Brenda Novak's THE SECRETS SHE KEPT, as well as the first book in the series THE SECRET SISTER, prior to offering this giveaway. However, you know what they say about the best laid plans... My summer has been nothing short of crazy and I haven't read near as many books as I had hoped! In the meantime, that doesn't mean that I can't share what I have learned about these two books.
THE SECRETS SHE KEPT is the second book in the Fairham Island series. The first book in the series, THE SECRET SISTER, received some fantastic reviews when it was released. In fact, the San Francisco Book Review called it, “the best romantic thriller I’ve read.” (See why I wanted to read these books?)
Here's the publishers summary for the latest book THE SECRETS SHE KEPT:
Exciting, emotional, intense. The thrilling follow-up to New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak's highly acclaimed The Secret Sister. The things that happen in families are always surprising and sometimes shocking!
The rich and powerful Josephine Lazarow, matriarch of Fairham Island, is dead. The police say it's suicide, but Keith, her estranged son, doesn't believe it.
Keith bears scars—both physical and emotional—from his childhood, but he's worked hard to overcome the past. After walking away from his mother and her controlling ways five years ago, he's built a new life in LA. He's also accumulated a fortune of his own. But as soon as he learns of his mother's death, he returns to Fairham. He feels he owes it to his grandfather to put the family empire together again—and he's determined to find his mother's killer.
Problem is…coming home to Fairham puts him back in contact with Nancy Dellinger, the woman he hurt so badly when he left before. And digging that deep into his mother's final days and hours entails a very real risk.
Because the person who killed her could be someone he loves… -- Mira
