Bookish Review: Keep No Secrets
Keep No Secrets is a sequel, and it absolutely reads like a continuation of a story, but the author does enough recapping that the reader does not feel lost even if she hasn't read the previous work. The main character is the DA, who is trying to rebuild his marriage after a brief affair that was splashed all over the media. This is made more difficult, however, when his son's girlfriend accuses him of rape and his former lover returns to town. The characters are not wholly likeable (though perhaps reading the previous book would have helped with that), and the escalation of his court case for rape, given that he is not guilty, and his accuser never intended the lie to go so far, seems a bit improbable, but the book really is a page-turner and kept me reading til the end. The revelation at the end is not as surprising as perhaps it was intended to be, but it was still a very entertaining read.
Note: An e-ARC of this title was provided by the publisher via NetGalley, which was much appreciated, but did not affect the content of my review.
