5.0 out of 5 stars Morton's Best Thus Far, October 16, 2012
This review is from: The Secret Keeper: A Novel (Hardcover)
Read my full review @ [...]

My opinion: I love me some Kate Morton and have read each and every one of her books. Hands down, I consider her to be one of the most original authors I have read. She has continued this tradition of high quality writing in The Secret Keeper. Morton has a history of incredibly strong yet approachable character development. Yet, she has the capabilities to write with engrossing storylines full of twists that leave the readers with a "WTH just happened?" moments.

I was sucked into this book immediately and ended up reading a 450+ page book in several hours. I absolutely couldn't put it down and consider this to be Morton's best book to date.

On a side note, I received this book from Atria Books as an ebook for review. In the future, I will wait for Morton's books to come out in print as I consider them to be special treats. I didn't like the formatting of the ebook and feel that it did distract somewhat from the story. So, make the investment and grab the book in print. It is well worth the extra couple of bucks!

I so enjoyed this book, that it surprized me how fas I read it. I could not put it down. I was so engrossed in it. I felt like a fly on the wall as this story unfolded in London during the Blitz. I have read all her books and I cant wait until the next one. I have so enjoyed each one of her stories and have become a tru fan of hers. Thank you Kate. You have convinced me I will always be a fan of yours. I intend to tell all of my reading friends how wonderful herbooks are. I intend to reread all her books again until the next one leaves her thoughts.

Hungry, I bet when you do, you will see things that you missed the first time you read them! That is what I love about Ms. Morton's writing is her ability to write beneath the surface, as well as what is printed on the page! Very few authors have that gift.
