Philippe Lafrance is a writer who prefers being alone. That is until he is told that a grandfather he never knew existed had died. As he tries to find out the reasons why he never knew about his grandfather, he uncovers things that certain persons want left in the past; including the suspicion that his father and grandfather were murdered and did not die of heart attacks.
Roxanne St-Clair was taken in by Philippe’s grandfather when he found her behind his restaurant as a teen. He changed her life and became a very important part of her life, and now he is gone. What else can she do but help Philippe hunt for a suspected killer and make them pay for their crime?
Roxanne and Philippe are strangers yet find a connection that each is wary of at first, but as they undercover the mystery of Philippe’s father’s past they find themselves giving in to what has begun to bloom between them. Will they be able to enjoy their newfound joy? Or does the killer have other plans for them?
This book definitely has all the elements of a great who-done-it, intrigue, suspense, murder, lies, and suspicions. Not to mention there is some romance thrown in the mix. Deadly Secrets is a book you will want to pick up not only for a good read but to support a good cause as well. Ms. Burke is donating proceeds from this book to breast cancer research. This reader/reviewer commends Ms. Burke on not only her writing but her compassionate heart as well.
