The Secret Between Us by Barbara Delinksy is truthfully painful. A good novel but with so much guilt that you really start to feel like it's you in the story. It's a can't put down book til the end so that you can see if things come out for better or worse.

Deborah Monroe is mom, daughter, sister, ex-wife, and prominent town doctor to a quiet little town in New England. Highly respected and loved, independent, honest to a fault has her life upturned by one little incident. Oh, is it little or big

Thanks Misty, for a great buddy read! Misty and I tend to like books that make us a weeeee bit crazy and want to yell at the characters (see our last read, The Whole Golden World, for more on that)!!! They don't always do the smartest or most sensible things, these characters. And that's why we love 'em: for the fist-shaking-factor :) Deborah's Dad and her ex-husband were both deplorable, but it was Deborah herself that made me the craziest, because she put up with all their shenanigans and NEVE ...more

A pleasant surprise. It wasn't challenging reading, but a good story that kept my interest. Would be good for a vacation book or beach book. Similar to Piccoult's style - but much better character development.


I'm not done yet, but enjoying the book. It's easy reading. I got the book from the publisher as part of a buzz campaign through BuzzAgent.com I've been telling people that I know are interested in this genre of books about this book as well as the author. I thought at first that I would fi

I have to say I've read better books by Barbara Delinksy. For some reason, although this was a reasonably interesting story, if felt a little overwrought to me, particularly since it only covered a two week span of time. There was just something about going from extreme stress and panic to everything neatly tied up in such a tidy fashion - all in two weeks - that annoyed me. I'm not sorry I read it, but I have come to the conclusion that Delinsky's best work, like that of authors before her (Ste ...more

I found this story very weak and boring. Not worth my time writing a review from scratch, but here’s my response to the synopsis on goodreads… The normal text is what GR had to say and my responses are in bold:

Deborah Monroe and her daughter, Grace, are driving home from a party when their car hits a man running in the dark. Grace was at the wheel, but Deborah sends her home before the police arrive, determined to shoulder the blame for the accident. Her decision then turns into a deception that

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk ...more
