The Secretive Wife (More Than A Wife, #2) by Jennifer Peel

I have a famous secret, but it's not the biggest one I keep.

From an outside view, my life would be the definition of boring. I'm married to a landscaper, albeit a very attractive one, I drive an old cheap car, and I write articles for an online magazine. So, maybe I've been a constant fixture on the New York Times Best Sellers list for the last few years, but that secret is locked safely in my attic.

Here's a word of advice. If you want to keep a secret, don't tease your mother-in-law about what's in that attic, especially when her life goal is to save her son from you. Now that my famous secret is out, past acquaintances willing to do anything to get their own fifteen minutes of fame are lying to the media about me. But my biggest problem isn't the lies in the press, it's the truth I'm forced to face. The secret I've kept from everyone, even my husband, the man I love, the first person who made me feel like I belonged somewhere.

Now I have no other choice but to tell the truth and face my biggest fear, that Peter and I were never meant to be together and my secrets could take him away too.


Hang on to your heart with this one friends, because Jennifer Peel once again delivers an emotionally gripping story of love, loss and forgiveness that you will not be able to let go of.  I am, even days later, still fully entrenched in the world of Delany and Peter.

This story is told in the first person and Delany's whirling emotions became mine so quickly.  She is witty, smart and handles difficult situations with humor and (most of the time) grace.  I really love her.  And Peter?  Yeah.  He's a rock star right along with Delany.  

This story was like a roller coaster of emotions.  The highs are high, the lows are low.  By the end of the book your hair will be a mess, your eyes will be watering and your heart will be pounding but you'll want to go right back and start it all over again.  That's how I felt.   I love books that make me feel something, with characters that I cannot help but root for.  That's why I am such a fan of Jennifer Peel's books.  She always delivers this.  Always.

My best recommendation? Get this book.  Grab a fan and some tissues. You will need them both.

Content:  Some innuendo and talk of intimate relations between a married couple with no details but it is a married couple so you know that sexual relations are a part of their marriage.  Mild swearing.

- I received a complimentary copy of this book but I also bought my own copy.  All opinions expressed are my own.
