One Last Secret By Adele Parks
‘Sunday Times’ best-selling author, Adele Parks is back with a new book called ‘One Last Secret’
A week at a beautiful chateau in the south of France – it should be a straightforward final job for Dora. She’s a smart, stunning and discreet escort and Daniel has paid for her services before. This time, all she has to do is to convince the assembled guests that she is his girlfriend. Dora is used to playing roles and being whatever men want her to be. It’s all about putting on a front. One last chance. It will be a last, luxurious look at how the other half lives, before Dora turns her back on the escort world and all its dangers. She has found someone she loves and trusts. With him, she can escape the life she’s trapped in. But when Dora arrives at the chateau it quickly becomes obvious that nothing is what it seems…
One last secret. Dora finds herself face-to-face with a man she has never forgotten, the one man who really knows her. And as old secrets surface, it becomes terrifyingly apparent that one last secret could cost Dora her life…
It’s publication day for Adele’s latest book and it’s another gripping thriller with a fantastic protagonist.
Becoming an escort wasn’t Dora’s first career choice but it was a way of making a regular income. But when a client decides to take it one step too far in a vicious attack, with the encouragement from her best friend Evan, Dora decides to give it all up. Dora decides to do one last job, which leaves her in terrible danger.
I’m a huge fan of Adele’s, even before when she wrote female fiction, her books were something that I gobbled up greedily and this latest book was racing thriller that pulled me in.
I always worry that when reviewing Adele’s books that I’ll give something away because in her books, things are never what they seem. And this latest book is exactly that. Dora is a great character, she’s sassy and enjoys the lavish lifestyle that being an escort provides. She’s quick and a chameleon with having to adapt to different characters and personalities. And it’s interesting to see her so confident and assertive suddenly seem unsure in her new settings, surrounded by people that seem very suspicious.
Unsettling, deeply dark and wonderfully escaping ‘One Last Secret’ is another glorious book by delivered Adele, that’s fast paced and riddled with suspense.
You can buy ‘One Last Secret’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
