Summary

After uncovering a devastating secret, Casey McKay left her beloved hometown and pretended not to look back. For years, the truth her sisters hid from her has kept her away. Now, in desperate need of Casey's help, her sisters have hired a PI to find her.

As a private investigator, Ryan Keller is used to getting into sticky situations, but nothing could have prepared him for the likes of Ms. McKay. Unable to resist her appeal for help, Ryan returns with her to Blue Creek. Little do they know they are walking right into a deadly plot to destroy the McKay sisters.

The closer they get to the truth, the harder it is for them to resist temptation. But succumbing to their desires puts Ryan in the crosshairs of a vengeful foe. To save them, Casey must face her past and the secrets that have shaped her.

The Secrets that Shape Us

This books starts off a few years after the first one ends, but the blanks are filled in as we listen. Once again this family finds out that they have enemies from their pasts and will have to join together to solve the mystery and put an end to it all. It answers some questions you may have after the first book but does leave it open for more in the future.

Great plot and story

It is a great plot and story. However, I had a hard time understanding the characters. But by listening again, I now appreciate the story.

I really enjoyed this

I really enjoyed this, at first I thought I might not, but it took a wonderfully sweet turn fairly early on and it had me wrapped from then on. This story has the qualities I like on a romance story: a sweet romance with hot scenes, a well developed, believable story with mystery and excitement. This story was unexpected and enjoyable. I could not stop listening! In fact, I listened straight thru and couldn't sleep until it was finished. Looking forward to more of these stories.

Great audiobook

Great Audio book!. The Secrets that Shape Us has the potential to be a gripping story of suspense as the McKay sisters search for clues about who is out to get them. With a little more on that, this could've been an edge of your seat suspense. We even get the occasional creepy paragraph or two from the viewpoint of the villain.

I like the story!

I really loved the story. There is a lot of dialogue some that is necessary and some, not so much. While the suspense side of this one moves at a slower pace than I prefer, the romance between Ryan and Casey happens rather quickly. They seem to go from zero to all over each other in a blink. Once things start to come together and the villain is revealed, it does make sense. The bad guy is crazy, no doubt, but their reasons do have a twisted logic to them. I personally recommend this to those who loves suspense stories.

Great suspense and romance story!

Excellent read, in depth character description and easy to follow the story line. I look forward to reading other's by W.L. Brooks! This book has an extra little twist toward the end that leaves things open and while I didn't see the need for it, other than to set things up for another book, it was interesting to ponder. There were things I liked keep me interested.

Great narration.

The romance was a little rushed, I felt the author was working with a limit on story length and wish it could have played out a bit. The mystery was well done for this genre, not dwelling on dark detail or too gritty, but adding tension. Great narration.
