My rating: 5 of 5 stars
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Keeley Stevens’s sister LeeAnn was murdered, stuffed in the trunk of Tucker Rivendale’s car. She’d still be alive if Tucker’s parole officer, Mick Hudson, hadn’t allowed him to roam free of a tracking device. He’d escaped, but now Tucker’s back in Silver Creek and he seems to be after Keeley. He wants what’s his, Keeley’s precious daughter June, her sister’s special needs daughter, Tucker’s child. Keeley will not allow him to take LeeAnn’s precious daughter, the child he didn’t seem to want anyway. Upon learning of LeeAnn’s pregnancy he’d urged her not to keep the baby. Furthermore, Mick Hudson, A broken man whose wife left him and didn’t bother to tell him he’d had a son that died before he’d even known about him; the man ultimately responsible for LeeAnn’s death, is everywhere she turns, trailing her as though he’s some cop who’s in charge of protecting her life, a job he clearly sucks at. But how can she protect herself and June from Tucker? Does she really need Mick Hudson’s protection after all? Dana Mentink is continually gaining my respect and admiration as a suspense writer. Secret Refuge was a riveting, fast-paced, action packed, page turner. There were so many things I loved about Secret Refuge. Some of my favorite things were that it was suspenseful and had twists and turns that kept me guessing. There was a sweet little romance that was tastefully executed in the storyline. I also liked the mention of various bird species since Keeley Stevens was an Avian Photographer. And I truly appreciated that there was no profanity or extreme violence of any kind. Secret Refuge was a great, quick read that I highly recommend.
I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
