Nicki Clements has secrets that she shares with no one. Well, maybe one! Someone she has discovered on a website. Someone whose voice she has never heard. Someone she communicates with for up to two years.

After living with her secrets as well as the website man she has never met or talked to or made a cup of tea for, she is arrested for murder! How can she convince the police she didn't kill a man she doesn't even know? Must she tell them about her website man?

A man and wife detective team investigate her, right down to her very own website. Can she convince them they are wrong without having to give up her secret communications with her other life? How would her husband and two children take the news?

This is a great start to a suspenseful novel. But I had difficulty with Woman with a Secret. I lost track of who was who. The characters seemed to trade their names back and forth, to the point that I was never sure who was saying what, or what their motivations were. The longer I read the more confused I became. Maybe it was my age taking over. But I can't truly say I enjoyed a book that others seem to be raving about.
