When A Secret Kills by Lynette Eason - REVIEWED!!

About the Book:
She's come home to put a killer behind bars. 
But the killer plans to put her six feet under.

Investigative reporter Jillian Carter knows it's time to put the past to rest. She's tired of looking over her shoulder, letting a killer go free. She's no longer the scared kid who changed her name and disappeared. Now, no matter what the cost, Jillian must do what she is trained to do-find the truth and expose it. And the truth is that Senator Frank Hoffman committed murder ten years ago-and Jillian watched it happen.

Didn't she?

Get ready for the spine-tingling, nail-biting conclusion to this explosive series.

My Thoughts:

At that point, I dropped it and decided to pray about it…..I wonder if you’re my answer.” (p. 156)

There are a lot of different prayers wining their way heavenward in this story!  As fast as the words are being uttered circumstances are changing even faster!  I haven’t been on a thrill ride like Lynette Eason’s When A Secret Kills in a while!! What a blast!  Well, it was a blast for me as a reader – not so much for the characters in the story! Have mercy! They barely make it from one chapter to the next!

You see, Jillian Carter has returned to “the scene of the crime” as it were.  She and her friends have been running from a deadly secret for almost ten years, and she wants to see justice served.  Yes, there is a price to be paid for that truth coming to light, and Jillian just hopes she doesn’t have to pay with her life.

Not only does she have to face the truth behind the crime she witnessed in the first book of the Deadly Secrets series, she must also face the consequence of a deeply personal secret that she has hidden.  Again, she realizes that there will be consequence for her action, and she has no guarantee that things will go well for her or those she loves.

There is a LOT as stake in this novel! There are deeply personal and frightening truths that must be faced by a myriad of characters.  Your heart aches with both fear and longing as the story unfolds, and many times practically pounds out of your chest! This is an excellent suspense novel in every sense of the word!! I can’t recommend this series highly enough!
