Hidden Falls is exactly as Samantha Parker left it—small, insular, and prone to gossip. Eighteen years have passed since she witnessed her brother’s murder, but she’s still the talk of the town. Until a handsome child psychologist with haunting memories of his own arrives.

Dr. Ethan McClane isn’t exactly a newcomer. If it weren’t for his latest case, he’d never set foot back in Hidden Falls. Thankfully, no one seems to recognize him as the troubled teen from years past. Not even Sam, the delightfully sharp and sexy high school chemistry teacher he can’t stop thinking about.

When Sam and Ethan work together to help one of her students, sparks ignite. But Sam’s hazy memories of a long-ago night concern Ethan, and unlocking the repressed images reveals a dark connection between them. As the horrors of the past finally come to light, their relationship isn’t the only thing in danger. A killer will strike again to keep an ugly secret hidden. This time no one will be safe.

My Review:

Genre: Romance – Suspense
Stand-alone: Yes
Part of a Series – Yes  Book 1 of the Deadly Secrets Series
POV: Samantha and Ethan with a few other thrown in the mix every once in a while to add to the tension
Steam Level: Quite warm at times

This is the first Elisabeth Naughton book I’ve read and i was pleasantly surprised.  I had heard that this book was good and I wasn’t disappointed.  This book was suspenseful and thrilling from the start.  While I figured out one of the secrets pretty early on I was pleased at the reveal.  The twists and turns were very well done.  Each reveal added more questions and tension until it all came to a gripping conclusion.  If you love romantic suspense like I do and  are looking for a new author to try, I definitely recommend this book and Elisabeth Naughton.  I can’t wait to read more of her work.  I look forward to reading the rest of the books planned in this series.
