Start your review of Secrets at Wongan Creek (Wongan Creek #2)
Life had been exceptionally hard for Tameka Chalmers ever since her mother had left the farmhouse eight years prior. Left with her drunken, aggressive father – a man she tried continually to please but never succeeded in doing so. Tameka managed their farm, Golden Acres, with little help from her father; trying to persuade him to change his chemical spraying of their crops to a more environmentally friendly one. But he just laughed at her, seeming to enjoy the spray drift that ruined their neigh ...more

It’s easy to get lost in Juanita Kees’s take on the Australian rural communities. Essentially Kees does a wonderful job of setting up the Wongan Creek the way of life, how farms are run and the challenges they face especially when the secrets each family has come to light in the worst way possible. There’s as always, a touch of suspense and a whole lot of mystery when it comes to Harley and Tameka’s families whose lives are so intertwined that these bonds have the power to heal as well as to bur ...more

This second book in Juanita Kees Wongan Creek series delves into some harder territory, and while I don't necessarily like the subject matter, I like that dark edge in my reading choices.
This plot races along to a gruesome discovery, and a fitting end for the nasty piece of work who is at the heart of so many tragedies for Tameka.
A lovely rural setting with interesting backstory about trying to farm with organic/environmental principles in a community where several farmers are so very set in the

This story is pacey and gritty. I really enjoyed how Kees wove the love story so adroitly through the narrative.
The gradual revelation of sinister events in Tameka's life set against a backdrop of community unrest for which she feels responsible, kept me engaged and eager to read more. A great story, Juanita Kees. I look forward to reading the other stories in the series.
4.5⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wow, this book certainly packed an emotional punch, at times I read with disbelief at the damage a person can do to another, emotionally and physically. Book two in the Wongan Creek series certainly lived up to my expectations following my enjoyment of Whispers at Wongan Creek.

We meet Tameka aka Tikki who is struggling to keep her farm running while dealing with a father she seems afraid of. We quickly get the idea there is some sort of abuse going on in that household, just what and how

My first read by this author and I'll say I was a bit taken aback by the storyline and turn of events in the book. I was reeled in by the rural setting and what seemed to be a very typical fight among farmers, spraying heavy chemicals vs resorting to less harmful and more eco minded treatments that are better for growing and less harmful to both food and soil.

That said, this book took an incredible twist with the abuse that Tikki put up from her father for years and said not a word to anyone. Wh

MS Kees really knows how to pull a reader into a story with her words that bring to life characters who have been to hell and back and this one is emotional, moving and suspenseful one that should not be missed. I was looking forward to revisiting Wongan Creek and I am glad I went.

Tameka Chalmers has lived in the township off Wongan Creek all of her life on a farm with her mother and father but when her mother leaves after what is known as the big bang and is never heard from again Tameka is lef

I sat down thinking I would just start reading Secrets at Wongan Creek by Juanita Kees. Usually I read for a while then come back to the book later but this book gripped me so that I forgot the time, reading it straight through. It has been a long time since I have done that. On my reader it was 168 pages so that’s quite a one-stop read but I was so involved in Tameka’s dire situation that all else around me fell by the wayside.

Part murder mystery, part childhood friends/ first and only love reu

I absolutely loved this book. It's my favourite book by this author so far. The reasons – well, there are lots of them. The characters are well rounded and believable and I felt for them. The writing is wonderful, the romance beautifully crafted and an underlying dark storyline masterfully handled. Most of all I loved this book because it’s passionate and full of emotion. ...more
