Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book.

Detecting Secrets by Sami A. Abrams is the third book in her Deputies of Anderson County series.

I’ve been looking forward to this story since I learned it was about Sheriff Dennis Monroe. I have loved the interaction between him and his deputies in past books, and in this one we get to see that all the more.

This book also has a K-9! Charlotte is a teen pregnancy counselor, but also does search and rescue with her air-scent dog. She’s a strong, practical woman and I loved seeing her and her dog in action, especially in those first few chapters.

There is a challenging thread in this book in that babies and teen mothers are being targeted. But it makes you root for Charlotte and Dennis to find and help the missing kids.

If you enjoy romantic suspense, then definitely grab a copy of Detecting Secrets.
