    1. Whatand absolute crazy ride. This pulled me in and spat me out. I was so engrossed I didn't realize the clock ticking away and nothing was getting done at home.This story had me literally sunk right into its pages.There is nothing more thrilling than me to find a story of a child missing or kidnapped or whatever in a story because I justknowthere are going to be all kinds of emotions coming to the fore, not only for the characters but forme tooand this surely happened whilst reading this.The twi [...]


    2. I had not heard of Ava McCarthy before picking up this book but I will definitely keep my eye out for more of her work, as a first time author she has done an excellent job with this story.Jodie is a very tormented soul and living every mother's nightmare, her husband Ethan has killed her 3 year old daughter after she stated she intended to leave him and his abuse. Ethan is a narcissistic and truly evil person, Jodie makes a decision to take his life and then her own. Jodie's courage will be par [...]



    3. Reviewed on snazzybooks Dead Secret by Ava McCarthy combines suspense, mystery and action to create a really great debut novel. I was so impressed at Ava McCarthy’s writing throughout this novel; although I don’t have children myself the writing made me put myself in her shoes and imagine what she must be feeling. Jodie’s desperation at times was really powerful and I truly hated her husband the more I read about how he treated her. McCarthy portrayed this behaviour in what I imagine is a [...]


    4. Abby, her three year old daughter is dead. Jodie wants to end her life but she has one more thing she has to do: kill the person responsible for her daughter`s death, her husband Ethan. She succeeds but she`s still alive and now in jail. While in prison, she discovers that Ethan had a lot of secrets and Jodie will try discover who her husband really was.Jodie is a great character. In the beginning she was weak because she had nothing to live for but then she became this strong heroine who you ha [...]


    5. I already knew this author from her previous work with the hugely successful Henrietta 'Harry' Martinez series. It has been a while since those three books were released so I was keen to read this latest offering, Dead Secret, promoted as a standalone pyschological thriller.It is as good as those other novels currently around in this genre that deal with when relationships go sour. The tagline here is "How well do you know your husband". The premise being that Ethan, Jodie's 'perfect' husband is [...]


    6. This was the first book I had read by this author and it certainly won't be the last! It was a fabulous fast paced novel with a killer plot that came as a real surprise to me and that doesn't happen often.Jodie feels like life shouldn't go on after the loss of her 3 year old daughter so plans to kill her controlling husband and then herself. Her suicide fails though and she finds herself in prison for her husband's murder. After a couple of years a journalist contacts her-with information that m [...]


    7. Thank you to Netgalley for an ARC copy of this book in return for an honest review.Ethan, Jodie and little Abby an apparently typical family but behind closed doors all is not as it seems.Ethan is a top lawyer, suave and good looking but also controlling and manipulative. Their marriage is breaking down, Jodie wants a divorce but when Ethan finds out her plans he murders their little girl. No longer able to carry on and with seemingly no other option she takes a gun and goes after the man she on [...]


    8. This is one of the most distinguished mystery thrillers I read. The book starts with the very deep and profound grief of Jodie, the wife of a very self-centered controlling husband Ethan. She is in such a disturbed state that nothing matters to her anymore. Having lost all that matters to her, she is focused on one thing – REVENGE – and she is determined to do it now taking her own life too as a finale for that sad revenge.Now, things don’t quite go as planned and Jodie has to face the aft [...]


    9. Dead SecretThank you to Netgalley and HarperCollins Uk for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Wow!!I finished this book very fast, I couldn't put it down. I read while cooking, cleaning, ironing!! I have never read anything by this author before but this won't be the last book I read of hers. Dead Secret tells the story of Jodie, a young woman who decides to take the ultimate revenge on her torturous husband, after she discovers that he is responsible for the death of their daughter. As Jo [...]


    10. This is the first book I have read by Eva McCarthy, but it certainly won’t be my last! Dead secrets is one of those books that pulls you in from the opening chapter. It’s dark and so very twisted! Jodie has nothing to live for, her daughter has been murdered by her husband, and she has only one wish, to kill her husband Ethan, and then herself. When Horrifying secrets emerge regarding Ethan, Jodie’s strength is pushed to the limits, like any good plot there are many twist and turns along t [...]


    11. A thriller which unravels into something truly remarkable. The twists were unbelievable. This book ended up flooring me (metaphorically, of course).


    12. Some characters are truly evil but McCarthy takes it to a totally new levelI absolutely love Ava McCarthy’s novels; when it comes to crime thrillers she really delivers and this is no exception.The book opens with Jodie McCall loading her husband Ethan’s gun, prior to shooting him in the head, after which she plans to kill herself. The scene is set with Jodie going to intercept her husband at the 4th July fireworks and her interactions as she encounters neighbours are not friendly; people ar [...]


    13. When I begun Dead Secret, I hadn’t paid too much attention to the blurb, which I was really grateful for when reading this as I think it really added to the mysterious and thrilling nature of the novel – I really had no idea what to expect or what was coming! I was literally on the edge of my seat reading this novel and managed to plough through it in just a couple of hours.I really warmed to the main character and I was so hoping she hadn’t committed the crime she supposedly had. I really [...]


    14. Wow! Ava McCarthy really knows how to keep a reader in suspense! Dead Secret begins with Jodie deciding she's going to kill her controlling husband, Ethan, then kill herself. She has nothing left to live for as Ethan killed their 3 year old daughter - his way of punishing her for threatening to leave him. He could have killed her, but he knows that taking away her daughter is the most effective way of making her suffer for the rest of her life.I immediately sympathised with Jodie. As a mother I [...]


    15. Dead Secret is one of those books that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and drags you along for the ride. Jodie is an artist and housewife. When she threatens to leave her psychologically abusive husband Ethan he murders their daughter just to punish her. Shaken by the realisation that she really had married a monster, Jodie kills him. Convicted of murder she is two years into her prison sentence when she is contacted by a reporter who wants to talk to her about her husband, about her crime. [...]


