Buried Secrets

Should some secrets remain buried?
Dusty has always been a hothead, far more impulsive than her twin, Nick, the calm, cool and collected one of the pair. But Nick is dead, found murdered in their local cemetery, and Dusty simply can’t rest until she finds out who-or what-has killed her brother.
Sure the local authorities aren’t being straight with her-or anyone else-about what’s been going on in their little upper Michigan town, Dusty delays going off to college for a semester, defying her father and stepmother and taking a job in the local bar to start doing some digging.
Her focus soon fixes on Shane, her brother’s best friend and the town bad boy. The tension and rivalry between Dusty and Shane has always been palpable and sparks fly as the two collide. Dusty finds herself sinking in deeper with Shane and the mystery of what happened to her brother-and a lengthening list of victims-grows even stranger.
When everything comes to a head, Dusty focuses on one thing: What happened the night her brother was killed in the cemetery? She’s sure Shane is keeping a secret and she’s determined to find out what it is, one way or another.

Oh Emme Rollins, how I love thee.  Let me count the ways.  I’ll start with the heroes in your books. *sigh* I wish they were real.  First it was Dale in Dear Rockstar (read my review here) and now it is Shane in Buried Secrets (a new addition to my book boyfriend shelf).

Next it’s the stories, the ones that leave us entranced for a few hours as we run away to this world you’ve created.  They give us the inability to actually put the book down when we should be doing something else (like sleeping – who needs sleep?)

I can’t forget your heroines, they are so much like us when we were that age.  They are real. We can feel their pain, relate to it on some level. We also totally get their attraction to the bad boy.

This is another amazing book from Emme Rollins.  Shane, the bad boy, Dusty, the good girl, and a murdered brother who lays between them.  Nick always sheltered Dusty from Shane, he didn’t want his little sister mixed up with the bad boy (his best friend) in town.  Now that he is gone, Dusty wants to get to the bottom of his murder.  The explanation from the local sheriff doesn’t ring true to her.

I was up and down right along with Dusty and Shane. Emme is so good at bringing those emotions out in the reader, making us feel what her characters are feeling.

I’m afraid to go too much father because I don’t want to give spoilers at all.

It was just an awesome read. 

I loved it.

I loved Shane.

I loved Dusty.

Except for like 30 seconds when my mouth dropped down because of what she was doing.

I had a feeling it was going to go there but man…. I really hoped it wouldn’t.

I’d tell you what it was, but then why would you read it?

You should just grab a copy and read it yourself.

You won’t regret it.
