There is a very fine line between sanity and insanity. When you ask yourself, "Am I crazy for doing this?" Or "Does this make me look crazy?" Most people who have mental illness never realize that these questions apply to them and their behavior. The sane ones are always the questionable ones that typically have nothing to worry about...but what happens if tragedy strikes and those questions no longer bridge the boundary of restraint?
James is just one of those unpopular kids who falls in love with the most popular, beautiful girl in his school. Unlike most popular kids, Mercy Worthington is kind and does not ridicule James like the others do. Her boyfriend on the other hand...he has hurt James before, making it almost near impossible to get close to Mercy. After her disappearance, the town fades away as James and his family move away...causing him to leave his only friend AJ behind. With the town already being untrusting, it appears that James and his family have something to hide. In Ohio, his parents force him to see a psychologist about frequent nightmares...but then advises them to move back to the very place where James' dream disappeared. Upon arriving back in the small town, he gets reacquainted with his old friend, AJ but then more girls start disappearing...and all the evidence leads back to him. Can James prove his innocence...prove that he has possibly been set up by his best friend who has become distant and violent? When James' psychologist comes all the way from Ohio because of the recent disappearances, James discovers the truth about him and his family's buried secrets. Will it tear him apart?
Valentine has a fantastic and short psychological novel that is well written and credible. This author pulls her readers in with the suspense of the story. While this story is quite predictable, it does flow steadily and remains easy to read throughout its entirety. Due to the content, it is recommended for a mature audience. If you are a reader of psychological thrillers, you may want to pick this up.
A copy of this book was provided to Turning Another Page by the Indie Sage PR, but this in no way affects our honest opinion of the book or the review that has been written.
Saying all that my heart really broke for James. Here he had been this young boy who was in love with Mercy Worthington. Oh, he was shy and did not have the guts to do anything about pursuing her. She was popular and he was not. Now here Mercy was died and James parents felt the need to move him away from the horror that was going on.
It was hard on James having to come back to the town that he was pulled from. He had a child friend by the name of A.J. and soon he will wonder about that friendship.
James and Jennifer Milford start to see each other. It is a sweet romance that James so desperately needs. Seems like the girls he was coming in contact with were coming up dead and he did not want anything to happen to Jennifer.
James did not have a good home life and it seems like the things that were going on around him were leading him into depression. He did not trust his friend A.J.. He really did not feel he had anyone to turn to.
This story is about young love, hurt, heartache, loneliness, and confusion. There is mystery and battles that certain people today live through. Yeah, I know that is a little vague but I truly do not want to give much away. It was a good book but very dark.
As with all the books I read, I went into Buried Secrets blind having not read the synopsis. The prologue pulled me in and had me itching to find out where this story was going. From the start, I had this creepy crawly feeling in regard to James and AJ. And the further I went through James's journey, the more everything just seemed a bit off. While I found it well written, it was a bit predictable. Of course, I imagine it might not feel the same for a young adult or someone not used to reading suspense. I will say, however, that it was fast-paced and held my interest throughout. I also liked the ending. It left me with a disturbed feeling well after I finished reading.
