The Family Secret by Tracy Buchanan

A gripping emotional page turner with a breathtaking twist


How far would you go to find the truth?

Since Amber lost her child ten years ago, her sole focus has been keeping her small business afloat. Her life seems to be on hold until the morning she finds a girl on the beach outside her gift shop. A girl who has no shoes, no name, and no idea where she came from.

As a wildlife documentary maker, Gwyneth’s work has taken her all over the world. When she has a terrible accident in the remote Scottish Highlands, she is saved by the McClusky family and taken into their home. But there is more to this family than meets the eye, and something from their past threatens to tear them apart.

Both Amber and Gwyneth are at the beginning of a journey that will unearth long-held family secrets, and has the power to change each of their lives forever…

MOMO’s REVIEW                   

Tracy Buchanan is a new author to me and I enjoyed this book and am thankful to NetGalley for introducing me to another wonderful author.

I found the book to be a real page turner which includes romance, adventure and an extra helping of intrigue.  The plot switches from past to present and the author gives us dilemmas which will have you thinking on what you would do in such a situation. The characters are deeply realistic and interesting.

Set during winter, fliting between Scotland and Iceland, is the perefect excuse to settle down, wrap up warm with a cosy blanket and a hot cuppa enjoy this perfect winter story.

Highly recommended read.

Hello! Fab to see you here. I live in Buckinghamshire, UK with my husband, my little girl and our (very naughty) puppy, Bronte.

I travelled extensively while working as a travel magazine editor, and have always been drawn to the sea after spending my childhood holidays on the south coast visiting family – a fascination that inspires my writing.

I now dedicate my time to writing and procrastinating on Facebook.

I’d love to hear from you so please come say hi on one of the following platforms… plus if you join The Reading Snug I’ve set up with fellow authors, Kelly Rimmer and Kerry Fisher, you might even bag yourself some freebies including an early copy of my latest novel, The Lost Sister!
