Title of mystery book: Secrets Can Be Deadly
The story takes place in rural Iowa from 1968-1980. A dilapidated red barn is a key element.
Tragedy strikes the lives of two children in 1968. A house fire kills Sam’s father and brother. Three weeks later, Sam’s mother disappears and Sam must grow up with strict grandparents. Mason’s mother and sister die in a fiery automobile accident. Mason’s father moves them to a new city in Iowa to forget about the life they left behind.
Twelve years later, Mason receives mysterious notes and phone calls about his past. Mason searches for the truth about the family he never knew, only to discover secrets that force him to choose between his father and the woman he loves.
Mason and Sam set out on separate quests to determine who is telling the truth, who is keeping secrets, and who must die.
This was a great read! Less like puzzle pieces, the pages in this book were more like onion layers being peeled back to reveal the complete story. There was enough intrigue and discovery to make the book “a page turner.” The story doesn’t disappoint. – Laura Gentry
