Previously published as Mums@Home,

 

Four very different people meet online through What Mums Know, a new website for mums. But none of them is quite who they seem. Little do they realise that when they start to share relationship and parenting secrets, their lives will never be the same again. Caroline is finding it difficult to trust her husband Roger. Can a marriage really survive an affair? Then a chance meeting makes her wonder if it's time for a fresh start....Susan is struggling to bring up her disabled daughter Tabitha on her own, and dreams of a better life for them both. But just when it seems things can't get any worse, a knock at the door changes everything.Mark is learning how to be a single dad while his wife Hilary is away. But as he wrestles with the secrets he is keeping from his family, he's blissfully unaware of the secrets they're keeping from him.Lisa is looking forward to the birth of her child. Will a new baby help her get over the past? Whatever that is...

 

Sometimes you have to keep a secret from the one you love - and sometimes you have to keep the one you love a secret.

Have you ever read a book that even though you've enjoyed it, it made no sense? That's how I'm feeling right now after finishing 'Love is a secret'.

 

It follows a group of parents who start using a website called What Mums Know. This is a website set up to help mums discuss their issues and help each other through them. A few of these parents meet each other accidentally outside the chat room and we follow these certain people in their day to day lives. These are Caroline a part-time working mum of 3 who's trying to come to terms with her husbands infidelity. Mark a working dad of 2 who's acting as a woman to gain information on how to raise his children after his wife is sent to prison for theft. Susan a single mum of 12 year Tabitha who has cerebral palsy and lastly Lisa a young nursery assistant who's obsessed with pregnancy after 2 miscarriages.

 

Don't get me wrong each individual part and story are great and it's an interesting read in parts, it just seemed a bit to long and a bit to what's the point after a while. I feel bad saying that though because I actually enjoyed it too, but I can only be honest can't I? I think this is one for you all to read and see whether you agree with me or not.

 

worth a read.
