I have to admit that “Secrets” doesn’t fall into my usual reading genre, however, Barb Winkes had donated a copy as a prize in a competition I had entered and was lucky enough to win.
I don’t feel that I appreciate or have enough experience with this type of book to do it any real justice, but I’ll rate this story for the story itself, not the genre.
I wasn’t enthralled with the story like I get with the Paranormal Romance (I’m sorry, I just love Vampires etc) but I did get absorbed enough to read the book in two sittings.
What I liked: It was an uncomplicated, easy to follow story. It had twists and turns to keep the reader guessing and it had a romance flowing alongside the mystery. The main characters were easy to keep track of and the background characters filled the story out nicely.
What I didn’t like: that I didn’t appreciate this story as much as I feel I could have, and that’s nothing against Barb Winkes’ book – that’s because of my own personal reading tastes.
Who would I recommend this book to? Anyone that likes mystery & suspense.
All in all, I’m glad I read “Secrets”. It gave me a taste of something outside my reading comfort zone and brightened up a dull dreary day.
Gonna rate this 4 Shamrocks for being an enjoyable read overall.
