Kept Secrets by Traci Hunter Abramson {Blog Tour Review with Giveaway}

Kept Secrets by Traci Hunter Abramson
Paperback, 288 pages
Published October 5th 2016 

Unexpectedly reunited after six years, high school sweethearts Devin Shanahan and Grace Harrington cross paths and have a whirlwind wedding. A lot can change in six years, however, and they must figure out how to make their two independent lives mesh.

Unable to disclose his CIA job to his new wife, when Devin is assigned a top-secret mission to Hong Kong, he tells Grace part of the truth: that he is going to work abroad for six months in finance. But when the mission turns deadly and Devin doesn't know whom to trust, he must make the most difficult decision of his life in an effort to keep Grace safe. Will the seeds of deception prove destructive to their newly formed marriage? And will the love that brought them together be the very thing their enemies use to tear them apart?


My Review: 5 Stars

Devin and Grace, his high school girlfriend, have a quick wedding after being reunited and life couldn't be more perfect--until Devin gets his master's degree and finds himself on assignment in Hong Kong, halfway around the world from his new wife. And the worst part is, he can't even tell her what he's really doing.  

There's no way that I could handle the life of a spy, but I sure love reading about these suspenseful situations. It's ironic that I've recently learned of a few friends who have had secrets in their marriages. Secrets can be harmful and they can be bad, but who would think they could be downright dangerous? As Devin struggles to uncover who wants him dead, Grace is dealing with an intense situation of her own. This book had me on the edge of my seat and what makes it that much better is that these characters are real and normal, just everyday people. The thought that this could really happen is creepy, but that's what hooked me and reeled me in.

As the suspense reaches it's climax, I was still grasping at straws for a motive and a suspect. Although clues are given along the way, I couldn't make things connect in my mind, which is what I absolutely love about a mystery suspense thriller. I love this author's work and wasn't disappointed with this story at all. Bring on the next one soon, please!

Content: mild violence (attempted murder, kidnapping, etc); mild romance (kissing, mild innuendo).
