Secret Places by Vivian Kay deals with real issues of today that invades our lives and if we are not living according to god's words then we will definitely not prosper in our relationships. Moni and Sam's marriage is on the verge of divorce until he has a conversation with his best friend Debo who offers a alternative solution to regaining his once happy marriage back. Debo believes his life is all peachy perfect, but little does he know it is far from it. I enjoyed this book and the lessons I learned right along with the characters, you have to trust in God and let him lead your family and relationships. You cannot do bad and continue to think you will get away with it without any repercussions. I would recommend this book to others. This book was provided by the author for an honest review.

ecret Places – Vivian Kay 5 stars “For a marriage to truly work, it is God's will, not yours”. Moni and Sam is marriage is falling apart and they are trying a unconventional marriage intervention. But did it make it worse or what Debo and Adele are their friends that are living fairy tale marriage from the outside. But don't always judge the book by its cover. While reading this story, I was blessed. Mrs. Kay you really ministered to me. Thank you. Whenever I read a book I always try to find why the author named the title and boy this time I was wrong! This story had a lot of unexpected twist and turns. Nothing predictable about this story. I was hurt, disappointed, angry, shocked, and amazed with this story. In this book, I learned about some of the different cultures and traditions that I didn't know about that I want to learn about Nigerian culture and Canada's traditions. The characters were well developed and relateable. They brought the story alive. The story line was smooth and was very understandable. The author's writing style and grammar was on point. The theme of the book was denial, redemption, love, forgiveness, and ownership. Lot of cliques and Scriptures were used throughout the book that kept me on my toes. Like for example: The battle is not yours, it is the Lord's. The grass is not always greener on this side. Don't judge a book by its cover. If it is your will Lord, let it be done. All I can say is praise God for the blessings and praise Him. Thank you. This was my first book by this author and definitely will not be my last. Thanks for a great read.
