HOUSE OF CHRISTMAS SECRETS

Can a secret be worse than a lie?
Every time Kate Duggan looks in a mirror she is confronted by her guilt; a long, red scar reminding her that she was ‘the one to walk away’ from the car accident. Not everyone was so lucky …
On the surface her fiancé Rob is supportive – but the reality is different. He’s controlling, manipulative and, if the phone call Kate overhears is anything to go by, he has a secret. But just how dangerous is that secret?
When Kate begins work at a firm of private investigators, she meets Ben Parker. His strong and silent persona is intriguing but it’s also a cover – because something devastating happened to Ben, something he can’t get over.
As Kate and Ben begin their first assignment, they become close. But, what they don’t realise is how close to home the investigation will bring them, or who will be hurt in the process …

What people are saying:
Lynda Stacey showed she could really crank up the tension and write a great story with her last book, House of Secrets. But this one…phew!
Annie’s Book Corner, Top 500 Reviewer.

I love a good mystery with well developed characters. Kate is a great heroine – full of complexity. Ben is strong, funny, and sexy. There were lots of twists and turn in this story to keep the reader guessing.

If you like romantic suspense then you can’t go wrong with this book.

Reviews for Tell me no Secrets

Really loved this one…

By Welsh Annie TOP 500 REVIEWER on 11 April 2017

Lynda Stacey showed she could really crank up the tension and write a great story with her last book, House of Secrets. But this one…phew! This really was quite a read – and in nothing but a good way! Kate is a great character – very likeable, strongly drawn – and you really feel for her as she struggles to conceal her visible scar after an accident that changed her life. She can’t hide the other scars though – her guilt about the others who weren’t so lucky, the damage to her self esteem, the problems with trust and the impact on her relationship with her parents.

OK, so maybe there aren’t too many of us who get the opportunity to train as a private investigator – even less of us (sadly…) get to work with a hot guy who really cares, with a hidden past and a knack for doing exactly the right thing at the right time. But the author really makes the story line work, a real page-turner and totally believable – I loved all the detail about running an investigation, the technology, the mind-numbing time in vans waiting for something to happen, even the photos of the backs of people’s heads being less than useful for identification. The way the story slowly escalates and becomes something other is really well done – also totally believable, with real shocks along the way.

 

 

A secret you’ll want to know about!!

By karen mace on 11 April 2017

This is a story with a little bit of everything in it! Romance, grief, new starts, secrets, lies, romance, danger …… think every base is covered in this new release from Lynda Stacey!

There’s an edgy feeling from the start in this book and as you follow Kate in her new role in life, trying to deal with her past which isn’t easy when she’s reminded of it everytime she looks in a mirror. Her work as a Private Investigator soon helps to give her new focus, and she becomes intrigued by her new boss, Ben Parker, who also seems to be hiding something.

Really enjoyed how their relationship evolves and also loved how the case they are working on turns out to be a whole lot darker than they first thought! I loved it!
