Want to Know a Secret Moorcroft

When Diane Jenner is told about the accident in which her husband has been seriously injured, she thinks ‘car’. Learning he was actually in a helicopter at the time is only the first of a series of surprises she is about to receive: a family, a second home, a loaded bank balance…and there’s more. As Gareth recovers and the story unfolds, we see Diane growing in strength and gradually taking control of her life – a life very different from the one she had been living.

But, as with all Choc Lit books,  we also see life from a male perspective, through the eyes of her newly-discovered brother-in-law James. Occasionally we look through the eyes of James’ troubled daughter Tamzin, whom Diane befriends. A great mix of viewpoints that sit together well but also show different aspects of the same series of events.

I read this book in less than twenty-four hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. Moorcroft develops her characters very well and always has a twist up her sleeve when the plot starts to follow a well-worn path. Even the last few pages held one more unexpected situation – and the closing lines are inspired.
