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…

The Secrets She Kept

Loved it, Josephine didn’t deserve what happen to her, but she was due, and Nancy got her man 😎

WOW! This is such a fabulous romantic suspense novel. This is the conclusion to The Secret Sister and it packed quite a punch! There was plot twist after plot twist. Just when you thought you had it figured out, a new piece of the puzzle was falling to place. All while this mystery and suspense played out there was a sweet romance playing in the background.

The characters were perfectly developed and the story line flowed with the expertise only Brenda Novak could deliver. I can't wait to see what's next for this amazing author.
