The Secrets We Keep

$10.00 $32.99
Author: Colette Caddle

Format: Paperback / softback

Number of Pages: 528


This is the stunning new novel from the Number 1 bestselling Irish author. Everybody has a secret...Erin Joyce fled Dublin two years ago for the hills and lakes and winding country lanes of Dunbarra. Here she bought a rambling stone guesthouse and began to rebuild her life. In the beautiful grounds she grows vegetables, which she supplies to local restaurateurs including best friend Marguerite. Her kind-heart and generous, no-frills hospitality have attracted a strangle little herd of permanent guests: from waifish Hazel and her adorable but silent daughter Gracie, to the brash American, Sandra, and stoical old PJ. She has even started up a new relationship with local farmer Mark. But Erin's fragile happiness is thrown off-balance by the unexpected arrival of Marguerite's brother: A-list Hollywood actor, Sebastian Grey. Sebastian has suffered a nervous breakdown, and so when Marguerite asks Erin to put him up, how can she refuse? Recalling an arrogant, loathsome charmer, Erin finds him utterly changed. Gone is the swagger; replaced by an emaciated, shy-seeming shell, whose haunted eyes follow the other guests from an emotional remove. Erin finds herself increasingly drawn to this handsome stranger, and wonders what trauma could possibly have brought about this devastating change? Sebastian is not the only one keeping secrets. Even as we find ourselves drawn into the local life of Dunbarra, we start to realise its charming backdrop masks some dark, disarming truths. No-one is quite what they seem. What was Erin running away from in Dublin? And what happened to make little Gracie mute? Everyone is running from a past. The question is: just how long can they go before their lies start to catch them up?

    Wondering about what happened to our previous Free Shipping policy? Our reasons for making this change can be found here

    Change of Mind - Remainder Marks

    Generally we do not accept returns due to a change of mind. 

    Our books are remainders which means that they occasionally have a texta mark at the base of the book.  This is one reason our prices are so low.  Unfortunately we cannot accept returns for books that are marked in this way. 

    Change of Mind - Mystery Boxes

    We do not generally provide a change-of-mind refund simply because a Mystery Box contains books you are not interested in.  Any refunds we may give will be on a discretionary basis and will depend on the box being shipped back to us. You would be required to pay return shipping for your box.

    Mystery Box - Important to Read:  We do our best to ensure that our Mystery Boxes contain books selected from a wide range of categories.  (Aside from specific Mystery Boxes such as YA Mystery, of course).  As such, you're almost certainly not going to love all the books.  However, they are about $3 each, so can be re-gifted, used for craft, used to bulk out your collection, saved for a hobby you don't yet have... it's up to you!

    We will, however, provide you with a refund for any duplicates of the same title in a Mystery (or any) Box.  Please send a photograph with your email.  The refund is calculated as a proportion of the number of books in the box. 

    If you are concerned you might not like the books in a Mystery Box, we strongly encourage you to try one of our category boxes instead - which have the full book list published in the description.  

    Damaged or incorrect orders 

    If you have received items that are damaged or incorrect please contact us at help@bookgrocer.com. If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted. 

    Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right.

    Exceptions / non-returnable items

    Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards. 

    Refunds

    We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
