A decade later Colby and Caitlin have moved to the suburbs with their adopted son Benjamin. They live in a beautiful house in a nice neighbourhood. Colby's income allows Caitlin to be a full time home-maker. Yet within this veneer of the "perfect" suburban life exist some serious cracks that come to light all too horribly when a house fire finds Caitlin outside their home screaming for Benjamin while the neighbours gossip about just what going on in the Colberts home.
Caroline Overington once again takes a complex topic at large and brings it to light. In Can You Keep A Secret the reader comes to grips with the less heard of realities of international adoption as well as the complex forces that bring and keep some couples together.
Can You Keep A Secret is indeed a story about secrets and not good ones. The suspense is well paced throughout and certainly keeps you guessing right until the conclusion reveals the final stunning twist.
