5 Secrets
A murder mystery to keep you at the edge of your seat. This is a book that makes me wish that I paid more attention to that speed reading class that I signed up for in high school. So many secrets to uncover before Madeline and Daphne can be safe.
When Jack Rayner was contracted to become the new security expert for a chain of hotels he didn’t think that his job would consist of doing background checks on the men that Madeline was dating. Nor did he think that he would be thrown into an eighteen year old cover up involving a twelve year old Madeline, and her best friend Daphne.
Before opening up his own security firm with his brother Abe, Jack was a criminal profiler for the FBI. Now he has a new profile to figure out, but the stakes are much higher. This criminal is after his client Madeline. Although Madeline drives him crazy and tried to fire him after the death of her grandmother, he is drawn to her and vows to keep her safe. The intense chemistry between Madeline and Jack is obvious to everyone around them even though neither one of them does relationships.
This is a great murder mystery that not only has your anxiety level rising, it also has a delicious sense of humor that will bring out a giggle in spite of the drama of the story.

Everyone has secrets. In Jayne Ann Krentz’s latest release Secret Sisters we learn that everyone always has secrets. It all starts on a night 18 years ago on a small Northwest Island. A psychopath is hunting his prey. The result of his actions that night sends ripples through many years and many lives. The secret they keep changes the lives of the Madeline Chase, and her secret sister Daphne Knight. Someone wants keep the secret of what happened that night buried and they are willing to kill to do it.

This book is a departure from Krentz’s usual romance formula. It’s more along the lines of a murder mystery with personal stories to tell about several main characters than the main two characters figuring out where the relationship is going with some plot excitement thrown in on the side for spice. Good news is that it tells their stories well. The story is that much richer, because seeing many different perspectives helps you understand why some of the characters did things that didn’t seem to make sense from another character's point of view. In the end you come to care about Madeline and Jack; and Daphne and Ace and the small town of Cooper Beach.

I really enjoyed the book, and this will go on my read again annually list. I read Krentz books, because they are great stories and I know I’m going to get a happy ending. This book does’t disappoint.

I almost always read Jayne Ann Krentz (and her pen names) immediately, and this one was no different, despite the author’s foreboding words about how different it is from her usual stories. She described it as darker, grittier, and edgier. I don’t mind any of that, but I was wondering how much of my Krentz fondness was due to nostalgia and comfort, and how much was her ability to weave a story. I mean, we like what we like, and it is often remarkably tough to parse out WHY we like or dislike things.

So the beginning was dark, as promised. And then we move into meeting our grown up heroine and her hero. Madeline is aggressive and icy and emotionally closed off. But Jack, Krentz paints him as sexy right from the beginning, or at least in my opinion she does, because men who are competent in the kitchen are my catnip. It made him seem softer and was a nice foil to his otherwise rough tough image and was a nice characterization thread throughout.

Anyway, we get into the mystery pretty quick. And, it is hard to explain, but the dialogue is a little stilted. It is like Krentz was trying to wade into unfamiliar waters and she feels unbalanced and couldn’t quite get a feel of what her characters would say, or how they should say it. There is also some kind of Nora Roberts vibe, I don’t know, but the set up with dual couples and the suspense just had something of a Roberts feel.

In any event, once the mystery really got up and running I didn’t mind the slightly awkward dialogue anymore I was just sucked into this over the top dramatic suspense. Except I also kind of wasn’t. I was into it, don’t get me wrong, but if something distracted me from it, it often kept me distracted and I didn’t find myself racing back to the story.

My first encounter with the suspense-filled world of Jayne Ann Krentz and it won't be my last. I was hoping for a mystery I could sink my teeth into and some romance as well. I got way better than I was expecting. Just when I thought I had things figured out, a new twist would happen to send that theory careening away. What a fantastic blend of romance and suspense.

The story was a standalone and that had appeal for a first-time encounter.

Beginning in the past with a brutal encounter that set things in motion that for eighteen years seemed to lie dormant before forcing their way into the light, the story gets off to an exciting start with a murder and an attempted murder for Madeline Chase when she is called back to the old, memory-filled hotel in the San Juan Islands of Washington State.

Madeline inherited her grandmother's hotel and hospitality empire after her recent death. Madeline has always had issues in relationships and likes to be firmly in charge. But she meets her match in her hotel's security firm owner, Jack Raynor. Jack is nothing like the men she usually goes for and he ruffles her feathers, but when a present murder, a murderer who came after her, and the past threatening to surface again, Jack is the one person she wants by her side to help sort it all out.

Jack is attracted to Madeline, but he has his own issues that keep him from wanting to try for anything lasting. But he can't help rushing into action when the stubborn woman gets herself into danger and won't back down from the truth. He admires this even as he uses all his former FBI profiling skills and intuition to solve the case that connects to several other people who may or may not be involved.
