Review: Keep No Secrets

Keep No Secrets
Keep No Secrets by Julie Compton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


KEEP NO SECRETS is an edge-of-your-seat, legal thriller with a little romance and a lot of mystery rolled into one very appealing package that is sure to appeal to a variety of readers.

I think it is safe to assume that everyone has made a decision at some point in life that you would love to be able to go back in time and do differently. As they say; “Hindsight is 20/20.” Decisions that are made everyday have the power to alter the course of the rest of your life. What if that decision involves telling a teensy, weensy, little white lie?

District Attorney, Jack Hilliard had a good life. He has a smart and beautiful wife, 2 wonderful children and a thriving career. Four years ago, when a one-night stand becomes public knowledge, he almost lost it all, but since that night, he has successfully repaired his reputation in the eye of the public. Although his wife has forgiven him, she has not forgotten about his indiscretion – I suppose that is something a spouse can never truly forget. Despite his marital blunder, Jack is inherently a good person and strives to “do the right thing,” but what happens when “the right thing” to do is not so black and white?

That was his life before the fateful night he made an emotional decision in an attempt to protect his son’s under aged girlfriend from the wrath of her own father. That was his life before that same under aged girlfriend accuses him of rape. That was his life before a series of “little white lies” were revealed and cast an ominous and dark shadow of doubt on his innocence. KEEP NO SECRETS kept me guessing from beginning to end and although I knew the truth, it was easy to pin Jack as “guilty” based on the information presented. Just as I thought that I had everything figured out, a new truth was revealed, successfully keeping my attention and leaving me feeling slightly off kilter throughout the entire novel.

KEEP NO SECRETS is an excellent reminder that no lie is a good lie. Ever. Even the most “innocent” lie told with the intention of protecting another has the potential to come back with a vengeance and wreck your life. You can bet your sweet ass that I will rethink telling even the most “innocent” little white lie in the future! If you have a penchant for mysteries and romance, then KEEP NO SECRETS might be the perfect book for you!
