The Secrets She Kept by Brenda Novak

Exciting, emotional, intense. The thrilling follow-up to 
New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak's highly acclaimed The Secret Sister. The things that happen in families are always surprising and sometimes shocking! 

The rich and powerful Josephine Lazarow, matriarch of Fairham Island, is dead. The police say it's suicide, but Keith, her estranged son, doesn't believe it. 

Keith bears scars—both physical and emotional—from his childhood, but he's worked hard to overcome the past. After walking away from his mother and her controlling ways five years ago, he's built a new life in LA. He's also accumulated a fortune of his own. But as soon as he learns of his mother's death, he returns to Fairham. He feels he owes it to his grandfather to put the family empire together again—and he's determined to find his mother's killer. 

Problem is…coming home to Fairham puts him back in contact with Nancy Dellinger, the woman he hurt so badly when he left before. And digging that deep into his mother's final days and hours entails a very real risk. 

Because the person who killed her could be someone he loves…

  • My review: The Secrets She Kept by Brenda Novak

  • 4 STARS

  • This can stand alone but is better having read The Secret Sister.  The Secrets She Kept is a murder mystery romance.  It is full of twists you don't see and some you do.   There are plenty of secrets.  There is some love scenes.

  • Josephine Lazarow is a powerful rich mother of three.  She is found dead in her bathtub.  She makes lots of enemies.  The police think she committed suicide her kids do not believe that.

  • Keith Lazarow has not seen his mother or talked to her for five years.  That is also how long he has been off of drugs.  He has turned his life around and made his own fortune.

  • Nancy Dellinger has worked for Josephine for seven years.  She is not sad to see her dead.  She helped Keith years ago when he was on drugs.  She fell in love with him but he just used her.

  • Some of the suspects and why they are suspects part of the story line seems week but I don't want to give it away.  A lot of lives are messed up because of Josephine ego and affairs.

  • I never guessed where the story would take me next.

  • I was given this ebook to read by NetGalley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Secrets She Kept.
