About this deal

No more needs to be said on the plot as it’s better going in blind but my heart was racing for Dora and the life and death situation she gets herself into. While the life of an escort may not sound appealing, it has it's definite perks with the right client base.

Book review: One Last Secret by Adele Parks - Debbish

It is fast paced with lots of twists and turns, a well written book I definitely felt Dora’s pain the tragic circumstance that threw her life into a free fall, I definitely felt her pain and could sympathize with her character. But last third changed my mind: at least so many of my questions answered even though they were far fetched explanations! Dora has her new fiancé and the life she now wants to live in her sights, but she will need to cast this aside for her getaway with Daniel. Dora is reluctant to take his advice, which she’s heard many times before, until Evan, who has long been in love with Dora, proposes.

Smart, stunning and discreet, Dora is used to being whatever men want her to be and this trip will be all about putting on a front for one last time.

One Last Secret by Adele Parks: A tension-packed plot – book

Dora finds herself face-to-face with a man she has never forgotten, the one man who really knows her. She has just one more, strictly secret, assignment for her regular client Daniel… posing as his girlfriend for a few days at a luxurious chateau in the south of France. I found myself a little confused at one point, but I quickly set myself straight and I just couldn't wait to get to the end to find out what would happen. She was not ashamed of what she did and always stood up for the fact that it is just her job, it doesn't make her less or dirty.Once she joins Daniel on his trip, she becomes an ingénue style of character, which really doesn’t fit with her previous persona. Dora and fiancé cover up murder and/or self-defense homicide by burning down mansion which was also fiancé’s family summer home. On the plus side, Daniel’s inexplicable and superficial nature is explained toward the end of the text. She finds herself face-to-face with a man she has never forgotten, the one man who really knows her.

I think it was the way the story was told, Dora is an unflinchingly honest narrator and at times it read like she was confessing her sins. Or a ‘hooker’ or ‘whore’ - words that are littered throughout the text���not sure that was necessary. Although being rich has never really mattered to Dora, being valued does and in Evan, she has found someone she loves and trusts and she accepts his proposal. When she arrives at the chateau she finds herself face to face with a man she has never forgotten, the one man who really knows her. Contradictions are part of humans but couldn’t explain how a woman who rejects to terminate her pregnancy then let her child go to her mother.Evan does demand she quit her job, however, worried there could be another incident like the one she just lived through. Once they arrive at the chateau in the south of France, things start to happen and Dora realizes that she needs to leave as soon as she can. Dora can’t resist taking one last job - escorting a regular to a French château and pretending to be his girlfriend.
