My Darling Cecilia
If you’re reading this, then I’ve died . . .
Imagine your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret – something so terrible it would destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others too. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive . . .
Cecilia Fitzpatrick achieved it all – she’s an incredibly successful business woman, a pillar of her small community and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia – or each other – but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s devastating secret.
This book has been sitting on my shelf for quite a while. I won it in a giveaway and it has sat there since. This book is a little outside of what I would normally read. I see this as more of a grown ups book and deep down I’m still a teenage girl looking for the one. I have to say I did enjoy reading a book that was out of my comfort zone.
This book follows 3 women Rachel, Cecilia and Tess. I loved the way these three women who knew nothing about each other have their lives so intertwined in just a few weeks.
While I guessed the secret before it was revealed I didn’t guess how it was going to play out and I found this very interesting. Without giving too much away this story will keep you gripped to find out what happens once the secret is revealed and how the characters cope with the secret.
I have another book by Liane on my kindle which I am looking forward to reading. Liane’s writing has you gripped with fear and curiosity that will see you turning page after page.
