Secrets Never Die by Laurie Lewis is a fantastic mystery that is full of drama, suspense, danger, action, intrigue, twists, secrets, lies, cover-ups, heartache, questions, discoveries, and cleverly woven details. I always look forward to reading anything Ms. Lewis produces, and this book was no different. This is definitely my favourite of all her books that I have read, so far. I was completely absorbed by the story and was trying to figure it all out before anything was revealed. There is quite a lot going on in the story, with lots of details, and inter-connected elements which were a little hard to keep track of at times, but I soon got in the groove and loved unravelling the puzzle.
Tallie Brown has just lost her mother and has been left with many questions she needs answers to. So, she embarks on a journey of discovery which leads her to Cutler’s Ridge where the story really takes off. The more she ‘investigates’ the more questions arise. Her world is shaken, and her mettle and emotions are tested to the limit. Little does she know going in that things will take quite a dangerous turn. There are secrets and cover-ups, and much to uncover on her quest for answers.
Jackson James had a promising journalistic career and was on-track to great things, when it was all snatched away, and he has been living with the consequences of that bad decision ever since. When an opportunity to redeem himself comes to his attention, he jumps at the chance. Finding himself in Cutler’s Ridge on the trail of a ‘hot’ story. There he crosses paths with Tallie- and so the mystery begins.
This is such a clever and suspenseful story, and I really enjoyed how Ms. Lewis pulled and twisted the tale, keeping the tension quite gripping. I loved the characters- they worked really well together. I would love to read more about them in future books. Perhaps they could have their own ‘investigation’/mystery series. 😊 Hint, hint Ms. Lewis. 😊
Highly recommended- definitely worth your time and money to read!!! Can’t wait to see what Ms. Lewis does next!

Thank you, Laurie Lewis!

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a tale that has a slew of misdirection and incomplete information. The story while interesting seemed to move forward very slowly. There are two stories unfolding. I struggled with this one holding my attention. I could easily put it down for a couple days and not really rush to get back to it. It does have its page turning moments but most of the middle just seems to be information gathering and not too much happens. We get to know more of the towns people and try to figure out Jackson’s reason for being there and who his contact really is.

This has a ton of characters. Some are helpful others are secretive and not helpful. Even the not sharing can be helpful to this story. Tallie has an analytical mind and is able to work through because of her upbringing.

This isn’t my first book by this author. For some reason this one just didn’t work for me.

Somehow Lewis has snuck into my life and beat me over the head with a mallet because I don’t know how I haven’t read more of her work before now. But suffice it to say she is on my “buy it all now” list! This book was brilliant! I simply have no words to describe how much I enjoyed these pages. It has the right combination of intrigue, suspense. The main characters were well developed and complex and relatable. Even the setting was a character on its own with plenty to say. I loved every page and cannot wait to read more. Simply brilliant!

SECRETS NEVER DIE by Laurie Lewis

5+++++ AMAZINGLY AWESOME Stars

I just don’t know where to begin with this review. Laurie Lewis has sat within the top of my “favorite authors ever” list since the first book I read by her, and that has not changed and I don’t think ever will. Each book is different, there is no pattern to her storylines and when I open a book that she has written I make sure I can read it in its entirety because that is what normally happens.

Secrets Never Die had me all twisted up, it was a never ending roller coaster ride constantly having me speculating the next move and finally just giving up and enjoying the ride. Being completely hooked happened on like page 1 and it never let up from there. The storyline was so unique and so precise with no stones left unturned, I was left with no questions or confusion, just simply wanting more! I did not want this story to end. I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I said I never got confused while reading because there were so many dips and curves along the way but it just took sitting and lining everything up in my mind to keep me on track. I can not even try to sum up what happened in this book except to say that the characters were amazing. I loved some, I liked some, and I strongly disliked some and there were a few parts where they made me smile. Suspense with a good mystery is one of my favorite genres and Miss Lewis hit this one out of the park.

I would love more from this town and these characters, I would love to know how the trip to Idaho turned out, but for now I’m going to go ahead and allow this story to end in my mind the way I want it to 🙂

Highly recommend this and anything by this author. She is truly amazing and sets the bar high with every book and then meets it or beats it on the next.

I never hesitate to pick up one of this author’s stories. This story is full of action and drama. I loved being pulled into this story from the beginning and not being able to put it down until the end. The characters really made the story come to life and they really just messed well together. Tallie goes in search of answers to questions about her life. Jackson also finds himself off in search of unanswered questions. How many concidences can there be in one small town? A must read!

Secrets Never Die
By: Laurie Lewis
5 out of 5 stars

The story Secrets Never Die by Laurie Lewis is a romantic/suspense book. I loved reading it. The story pulled me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go until the final page. It is a book that includes mystery and secrets. It is a story that had me at times quickly turning pages to find out what happened next. I enjoyed reading about the characters of Tallie Brown and Jackson James. Tallie is a woman who is strong, intelligent, and stubborn. When her mother unexpectedly dies, Tallie finds that she may have had a secret life. Will Tallie find the answers to the questions that she has? Jackson is a reporter whose past is having an effect on his future. He finds himself chasing another story seeking the road to redemption. Both Tallie and Jackson find themselves in the small town of Cutler’s Ridge. What will happen when the stories that they are chasing begin to overlap? What does the future hold for Tallie and Jackson? Read this book to find out. This is a story that is an example of why I love suspense books. You are taken on a journey that moves at a good pace and sparks your imagination and your ability to put clues together. Each one of the additional characters has their own part to play in the story and I couldn’t see the book without any of them. This is a book that I highly recommend reading.

Tallie Brown’s life has never made sense. Raised in isolation by her mother, Julia, Tallie was dragged suddenly and without explanation from one third-world outpost to another until life normalized seven years ago when Julia took a position on a mountaintop in the Pacific northwest. But when Julia unexpectedly dies, Tallie uncovers clues suggesting that Julia had a secret life.
Journalistic phenom Jackson James is still recovering from the devastating mistake that flatlined his promising career. Now he’s paying the price, working as the editor of a syrupy community rag in a posh D.C. suburb. But when the very man who destroyed him drops a tantalizing lead about a potential D.C. scandal, the reporter sees his chance for redemption and sets off to chase the story.
Jackson’s investigation leads him to Cutler’s Ridge, a dying Virginia coal town, and directly into the path of the mysterious and beautiful Tallie. As these two mistrustful loners follow their leads, their stories begin to intertwine until they reach an alarming conclusion something terrible happened in Cutler’s Ridge. As they doggedly pursue the story, the town’s cold reception spirals into threats and danger, proving that there are those who will stop at nothing to keep the past hidden forever because secrets never die.
