Book Review – This Secret We’re Keeping by Rebecca Done…

A pupil and a teacher. Is it ever right to break the rules?  
Jessica Hart has never forgotten Matthew Landley. After all, he was her first love when she was fifteen years old. But he was also her school maths teacher, and their forbidden affair ended in scandal with his arrest and imprisonment. Now, seventeen years later, Matthew returns to Norfolk, with a new identity and a long-term girlfriend and a young daughter, who know nothing of what happened before. 
Yet when he runs into Jessica, neither of them can ignore the emotional ties that bind them together. With so many secrets to keep hidden, how long can Jessica and Matthew avoid the dark mistakes of their past imploding in the present?  
I was given an ARC by Netgalley in exchange for a fair an honest review.
This book deals with a very taboo subject and it does it in a very detailed and understanding way. I was a little unsure at the start of this book, but by the end , I was absolutely captivated. Well worth a look.
A four out of five star read.
I am profoundly grateful to Netgalley and Penguin UK for my copy.
