"Her Secret" is the exciting sequel to Kelly Florentia's "No Way Back", featuring the ill-fated in love Audrey Fox and although can quite easily be read as a standalone I'd still recommend you read the first to get better acquainted with the characters first.
Blurb - Audrey's perfect life starts to spiral out of control when she is entrusted with a secret that threatens trouble in paradise. There's no other choice but to lie to her new husband or risk hurting the people she loves. When an old fl

Audrey is now happily married after notorious Nick dumped her again, but I have to say I’m not a fan of her new husband, as he comes with more baggage than Heathrow airport!! Has she not heard the saying “marry in haste repent at leisure”.

This book is equally as good as the first book “ No Way Back” and was so addictive. As I was reading it, it was like a hand came out of the book and pulled me into the story as I felt like I was living the dilemmas that the characters were!!

Her Secret is a Sequel to No Way Back.
However it is the first book I have read in the series.
Although it's a Sequel, I didn't have too much trouble following the story as Kelly does give lil pieces of backstory as the story progressed.
But I do wish I had read No Way Back first as I do feel i missed out on character connection.

Her Secret is exactly that there are plenty of Secrets, lies, drama, it's enticing and drew me in from the start.

Unexpected, twisty, and clever!

Her Secret is an enticing tale that takes us into the life of Audrey Fox, a newlywed who’s happy, carefree marriage is about to take an unexpected turn when promises are made, secrets are kept, and lies are told.

The prose is smooth and intense. The characters are complex, secretive, witty, and loyal. And the well-crafted, multi-layered plot quickly unravels and intertwines to create a suspenseful, dramatic story about life, loss, love, marriage, family, romance, de

A good sequel to No Way Back read in February 2018. I was looking for the sequel immediately. Imagine my surprise when I found it by fluke the other day at a bargain price.

As in No Way Back, I liked Audrey and her friends. I wanted to find out how the semi-cliffie in NWB would play out. (view spoiler) I was satisfied with the resolution

Kelly Florentia is my favourite author.

If I tell you my secret and you tell me yours we mustn’t tell anyone. Is that being secretive keeping each other’s secrets or is it blackmail?

It seems like a bit of blackmail is going on all right in Her Secret. Audrey Fox knows a secret about her stepdaughter, Connie and Connie knows a secret about her stepmother. Will they both keep each other’s secrets?

There’s a very big secret that Audrey is keeping from her best friend.

I really enjoyed this book and all the way "HER Secret" was woven into this web of lies. So many secrets from so many women.
There were twists and turns and betrayals galore!
4.5 stars.

Thank you to #NetGalley, the author and publisher for my free copy in exchange for my honest review.
This book is currently released as of May.

Having enjoyed No Way back by Kelly Florentia I was super excited to find out there was going to be a sequel! The cover of Her Secret appealed to me straight away (who wouldn’t love a flash of red on the soles of their shoes?!) and perfectly conveyed the love of shoes by the fascinating heroine of these books, Audrey Fox.

When we last met Audrey she had finally tied the knot and married the man of her dreams but how is married life treating her?! Well, pretty good indeed until she learns somethin

I really enjoyed No Way Back and have been looking forward to the second part of Audrey Fox’s story.

I did struggle a bit to get into the book but that soon changed as I read through the chapters I got hooked and found myself getting immersed in the plot.

All the characters were going through their own issues secrets, friendships, relationships, trust, and lies!!

Once the plot heated up for me there were twists and turns which I didn’t expect. Although this is a fantastic stand alone novel I thin

Her Secret

An absolutely brilliant follow-up to No Way Back from Kelly Florentia. You could read this book independently of the earlier novel, but I’d definitely recommend reading them both, in order. Audrey Fox continues to be a highly sympathetic and complex central character. There’s a slightly more sinister edge to this novel than its forerunner, more than a touch of the thriller about it, which is balanced beautifully with the romantic and humorous aspects. Audrey is being followed, and her

Her Secret is the second instalment in the story of the fabulous Audrey Fox, and follow up to No Way Back (which I absolutely loved)! It was therefore with great excitement that I began to read Her Secret, and I'm so glad to say that it didn't disappoint. It's a fabulous breathtaking read. It can be read as a standalone novel, but to gain the absolute best of this book, I suggest that you read No Way Back, before embarking on this book.

