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....
Secret Sisters was a gradually building story that reeled you in slow and easy and then you discovered you were completely hooked.
Madeline has successfully worked by her grandmother’s side for years. An unexpected accident leaves Madeline grandmother dead and Madeline the heir to the group of hotels her grandmother had acquired.
For some reason, right before Madeline’s grandmother’s passing she hires a security firm expert, Jack Rayner.
Within this group of hotels, there is one that had been abandon for years. This hotel holds a horrible memory and an even bigger secret. Madeline is called by the hotel’s care taker and told that she is needed on site right away.
When Madeline arrives she discovers the care taker recently murdered and still in the abandon hotel. Now two people involved in their secret are dead and the it is too big of a coincidence for Madeline to believe they are not connected.
Calling in Jack goes against her grain, but Madeline soon finds herself engulfed in a mystery that has turned deadly.
Secret Sisters is a great romantic suspense. But it’s the twists and turns that will keep your head spinning. Best part, it kept me guessing to the end.
