#Authorproblems That’s what the excitement around Keith Young was…a problem—Kinda. Lol!
When I started to hear request for his story, I panicked. Authors don’t want to disappoint their readers. And being new to the published scene…Well, you get the picture.
After the release of Buried Cold Case Secrets, many readers told me they wanted Keith’s story. In fact, the overwhelming response puzzled me. What had I done to create such a buzz about Jason’s partner? And of course, I had to ask why?
The general answer I received…Keith’s a nice guy and the perfect partner.
I have to admit, I got a little nervous since I had already written his story. And I worried if I’d done his character justice?
However, after writing Buried Cold Case Secrets, I knew Keith had to have his own story. He’s such a great guy and needed his happily ever after. So, I dove in and asked, what would happen if he made a huge mistake? Not just a physical one, but a heart one.
By the time I finished, I loved seeing Keith and Amy move past their poor choices and hurt to find acceptance and love. The perfect ending to Keith’s struggles.
All that to say, I hope you love Keith and Amy’s story as much as I do. #TeamKeith
“Cool air blasted from the car vents. The AC struggled to stay ahead o fthe rising summer temperatures. Amy Baker maneuvered through the afternoon traffic, whispering a prayer for the millionth time that the person responsible for her sister’s death hadn’t discovered his mistake: he’d killed the wrong twin.”
This opening paragraph to the book sets up a suspenseful story that does not stop until almost the end of the book. The action was plentiful, and the scenes were unpredictable. The culprit did keep me guessing as well.
I am really glad that Sami Abrams wrote a sequel to Buried Cold Case Secrets. Deputy Keith Baker is mentioned in that book and makes a great lead in this story. (I also look forward to reading the next book (Detecting Secrets) in the Deputies of Anderson County series. I have enjoyed the characters and am definitely curious about why the next main character acts the way that he does.) I always like getting to know characters in multiple books.
One thing I did not like was some of the repetition. One main character had made a mistake. A rather major one. This choice is mentioned over and over and over again. Raher than simply being an issue, it became a fixation and an obstacle. While by the end there was some resolution, I started to get annoyed.
Perhaps this is a trend for this publisher as I read another Love Inspired book with a similar overemphasis of a problem. Even though I liked the authors, this caused me to want to get past part of the story to find the conclusion. I may not be able to read as many LI books.
That being said, there were many redeeming qualities. I definitely enjoyed the characters. The mystery seemed plausible, and the situations seemed like that they could happen. I like how this story happens in a small town.
I did receive an advanced copy of this book. I wanted to read and review it. All opinions are my own. Overall rating: 4.2 stars
