Review: Secret Sisters

For this review, I chose Secret Sisters by Jayne Ann Krentz, which is my first book I have read by this author.

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
No one does romantic suspense better than Jayne Ann Krentz. Now, the New York Times bestselling author of Trust No Oneand River Road delivers a novel that twists and turns into a read that will leave you breathless.

Madeline and Daphne were once as close as sisters—until a secret tore them apart. Now it might take them to their graves.

They knew his name, the man who tried to brutally attack twelve-year-old Madeline in her grandmother's hotel. They thought they knew his fate. He wouldn't be bothering them anymore...ever. Still their lives would never be the same.

Madeline has returned to Washington after her grandmother's mysterious death. And at the old, abandoned hotel—a place she never wanted to see again—a dying man’s last words convey a warning: the secrets she and Daphne believed buried forever have been discovered.

Now, after almost two decades, Madeline and Daphne will be reunited in friendship and in fear. Unable to trust the local police, Madeline summons Jack Rayner, the hotel chain’s new security expert. Despite the secrets and mysteries that surround him, Jack is the only one she trusts...and wants.

Jack is no good at relationships but he does possess a specific skill set that includes a profoundly intimate understanding of warped and dangerous minds. With the assistance of Jack's brother, Abe, a high-tech magician, the four of them will form an uneasy alliance against a killer who will stop at nothing to hide the truth....

This is my first book I have read by Jayne Ann Krentz and I want to read more from this author.  I love to read new to me authors.

Madeline and Daphne are reunited because of a major event that happened when they were kids.  Madeline has to return to the island that her and her grandmother used to live.  Her grandmother passed away and Madeline needs to get their old hotel ready to sale, but people do not want her back.  Her grandmother hired a security firm, which I give credit for the protection that Madeline needed to her grandmother.  Without this security firm, things could be different.

I was not expecting so much from this book, but I am so glad I did.  All of this kept me guessing during the entire book.  Who did that?  Why?    
Intense at times
Old Friends catching up
Unexpected Twists

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
Review coming next: Love, Lost, and Found by Jean C. Joachim and Ben Tanner
