When Gracie’s house is broken into late one night she assumes her house was chosen at random. But, when the burglar confronts her looking for “the key” she realizes her paranoid patient may have been right, someone is after them.
Detective Nate and Psychiatrist Gracie have just enough history to make their relationship engrossing. The heartbreak they’ve each experienced provides for deep and emotional character connection. The first three-fourths of A Secret to Die For is incredibly well done, the suspense of the attacks is unwound and the connection between Nate and Gracie is built upon. However, as the book begins to climax the finale seems to undermine the detailed build up, wrapping too quickly and neatly not to feel “corny.”
