What a great romantic mystery novel! As soon as I started reading "Dangerous Secret", I thought of it as a modern day version of the Nancy Drew Mystery Series of old. The protagonist, Abigail Mackenzie, is determined to find out who killed her father just six short years ago.
Abigail is best friends with Julia, a lively redhead who is a free spirit that doesn't always play by the same rules as Abs. Both of these young women have found employment at a local hotel that is in the process of being totally renovated. Abigail finds herself reporting to the mysterious Ryan Newberry whose path she has crossed before when she worked at the ice-cream parlor. Despite the fact that he appears to have a secret, she is undeniably attracted to this handsome aloof man. Julia is smitten with the assistant manager, Shane Dempsey, who appears to have an agenda of his own.
There is no dating allowed between employees at the Washington Valley Hotel yet Abigail catches Ryan in an affectionate embrace with Kimberley. Abigail is totally dismayed by this display of affection and Ryan is frustrated with his reaction to Abigail catching them in this embrace. To complicate their situation, two murders have taken place at the hotel and Abigail seems to think they might be connected to the death of her father. After all, there has been little crime in this quaint little town of North Conway and now three unsolved murders...two made to look like suicide, have taken place in a relatively short period of time. Abigail is now even more determined to get to the bottom of it. What Abigail doesn't realize is that Ryan is doing a little sleuthing on his own...
Once I started reading "Dangerous Secret" by talented Author Jessica Lauryn, I could hardly put this book down. The mystery, the emotion, and the unexpected twists and turns grabbed my attention from the first page to the last. I look forward to reading another book in "The Pinnacles of Power Series". I definitely need to know more!

I'm Not Perfect and It's Okay
Best friends Abigail and Julia have summer jobs as desk clerks at the Washington Valley Hotel. Their boss is a handsome medical student, Ryan Newberry. Although dating is against the rules for co-workers, Abigail and Ryan manage to become involved. Abigail is haunted by the murder of her father when she was a young teen. Her father was a hotel manager and Abigails's new summer position, brings the memories flooding back. Her father's murder was never solved and Abigail is determined to solve the mystery. When several people at the hotel are murdered, Abigail links the new murders to her father's murder. She also links her new love interest, Ryan, to all the murders. Abigail puts herself in danger as she uncovers more and more of the truth.
I enjoyed this book very much. I wasn't familiar with the writing of Jessica Lauryn. Since this book is a prequel to her Pinnacles of Power series, I will definitely be reading more books by Ms. Lauryn. (There are four books in the series including this prequel.)

The hero and heroine, Ryan and Abigail, we're likable, relatable, and while I felt they were inconsistent at times, the duo were perfect vehicles for the twists and turns the story brought forth. Were they my favorites? Nope, not by a long shot. I actually found myself so caught up with trying to figure out the angle with Shane and Mark, that they overshadowed the on again-off again love birds. I loved the opening that Ms. Lauryn left hanging with Mark, and I'm eagerly looking forward to watching him receive his comeuppance.
This book was the perfect beginning to what promises to be an exciting and riveting, action-packed series. I can't wait to see where the author takes us next!
