“I’m telling everyone about Best Kept Secret. It’s the realistic and ultimately hopeful story of Cadence, whose glass of wine at the end of the day becomes two…then…three…then a bottle. I love that Cadence feels so familiar, she could be my neighbor, my friend, or even my sister.” -- Jennifer Weiner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Amy Hatvany grabs you from page one and doesn't let you go. I was transfixed by Cadence and her heart-wrenching dilemma. The writing is visceral, the problems are real, and there are no clear solutions. You  won't want to put it down."  -- Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed and Heart of the Matter

“Best Kept Secret is touching, hopeful, and so real.  Amy Hatvany writes with depth and compassion about a secret many have kept as she offers the miracle chance of starting over . . . I loved these characters and this novel.” —Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Boat

“Rarely do I find a book that stays with me long after I’ve finished it, but this is one. The honest portrayal of the fallible but oh-so-human Cadence hit me straight in the gut. The writing is warm, witty, thoughtful and heartbreaking, and that ending—I’m still thinking about it” —Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, author of Sippy Cups Are Not For Chardonnay

 “Best Kept Secret is one of the most compelling books I've read in years. This could be any woman's secret - be it your sister, your best friend, or the mother you see on the playground. Amy Hatvany's heartfelt, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting novel will start an important dialogue about the secrets we keep... and it could even save lives.” ~ Sarah Pekkanen, author of Opposite of Me and Skipping a Beat

“Haunting, hopeful, and beautifully written, BEST KEPT SECRET takes a brave and honest look at the slippery slope of addiction and the strength it takes to recover. I couldn't put this book down, and I can't stop thinking about it.” ~ Allie Larkin, author of Stay

"A love letter to women everywhere, who try and sometimes fail, but who always get back up again. Inspirational and empowering." ~ Rachael Brownell, author of Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore

 “This gripping novel probes the darker sides of motherhood and family secrets, and proves that redemption is never out of our reach. A captivatingly honest book that you won’t soon forget.”  —Lisa Tucker, author of Once Upon a Day and The Promised World

“A testament to the power of a mother’s love. Hatvany goes places in this novel that other, less courageous, writers might fear to tread. And I suspect this story will resonate with more women, more mothers, than this author might ever know.”  —T. Greenwood, author of The Hungry Season and This Glittering World

"A gripping story of pain, love and renewal, one that leaves you cheering for the imperfect heroine who in some ways represents us all." ~ Kaira  Rouda, author of Here, Home, Hope.
