Rating:  4.5 Stars

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from InkSlinger PR and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


Secrets and lies have a way of weaving a deadly web. Returning home from his last deployment shouldn’t have been complicated, but Jace Kendall was immediately drawn into a murder investigation that hits a little too close to home. The last thing he should be doing was reigniting old passions that should have been kept buried, but he’s never been a guy who plays by the rules.
Shae has suffered for twelve years without knowing why her sister disappeared. The long-awaited answers are now within reach, and she’ll have no choice but to trust the one man who knows more than he’s telling.
It isn’t long before Jace and Shae are lost in the mystery of solving a case that’s long gone cold. When they find the answers they’ve been looking for, a darkness is unveiled that will leave one of them in the crosshairs of a psychopath.

My Thoughts:

Just a little warning.  Don’t read the beginning of this story before going to bed because it may just give you nightmares.  Another possibility is that it will get you hooked and you’ll end up reading instead of sleeping.  Bit it will certainly have you sit up and take notice.

Jace Kendall gives us a gentle reminder of the mystery that surrounds this series.  Shae Irwin feels responsible for things that happened in the past.  What’s nice about this story is seeing friends learning to reconnect after years apart.  The sad part is what precipitates this reunion.  But it’s also the reason why I couldn’t put this book down.  Another reason is because of a character that doesn’t really say anything but that won’t stop you from wanting to know more about her.

The mystery continues from the previous books in the series so in order to thoroughly enjoy the mystery it must unfold from the beginning.  So you do not want to skip around but read the books in order.  It’s also a way to get to know Jace’s family.  I won’t lie, there are times where I get frustrated with mysteries but that’s because I’m terrible at solving them.  But this is a series where I don’t mind that.  I like the fact that things get revealed slowly.  It’s one reason why I keep going back for more.  The ending had me raising my eyebrows.  One reason is the most obvious but the second, and more important reason is that the author isn’t finished with this series yet – and that made me very happy.  The bad part is, I’ll have to wait until September – summer is going to drag on forever.

About the Keys to Love Series:

Their homecoming wasn’t so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave twelve years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family’s legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren’t prepared for what awaited them—an unforgivable sin that has been hidden for twelve long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock.
