Secret Sisters by Jayne Ann Krentz

Everybody has secrets.  Some secrets are bigger than others.  Two young girls who have grown up are carrying a deadly secret.  When the other people involved start dying, they start worrying...

Berkley and Net Galley allowed me to review this book (thank you).  It will be published December 8th.

Madeline goes back to the island in Washington and the run down hotel she used to live and work in with her grandmother.  The caretaker said he needed to talk to her.  When she gets there, he's dying and he doesn't say much.  Just enough to let her know the secret she and Daphne are carrying is no longer a secret.  Madeline is the business executive of a chain of hotels.  She's smart, bossy and no nonsense.  She also knows when she needs help.  Luckily her security man is willing to defend her and help her figure out who the killer is.  She'll need him.

This is a twisted story of blackmail, murder and other dirty secrets in a very small community.  Both Madeline and Jack have baggage and memories they'd like to forget.  They are also carrying regrets and guilt over the past.  Working through that and the current case keeps them busy. Jack's brother, Abe and Daphne are hitting it off well.  But they all have to stay alive to have relationships and it's a very hard thing to accomplish when more than one person is trying to kill you.

I could fall in love with Jack.  He's strong, smart, tough and has good connections.  He and Madeline make a good team.  It amazes me how deadly one family can be.  There wasn't a good one in the batch.  It started fast and kept my attention throughout the book.  This was a very good read.
