The story opens with year-old Angela being questioned by the police over her role in the disappearance of the disappearance of Saskia, the wife of her best friend and former lover, HP.

Angela shares her version of events with Detective Novak, going back in time to when she was 15 years old and had just moved from Boston a tiny town in Vermont. At the time, she felt like an outsider until taken under the wing of fellow student and swim team captain, HP. She finds solace in his friendship, and eventually, their friendship transforms into love. However, young love can only last so long. Angela slowly reveals the story of their demise, coyly playing a cat and mouse game with Detective Novak.
Is HP not the innocent man that Angela paints him to be? I love a masterful, manipulative narrator, but something was missing for me. I got sick of all of Angela's telling and wanted more showing--I think that would have taken things to the next level for me. I would still recommend Our Little Secret if you are looking for a quick, entertaining psychological thriller. I will definitely be reading more by Roz Nay in the future!
