Secrets Unlocked (The James Gang)

C.F. Francis

Savannah Finch has had a rough life and it seems to be getting worse. Someone has been sending her a charm every year, and she has no idea who it could be. When she is attacked and ends up in some very deep water, she is washed up on shore and found by a savior. Police Detective Rick Wilcowski finds Savannah washed up on the beach, and is immediately drawn into a dangerous situation. Savannah has a hard time trusting people, but there is something about Detective Wilcowski that she is drawn to. Rick tries to fight his feelings for Savannah, but the more time they spend together, the deeper his feelings become. When they’re thrown into a perilous situation, they must stick together to ensure their survival. 

“Secrets Unlocked” is a great suspense with a lot of action and excitement. Savannah and Rick are two interesting characters and their dynamic is attention-grabbing. There is intrigue and questions as to who is sending Savannah the charms, and then the story kicks up several notches and doesn’t let up until the last page. There is tension and some searing-hot action that will have the e-readers being used as a cooling fan. C.F. Francis has written a great book that has a lot going on within it. There are a few aspects of telling rather than showing, but that ultimately doesn’t take away from the story. A story that is thrilling, suspenseful, and one that is a must read for the cold nights.
