Ten years ago Jillian Carter witnessed a murder. Terrified, she disappeared, changing her name, appearance, and anything that could lead the killer to her doorstep. Now she’s back in Columbia, South Carolina determined to reclaim the life that was stolen from her — or die trying.
Colton Brady knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Jillian, but then she vanished without so much as a goodbye. Angry and heartbroken, he became a cop, hoping to track her down. A decade later, she has walked — more like crashed — back into his life and she’s accusing his uncle of murder. Torn between loyalty to the man he’s always considered a father and the woman who still holds his heart, Carter must uncover the truth before a determined killer succeeds at silencing Jillian once and for all.
Brace yourself for the explosive conclusion in Lynette Eason’s Deadly Reunions series. When A Secret Kills will shatter all the pre-conceived notions you’ve acquired along the way as nothing is what it seems. This book is probably my favorite installment yet. Although it’s hard to say for sure.
With each novel, Eason expertly increases the suspense, giving the readers a feel for the killer’s frantic and growing desperation. Gripping characters kept me flipping pages long after I should have turned out the lights. I especially liked Colton. Despite having his world turned inside out multiple times, he chose time and time again to react with grace and understanding. He’s definitely the kind of man every girl wants to have on her side.
When a Secret Kills is a story of forgiveness and second chances. I recommend not only this book, but the whole series, to romantic suspense fans.
