Everyone has a secret, one so chilling only one other person on the face of the earth knows. You just hope and pray your friend will take this secret to their grave rather than expose you. Jayne Ann Krentz’s latest novel, Secret Sisters, is about this kind of deep abiding friendship, one that transcends all forces that batter against it. 

Jayne Ann Krentz's Secret Sisters


Madeline Chase and Daphne Knight shared a secret 18 years ago on Cooper Island in a hotel called Aurora Point. Since the death of her grandmother, much responsibility has been placed upon Madeline. Yet when she receives an urgent summons via a phone call from the caretaker of the hotel, Tom Lomax, Madeline drops everything to see him.

Upon her arrival, Tom’s last dying words are, ” I failed. . .Sunrise. You always liked my sunrises.” (26) Now Madeline, Daphne, Jack (Madeline’s hotel security expert) and his brother Abe must find a killer who will stop at nothing to keep their secrets hidden.

Krentz employs beautiful imagery and masterful plotting in this novel. She brings you to the edge of the cliff only to drop you down, then ratchets up the suspense until you can’t wait to experience the various events through each character’s mind and heart.

The subtle nuances of emotion between Jack and Madeline crackle with tension and honesty. I really enjoyed reading Secret Sisters and can’t wait to see if Krentz carries these characters into another future novel.
