The Secret by Kevin Lynch @inkubatorbooks @ZooloosBT #BlogTour #TheSecret #PsychologicalThriller #NetGalley #KevinLynch #onceuponatimebookreviews

Today I am taking part in the blog tour and reviewing The Secret by Kevin Lynch, published by Inkubator Books.


Nicole feels like she’s finally in a good place. She’s a successful therapist in a loving relationship with her partner, Pablo. And she has a good relationship with her ex-husband with whom she shares custody of her beautiful son, Ben.

But life wasn’t always so sweet.

A couple of years ago, she was stalked by a troubled client, a hugely stressful experience, and one of the main reasons her short marriage ended.

Nicole picked herself up again, determined to put the past behind her.

But when she takes on a new client, inexplicable things start to happen. And soon it looks very much like someone is out to get her – again. At first, she wonders if she can really be going through this for a second time. Maybe, scarred by the trauma of the past, she’s just imagining it?

As events get ever stranger and more terrifying, she realizes the threat is very real and she needs to find out who is behind it.

But as Nicole draws closer to the truth, she realizes it’s more horrifying than anything she could ever have imagined. And she knows, if she is to survive, she must find the courage to uncover… The Secret.

Some people will do anything to keep a secret…”

The Secret follows Nicole, a therapist, who is still recovering from the trauma of being the victim of a stalker. When she takes on a new client, she is taken back to that dark time when strange things start to happen. Is history about to repeat itself?

A quick read, The Secret drips with tension and suspense and has you second guessing every thought you have as to how it is all going to unfold! Drawing from his profession as a guidance counsellor, Lynch has crafted a believable account that is well written, plotted and executed piece of work that all round is great reading experience.

Thank you to Kevin Lynch, Inkubator Books and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of The Secret, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
