Their homecoming wasn’t so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave twelve years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family’s legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren’t prepared for what awaited them—an unforgiveable sin that has been hidden for twelve long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock.

About Unlocking Secrets, Keys to Love #2

A grim discovery in Lance Kendall’s home proved one thing—the residents of Blyth Lake had a serial killer in their midst. Now Lance had unintentionally put a target on his back. Worst yet, he’s made the only woman he ever loved known to a murderer.

A trip down memory lane with the man who’d broken Brynn Mercer’s heart wasn’t the smartest thing she’d ever done in her life, but their reunion was a slow burn of temptation that she couldn’t ignore.

Together, they will only have one chance to correct the past. Will the hidden secrets he uncovered threaten their love or solidify it for a future that has always been out of their reach?


What started with Unlocking Fear, continues with Unlocking Secrets.  You absolutely need to read book 1 first or I suspect that you will be a little lost.

You know, considering what is going on in this community, this is a surprisingly drama free read.  That might seem odd, but you’ll know what I mean when you read it.

It flows so easily that I was just carried along with the story.

I particularly enjoyed how the author was able to sow the seeds of suspicion about the residents.  It didn’t feel forced at all.  What the author has managed to create is a genuine feel of community and family with this series.  And to do so within such a limited page count thus far is impressive.


I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
