One Last Secret is a compelling thriller with a great main character.
As an escort, Dora has rules in place to keep her safe. However, after one traumatizing encounter, Dora agrees to marry her best friend and leave escorting behind. That is until a client offers her double the going rate to pretend to be his girlfriend in the south of France. Even though she’s looking at a future of financial security, Dora is not quite ready to lose her independence, so she accepts this as her last job.
What could go wrong? Well, a lot, it seems. Almost as soon as she arrives.
Review of One Last Secret
This page-turner mainly follows Dora’s pov and alternates timelines.
This was my first time reading an Adele Parks book, and it did not disappoint. Dora’s character was so well done and had me rooting for her the entire time.
I saw the big reveal coming a mile away, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment. It is slightly OTT, which I know some readers don’t like, but it worked fine for me.
Usually, when I’m reading a book, I am very conscious of what page I’m on and how many pages are left to go in the chapter or the book. But this one captured my complete attention.
I will definitely try this author again in the future.
My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Expected Publication: 27 December 2022
