In the Dragon’s Eye is where I share the books I’ve got my acquisitive eye on: the ones I’m really excited about and hope to read and perhaps add to the hoard. I also link to “Waiting On” Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Cover links take you to Goodreads; all blurbs are also from Goodreads.
Secret Sisters, by Jayne Ann Krentz
Madeline and Daphne were once as close as sisters—until a secret tore them apart. Now it might take them to their graves.
They knew his name, the man who tried to brutally attack twelve-year-old Madeline in her grandmother’s hotel. They thought they knew his fate. He wouldn’t be bothering them anymore…ever. Still their lives would never be the same.
Madeline has returned to Washington after her grandmother’s mysterious death. And at the old, abandoned hotel—a place she never wanted to see again—a dying man’s last words convey a warning: the secrets she and Daphne believed buried forever have been discovered.
Now, after almost two decades, Madeline and Daphne will be reunited in friendship and in fear. Unable to trust the local police, Madeline summons Jack Rayner, the hotel chain’s new security expert. Despite the secrets and mysteries that surround him, Jack is the only one she trusts…and wants.
Jack is no good at relationships but he does possess a specific skill set that includes a profoundly intimate understanding of warped and dangerous minds. With the assistance of Jack’s brother, Abe, a high-tech magician, the four of them will form an uneasy alliance against a killer who will stop at nothing to hide the truth….
Why I want to read it:
I’ve compared Krentz’s romantic suspense novels to candy bars – delicious, addictive, and quickly devoured. She’s one of my auto-read authors in part because her books are just plain fun! They’re suspenseful but never so dark as to give me nightmares; the relationships are predictable but pleasing, and there’s always dusting of humor to keep things lively.

I actually picked this book up at BEA, but haven’t read it yet. I have read and loved Jayne Ann Krentz before, but I wasn’t sure if this one would be too much on the mystery side and not enough on the romance side. I might give it a try anyway.

It’s hard to tell from the blurb!

This is high up on my TBR as well and I think a candy bar is a good description for Krentz’s books!

I’m on the library hold list, but I’ll be out of town so I probably won’t get to read it until late January.

Perfect description of Krentz..and I think this one delivers perfectly.

Woots I love her too! She was one of the first I read back in the day and oh man I binged read her something fierce. I’m working on this one today and so far (5 chapters in) I’m loving it 🙂 Hope you enjoy it too Lark!

I first stumbled on her as Amanda Quick, and then I got sucked into the Arcane Society novels. I like her a lot, in any incarnation! I’m glad this one is good so far. I found her last one (as Krentz) fun but quickly forgettable, which surprised me. I’m on the library hold list, but I’ll have to suspend the hold while I’m away.
