Secrets We Keep

Secrets We Keep
"Another fabulous story—a mystery to solve, danger and romance all wrapped together. If you''re not already a fan of Barbara Freethy, this story is sure to make you one." – Susan D., Goodreads When firefighter Hunter Callaway makes a grisly discovery during a scorching fire at the house of his former high school sweetheart, everything he thought he knew about his past is now in question. The girl he''d loved, the one who''d broken his heart when she''d run away with another guy, might not have been who he thought she was. The last thing Cassidy Ellison ever wanted to do was revisit her past. But she''s suddenly a suspect in a terrible crime, and while she might be able to put off the police, there''s no running away from Hunter Callaway—not again. The boy of her dreams is now a man—an impatient, angry, demanding man who wants answers, some of which she has vowed never to speak. Staying silent has kept her alive, but now her secrets might not only take her life, but also Hunter''s. As determined as Hunter is to make her talk, someone else is just as determined to keep her quiet… What the readers are saying… "I read SECRETS WE KEEP in one sitting and could not put it down. This is my "comfort food" author where I know I will enjoy and savor the story, still wanting more. The pace was consistent throughout the book and the character development had many layers where you were feeling happy, sad, anxious and overall feelings of hope for yet another Callaway." Debbie "Oh, I loved it so much. Another great read by Ms. Freethy! It has lots of romance, drama and laughs as well. SECRETS WE KEEP is another Great Callaway story. You must read this one." Mary "Falling in love is risky business for a Callaway in SECRETS WE KEEP. Freethy exercises every sense to create unforgettable. From the mind to the heart, nothing is off limits." Isha "SECRETS WE KEEP was intense, suspenseful, and kept me on the edge of who was the guilty one from Cassidy''s past. Lots of twists and turns, almost being driven off a cliff, kidnapped, and almost shot. Lots of action to keep you on the edge. Loved it!!"
