Every family has its secrets.Morley, for example, is reluctant to talk about her beauty parlour betrayal and that other man in her life: Mathieu.Stephanie hasn't been entirely open about what she was doing in the woods last summer.Sam is keeping mum about his dark powers of prophecy and why he is going by the alias "Samantha."And Dave tries to avoid mentioning his attempted break-and-enter at the Turlingtons'.Who can blame them? When you commit acts of arson during Christmas dinner, attempt to start a life of crime by shoplifting a lipstick or sink your false teeth into the forbidden pleasure of corn on the cob, it's hard to come clean.These are the stories that no one knows, the stories Dave and Morley wouldn't tell you themselves: lies, white and otherwise, aliases, double lives and all manner of petty crimes and everyday transgressions. These are the secrets from the Vinyl Cafe.

This was the first of Stuart's books that I ever read. At the time, it was his most recent. I became hooked! (I loved how every story had a nice, little moral at the end.) Since then, I've seen Stuart's live show, I own every book that he's written and about 5 of his books on CD.

McLean's stories are good but best with time between.

This is a small book and has lots of space and cartoon like images. The stories are classic Stuart Maclean, funny and a little sad, sometimes hilarious. As usual the author''s voice can be heard as you read. I wish there were more stories and I wish they were longer. My favourite was probably the sick dog story. Highly recommended for fans of any of his earlier books or his radio broadcasts.
