Book Review – Dead Secret, Catherine Deveney

I found myself reading this book really quickly as I wanted to find out what had happened to Rebecca’s mother and what the mystery was. In a lot of ways, it was more a story of dealing with the loss of a parent than a murder/mystery and I thought it was very well written,
certainly easy to read.

It was only after I finished the book that I began to find it a bit disappointing – while I was
reading it I was completely caught up in what Rebecca did after the death of her father and anxious to know more. But all the tension built up during her stay in Inverness seemed to seep away again and the ending almost seemed an anti-climax.

Having said all that, I am going to seek some more of the author’s books because I really
enjoyed the writing and as a study of the daughter’s feelings of loss and alienation it was excellent, but the murder storyline just didn’t quite hit the spot for me.
