A young private investigator learns the price of keeping deadly secrets when a vicious killer sets his sights on her in this pulse-pounding thriller from the USA TODAY and New York Times bestselling author.
Private investigator Kira Vance spends her days navigating the intricate labyrinth of Houston’s legal world, and she knows all of its shadowy players and dark secrets. On a seemingly normal day, she’s delivering a report to her top client when suddenly everything goes sideways and the meeting ends in a bloodbath. Twenty-four hours later, the police have no suspects but one thing is clear: a killer has Kira in his sights.
Fiercely independent, Kira doesn’t expect—or want—help from anyone, least of all an unscrupulous lawyer and his elite security team. Instead, she launches her own investigation, hoping to uncover the answers that have eluded the police. But as Kira’s hunt for clues becomes more and more perilous, she realizes that she alone may hold the key to finding a vicious murderer. And she knows she must take help wherever she can find it if she wants to stay alive…
Written with Laura Griffin’s signature “gritty, imaginative, sexy” (Cindy Gerard, New York Times bestselling author) style, Her Deadly Secrets is an electrifying and scintillating novel that packs a powerful punch.

Gripping plots and twists. Kept the reader going but could use more relatable encounters between the Kira and Jeremy. Other than he doing guard duty and being strong silent type, there wasn’t much depth to his character nor going deep into his emotions and thoughts. Kira is a hoot though.
Her Deadly Secrets
As always Ms. Griffin writes a story that keeps you turning pages to find out what happens next. Fast paced, suspenseful with action and romance are a promise when you read her books.
Kira Vance is a struggling PI, who works for a fellow PI Oliver Kovack, helping find info on cases he’s working. Meeting him to tell him her latest discoveries she witnesses his death by a bullet at point blank range. He was working for a well known, wealthy defense attorney, Brock Logan, who is also injured in the attack. He subsequently hires Kira, and then Wolfe Security to protect all the members of his team. Kira is not happy, doesn’t feel it’s necessary, and tries to slip by them as often as possible. Until it seems every step she takes in the investigation someone dies.
Jeremy Owen, former Marine is her lead protector. He refuses to let her try and dodge him, and professional as he is, her sassiness turns him on. They both struggle with attraction and when there is a question the team might be called off the job, Jeremy plans to take personal time to keep Kira safe.
Not only is this book exciting to the last page, the characters are very interesting. Two very strong women, Detective Charlotte Spears and Kira stand out. I enjoyed reading this book, when the author is Laura Griffin I know it will be a great read. Thank your Edelweiss for the privilege to read and review this great story.
One of my favorite things about this book is that it follows the POV of two women, a private detective and a police detective, who played a big part investigating and breaking open the murder case this book is based on. I love to see when women are shown just as smart and capable of doing what some believe is a mans job.
Kira was a fascinating heroine to follow in this book. She's more or less just starting out as a private detective. Her mentor was just murdered in front of her and now she has to step into his shoes to not only find the killer but also link that killer to the murder case they were investigating for the defense attorney.
She's a confident woman but also knew her limitations. When the law office hired security for the defense team, she handled it very well. I love a smart and confident woman but not when she thinks she's invincible, and we don't have that with Kira.
I got to know Jeremy a bit in one of the author's Tracer books. I liked him then and I liked him now. He's the strong, silent type which happen to be my favorite. I liked that we got to see him battle with his attraction to Kira. If we didn't, I don't think these two would have been believable.
If I had one complaint, it was that Jeremy and Kira's romance was on the back burner to the investigation. I would have loved more for them but the investigation was pretty exciting to read about and really kept my attention. This is one thing I am learning about this author, she really knows how to grab your attention and keep it.
