Secrets in the Sky 

by Pauline Wiles

My Review 4 Stars! 

The book starts with Sophie being shocked with news of an inheritance from her Great Aunt while she is still struggling to cope with losing her. Sophie turned to her Aunt during a time of struggle and was able to keep many secrets from her mother; that is until her Aunt passed and everything seems to blow up in her face. But that's the thing about secrets, there is really no peace to be had as long you are always trying to cover your tracks. 

This is a truth Sophie finds out the hard way. Secrets in the Sky is Sophie's story of grief, growth and love. All great lessons to be learned. Sophie's story has a depth to it that many don't link with Chick Lit, I marvel at that because my favorite books in this genre generally come with a bit of depth, as well as the fun humor that can be found in most Chick Lit's. 

This was a great read, with a wonderful lesson behind it and a fantastic love story to round it all out. I look forward to discovering more from this author! 


No-one ever accused Sophie Campbell of being a coward. From caving trips to rooftop pranks, it appeared nothing could hold her back, especially once she landed a dream job promising travel all over the world.

But Sophie’s jet-setting lifestyle is not what it seems and she’s been spending more time in the quiet English village of Saffron Sweeting than she cares to admit. When her beloved Great Aunt Wol dies suddenly, Sophie loses one of the few people who truly know her. As friends, family and an old flame gather for the funeral, questions soon follow. Worse, Sophie finds herself increasingly attracted to the man most likely to expose her secrets. Can she manage to guard her past, yet finally follow her long-held dream?

Featuring both new and familiar characters, this stand-alone romantic comedy is set two years before Kindle best-seller Saving Saffron Sweeting. With side helpings of British tea, cake and wit, Secrets in the Sky explores how finding the courage to be yourself can be the toughest challenge of all.
