Many thanks to RaRaResources for the blog tour invite, and thank you to the publisher for the ARC. Here is my review of ‘Keeper of Secrets’ by Lynda Stacey:
Should some secrets stay buried?
For as long as Cassie Hunt can remember her Aunt Aggie has spoken about the forgotten world that exists just below their feet, in the tunnels and catacombs of the Sand House. The story is what inspired Cassie to become an archaeologist.
But Aggie has a secret that she’s buried as deep as the tunnels and when excavation work begins on the site, Cassie is the only one who can help her keep it. With the assistance of her old university friend, Noah Flanagan, she puts into action a plan to honour Aggie’s wishes.
It seems the deeper Noah and Cassie dig, the more shocking the secrets uncovered – and danger is never far away, both above and below the ground …
What does TWG think?
Goodness me! I assumed that this storyline was going to have a bit of suspense based on the title, but I was not expecting THIS!
Intuitive and unique, Lynda Stacey just kept feeding me delight after delight, page after page! Firstly, her main character, Cassie, has such an interesting career as an archaeologist, something which I havent seen often in a book. In fact, I’ll even go as far to say that that career path has literally crossed my path less than a handful of times, and I loved that.
Secondly, ‘Keeper of Secrets’ is a story that just kept on giving; a real Pandora’s box read which delivered on intensity as though it was the most normal thing in the world.
Even though a lot of this book would fall under the heading of ‘suspense’, there seemed to be a real mixture of romance, fragile family relationships, and hidden agendas, alongside the suspense which, in my opinion, gives the reader a lot to keep them on their toes. It certainly worked for me anyway!
Once I got into the swing of things, I throughly enjoyed this compulsive, compelling read – it really ticked my boxes, that’s for sure!
