The Secrets You Keep by Kate White

 
An automobile accident, a book that can't seem to ​get written, a new home, a murder, and unsettling questions Bryn had about her new husband.

Bryn was recovering from an accident with the total support from her husband starting to wane after three months.   Was he tired of her fragility?  Was he doing things behind her back?​  What else didn't she know about her new husband's current and past life?​

All of this uncertainty also caused Bryn to not be able to focus on the new book she was to be writing.   Her writing kept her busy, but the inspiration just didn't materialize.

What​ ​did materialize was the brutal murder of the chef who catered the dinner party Bryn hosted at her home and things getting worse for her in every aspect. The visits and questions about the murder from the police were very disconcerting, and Bryn wasn't even sure she could trust her husband.
        ​​
When another murder occurs, my mind immediately went to one of the characters as being the same person who murdered the chef.  ​

THE SECRETS YOU KEEP was q​uite a good mystery with most characters not being trustworthy and others who were caught in the middle of the deceit.
        ​​
THE SECRETS YOU KEEP kept me awake longer than usual and kept me in suspense as have all of Ms. White's books.​

Ms. White did it again with another splendid mystery that was well written ​and had plenty of intrigue.

I enjoyed the storyline and trying to guess who the real murderer was.

ENJOY if you read THE SECRETS YOU KEEP.  5/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation in return for an honest review.​

  6. I really think I'll love this one. I'm happy it was 5 stars for you. I'm waiting for the good thriller and mystery/suspense mood to hit me; it's odd that it hasn't already. I think this is right up my alley.

  9. Whilst this storyline, and many of the author's other books, may not be quite 'gritty' enough for me to jump at reading right now - I do enjoy a good murder / mystery from time to time and I am always looking for good new to me authors to add to my list (yes another list!) and that's where Kate's name is heading.

    Thanks as always, for the excellent review and 'Happy Reading' for your next project :)
