Today I’m sharing with you the latest book from author Hélene Fermont’s called His Guilty Secret as part of a blog tour. published through Fridhem Publishing last month, this book tells the story of a group of women who are affected by one man’s lies and betrayal.
His Guilty Secret introduces us to Jacques Beaumont. His wife, Patricia believes that she’s happily married to the Air France employee and that one day they will have a family to complete them When Jacques dies suddenly in a hotel room she starts to question everything she’s ever known about her husband, their life together, her family and friends.
Little does she know that she will soon discover that His Guilty Secret included a French mistress, Isabelle with whom he’s been involved with for years. But there’s more to his deceit tp be discovered.
As the story unfolds so does the sub plot of the relationship between Patricia and her twin sister Jasmine who lives in Malmo with her husband, who also happens to be an ex of Patricia’s. Jasmine has estranged herself from her twin based up an overheard conversation from their childhood. She’s on a self destruct mission, but is everything she believed to be true, in fact, not true at all.
In France, Isabelle has always known about Jacques’s wife, but she has her own secrets. She’s married to a wealthy but ruthless man, Armand, and has always led him to believe that he was Pierre’s father.
We also meet Jacques’s sister Coco who has lived with the knowledge of His Guilty Secret and it’s led her down a path of addiction and unhappiness.
As each woman tries to rebuild their lives, the truth must come out, and relationships are made, broken and rekindled as the pages are turned. Although there is much sadness through the book, there’s also hope and strength, as these women move forward into a happier future.
