ConfidentialityConfidentiality by Jessica Aiken-Hall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having been hooked whilst reading ‘Boundaries’, the first book in Aiken-Hall’s new series, ‘Scope of Practice’, I was looking forward to this second novel, ‘Confidentiality’ and I was not disappointed. The storyline continues with Valerie Williamson who works at Lawrenceville Regional Hospital as a deceased patient coordinator, and with Valerie’s past now no longer a secret things are looking up for her. The novel can be read as a standalone story, however if read in order then you will have a better understanding of Valerie’s backstory. Valerie and her detective fiancé Tim are now planning their wedding and Valerie is no longer feeling isolated although her past trauma still effects her. Just as she believes she can have a ‘normal’ life a series killer targets Lawerenceville. As Tim is busy investigating the case Valerie believes the connection that links the murders can not be a mere coincidence and begins her own detective work to figure it out before the killer has opportunity to strike again.
This novel has a fast paced storyline with plenty of suspense, mystery, action, and great characters. I was pleased to be back with main character Valerie who is a very realistic character and one who you can relate to and I liked how her relationship with Tim developed further during this novel. Although the book does deal with difficult and dark issues it is dealt with honestly and with sensitivity. The narrative also has plenty of humour along with the drama. I was hooked from page one and found myself completely immersed in the story. I hope there will be further books in this series.
