secrets in the skyI received a review copy


How far should you go to keep a secret?
No-one ever accused Sophie Campbell of being a coward. From caving trips to rooftop pranks, it appeared nothing could hold her back, especially once she landed a dream job promising travel all over the world.

But Sophie’s jet-setting lifestyle is not what it seems and she’s been spending more time in the quiet English village of Saffron Sweeting than she cares to admit. When her beloved Great Aunt Wol dies suddenly, Sophie loses one of the few people who truly know her. As friends, family and an old flame gather for the funeral, questions soon follow. Worse, Sophie finds herself increasingly attracted to the man most likely to expose her secrets. Can she manage to guard her past, yet finally follow her long-held dream?

Featuring both new and familiar characters, this stand-alone romantic comedy is set two years before Kindle best-seller Saving Saffron Sweeting. With side helpings of British tea, cake and wit, Secrets in the Sky explores how finding the courage to be yourself can be the toughest challenge of all.


I have also reading Saving Saffron Sweeting, and this novel is set two years prior to that, and can be read as a stand alone. I fell in love with the quaint village of Saffron Sweeting in the first book, and was truly delighted to read another with the same setting. Sophie’s story was a lot of fun to read about. She is holding back a huge secret from nearly everyone in her life, but after the death of her aunt and the events that occur after the funeral, Sophie’s secret – or secrets – are on the verge of becoming public knowledge. I enjoyed this read because it was women’s fiction, a little chick, had funny moments, but there was also an underlying mystery throughout. Very engaging, and I’ll hope you read both fun novels from Pauline Wiles!
