Buried Secrets
Gail Barrett
Harlequin Romantic Suspense
ISBN:  978-0-373-27827-5
June 2013
Category Romance

This first book in a new trilogy about three runaway girls who witnessed a murder starts this series out with a BANG!  These girls have gone on to new identities and successful adult lives in obscurity.  In this novel, B.K. Elliot is a successful but reclusive photographer.  When her pictures is published, she comes to the attention of her powerful and abusive stepfather, whom she fled years before.  Sexy police detective Parker McCall figures that she might have some answers to his brother's death, which she apparently witnessed.

Parker begins a relationship with her fraught with secrets and misplaced loyalties.  This novel is incredibly action packed and filled with a developing hot romance between these two characters.  This author captures the feelings of childhood victims of abuse and her depictions of life on the streets are hauntingly realistic.  Her writing reflects an attention to plot that makes for a well done novel.  I can't wait to read the next two installments of this series that promises to be excellent.
