I really enjoyed this story for many reasons, but have to admit, I had a little trouble at the start, being able to connect with the main characters.
A really good writer reveals the, "who, what, when, where", at the right time. As even a little was explained about Madeline's background, and later, Daphne's, I was easily able to relate to them, and to admire both.
The heroes are both very unique individuals, despite being brothers. They are also boss and employee, of a very small, start up hotel security company. Madeline's hotel chain is their first big client.
I really liked all of them very much, and enjoyed the dialog, and interactions between all of them.
And then, there are the bad guys...one extremely dis functional family!
With looks, charm to spare, and money to burn, what's not to like about the Websters? Well, it turns out that there is a streak of insanity running through one family member, (maybe more than one). While the volatile Xavier is the most obvious choice for all the murder and mayhem, there are plenty of suspects to add to the mix!
The romance is handled well, as usual with this author, and getting two for one is always a plus!
There is a lot going on in this story, but, I think it's better to discover it for yourself.
Enjoy! Ms. Krentz has written another keeper!
Now, shortly after her grandmother’s death, Madeline has inherited the Sanctuary Creek chain of hotels. Jack Rayner, head of her security team, has just helped her deal with a personal problem, so when she gets a call from Tom Lomax, the caretaker on Cooper Island, the two of them head off to see what is happening.
When they arrive, they discover a whole series of problems, beginning with Tom’s murder. A missing briefcase linked to the long-ago secret lead to them finding Madeline’s friend and secret sister Daphne Knight in Denver, who has just discovered that someone ransacked her condo.
On the island, they are joined by Jack’s brother and partner Abe, and together begin sorting through the clues. How are the powerful Webster family, so-called “owners” of the island, connected to the events in the present? Do Egan and Louisa have secrets from the past, too? Are the sons Travis and Xavier involved? Explosions, murders, and many dastardly deeds turn up a slew of suspects, some more nefarious than the others. The story held plenty of suspense, a bit of romance, and a satisfactory resolution.
Secret Sisters was a twisted and somewhat convoluted tale that kept me rapidly turning pages, wondering how Jack and his associates would sort it all out. Even when I thought we had the bad guys identified, there were more loose ends that kept me reading. A perfect 5 star read, since I couldn’t stop reading…and hadn’t figured it all out until the end.
