Read what everyone's saying about Buried Secrets
'I absolutely ADORED this book! Addictive and thrilling, this was a roller coaster of a read with many twists all of which I did not see coming. What I loved was how an ordinary situation... escalated into a heart-stopping, palpably tense, extremely fast paced and intense story that I could not put down. Amazing!... Love this author's writing style. Cannot wait for more!' Renita D'Silva
'A story which kept me thoroughly entertained from start to finish... Its hook is the naive innocence of Brett; the attempts of Russo to stay on the straight and narrow and still protect his wife and daughter; the conniving drive of Meg. To have captured all of these characters so well is a testimony to the writing of T.J. Brearton.' Nigel Adams Bookworm
'This tense thriller starts out with alternating storylines. The two seemingly have nothing to do with each other, but the author begins to slowly and intently weave them together as the story progresses. This is masterfully crafted so as to ratchet up the tension... There are plenty of twists and turns that will keep you guessing throughout the book, right up until the very end. The chapters end in a way that make you feel like you must keep reading to see what happens next, so be prepared to stay up late into the night.' Goodreads Reviewer
