I just love Laura Griffin. The mystery/thriller/romance genre that she writes in is so unique from all the other thrillers I read and I always enjoy her stories. I won a copy of Desperate Girls last year in a Goodreads giveaway (the first book in this series) and absolutely fell in love. So I knew I had to read the next in the series, Her Deadly Secrets.
This cover speaks to me so much. I think it’s fantastic and really draws your eye in. Every time I see the cover for this book I do a double take because it’s pretty breathtaking.
But beyond the cover, the story itself is wonderful. Wolfe Security is enlisted to protect a private investigator whose life is in danger. She was hired by a prominent physician’s defense team to investigate a case in which he’s accused of murdering his wife. But when they find themselves in the middle of a bloodbath where one of their own is killed, they must enlist the security group to provide protection from the unknown assassin.
Laura Griffin’s stories are always such a slow burn which are usually not my favorite because they tend to be on the boring side. But she has this way of keeping the story moving and keeping the reader reading with her storytelling abilities. The mysteries are always well thought out and keep me on my toes. But to top it all off, the romance is always icing on the cake for me. In a genre that’s usually dark and twisty, she injects romantic elements that give the story a unique flare that I really enjoy.
I will say that I think the romance had a little more sexual tension in Desperate Girls so I think I enjoyed that relationship a tad more. But the relationship in Her Deadly Secrets was still steamy and enjoyable at the end of the day.
If you haven’t read Laura Griffin’s work, I would highly recommend it. She’s become a “must read” author for me and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
