Psychologist Grace Callahan has no idea that she has a secret–one worth killing for. But when she finds out one of her clients has been murdered, she quickly realizes that the computer security specialist wasn’t simply suffering from paranoia.

Detective Nate Quinn has just been cleared for active duty after a bombing killed eighteen people, including his partner, and left him dealing with PTSD. His first case back on the job involves the murder of Stephen Shaw, and his only lead turns out to be an old friend, Grace Callahan–and her life is in grave danger. Someone believes Shaw gave his psychologist information before he died. Information they are willing to kill for.

With her signature pulse-pounding suspense, Lisa Harris takes readers deep into the heart of fear in this race against the clock.

My Honest Thoughts:

A Secret to Die For is fast-paced, suspenseful and emotional. A psychologist, a detective with PTSD, a brilliant hacker and an off the grid father  – those are the characters that compose this action packed conspiracy. Psychologist, Grace Callahan, discovers that a client has left her with something crucial, yet she doesn’t know what it is or where it is or even why he left it for her. She has no choice but to begin digging for answers to those questions, as her life depends on it. Detective Nate Quinn is cleared for duty and he is faced with a new case where he is reunited with a college friend involved in a twisted case. As details begin to emerge so does the action, Grace is being hunted down with each new clue she unravels. Nate’s PTSD is haunting him and holding him back from the emotions he is feeling toward Grace. Who can they trust? Are they following the right leads? Should Grace be involved at all? Are the feelings they have for each other driven by adrenaline or true affection? All of these questions beg to be answered as the story unfolds. There are plenty of twists and turns that make this a riveting romance and suspense novel. If you enjoy suspense and crime novels, but are looking for one that has a bit of heart then you have found your next book.

P.S. Mind your triggers – PTSD and loss of a child. Both are very well written into the story, but it’s worth noting as these are sensitive topics.


Anchor Lines:

“I’ve seen now what they can do and I don’t know how to stop them.”
