you off, but it’s like a train wreck. You can’t look away or, in this case, put your kindle down. When I say it pissed me off, I was extremely upset.
I hate Neena. Hate. Her. I don’t think she has one redeemable quality. Zero. She has a great husband who worships her feet, and she treats him like he is mud on her shoe. She’s as fake as they come, and I was hoping she would die the whole time I was reading.
Now Cat. I love Cat. I tell ya something, that woman is a smiling, snarky genius. She and Matt are the only redeemable characters in this whole book. Cat was the reason I kept reading, well, also to see if Neena was going to die. Lol
Every Last Secret is one hell of a ride. It pissed me off, made me laugh, and pissed me off even more. But the emotions it brought out of me were genuine, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. The ending was perfect and tidied up. There was no guessing or left up to your imagination with this book.
Alessandra covered it in a pretty red ribbon. Everything on the outside was beautiful, but once you opened it up, she tore your heart out with her perfect smile. Never to be the same again.
