Secrets and lies have a way of weaving a deadly web. Returning home from his last deployment shouldn’t have been complicated, but Jace Kendall was immediately drawn into a murder investigation that hits a little too close to home. The last thing he should be doing was reigniting old passions that should have been kept buried, but he’s never been a guy who plays by the rules.
Shae has suffered for twelve years without knowing why her sister disappeared. The long-awaited answers are now within reach, and she’ll have no choice but to trust the one man who knows more than he’s telling.
It isn’t long before Jace and Shae are lost in the mystery of solving a case that’s long gone cold. When they find the answers they’ve been looking for, a darkness is unveiled that will leave one of them in the crosshairs of a psychopath.
The mystery of the series started with Unlocking Fear (Read My Review) – and it is one that I am eagerly waiting to see how Ms. Layne actually ties up the mystery altogether.
In Unlocking Lies, Jace Kendall, the next of the Kendall siblings is to come back home – he might not know what to do with his life anymore; but he especially doesn’t really want to be involved in a murder investigation.
But that plan goes to heck when Shae Cavanaugh comes back to town. It was Shae’s sister who was one of the first girls to go missing yet to be considered a runaway – and now she is back to see if she can help in the investigation; if not for anything but to bring closure to herself and her parents.
This is “almost” second – chance romance – for there is history between Jace and Sha; yet nothing actually ever happened between them; yet that history is the reason why there is a bit of angst in the romance between them. And like the previous books in the series; the romance and the relationship is not at the fore front of the book, but it is the foundation it, and I definitely enjoyed it!
Though I am still kind of irritated the we came so close to actually knowing who the perpetrator is; and yet we haven’t been able to! I can’t wait to see how the author goes in the next book!
