One Fatal Secret by Jane Isaac #BookReview #OneFatalSecret #PsychologicalThriller @JaneIsaacAuthor @canelo_co #onceuponatimebookreviews

Today I am reviewing One Fatal Secret by Jane Isaac, published by Canelo.


Nicole Jameson has always been proud of her husband, Ethan. He’s built a successful career in finance, and his employers, the Harrisons, treat them like family. They’re a firm who look after their own, and even gave a loan to the company chauffeur, Conrad, to fund his pilot licence.

When the two men are returning from a business trip, the worst possible thing happens – their plane crashes into the sea. No survivors are expected to be found. Nicole is heartbroken, much like Conrad’s wife, Ania. She never warmed to Nicole, but now they share a bond of grief.

When evidence is found that Conrad took drugs shortly before the plane departed with him at the controls, the two women begin to wonder if all is not what it seems. But when they ask questions about events leading up to the crash, unsettling occurrences suggest it wasn’t a good idea. Sinister-looking men follow them, the Harrisons are increasingly cagey, and the women wonder if there is not more to this than a tragic accident.

But are the most dangerous people the ones they have already allowed to get too close…?

“What if everything you thought to be true was a lie…”

For Nicole and Ania, losing their husbands in a plane crash couldn’t be more heartbreaking. When it is discovered that Ania’s husband and pilot Conrad had drugs in his system, she refuses to believe it. Convinced there is more to the crash, Nicole and Ania join forces and start digging for the truth. But the closer they get, the more they put their own lives in danger.

One Fatal Secret is a fast paced,riveting psychological thriller. You immediately become entangled in a web of secrets, lies and deceit. You don’t know who you can trust and there are plenty of twists and turns to throw you off the scent. Isaac does a great job of hoodwinking the reader and delivers quite the bombshell!

With each book release, Isaac sets the bar higher and higher. You can always guarantee you will get a compelling and engrossing plot, that is well written and has interesting characters. One Fatal Secret has all of this and more, making for a very addictive read.

Thank you to Jane Isaac, Canelo and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of One Fatal Secret, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, Foyles and BookBub if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.
