Can a secret be worse than a lie?

Every time Kate Duggan looks in a mirror she is confronted by her guilt; a long, red scar reminding her that she was ‘the one to walk away’ from the car accident. Not everyone was so lucky …

On the surface her fiancé Rob is supportive – but the reality is different. He’s controlling, manipulative and, if the phone call Kate overhears is anything to go by, he has a secret. But just how dangerous is that secret?

When Kate begins work at a firm of private investigators, she meets Ben Parker. His strong and silent persona is intriguing but it’s also a cover – because something devastating happened to Ben, something he can’t get over.

As Kate and Ben begin their first assignment, they become close. But, what they don’t realise is how close to home the investigation will bring them, or who will be hurt in the process …

Lynda Stacey

Lynda StaceyLynda, is a wife, step-mother and grandmother, she grew up in the mining village of Bentley, Doncaster, in South Yorkshire.

She is currently the Sales Director of a stationery, office supplies and office furniture company in Doncaster, where she has worked for the past 25 years. Prior to this she’d also been a nurse, a model, an emergency first response instructor and a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor … and yes, she was crazy enough to dive in the sea with sharks, without a cage.
Following a car accident in 2008, Lynda was left with limited mobility in her right arm. Unable to dive or teach anymore, she turned to her love of writing, a hobby she’d followed avidly since being a teenager.

Her own life story, along with varied career choices helps Lynda to create stories of romantic suspense, with challenging and unpredictable plots, along with (as in all romances) very happy endings.

Lynda joined the Romantic Novelist Association in 2014 under the umbrella of the New Writers Scheme and in 2015, her debut novel House of Secrets won the Choc Lit & Whole Story Audiobooks Search for a Star competition.

She lives in a small rural hamlet near Doncaster, with her ‘hero at home husband’, Haydn, whom she’s been happily married to for over 20 years.

    After leaving the London Metropolitan police force, Kate has returned home to Yorkshire where she is employed as a private investigator. She’s lost her confidence after a car accident that killed her brother and left her sister in a wheelchair, she herself has severe facial scars. During a routine inquiry, Kate learns that her ex-boyfriend is a dangerous thug and a member of a family of notorious drug dealers. This discovery puts her family and especially her disabled sister in extreme danger. There’s an immediate attraction between Kate and the boss’s son, Ben, another person with deep personal problems, who helps Kate regain her self-assurance and provide the love interest. Although a thriller, there are some very funny moments, especially towards the end.

    Lovely cover design that makes you want to read the book. I’m sure I joined with other readers at the beginning of the novel in wanting the heroine, Kate to get a better deal with her mother, boyfriend and self-image. Immediately warmed to Kate’s new boss and loved the first scene with Kate and Ben together. The story takes you on a journey through twists and turns with its various sub-plots. I got to one point where I kept sneaking away to read more to find out what would happen in the end. I enjoyed the use of different points of view to enable you to gain insights from different angles. I found myself getting quite tense towards the climax of the story. Gloria and Eric were my favourite sub-characters.

    A real page turner – a must read in my opinion, I really could not put this book down and read it in a couple of days at any opportunity I had. Tense moments and twists and turns entwine with wonderful characters, some I loved like Kate and others who I hated with a passion, such as Kate’s Fiancé Rob.
    I really felt for Kate, who following a car accident which proved fatal for a member of her family and life changing for others, has low self esteem due a nasty scar on her face. Starting her new job as a Private Investigator, after a period of recovery, Kate investigates a suspected drug dealer, with the bonus being she gets to work with a gorgeous guy called Ben.
    There are other characters such as Kate’s Mum, who is always full of put downs for Kate, however as the book progresses you get to understand her more and the beauty in Lynda’s writing is that she can change your feelings for a character from loathing to caring due to the finer details about a character.
    I fell a little in love with Ben who was kind, supportive and himself had a sad past but on the other side of the coin was Rob, full of secrets and lies, which slowly unravel throughout the book.
    I really loved this book, wonderfully well written, fantastic characters, romance, suspense, secrets, it has it all for me and I can’t wait to read more from Lynda in the future.

    I loved House of Secrets, a romantic suspense novel from Lynda Stacey, so was really delighted to be given a copy of Tell Me No Secrets in return for an honest review and it did not disappoint. I was drawn into Kate’s story from the very beginning and couldn’t put it down. Beautifully written characters, locations and plot. A lovely easy read with light touches, there are some darker characters and scenes which Lynda handles beautifully. It was a real joy to read from start to finish. I was actually sorry to come to the end and very much look forward to reading more from this author.
