Unexpectedly reunited after six years, high school sweethearts Devin Shanahan and Grace Harrington cross paths and have a whirlwind wedding. A lot can change in six years, however, and they must figure out how to make their two independent lives mesh.

Unable to disclose his CIA job to his new wife, when Devin is assigned a top-secret mission to Hong Kong, he tells Grace part of the truth: that he is going to work abroad for six months in finance. But when the mission turns deadly and Devin doesn't know whom to trust, he must make the most difficult decision of his life in an effort to keep Grace safe. Will the seeds of deception prove destructive to their newly formed marriage? And will the love that brought them together be the very thing their enemies use to tear them apart?

My Review

KEPT SECRETS starts off as a whirlwind romance that is fun and sweet and slowly builds into a suspenseful story that had me on the edge of my seat in the end. A unique plot and likable characters make for an engaging story. Those who enjoy their suspense on the lighter side, should enjoy this story.

I have enjoyed all of this author's stories and have read almost all that she's written, so I had fairly high expectations going into this one. It moves at a fairly steady pace until things start happening about half-way and then really pick up at the end. I enjoyed the story, but had a few issues. I didn't see the breadcrumbs or the trail for why things were happening and how they were happening, which left me a little disconnected with the story. Some things also seemed implausible, which normally I don't find in this author's stories. Those were kind of big hangups for me because I didn't see the why or feel the movement of the story. It was like there was some momentum there, but it didn't invite me in, if that makes sense. I still enjoyed it. At the beginning, I loved the romance, and towards the end, I loved the action.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I wanted more from this story. Great beginning and ending with some lack in execution, which is unusual for this author.

Content: Some violence, but clean.
