I couldn't put it down!" - Graeme Simsion on LITTLE SECRETS"LITTLE SECRETS explores the desperation that can live inside us-and what happens when individuals have opposing but equally desperate desires. Readers will grow to care about the fates of ambitious Rose and nurturing Mia, as well as the policemen working the case. In addition, readers will thirst to uncover who's responsible for stirring up the community and heinously stealing the life of a child. Despair makes for shocking choices, and no one makes it to the other side of this mystery unchanged." -Bookpage"A riveting thriller with a dark mystery that is utterly compelling right through to the last page." -BetterReading.com"Snoekstra's excellent debut stands out in the crowded psychological suspense field with smart, subtle red herrings and plenty of dark and violent secrets. Recommend to genre aficionados and readers who enjoyed Lisa Lutz's The Passenger." -Library Journal (starred review) on ONLY DAUGHTER"Unreliable narrator thrillers are practically a subgenre of their own, and there are two unreliable narrators here as well as a wickedly twisted and fast-paced plot that leaves numerous questions unanswered... readers who enjoy a creepy thriller that will keep them guessing will be unable to put this down." -Booklist (starred review) on ONLY DAUGHTER"In Anna Snoekstra's dark and edgy debut, a young woman slips easily into the life of a girl missing eleven years, only to discover the grisly truth behind the disappearance.
