What Kelli is Reading: The Patient’s Secret

Kelli. my daughter, has been getting some listening time in. She had carpal tunnel surgery recently and that’s given her a little extra time while she is recouping. It’s her right hand so stitching time is awkward…if at all. No doubt she will be back to it in no time. She had her left hand done about two years ago and she overdid it. Hopefully this time she spends more time relaxing to heal and less time doing too much.

The book Kelli picked is called The Patient’s Secret by Loreth Anne White.

Kelli writes: This book was really good!  There were so many connections that kept coming around and making themselves known–Almost to the point where it was hard to keep track of.  One thing that was surprising was that one of the stories that made up the main story seemed to just get dropped, which was a little disappointing, however, the rest of it was so good that I still think it is a good read!  Funny story about this one–I often listen to audiobooks during the day as it helps me stay a little focused and I end up being able to get lots more done.  My lovely children decided to be wild and loud just as I was finishing this book up, so I had to hide in the bathroom just to get the last few minutes in!  And no worries–They all ended up okay too!

Here is what Amazon had to say:
When the battered body of a female jogger is found beneath the cliffs of an idyllic coastal community, these perfect neighbors suddenly don’t seem so perfect…

Lily Bradley is a respected psychotherapist married to a distinguished professor. They live in a dream house with their two children in close-knit Story Cove. Lily lives a well-ordered life. Or so it seems. As a therapist, she knows everyone keeps things hidden. Even her.

Then sensual and free-spirited Arwen Harper rolls into town in her hand-painted VW van, her sixteen-year-old son riding shotgun. Overnight, Story Cove’s secrets are no longer safe. Because Arwen might know her new neighbors better than they know themselves.

Now someone is dead, and it looks like murder. Brutal and personal. The death invites the shrewd eye of Detective Rue Duval. Rue’s job is to expose secrets. But she’s also an expert at keeping them.

As the lives of three women become inexorably entwined, one thing is clear: when it comes to survival, ordinary people can do the most terrible things.”

Amazon readers give the book 4.5 stars. Kelli was thinking just a little less but still GOOD.

As of writing this the book was free for Kindle Unlimited readers. Whether you are an Unlimited user or not, uou can find the book HERE.
