REVIEW: The Secrets We Keep by J.S. Ellis is book three of a trilogy. Book one is The Secret They Kept and book two is Secrets and Lies. I’ve enjoyed all the books that I have read by this author. She always keeps me interested in her stories.
The characters in this series start out as somewhat normal. As normal as most of us are. Emily is the main character and I really liked her a lot. She gets involved with a circle of friends that don’t really seem to be her type. They are all interesting and from my point of view are a little far out. They are models and photographers. Emily is a freelance graphic artist and works from home. It leaves her available at odd hours and she gets entangled with these odd friends. Lucien is the beautiful boy across the street. I say boy because he is younger than Emily. There is an attraction that I don’t think Emily even understands. I will say that the is a full cast of characters and some of them I really liked. As with most books, I think you’ll find some you don’t.
You really want to read all three books. I think if you pick up book two or three, you will have a hard time figuring out what is going on. I remember having a short time of putting it all together with book two. I did with this book also. I had to remember who everyone was and how they tie together. I think that now all three books are released it would be a good idea to acquire them all and binge read them. Keeps everything fresh. I found it a little hard to remember all the details at the beginning and it wasn’t an easy entrance into each book. I was able to work it all out, it just took me a bit.
Overall, if you like quirky characters, a good mystery and a mystery that actually changes over time, I think you will like these books. They are geared to a little younger reader than me but, it doesn’t throw us older folks out of the park either. There is something for everyone! Until next time…Happy Reading!

SYNOPSIS: Emily is trying her best to put the past behind her. Her focus is on her career and making her new apartment home.
Then… a wedding invitation arrives.
Sasha is getting married. Knowing Lucien would be there, Emily hesitantly decides to attend. The night seems to go well, with plenty of dancing and drinking. Emily wakes up the next morning in Jan’s hotel room with the mother of hangovers, distorted memories, and a plethora of bruises she can’t explain.
Things only get more bizarre when the police knock on the door. Liam has been found dead, Sasha is arrested, and Lucien is missing. But someone out there knows the truth and launches into a deadly game of mouse with Emily and Jan as their target.
Can they discover the truth before the body count rises?