Audrey back in all her splendor,

I loved No Way Back and this novel is another fabulous read. Now married, everything in the garden is not as rosy as Audrey would like.

A tale of love, relationships and everything family with the addition of secrets and lies this is a book that is just pure escapism

Fabulous characters, brilliant storytelling and of course it wouldn't be a Florentia novel without the mystery and suspense, this book is highly recommended.

Don't tell me off, but I have to be honest here and say that I STILL haven't had chance to read the prequel to this novel, 'No Way Back'. I know, I know - I will. Thankfully though, I found that 'Her Secret' was okay to read as a standalone if you're happy enough going through the story without too much of a background. Kelly Florentia does bring her readers up to date in the sequel briefly, but I don't think it would d

Audrey is now happily married to Daniel and her life is well and truly on track, she is happier than ever until a family member entrusts her with a secret, a secret that she can't tell Daniel and so she has to lie to him... how much strain will this put on her marriage and happiness

A good story and great to be back to follow on and catch up with all the characters from No way back....although not totally necessary you are much better off read this one first

Her Secret by author Kelly Florentia left me with mixed feelings about the main character. I enjoyed the book, but I did find that when the main character constantly refers to status symbol shoes, is she being witty or just silly? Audrey Fox seems to be either naive or indecisive in keeping or releasing many of the secrets and/or maybe a bit of both. The main theme of the story is secrets, lies, and deception. If someone tells you a is just that...A Secret, and Not Yours to Tell, Righ ...more

I was so excited when I saw there was a sequel to No Way Back and what a thrilling adventure it is.

Moving on from the turmoil of the past year, Audrey is now married to Daniel and trying to get her life back on track. On the surface, everything seems to be going well. She has a full life with plenty of eclectic family and friends, as well as a husband who adores her. However, as things progress, some things just don't seem to add up.

Her Secret, Kelly Florentia

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre: Romance, women's fiction.

Well, usual pet hate- Women's fiction – why? Why not general fiction – men read romance too!

Anyway, book one left me with mixed feelings, many because I hadn't realised it was a two part read until the end. I wasn't keen on any of the characters either, they had odd reactions to events IMO.
I still find that in book two, that they react strangely. For instance – and this isn't from the book but mor

Her Secret is a bit of a misnomer inasmuch as it should perhaps be Her Secrets, or Their Secrets of even How Many Secrets? But where would a novelist be without them? Although this is a sequel it didn’t seem to matter that I had not read the first novel. Well perhaps a bit because at the beginning I was trying to track all the names but quickly settled down as they all took up their own identities and positions in the plot. As for the genre – well that is more like a romantic thriller, or romant ...more

Her Secret begins where No Way Back ends with Audrey Fox dating Daniel whom she met while recouping after her fiancé Nick walked away from her. Audrey hadn’t planned on jumping into another relationship nor planned on getting married so soon, yet here she was planning a wedding after dating Daniel a couple months.

This isn't normally a genre I would read but I actually really enjoyed this series.

If you thought the last book was dramatic then you are in for a treat with this one. It is non stop drama with all the twists and turns. I honestly didn't know who to believe and I had no guesses as to what was going to happen. Towards the end, I started questioning her husbands behaviour but the ending was definitely a shock.

Had really been looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed. Although this is a follow up to No Way Back it can be read as a stand alone.

We catch up with Audrey Fox and family friends, newly married and then someone asks her to keep a secret, a secret which affects a lot of people and then more secrets emerge. So many twists and turns, even right up to the last few pages.

I stayed up to 2:05am to finish this book and was well worth the lack of sleep.

Highly recommended

I had been eagerly waiting for this book since I read No way back last year.
What a funny, entertaining, gripping story it is! I love Kelly Florentia's style and she went beyond any expectations with the twists and turns throughout the whole book, with an intriguing and unxpected ending that kept me in suspense until the very last page.
So very well done, again!

I received an ARC copy by Netgalley for an honest opinion.

I never read the first book of this series, but I assume you can read as a stand alone.. you just won't have all the details.

I gave this three stars as I honestly did not connect to any of the characters. The book description sounded pretty tense and would keep my interest. There were lengthy conversations between characters where my mind started to wonder to other things going on in my life. Don't get me wrong it's a very wonderful thr
