I’ve had quite a bit of down time due to my hip surgery last week. Four days in the hospital, and I felt I needed every second of that healing time. I don’t think I read once while I was in there, and even in the preceding days at home after, I’ve been too uncomfortable to do anything but feel sorry for myself. My own personal pity party.
But it’s over now–for the most part. Day by day my body is healing and I am beginning to want to read again. This latest book–Kept Secrets–was pretty intense. I couldn’t put it down once I started it.
A chance meeting at a Vegas planned wedding elopement of friends leads two high school sweethearts to reminisce and marry unexpectedly themselves the same night. But Grace has no idea that Devin, her new husband, has secrets that could possibly tear them apart. He has pledged the next five years of his life to the CIA and right after graduation from Stanford must take off for Hong Kong on an assignment he cannot reveal to his wife. When months go by and they do not connect, Grace wonders if he really loved her or not. Was Vegas just a whim for Devin, or has something happened to keep the man she loves from communicating with her?
This was an action-packed thriller with lots of heart-tugging and intrigue that made it hard to put down. Once I started, I wanted to figure out what would happen to Devin and Grace when forces beyond their control became consumed with bending them to their wills or destroying them in whatever method necessary. Warning: This was definitely a story that wreaked havoc on my nails as I chewed, gnawed and picked away to vent my fear and anxiety for the characters. Though action-packed with violent characters, there is nothing gruesome in it, and it’s clean all the way through.
This story is definitely a 5 on Amazon and Goodreads and a 4 on my Sweet Scale…Delicious! Definitely one I want to read again.
