More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Linda S. Prather, was born in Kentucky in 1955. She currently live in Lexington, Kentucky with my fiancé, Coby W. Fuson. She has two wonderful sons, Charles and Steven.

I have always loved reading and writing. And although perhaps not a great literary work, I loved and was inspired by Old Yeller. The characters in that book were real to me. When I started writing, it was my greatest desire to write characters that readers could love and hate, laugh and cry with.
Knowledge was another love. I wanted to learn about everything. I studied metaphysics; delving into touch healing, dream analysis, meditation, and hypnosis. I received my associate's degree in metaphysics in 1992 and continued from there to become a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I spent several years studying the effects of hypnosis on cancer and pain. I taught meditation, dream analysis and self-hypnosis through Eastern Kentucky University's Special Programs for four years. The power of the mind has always fascinated me. I've recently become a paranormal investigator, and love old houses that go bump in the night.

The Gifts and coming soon Sacred Secrets are a combination of my love of mystery, metaphysics and the paranormal.

Having read the first book of this series, The Gifts, I was so excited to have this prequel released! How did I spend a snowy day you ask? Doing the laundry that really needed attention, baking some goodies for my family, or reading this book for 6 hours straight? If you went with option 3, you win!! I could not put this book down from the moment I started reading it.
Sometimes I find that in a mystery book, you are left to your imagination about the characters, but with Sacred Secrets the characters are rounded out nicely. I was drawn into their experiences, laughed with them and felt everything they felt.

I can't wait for the next installment... keep 'em coming!!!

This supernatural thriller mystery grabbed my interest in the first few pages. The suspense kept me going, turning pages as fast as I could, right up through the end.

The story revolves around Jacody and Katie, two characters that you'll care about as you learn their secrets. There is a pretty wide variety of characters, and we get to know a little something about all of them and in some cases, wonder about them - why they did what they did or why they are the way they are.

It's interesting that this story could have worked as a straight mystery, with no supernatural elements, with one possible exception - the dreams. With a foundation of real characters going through real events, the supernatural elements seem all the more realistic.

The only criticism I have was that it could have used better editing. I found a total of seven errors, things like:

"It a suitable donor wasn't found . . ."
"Opening the door she let go of him, laughing as he stumbled to the nearest chair, held on for a second and then sat down in the floor."
"Sally puttered around the room, plumping pillows, refilling the water picture."

I'm not an editor. I don't intentionally look for errors. With a total of seven, there weren't so many errors that it started to get annoying. I've read others that were much worse with two to three times as many.

I'd recommend Sacred Secrets as a fun, fast-paced read that will keep you guessing right up until the end.

BTW, after reading this, I'm going to buy her other book, "The Gifts," which is next in a series about Jacody Ives.

I really liked this book. I didn't find it confusing at all even though I hadn't read The Gifts yet. I thought the author did a good job making you care about the characters. It had lots of little twists and turns that made me not want to put it down until I finished it.

I 'v just finished reading "Sacred Secrets", could not put it down.. Having been a reader for over 55 years, I'm 72 this year. I can tell you it is one of the best written books I have ever read. It has every thing you could ever want it a story. Its as well written as any Nora Roberts books, and she is the best. So of course I had to buy the sequel to "Sacred Secrets", "The Gifts" It was just as good as the first book. I'm waiting for Lynda's next book, I think is a Psychic Thriller. I bought mine from Amazon's kindle e-books, would have paid more any where else. Lynda keep writting.

Though Jacody Ives is the main character in Sacred Secrets, the author's writing draws you into the thoughts and feelings of each character in the story, giving you layers of suspense and sensations you miss with a book written solely from one viewpoint. I thoroughly enjoyed both The Gifts and Sacred Secrets and am looking forward to the next book.

Maybe it was just my mood this week, but I had a difficult time following the story line. At some points the book was really good, but at other times, I had to go back to previous chapters, to figure out what was going on.

Sacred Secrets, A Jacody Ives Mystery (Jacody Ives Mysteries) [Kindle Edition] available at Amazon Author Linda S. Prather & Charles, Jr. Prather

Jacody Ives has a secret and is well suited to solving the crime that haunts his sleep. He seeks absolution in solving what haunts him. Katie O'Connor is a woman who has been living with the knowledge she was at death's door since she was a child but the door is opening wider and she hasn't much time. An accident gives Katie the life she's always wanted but the heart is a bridge to the killer and Katie's past. Jacody's and Katie's lives are about to intersect with a psychic bond involving a serial's killers actions, his victim haunting them both.
In the book Jacody states "It all boils down to secrets who was hiding what and why?" Isn't that what every good mystery is about and this one is definitely a better than average mystery.
This is a suspenseful story with intricate layers woven with great care and detail to make an exceptional read. I truly enjoyed this stunning mystery as the author drew me in and made me identify with both of the main characters. It reminded me of some of Tony Hillerman's books with its mysticism and mythic legends woven into the story. Readers who enjoy his books would certainly enjoy this one. This book was one I could stop reading until its conclusion. I look forward to reading the prequel to this book The Gifts and any other material from this author.