    16. Thank you to Netgalley for an ARC of Dead Secret.Following the death of her 3 year old daughter, Jodie has nothing left to lose or to live for, other than to kill the man she holds responsible for her death, her "perfect" husband Ethan.I don't want to go into the plot of the book as there are so many twists and turns and shocks that I wouldn't want to give anything away.I read this book in less than a day - I couldn't put it down. It is a taut roller coaster of a ride! You feel Jodie's pain as s [...]


    17. Jodie plans to kill her husband and then kill herself. She feels she has nothing left to live for. Her 3 year old daughter has died probably at the hands of husband Ethan who is cruel and controlling man. Her plan doesn't succeed and she finds herself in prison instead. What follows next is one twist and turn after another. This is a cleverly written story with no wasted pages of narrative. You really feel that every word matters. The characters are well written and unusual. I really enjoyed thi [...]


    18. I was lucky to get an ARC of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.Jodie really wanted to kill her husband and then kill herself and she thought she had it planned so well but not everything goes to plan, She was married to Ethan who was sytematically undermining her and after the death of their daughter Abby who Ethan admitted killing, she felt she had nothing to lose. It seems Ethan has yet more secrets to reveal and it sets Jodie on a roller coaster path that she can't seem to stop, o [...]


    19. After the death of Jodie's three-year-old daughter Abby, she has nothing to live for. She had been fighting her husband Ethan for so long. Fighting for freedom. Freedom to work and be independent, freedom for Abby to make friends outside the house, freedom for herself to do the same, freedom to sell her paintings. And more recently, the freedom to leave. There was nothing left for Jodie to fight for now that Abby was dead. If it wasn't for Ethan three-year-old Abby would be still be alive. Jodie [...]


    20. Thank you to Netgalley for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.When Jodie plans to leave her controlling husband Ethan, he exacts the ultimate revenge by killing their 3 year old daughter. Jodie, feeling life is not worth living without her daughter, vows to kill him then kill herself.However, all is not as it seems and the resulting story is a rollercoaster of cat and mouse chases, family secrets, lies, abuse, retribution and revenge. There are many twists and turns and quite a [...]


    21. Wow!!!! This is the first book that I've read by Ava McCarthy, and definitely not the last. It was a roller coaster of a read that completely had me enthralled with it. The characters are strong, well written and believable. I was thrown head first into the story and shocked with astonishment by the end. I did not see that massive twist coming at all!I would like to thank the author, her publishers and Net Galley for letting me read "Dead Secret". It was an intricately woven book that I absolute [...]


    22. Many thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins for the opportunity to read and review this fab bookThis was my first Ava McCarthy novel but it certainly won't be my last. I loved her writing style, the build up of the characters, the dizzying plot and pace of this story. Dead Secret is a fabulously tense book which kept me turning the pages even though it was, in parts, uncomfortable to read. It was clever, well constructed and the ending was a total stomach churning surprise, which doesn't often h [...]


    23. I was engrossed from the beginning i loved everything about this book, it was well written, loved the characters, and great great story line. There was plenty to keep me riveted. When i thought i had it figured out there there was another twist. Cant wait to read the next book


    24. Dead secret by ava mccarthy. Two quick shots. One for him.

And that’s to kill the man she holds responsible for her daughter’s death – her seemingly perfect husband, Ethan.But Ethan is hiding more than just his true nature.

    25. Nejde o úplne priemernú knihu, autorka má však nešťastie v šťastí, kedy som jej knihu čítala v období vydania nového Nesba. Hoci je každá kniha trošku iný žáner, pri hodnotení knihy ako celku kopú každý za inú ligu. Téma rodinných patálií, vraždy člena rodiny a z toho vyplývajúcich problémov sa určite nedá považovať za originálne spracovanú. Postavy sú len načrtnuté, autorka pri nich nejde vôbec do hĺbky, aj keď je otázne, nakoľko sa to na takom mal [...]


    26. Po ťažkom detstve a živote v pestúnskej rodine si Jodie myslela, že konečne našla svoje šťastie v manželstve s Ethanom, navonok dokonalým mužom. Majú dcérku Abby, ktorú nadovšetko zbožňuje. Ethan sa však časom stáva tyranom, zo všetkých síl sa snaží dcéru Abby poštvať proti jej matke. Jodie pri ňom stráca všetku svoju slobodu.

    27. Reviewed on: thequietknitterIn Part 1 of this book Jodie has lost everything that ever mattered to her, her daughter, her will to go on, and her love for her husband. Now she plans to break free from it all, she's loaded a gun and plans to shoot her husband Ethan and then herself.To the casual observer, Ethan is a suave, sophisticated lawyer, but to those that know him like Jodie, he's a clever tyrant, a cruel manipulator and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. So when Jodie asks for a di [...]


    28. Wow. This book literally knocked my socks right off and chased then round the room a couple of times for good measure!I thought I was clever guessing what I thought was the twist and, although I had indeed worked that out nicely, I was completely under prepared for what happened next.I loved this book right from the first chapter. It was nearly time for bed and I had just finished and logged my previous read and thought that I'd just choose and queue up my next. I chose this and loaded it onto m [...]


    29. My book blog: publishedmomentsJodie only needed to fire two bullets. One for her and one for her husband, Ethan. She had nothing to live for any more since the death of her little girl, Abby. A death at the hands of her husbandmething which she cannot physically prove to the authorities, but something Ethan has admitted to her - he is what psychologists call a 'family annihilator' but Jodie isn't convinced that he fits the full profile.When Jodie has the courage to shoot Ethan, she is unsure of [...]
