How Secrets Die by Marta Perry - Review and Giveaway

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: June 28, 2016
Number of pages: 384
Genre: Mystery
Series: Whiting Trilogy #3

A hard-hitting reporter, Kate Beaumont unearths the deepest lies and brings harsh truths to light, but the story that lures her to the gentle town of Laurel Ridge, Pennsylvania, is closer to her heart than anyone knows. The details of her half brother's sudden death have never made sense. She owes him justice, yet the one man who can help her is the stubborn sheriff she can't stand.

Protecting his town is Mac Whiting's top priority. Everything else, including pacifying a beautiful crusader on a mission best left resting in peace, is secondary. But as Kate's search embeds her in his world and attracts a skilled criminal, she needs Mac's protection. Drawn together by deadly secrets, they must find a way to trust each other before a killer silences them both.

What did I think of this book:
Let me start by telling you that this is the third book in a series but it can be read as a stand alone book. I enjoy all the detail that this author puts into her books. She makes you feel a part of the story, like you are there trying to help solve the crime. There are some twists in this story so you are kept on the edge of your seat until the end. This is a little more series than a cozy mystery so it feels a little more "real". Threre is also a touch of romance in this story which for me just adds a little boost to the story. I also liked how the main characters (Kate and Mac) played off of each other. A fitting end to this series. 

About the author:
Marta Perry realized she wanted to be a writer at age eight, when she read her first Nancy Drew novel. A lifetime spent in rural Pennsylvania and her own Pennsylvania Dutch roots led Marta to the books she writes now about the Amish. When she’s not writing, Marta is active in the life of her church and enjoys traveling and spending time with her three children and six beautiful grandchildren.
