Keeping Secrets in Seattle by Brooke Moss
During most of the book I was a ball full of nerves. I truly was worry with what the secret could be. There was so much tension as the story began. I think a lot of it had to deal with Violet Murphy keeping a secret bottled up for almost 10 years. Honestly that takes a toll on a person. It didn't help that her best friend, Gabe Parker, didn't tell her that he got back with his ex-girlfriend and propose to her. Watching her dream burn up in flames, as she sees the love of her life move on with Alicia.
I was feeling really wound up tight until she let the secret out and I was able to finally relax somewhat. By that time all hell had broke loose and I was feeling more calm and able to enjoy the book. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the book, but my emotion were everywhere. The subject of the secret of was extremely heavy, which tends to happen when sexual abuse is involve.
Overall, a marvelous work. I was amaze on how the author was able to tackle something that tends to get buried deep down in a dark corner. Through out most of the book was heavy, but worth the read. Most of all Violet and Gabe were able to find there happily ever after. Getting there was the challenge. So, if are looking for a change you might give Keeping Secrets in Seattle by Brooke Moss a try.
