Lucy is the wrong side of thirty and tormented daily by the idyllic family pictures cluttering up her Facebook newsfeed. All of her friends seem to be getting married and having babies, and yet here she is, resolutely single, and no prospect of creating the perfect family she's always dreamt of.
But finding love is complicated, and as time passes she wonders if there might just be another way to make her dreams come true. Is she brave enough to go it alone, or is the fantasy of 'baby makes three' just too precious to give up on?

'The cover caught my eye straight away, I adored the freshness of it.
The story had me hooked from the very beginning, it had likeable characters and was such
an easy read full of secrets and intrigue.
Secrets We Keep is really well written and I really love the way Faith is such an accurate writer,
with a keen eye for detail.
This is a great book to curl up by the fireside with.'
