An Okay Read...

Every Secret Thing - Emma Cole, Susanna Kearsley

When an old man strikes up a conversation with her on the steps of St. Pauls and makes a mystifying mention of murder and an oddly familiar comment about her grandmother, Kate Murray is intrigued. But she never gets to hear the rest of Andrew Deacon s tale. Shocked by his unexpected death, she wonders whom this strange, old man is, and what the odd reference to her grandmother could mean...

 

The love story in this book was nice. Heartbreaking almost.  Susanna Kearsley (or Emma Cole as she goes by for this novel)  knows how to write a good love story, as is evidenced in her other works.

 

The mystery was meh.

 

The book left some loose ends. I believe it was supposed to have been the start of a series that wasn't completed.

 

It was an ok read.
