I was intrigued by the blurb.


4 stars


They knew his name, the man who tried to brutally attack twelve-year-old Madeline in her grandmother’s hotel. They thought they knew his fate. He wouldn’t be bothering them anymore…ever. Still their lives would never be the same. 

Madeline has returned to Washington after her grandmother’s mysterious death. And at the old, abandoned hotel—a place she never wanted to see again—a dying man’s last words convey a warning: the secrets she and Daphne believed buried forever have been discovered.

Now, after almost two decades, Madeline and Daphne will be reunited in friendship and in fear. Unable to trust the local police, Madeline summons Jack Rayner, the hotel chain’s new security expert. Despite the secrets and mysteries that surround him, Jack is the only one she trusts…and wants. 

Jack is no good at relationships but he does possess a specific skill set that includes a profoundly intimate understanding of warped and dangerous minds. With the assistance of Jack’s brother, Abe, a high-tech magician, the four of them will form an uneasy alliance against a killer who will stop at nothing to hide the truth….

Secret Sisters starts out hitting the ground running in this new action packed story! I loved the plot lines in this story. I spent half of the book trying to figure out who did it, and the other half of the book trying to make my suspect of the chapter fit the profile, all the while trying to predict what would happen next! I had a suspect and motive list a mile long, and every time I thought I solved it, I found out I was wrong. I loved the challenge of trying to put all the pieces of the puzzle together!

One of my pet peeves in romantic suspense is when the couples cannot keep their hands off of each other, and even resort to hooking up at times that in real life, we would find that behavior inappropriate and disrespectful. Jack and Madeline had a lot of chemistry, but I liked the fact that this was not an over the top, sex on every chapter type of story. Their love felt more realistic, in that they were able to keep their hands to themselves when it wasn’t appropriate to be all over each other.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book, and I would recommend this to any romance reader that is looking for a little break from the over the top sex that seems rampant in the genre lately, and are looking to immerse themselves into a really great who-dun-it type of romance.
