Didn't See the Ending Coming ~ When a Secret Kills by Lynette Eason ~ Review

Talk about a twist from what I thought the ending was going to be! A suspenseful conclusion to a three book series that can has kept me on my toes.
    I have been waiting for Jillian’s story for three novels now. She has been the reason and the driving forward behind what our killer has aimed for. It takes courage for her to come back and face the man who she believes to be after her life and the girl doesn’t get much of a break!
     It seemed with this title, there needed to be an explosion or death threat every couple of chapters to keep the tension level high. After a bit this pace became a bit old, but the romance leveled in was a nice balancing act.
   As I mentioned above, the end had a fantastic twist that I didn’t see coming for three books. I think it was a surprise for our would-be murderer too. Talk about depravity…but it was interesting and different. Made for a “did that really just happen??” moment.
   Contemporary suspense with a flair of romance and more than just a pinch of fast finger-flicking through the pages. A weekend read sure to keep you up late to find out “who did it”.
   This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.

More about the novel...

Investigative reporter Jillian Carter knows it's time to put the past to rest. She's tired of looking over her shoulder, letting a killer go free. She's no longer the scared kid who changed her name and disappeared. Now, no matter what the cost, Jillian must do what she is trained to do--ferret out the truth and expose it. Senatotr Frank Hoffman committed murder ten years ago--and Jillian watched it happen.

Didn't she?

Not even the enigmatic and attractive Colton Brady, her ex-boyfriend and nephew of the killer, will be able to make her leave this alone. Get ready for the spine-tingling, nail-biting conclusion to an explosive series.


  1. Oops! I saw it coming...I think that means I read too much suspense - LOL!

    1. Yeah, probably. BUT, I'm also one of those readers that literally could not see the bad guy behind the door. I'm always very proud of myself when I do figure out the ending. LOL!

  2. I saw it coming too. ;) But not in the first two books! And I'm a big suspense reader so I think that may be why. I did like the way the twist unfolded. This was my all day Saturday read. Just me, the book, and my treadmill!

    1. I'm an easily fooled reader. I've said it in all my review titles of suspense books. But I still love them, probably because of that factor. Yes! Agree with you, how it unfolds (even if we know the ending) can make it a great read!

  3. Haha, it sure enough did keep me up late! And no...I didn't see the ending. Well, not quite. But then again, despite reading tons of suspense...I never do. So no big shocker there. ;) Delightful read though!

    1. Oh phew, another reader who didn't see the ending coming. I was afraid I was in the minority. ;-)
