Guest Review: Secret for a Song by S.K. Falls

Erin is another avid reader that will be sharing her reviews on Heather's Book Chatter. She has helped me tremendously to catch up on my TBR list since my workload has doubled this summer. Thanks Erin!

Goodreads Summary:

Saylor Grayson makes herself sick. Literally.

She ate her first needle when she was seven. Now, at nineteen, she’s been kicked out of college for poisoning herself with laxatives. The shrinks call it Munchausen Syndrome. All Saylor knows is that when she’s ill, her normally distant mother pays attention and the doctors and nurses make her feel special.

Then she meets Drew Dean, the leader of a local support group for those with terminal diseases. When he mistakes her for a new member, Saylor knows she should correct him. But she can’t bring herself to, not after she’s welcomed into a new circle of friends. Friends who, like Drew, all have illnesses ready to claim their independence or their lives.

For the first time, Saylor finds out what it feels like to be in love, to have friends who genuinely care about her. But secrets have a way of revealing themselves. What will happen when Saylor’s is out?

Publication Date: May 31, 2013

Erin's Review:

Saylor Grayson came from a monetarily rich family, but they lacked the love and emotional support most people need. The need for attention forced Saylor to hurt herself. Having a diagnosis of Munchausen Syndrome was the only life Saylor had known; until she meets and falls in love with Drew. Unlike Saylor, Drew is truly sick, and dying. Drew assumed Saylor was fatally ill and she allowed him to believe it. The lies or the inability to tell the whole truth ruined the only love Saylor had ever known.

This book was well written and had me wanting to read every minute of the day. There was chemistry between Saylor and her new ‘friends’ that we all long for. The heartbreak kept bringing this love story back into the ‘real word’.

SPOILER ALERT Out of 5 stars, I would rate this book at 4 stars simply because I was hoping for a little more closure with the end; whether it be death or relapse, I guess I found myself needing a little more. END OF SPOILER

Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this novel for review!
