Blog Tour: Deadly Secrets by Robert Bryndza

My Review:


Deadly Secrets is the sixth book in the Erika Foster series, and I was thrilled to be asked to join the blog tour for books I have been reading from the start! This novel finds Erika feeling slightly the worse for wear, her last case having proven incredibly challenging. I like it when authors don't just ignore the trauma their characters suffered before in crime fiction series, and Erika feels all the more real for it. The case in this book is a creepy one, as per usual, with a mother finding the body of her daughter on her doorstep. It's very grim, and I immediately wanted to know what had happened and why. Erika also deals with some personal issues from her past, and her husband's death four years prior. I liked getting to see a slightly softer side to this characters, who, in her toughness, could be difficult to connect to at times, even though I always found her intriguing. The story moved quickly, as it always does in Bryndza's novels, and though the arc has become a touch formulaic, it was still very absorbing and a solid addition to the series.

If you enjoy Angela Marsons, Erin Kelly, Elizabeth Haynes or B.A. Paris, I do think this series will be a good fit for you. Recommended!
