Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “The Secrets We Share” by Edwin Hill, Kensington Books, March 29, 2022
WOW! I was totally blind sighted and shocked by the intense, and mysterious events in “The Secrets We Share” by Edwin Hill, Author. This is one captivating, intriguing and suspenseful novel. The genres for this novel are mystery, crime novel, thriller, suspense and fiction.
The timeline for this novel spans over 20 years, and the current crime/s are reminiscent of 20 years before. The author describes his dramatic and colorful characters as complex and complicated. Some characters are not who they appear to be. There are betrayals, lies, deep dark secrets, and moments where certain characters have to “watch their backs”. There are threats, danger, kidnapping and murder. I love that Edwin Hill has the element of surprise, and vividly describes the characters, and events in this novel.
Two sisters have different perspectives and memories of life 20 years ago, when a tragic murder changed their lives forever. Natalie is a Police officer, and Glenn has just written a book and craves publicity. As the secrets of the past start to unravel, threatening and alarming events have a feeling of deja-vu.
I could not put this book down! There are clues and “red herrings”, and I honestly can say that I caught off guard, again and again. I highly recommend this amazing and impressive novel.
