I love mystery/romantic/suspense…There is a lot of mystery, a hint of romance to come, and some suspense. What I typically avoid are witchy/ghost type stories. So, getting into this book was a surprise to me. I think what caught my attention, frankly, were the reviews and how folks couldn’t put the book down. It turns out that neither could I. One reason is because I really like Jayne - the main character – and her dog. In fact, all of the characters are interesting. Another, is that this is not some devil worshiping thriller but rather a more fanciful account of the wiccan beliefs and practices. I feel it is a good start to what could be a wonderful series since each character has a story to tell and the focus is more on relationships and crime solving than on what is referred to as a pagan religion. It simply adds more color or quirkiness to the intrigue.
The title “Family Secrets” applies to Jayne and others as well. There are things we with-hold from others and things that others with-hold from us. Memories of childhood only hint at what Jayne now discovers about her grandparents and the eccentric village that exists on their family owned 2000 acres in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
The book is well written and moves along at a nice pace. I enjoyed it and now I am anxious to read Kept Secrets: A Whispering Pines Mystery, the next in the series. Although the book can be read as a stand-alone, you just want to go back for a visit to this quaint touristy retreat. If you take my advice and read this book, prepare to be charmed.
I received a free copy and this my honest and voluntary review.
Whispering Pines is supposed to be a safe place and family friendly, but it appears to have been built on a mound of secrets as Jayne O’Shea is learning. She’s now the Sheriff full time after a failed attempt to bring in another sheriff after the death of Sheriff Brighton. Not 1 but 2 carnies learned the hard way about exposing secrets by paying with their lives to be kept quiet. This quaint little village isn’t what it seems to be.
With Jayne being Sheriff I feel the bullying and control over previous sheriffs’ lives is now at an end. There will be , I’m sure, other ways to attempt to control Jayne but it won’t be successful. She’s a natural born cop that will stop at nothing to get at the truth about what she now perceives as her grandmother being murdered.
I’m excited to learn more about the bed and breakfast and how things may or may not develop between Jayne and Tripp. I can’t forget about Meeks because she is very a very important character in these stories even though she’s a dog. She is smart, loving, and has funny little quirks. I love how she keeps Jayne on track and how she lets her mistress know when she’s not happy with her. The bond the 2 share makes their roles even more special to me. I can’t wait for the next book in this series because I have a feeling it will blow me away with just enough taste to keep me wanting to keep coming back! I was provided an advance copy of this book for an honest unbiased review.
Jayne arrived in Whispering Pines to prepare her grandmothers home for sale. She is greeted with a dead body and a vandalized house. She reports both to the sheriff but begins her own investigation when the sheriff seems to be ignoring them. Jayne is a former detective and was very good at her job. As she investigates she uncovers some secrets and may be in danger herself.
Can’t wait to read the next book!
