#BlogTour #Extract ~ His Guilty Secret by @helenefermont @BookPublicistUK #Giveaway #HisGuiltySecret

Secrets & Lies Are Dangerous.

When Jacques’s body is discovered in a hotel room his wife, Patricia, suspects he has been hiding something from her.

Why was he found naked and who is the woman that visited his grave on the day of the funeral? Significantly, who is the unnamed beneficiary Jacques left a large sum of money to in his will and what is the reason her best friend, also Jacques’s sister, Coco, refuses to tell her what he confided to her?

Struggling to find out the truth, Patricia visits Malmö where her twin sister Jasmine lives and is married to her ex boyfriend. But the sisters relationship is toxic and when a family member dies shortly after, an old secret is revealed that shines a light on an event that took place on their tenth birthday.

As one revelation after another is revealed, Patricia is yet to discover her husband’s biggest secret and what ultimately cost him his life.

His Guilty Secret is an unafraid examination of the tangled bonds between siblings, the lengths we go to in protecting our wrongdoings, and the enduring psychological effects this has on the innocent…and the not so innocent.

About the Author

Hélene Fermont was born in Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city and beautiful cultural hub where she enjoyed an idyllic childhood, surrounded by beaches, parks and commons. Her parental home was filled with music and literature and she started to write short stories which she entered into competitions at eight years old. Writing is her passion.

She moved to London in the mid-90s and the city has been home for more than 20 years. Malmö is her native city and she regularly spends part of the year there surrounded by the beautiful landscape and tranquillity which inspires her writing.

Her debut novel Because of You was published in August 2016. The novel is inspired by visits to London during the 80s. The eclectic club scene was something that she was too young to appreciate fully at the time but it is emblematic of an exciting era that is now gone forever.

Her second novel – We Never Said Goodbye – was published on the 6th April 2017 and the third – His Guilty Secret – will be available via Fridhem Publishing from 27th November 2017.

“With pleasure. I wish you a great day and look forward to seeing you tomorrow.” Tom was almost out of the door when the man stepped over to him and gave him a £50 note.
“You must treat yourself and your girlfriend to something nice, Tom, perhaps a movie and bottle of wine? It’s wonderful to see you again.”
“But it’s too much…I can’t accept it,” Tom said, only too pleased to be of service to them without the generous tip.
“We insist, you must take it or we’ll be upset,” the woman said, smiling at him.
The young porter beamed, bowed and reminded them he would return in the morning with their breakfast, before wishing them all the best and closing the door behind him.
Alone at long last, the man’s eyes lingered on the woman seated on the bed. “Je t’aime…you will never know how much I love you.
Promise me one thing: when it’s time to leave, you must start to look forward to our next meeting.” His voice was hoarse with emotion.
“I can’t! My heart breaks each time we say goodbye. Why can’t we be together all the time?”
“You know the answer. I can’t leave her…Patricia loves and relies on me, just like I do with her. You and I made a pact that we’d
never leave our marriages no matter how hard it is for us to be apart.
What’s changed since then?” He sounded as sad as they both felt.
“I don’t love him anymore, I don’t think I ever did…not after I met you. I’m only with him for one reason, as you know.”

The woman burst into tears and lay down on the bed, covering her face with her hands. She’d agonised over whether to put an end
to their relationship but it was too painful to imagine he would not continue to be a part of her life. They were soul mates, regardless of the others who shared their lives.
“You are the love of my life. I’m lost without you,” she cried, feeling his arms around her as they lay together, gazing into each other’s eyes.
“I feel the same about you…And her. Patricia is my wife. I’d never have asked her to marry me if I didn’t love her.” Imagining her eagerness to see him after weeks apart, he felt the same turmoil as if he’d betrayed her trust. But the woman he was with meant just as
much to him. And he knew he would never be able to choose one over the other. “We’ve got too much to lose. I hate to see you so
upset, have you told him how you feel?”
Whenever they were apart, he often wondered if she was happy with the man she had been married to for longer than he and his wife. But long ago they had agreed to never mention their respective lives and spouses while together, except for the one thing that meant everything to both of them.
