Running Secrets tells the story of Chris and Gemi and how they form a friendship that heals both of them. Chris is suffering from depression and tries to end her life. Gemi is hired to take care of Chris as she heals. I was pleasantly surprised with how well-written this book was. I loved learning about both Chris and Gemi, while very different each women was characterized wonderfully. Though I thought the book was primarily going to be about Chris and her healing from her past, I was glad to learn more about Gemi as well. I felt connected to both women and loved their characters. This book was about acceptance and more specifically self-acceptance.
The subject matter was heavy and dealt with a lot; I was nervous it would be too much for one book. However, the story was so well-written that it all flowed together and didn’t seem like too much was in the plot. Overall, it was an intriguing read that will stay with me for a while. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy!
I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.
