SECRETS SHE KNEW by D.L. Wood, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"She would spend the rest of her life wishing she hadn't."

Wishing she hadn't . . . . . found the dead body of a fellow classmate at the age of fifteen. The memories still haunt Boston police detective Danielle Lake, so much so that she rarely returns to her hometown of Skye, Alabama. And Dani has never gone back to the scene of the crime, where she is certain that her testimony only served to send the wrong man to prison.

What led her towards the honeysuckle vine along the river again on this occasions was an overflow of grief, what made Dani notice the old shed just a few yards away led her to an amazing discovery. Maybe now the case could be re-opened and true justice would be served. But local law enforcement isn't all that keen on helping her; there are a lot of people in Skye, Alabama who want bygones to be bygones; and after all, the case is closed.

That young victim; "There was no end to the secrets she knew."

What a clever story! With her clear, concise overlay of facts, clues, and wrong conclusions, the author has spun a tale that uses every tool at her disposal; engaging characters, an interesting plot, and hefty dose of "what"???????

BackCover Blurb:
Boston police detective Dani Lake dreads returning to her small hometown of Skye, Alabama, for her ten-year high school reunion--and not just for the normal reasons.

At only fifteen, Dani tragically discovered the body of her murdered classmate, setting in motion the process that led to the unjust conviction of her dear friend and an unshakable burden of guilt she carries to this day. So when new evidence surfaces during her trip home which suggests the truth Dani's always suspected, she embarks on a mission to expose the real killer, aided by Skye detective Chris Newton--who happens to be the man Dani's best friend is dying to set her up with, and also the only person who believes her.

But when Dani pushes too hard, someone pushes back, endangering Dani and those closest to her as she unearths secrets deeper and darker than she ever expected to learn--secrets that may bring the truth to light, if they don't get her killed first.

Thrilling, clean suspense and mystery laced with romance and faith.
A Secrets and Lies Suspense Novel.
