How Secrets Die by Marta Perry - TLC Book Tour

Good morning friends, I'm back with another great book tour for you.  As always, my books come from TLC and I'm so excited to be able to share them with you and maybe inspire you to pick up the current book and add it to your read list.

  • Mass Market Paperback: 384 pages
  • Publisher: HQN Books (June 28, 2016)
As Laurel Ridge embraces a stranger hungry for answers, a sinister truth is awakened 

A hard-hitting reporter, Kate Beaumont unearths the deepest lies and brings harsh truths to light. But the story that lures her to the gentle town of Laurel Ridge, Pennsylvania, is closer to her heart than anyone knows. The details of her half brother’s sudden death have never made sense. She owes him justice, yet the one man who can help her is the stubborn sheriff she can’t stand.

Protecting his town is Mac Whiting’s top priority. Everything else—including pacifying a beautiful crusader on a mission best left resting in peace—is secondary. But as Kate’s search embeds her in his world and attracts a skilled criminal, she needs Mac’s protection. Drawn together by deadly secrets, they must find a way to trust each other before a killer silences them both.

At first glance, I wasn't quite sure if I would enjoy the book, and the only reason being that I realized that it was the third book in a series after, Where Secrets Sleep and When Secrets Strike. 

The good thing is that it didn't completely throw me off or make me feel like I was clueless as to what was going on, who the characters were or how they got to this point.

I've never been a huge suspense genre fan, always steering more toward the romance and historical novels, but over the past year or so I've started enjoying this genre more, and I think this book came at the best time for me, having just read something of that kind.

Small town, romance AND suspense made for the perfect story.

The story centers around Kate and Mac.  As Kate arrives in this small town to look for answers to her half brother's death, she can't help but stir up a few doubts and suspicions in some of the locals, one of which is Mac, the police chief who finds her attractive but also someone to keep his eye on.

As they both get thrown into the what if's surrounding her brother's death, they must pull together to figure out the circumstances and in the middle of all this, Kate ends up attracting a skilled criminal who is dead set on stopping her investigation.

Of course we throw in Mac who has started developing feelings for her, and this just made for a really good, fun read.
