Every Single Secret takes you on a journey into a dark, surreal world…A true psychological thriller that will leave you breathless.” —Wendy Walker, bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten and Emma in the Night

Emotionally guarded Daphne Amos always believed she’d found a kindred spirit in her fiancé, Heath. Both very private people, they’ve kept their pasts hidden from the world, and each other, until Heath’s escalating nightmares begin to put an undeniable strain on their relationship. Determined to give their impending marriage the best chance of succeeding, Heath insists that Daphne join him on a seven-day retreat with Dr. Matthew Cerny, a psychologist celebrated for getting to the root of repressed memories. Daphne reluctantly agrees—even though the past is the last place she wants to go.

The retreat’s isolated and forbidding location increases her unease, as do the doctor’s rules: they must relinquish their keys and phones, they’ll be monitored at all hours by hidden cameras, and they’re never to socialize with the other guests.

One sleepless night, Daphne decides to leave her room…and only then does she realize that the institute is not at all what it seems—and that whatever’s crying out from Heath’s past isn’t meant to be heard. It’s meant to be silenced.


My thoughts about Every Single Secret ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"There are monsters all around us—people who have to hide because the world can't bear to see them for who they truly are. They're good at keeping secrets, the monsters. Sometimes too good."

When I started Every Single Secret, I knew it would be a story about secrets, maybe lots of secrets, but I was not at all prepared for the depth of the secrets. Wow! For Daphne and Heath, they come to find out that that things are not always what they seem at Baskens.

Daphne is a woman to be admired, a strong person who defies authority to get at the truth. We know right from the get-go that she is running from someone, trying to escape something, but as we get deeper and deeper into the story, there are so many questions. Why are they really there? Where are all the other people who are supposed to be there with them? Who's all in on whatever is going on? What is going on? What's real? What's for show?

So many questions! I sped through the book as I needed answers just as much as Daphne did—what an intense ride! And I loved every minute of it! 

Congratulations Emily, 
on the release today of your fabulous book, 
Every Single Secret! 

Loved it!
