Book Review: The Secrets You Keep
The Secrets You Keep was written by Kate White and published by Harper Paperbacks in 2017. You can purchase it on Amazon/Kindle and you can visit the author on Amazon and on social media.
A murder mystery that has many interesting twists and turns to it. It also shines a bright light on how marital trust can come into play.
Bryn Harper is an accomplished self-help author, but she has found herself in the throes of a long and frustrating case of writer's block after a horrific car crash took the life of a business associate and put her in the hospital with multiple injuries. She's on the mend from the accident but she has recurring nightmares that relate to the accident, and she can't shake the feeling that the dreams contain a warning. Combined with all of these challenges, Bryn realizes that her husband, who she has deeply loved, is keeping secrets from her. Secrets that are terrifying, which could uproot her whole life and everything she cares about. Murder soon enters the plot. A female catering chef hired by Guy, Bryn's husband, is the victim of a brutal homicide and this sends Bryn into frantically searching for answers. Her nightmares may hold the key to unlocking the truth and exposing the murderer, but it isn't over. Another associate of her husband's is slain and Bryn, who is fingered by the authorities as "a person of interest" in the killings, is now more desperate to find answers. How will it all end? Can she salvage her marriage and her career and keep herself safe from a very real and deadly threat? This is a murder mystery that has many interesting twists and turns to it. It also shines a bright light on how marital trust can come into play, shaking our belief system and crumbling a once strong, enduring and loving relationship to the ground. Exploring the perimeter of trust is something that we can all relate to, and it is this ingredient combined with the mystery of murder that binds this story together to give us a very exciting and riveting page turner. The author knows her craft. I loved it!
I give Secrets That You Keep 4 out of 5 stars.
