Secrets starts eighteen years earlier with the murder
of Beckett and Maggie Wilde, who leave behind triplet daughters
Savannah, Samantha and Sabrina, age 10. Right off the bat,
I knew there's a mystery to be solved: Who killed Maggie and
Beckett Wilde? And why?
Eight years later, the three teens are being cared for by
their grandfather, a widower. When Zach Tanner, the "bad
boy" of Midnight, saves Savannah from rape during the
senior prom, he becomes Savannah's hero. Despite his reputation,
she sees the brave and good man behind his façade.
Zach has spent years supporting his mother and younger brother
Josh, but now that Josh is older and his mother has remarried,
Zach decides to join the army. Though he and Savannah fall
in love, he disappears suddenly, leaving Savannah hurt.
Now Savannah is an Assistant District Attorney in Nashville,
Tennessee. When her boss learns of threats made against her,
he orders Savannah to take a two-month leave. She returns
to Midnight to pack up and sell the family home, but soon
learns that Zach is the new Chief of Police. All the past
hurt and love resurfaces when they meet. These emotions -
plus a solid mystery - made this book a pleasure to read.
Zach and Savannah are initially wary of each other, unable
to accept the love that lingers between them. I savored the
slow rekindling of their trust and love, the secrets which
are slowly revealed as Zach helps Savannah solve the mystery
behind her parents' deaths, while keeping her safe from harm.
Midnight Secrets is an excellent, spellbinding read -
a solid romance and tight mystery. I eagerly await the next
release in the series.
