"A plot that keeps you guessing...an ominous trauma that can set your teeth on edge with the tension it creates...Spiro so viscerally renders Georgie's feeling of awkward adolescent alienation as she tries desperately to be part of the older crowd that you might cringe with memories of what that stage of life felt like." --Martha's Vineyard Times.
"The stage is thus very neatly set for a sweet, sun-drenched summer-on-the-Vineyard novel but Ms. Spiro has other, darker ideas in mind. The combined forces of lust, envy, conspiratorial scheming and townie resentment are churning just under the surface at all times, culminating in an incident at a lighthouse that will reverberate in the lives of both Lindsey and Georgie...There is personal and emotional wreckage between them that needs courage and self-honesty to clear away." --Vineyard Gazette
"From a fresh voice in fiction, this poignant and timely novel explores the strength and nuance of female friendship, the cost of ambition, and the courage it takes to speak the truth...unputdownable!" --Frolic
"All the more impressive when considering that Someone Else's Secret is the debut novel for author Julia Spiro, this deftly crafted and narrative-driven story of the challenging yet enduring friendship between two women is a thoroughly absorbing read. This is the kind of novel that will linger in the mind and memory of the reader long after it has been finished and set back upon the shelf." --Midwest Book Review
"Suspenseful and dishy, Someone Else's Secret exposes the dark underbelly of a moneyed summer town and the lengths one outsider will go to belong. Spiro brings Martha's Vineyard to life with delicious precision; I felt like I was there with my toes in the sand, a glass of rosé in my hand, and plenty of reasons to look over my shoulder. If the walls in these summer estates could talk, they would say, 'Trust no one.'" --Jessica Knoll, New York Times bestselling author of Luckiest Girl Alive
"Someone Else's Secret is a sandy, sun-soaked, character-driven exploration of what happens when there are no good options, when the truth turns out not to be enough, when following your heart proves impossible. It is a novel about being young and very young and then not so young after all and about finding the strength to fight for all those former selves." --Laurie Frankel, New York Times bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is
"Someone Else's Secret explores the realities of young love, coming-of-age, and the traumatic events women often face. Julia Spiro handles these difficult issues gracefully by pulling us into her fictional journey but also elevating the voices of women everywhere who are sure to recognize a part of themselves along the way." --Wendy Walker, national bestselling author of The Night Before
"In Someone Else's Secret, debut author Julia Spiro has crafted a timely exploration of the weight of secrets and what it takes to tell the truth. When an ambitious recent college graduate lands a 'cushy' job among the elite of Martha's Vineyard, she gets an unwelcome lesson on the dark side of power and privilege. A compelling and cautionary tale that pulses with authenticity." --Karen Dukess, author of The Last Book Party.
