I finished reading this story over a week ago and could not wrap my mind around what I’d read, let alone find the words to put down on paper. I love murder mysteries, horror, suspense, betrayal, you name it; if it’s a trigger for some readers, it’s probably a winner for me. But this one kind of took me off my game. It was good, don’t get me wrong, but it was seriously messed up and I’m not sure if I really liked it or not. I’m talking we have a grade A psycho on the one hand, a gullible

The theme of this book is bad choices. Pretty much every character makes them. Some are just much much worse then others. I think the author tried to skirt the line of truly bad people versus people those who under their influence do things they wouldn’t normally do. Like there’s a grey area that our MC Bryson falls into. He’s not completely absolved of wrong doing but he gets passes in this story that I don’t feel comfortable with even if he’s also

I can’t believe I’ve only just discovered this author. In saying that it appears I have many books to look forward to reading, if Buried Secrets is any indication of how totally engaging his writing style is.

What I loved most about the story was the character development. I hated Daniel with a passion, right from the get-go, but that’s a good thing as it means he was more than a cardboard cutout. Bryson was a little more of a mystery. There are many, many references to him not being good enough.

This was really not my cup of tea.
Sure I don't mind characters that operate on the wrong side of the law or at least skirts the border of it.
I don't mind fast declarations of love.
I certainly don't mind sexy times...
What I do mind is when those elements are used, but not executed well. I loved the premise of this book. Who wouldn't be drawn in by a blurb like this one?
I sooooo wanted to love the actual story too.

We have the tortured hero (?) who makes the wrong decisions time after time. We

The only bright spots in Bryson Franklin’s life were his grandparents and the farm they owned in Willow River. His parents were drunks and always made sure he knew he was a mistake. Bryson always believed that he was never good enough, so he wound up being around a bad class of people. When he inherits his grandparents’ farm he tries to start over again, but his self-esteem and loneliness eat away at him, still making him feel useless. Bryson makes a connection to his neighbor Daniel Riggs. Brys ...more
