Nothing stays buried forever…
Doctor Rowan Dupont knows death. She grew up surrounded by it in her family’s Victorian funeral home, and it’s haunted her since the day her twin sister drowned years ago. Between her mother’s subsequent suicide and the recent murder of her father, coming home to run the funeral home feels fitting—even if it leaves her vulnerable to an obsessive serial killer.
Rowan refuses to let fear keep her from honoring her family. But the more time she spends back in Winchester, Tennessee, the more she finds herself questioning what really happened that fateful summer. Had her sister’s death truly been an accident? And what pushed their mother to take her own life? The dark lake surrounding Rowan’s hometown holds as many secrets as the bodies that float in its chilling depths. But Rowan is running out of time if she’s going to uncover the truth before somebody sinks her for good.
The Secrets We Bury by Debra Webb is an interesting thriller. So much has happened to the undertaker’s daughter. First, she lost a twin sister at a young age, then her mother commits suicide, and last her father was murdered. Then she finds out secrets that only bring her more pain and sorrow. Back at home, where most of the worst things have happened, Rowan takes up her family’s business. But once there, she stumbles across a dead long time buried bodied and from there all hell breaks lose. Danger, suspense, and plenty of twists are on every page. I was curious and had to know who and why. The more that happened the worst it got. I was able to connect and feel sympathy for Rowan. She’s a strong independent woman who faces her challenges head on. This, was one fantastic suspense novel.
