About The Book

Holly Mayhew has the perfect family set-up. But when her seven-year-old daughter, Marley, begins to act strangely, refusing to speak and rushing off to hide in her room, she knows something isn’t right.
Desperate to understand why Marley has become so withdrawn, Holly creates a worry box, where Marley posts her thoughts each day.
At first, the messages seem innocent. But when Holly finds a note saying secrets make me sad, she begins to question everyone entrusted with her care…
Including her family.
Once the truth is out… there’s no going back.


My Thoughts

I loved this book; it surprised me, how can secrets change a person and the way they act. I think this is a twisted and very well plotted book, some surprises are waiting for you!
This book is told between two different lines; the present and 7 days before, where Holly Mayhew is feeling that her daughter is hiding something from her. What could it be? Simply children’s imagination or something more dark?
Holly’s life has never been easy, she has a hole in her heart and always her family tried to keep her safe; some secrets and white lies that thought make her life easier. Now, everything will go out, and her life will change forever, for good or for bad? You’ll have to read the book if you want to know more!
I really couldn’t stop reading this book, how the author, Samantha King, created this psychological thriller, making you distrust of anyone in the story. Fearing for Holly and her daughter’s life all the time, and this is what moves the book; the pain, the fear and the doubt that everyone around them could be dangerous.
This is not the first book I’ve read lately about how secrets can be like an illness, it weights you down until the truth comes out or you die with it…
Believe me, if you are looking for an addictive and twisted read, this is amazing, believe me!
Are you ready for “The Secret Keeper’s Daughter”?


About The Author

Samantha King writes psychological suspense novels and lives in west London with her husband and two young children.
As an English graduate and lifelong bookworm, becoming an author was always Samantha’s dream. This passion for storytelling led her first to a career in publishing, managing a commercial fiction imprint for a global publisher. After fifteen years, she abandoned office life in favour of working from home as a freelance editor for various publishers and literary agents.
Samantha has always loved books that explore the hidden depths of the heart and mind, and she decided to satisfy her growing interest in human psychology by qualifying as a psychotherapist. This deepened her fascination with the hopes and fears that make people tick, which again reawakened her writing ambitions. Working around – and inspired by – a busy family life, she finally sat down and wrote her debut novel, THE PERFECT FAMILY.
Samantha writes in a hut at the end of her garden with a very affectionate Cavachon dog for company.
