Every Single Secret: A Novel Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
“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.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I started listening with audio option, then chose to read at the end of the book.
The narrator was very good and kept my interest at the begining, but the story got very convoluted towards the middle.
New characters were introduced and decidedly wierd stuff happened, but it didn't seem to fit together well.
Just when you would expect the real action to begin, the narrative would switch back to the childhood traumas of both main characters.
I got kind of tired of their backstories and could have done with less sex scenes in the present time and more action to move the plot along.
The ending was the only part that was suspenseful, but by then, I just wanted to finish the book. (less)

Daphne accompanies Heath to a couples retreat for counselling before their marriage to sort out issues with his past which are causing aggressive nightmares, although Daphne declines to partake in the counselling as she has a few issues with her own past that she doesn’t want to come to light.
This is when it starts to become a bit unbelievable. There are supposedly three couple at the retreat, but they are forbidden from talking to the other two couples, they have to hand over their mobile phones and car keys and there are cameras monitoring them in their room. So why does Daphne not find it odd that Heath has so many sessions every day leaving no time for the other couples to be seen, why is a private door to the attic which houses the camera monitors always left open so she can creep up and watch them, and why when she has been told not to talk to the other couples does she follow one of the women and then promptly spill her life story.
None of the characters are particularly likeable, but then I don’t think they are intended to be, so I didn't really care what happened to them. Daphne is particularly annoying, always snooping around where she shouldn’t be and getting away with it but then not seeing what is patently obvious.
The book starts at the end and skips back and forth throughout, so you know things are not going to end well. The epilogue, which takes place eight months later, ties things up just too conveniently for me.
There were times where I felt events were too quickly thrown into the mix without a lead up to them being established. And I liked that the ending didn't feel rushed and was explained.
I enjoyed this immensely, the characters well drawn and little snippets of childhood slowly revealed through descriptions of the stages of Daphne's early childhood and after being taken into care, the children's home and the destructive influence of Chantel on the confused and hurt child Daphne.
I was not sure initially of how it would end and that after the revelation of the abuse and the depth of coldness in the actions by several of the characters and the consequences of this.
The biggest problem for me was the same story could have probably been told in 50 pages less than it was. Certainly worth a read though.
