My Recommendation

This was a typical mystery whodunnit with a murder that opens up the story, but there were a few things that prevented me from being satisfied once I hit the last page:

1. There were soooo many unrealistic things. The main aspect that stood out is that the premise is about three couples who vacation together at a rental for one week. Throughout the book, you find out that these six people are linked together in some surprising, scandalous ways (no spoilers here). It makes absolutely no sense that these individuals would agree to be secluded for one week together with everything they knew.

2. One of the more minor cases that was introduced at the beginning didn't really have a lot of resolution. It left me surprised why the author had even included it.

3. The book's title doesn't make sense since there were like 500 different secrets and none of them little.

4. There were a few details that got no further explanation (including lines of dialogue that I thought would make sense later that didn't).

I'm still giving this three stars because I didn't completely guess all of the twists or the ending, but it's definitely not a book I would recommend as a good mystery.
