I am super excited to share my review with you today for Dead Secret by Noelle Holten……Which is out now
Psychopaths can take root in the unlikeliest soil…
DC Maggie Jamieson crosses paths once again with Probation Officer Lucy Sherwood when a domestic violence survivor stumbles into her new refuge, unable to speak, desperate for help.
Then another case hits Maggie’s desk. A young man has been murdered, and a curious constellation of black dots has been inked onto his cheek.
That’s when DCI Hastings goes missing and Maggie uncovers a shocking connection that turns the case on its head.
Every family may hide secrets, but not every family buries them…
Dead Secret is the fourth book in the DC Maggie Jamieson series. I always say that it’s all about the beginning and end of a book and Noelle certainly knows how to draw you in from the start where it carries on from where the last book Dead Perfect ended. OMG what an awesome start. Not forgetting I left with a total jaw dropping ending talk about leaving me hanging. The last chapter was flipping brilliant.
I love that Noelle doesn’t overly describe the characters leaving it to the readers imagination and also having characters I actually know makes this an easy enjoyable read.
As much as I enjoyed this book, I would have liked to have read more plot. I felt like there was more going on in Maggie’s personal life than the actual case in the middle of the book. Has I couldn’t help but compare it to book three which is still my firm favourite in the series
Nevertheless I was hooked from start to finish and I cannot wait to see what happens. The ending was a full on OMFG moment……Loved it!
Massive thank you to Sarah Hardy for the blog tour invite and to One More chapter for a copy of the book.
