Scandalous family secrets, a murderer primed to strike again, and two people with opposite lifestyles finding love in the midst of chaos; Secret Sacrifices is a marvelous book full of action and passion, mysteries and revelations.
Jamie LeCorre is making a name for herself as a stock car driver, and her face is recognized by fans around the country. When she's asked to sing at a friend's wedding, she uses a pseudonym and a disguise so convincing that a wedding guest, private investigator Quint Douglas, mistakes her for a hooker. Quint, fearing Jamie might be reading too much into his physical attraction to her, insults and humiliates her to push her away. But when he later finds out she's a professional race car driver, not a professional call girl, he flies to Chicago to apologize.
Jamie's pride keeps her from forgiving him, but she needs his professional services and asks Quint to help her obtain proof of her innocence in a multi-car crash on the track. He agrees to assist her, using the opportunity to convince her they're perfect for each other, even though he's deathly afraid of speed and, she thrives on it.
Jamie and Quint's romance quickly turns passionate and serious, but outside forces conspire against them. Quint's ex-girlfriend, a talk show host, publicly harasses the couple, a murderer leaves a friend of Jamie's dead, and then comes after her in what appears to be a number of unlucky accidents.
Quint enlists the help of his family to research Jamie's past. As secrets are exposed and sacrifices made known, Jamie's world spins out of control.
Jannifer Hoffman weaves stunning intrigue through this book, liberally spicing it with sensual romance and professional racing circuit excitement. I must admit, I'm not a NASCAR follower, but every chapter fascinated me, and the smartly crafted plot tied all the clues together for a captivating ending. Secret Sacrifices is a winner, for NASCAR enthusiasts, romance fans and mystery fanatics.

## This book was fantastic. I adored BOTH the hero and the heroine, which is very rare for me. The NASCAR angle was superb. Loved the action on the track. The crime element was impressive as well. The only draw-back for me was that the book was a little too long. Not to say that other readers wouldn't like that. 600 pages just is a bit much for me. I feel like the investigation could've wrapped up much sooner (ergo only 4 stars). I accidentally read book #4 (Virgil's story) first and loved it, so these books obviously stand alone as well. Nice job Jannifer.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
