How Secrets Die Mass Market Paperback – June 28, 2016 by Marta Perry

As Laurel Ridge embraces a stranger hungry for answers, a sinister truth is awakened 

A hard-hitting reporter, Kate Beaumont unearths the deepest lies and brings harsh truths to light. But the story that lures her to the gentle town of Laurel Ridge, Pennsylvania, is closer to her heart than anyone knows. The details of her half brother’s sudden death have never made sense. She owes him justice, yet the one man who can help her is the stubborn sheriff she can’t stand.

Protecting his town is Mac Whiting’s top priority. Everything else—including pacifying a beautiful crusader on a mission best left resting in peace—is secondary. But as Kate’s search embeds her in his world and attracts a skilled criminal, she needs Mac’s protection. Drawn together by deadly secrets, they must find a way to trust each other before a killer silences them both.



Worth Getting  in Bed For? 

I like my mysteries with a little more grit to them. This was a perfectly good cozy mystery that kept me reading to the end. Although I did figure out the bad guy pretty quick, Perry develops her characters and leaves many to choose from without making it hard to keep up. This can be read as a stand alone but there are characters from the series who make appearances so knowing the history might enhance the enjoyment of reading this novel. There is a recipe for readers at the end. A success as a cozy mystery entry, but not necessarily my favorite.
