Secrets and Lies by Louise Ashton – Book Spotlight


Amy went to the drawer and reached in and took out a photo album. She proceeded to open it and took out a photo. Tears welled up in her eyes. She then put the photo back in the photo album, and put it back in the drawer. Amy then, went back to the laptop and, with hands shaking, began to reply to the message.

Amy and Oliver have a fractured relationship.

They both have secrets, and don’t like having to lie. Are their secrets bad?

Will any of their secrets come out of the woodwork? If so, will the secrets ruin their relationship?


“Don’t you walk out on me!” Amy screamed at Oliver.

Oliver turned round and faced Amy.

“Why not? What excuse have you got this time, so that you can make me stay and talk?”, Oliver replied, with a quizzical look in his eyes.

“Really? Oliver, you have done things that have betrayed me!”, Amy began to say.

“Seriously, I don’t think so!” Oliver replied.

“Don’t lie! What about Mary?”, Amy shouted back.

“What about her? I told you that she and I had a year-long relationship after we broke up the first time round”, Oliver explained.

“What? So you think there’s nothing more to add about your relationship with Mary?”, Amy asked Oliver.

“I can’t talk about her now!” Oliver replied and turned back round to face the front door and opened it.

“What the hell is wrong with you, Oliver! Why can’t you be honest with me and tell me about your flesh and blood! Your own children!” Amy blurted out, as she couldn’t take the lies any more.

Oliver froze for a split second, and then closed the front door. Oliver turned himself back around and faced Amy again.

    Hi Reeca! This book isn’t for me. When a book has a “blah” cover and the teaser is just too “loud” for me, I have a preconceived notion I won’t like it. I may be missing out on a great story, but I’d have a hard time getting over my first thoughts.
