A Juicy Domestic Thriller: Read Our Review of One Last Secret by Adele Parks

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 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.

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.

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…

Sunday Times #1 bestselling author Adele Parks’ latest novel, One Last Secret, is a blisteringly provocative read about power, sex, money and revenge. This is Park’s twenty-second book in twenty-two years, and the prolific author shows no sign of slowing down. Her latest read is yet another cracking domestic drama that fans of her previous books, including Both of You, Lies Lies Lies and Just My Luck, will devour.

Dora is a compelling protagonist, whose first-person narration takes the reader right into her world as a high-end escort. As her backstory is slowly revealed through flashbacks, pieces of her intriguing puzzle start to make sense. She frequently addresses the reader, breaking the fourth wall and adding to the mystery. If there’s anything we’ve come to expect from a great Parks novel, it’s one, or more, big twists. While the French chateau location sounds heavenly at first glance, the secrets that are unveiled there reveal the sinister side to the lives of this wealthy cast of characters.

One Last Secret is a juicy, tantalising and pacey read that will appeal to fans of Sally Hepworth and other domestic dramas with strong female protagonists.
