***Beta read***
Whoa! I have to say, this book was a puller. From about 25% in, I was reading as fast as I could trying to figure out what was happening (in a good way!).
So many things I didn't see coming and I really think this is a great debut novel from Isabel.
*Will release a more detailed review when the book goes live :)

Rating 3.5 out of 5

The Secrets That We Keep is a book with a fantastic storyline. This is not just a romance novel. And it’s not just a mystery novel, either. Our lead ‘couple’ is already married and very happy and in love at the start of the story. The prologue had me immediately intrigued and desperate to know what secrets would be revealed. The story is fairly fast paced. Once Isabel achieved her momentum, it kept right on through until the end. My head was spinning at the twists and I was an

Where to begin with this story? It took me on such a rollercoaster. I think the title, "The Secrets We Keep" is such a perfect title for it because everyone in here keeps so many secrets. At the end of the day, despite it all, their still decent people. Plus I just love this author's writing style. And I'm ready for much more! I loved the whole vibe of mystery & suspense this story took me on. Was so intriguing trying to guess who did what, & who's lying on who, etc.. It was like tryin ...more

My rating for this is really 4.5 stars (damn you Goodreads for not having halfsies!). I normally don't tag anything as a "favorite" unless it's 5 stars, but this is a really good exception. The book is a standalone and from Annabella's point of view (even love the name). There's a lot of mystery around this story and it flat out kept me on the edge of my seat. The chemistry between Bella and her husband, Julian, is palpable. His sudden change in his behavior and not getting his point of view kep ...more

The first thing that caught my eyes was the cover. The second thing was the blurb. But what kept me glued to my kindle was the story itself.

We see from the very beginning that Julian and Annabella have a happy marriage, still in the honeymoon stage. I have to say, I was smitten with Julian from the very first scene, where he was sitting on a chair, outside on the back porch and smoking. This may put off some people, but not me. The way he was described made me melt in my seat.

But it's also clear

I receive this book as a gift and I like it . It was a fast read with mystery and secrets. Annabelle is marry to Julian but, she have's a secret that she wants to take to the grave. she believes that no one will ever find out not even her husband. Unfortunately, secrets never go alway, they only hide until revealed. Once revealed, you can only hope your life won't be completely ruin. If you want something to read than buy this book.

I was hooked by the first page and I really enjoy the writing style.

Half way through the book i was wondering where the story will take me. It made me second guess everyone and keeps me in suspense.

Once the secret was out I started to get annoyed with Anabelle and how the story goes. It just made me slightly lost interest. But other than that, I enjoyed reading this one and love both Lucas and Julian.

Great storyline. I loved the twists and turns. I wasn't sure where this was going, and loved being on the edge of my seat! Also, there's some hot scenes in there. Can't go wrong with suspense and sex!

This book was a pleasant surprise. It is a romance, thriller, mystery all rolled into one. Wow, the author did a great job.

Annabella has a secret that she will do anything to keep. Her husband, Julian is an FBI investigator, and she especially wants to keep the secret from him. Her family is dead and Julian is all that she has. They have a perfect relationship. Well,that is what we think. Julian is hiding somethings too. When things come to light, Annabella is unsure what to do. I do not want t

I could not put this book down - the suspense was killing me! Annabella and her gorgeous husband Julian seem to have the perfect life UNTIL some odd occurrences start happening! There are so many twists and turns and secrets - I would think I had it all figured out and then Wham - NO I didn't! Great character development and suspenseful build until all the secrets are revealed is just captivating!! It was romantic and fun and sexy and I cried a lot of tears! Amazing Epilogue!

I am not sure where to even start.
This type of book isn't my typical read, but the synopsis intrigued me, so I had to read it.
From the start I was pulled into this huge mystery as to what exactly this secret was. The way the book is written you wanted to know, you had to know what it was.
Everyone in the book was sneaky. I think that added to the mystery of what was going on. Lots of twists would spring up just when you thought you had the puzzle of the questions put together.
I enjoyed this book

*blissful sigh* This book was so thrilling. It killed me to not know what was going on and all the secrets and her hot hubby with their awesome marriage just slowly falling apart.

It was so engaging and I thoroughly enjoyed it. :0)

This book was a real page turner. There were so many twists in the story, the author really doesn't pave the way for you to guess what's coming. Every time I though something was going to happen, I was completely wrong. Loved the book from beginning to end its suspenseful, romantic, saucy and action packed.

First let me say I am glad I read this book however it left me wanting more. I feel the book has more potential that was actually given. I've read quite a few books but this one lacked. It did not flow well at all. The beginning was great, the ending was second best but the middle lacked in luster.
