Overview

Should some secrets remain buried?

Dusty has always been a hothead, far more impulsive than her twin, Nick, the calm, cool and collected one of the pair. But Nick is dead, found murdered in their local cemetery, and Dusty simply can't rest until she finds out who-or what-has killed her brother.

Sure the local authorities aren't being straight with her-or anyone else-about what's been going on in their little upper Michigan town, Dusty delays going off to college for a semester, defying her father and stepmother and taking a job in the local bar to start doing some digging.

Her focus soon fixes on Shane, her brother's best friend and the town bad boy. The tension and rivalry between Dusty and Shane has always been palpable and sparks fly as the two collide. Dusty finds herself sinking in deeper with Shane and the mystery of what happened to her brother-and a lengthening list of victims-grows even stranger.

When everything comes to a head, Dusty focuses on one thing: What happened the night her brother was killed in the cemetery? She's sure Shane is keeping a secret and she's determined to find out what it is, one way or another.

Meet the Author

Emme Rollins is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author of New Adult/Mature Young Adult fiction. She's been writing since she could hold a crayon and still chews her pen caps to a mangled plastic mess. She did not, however, eat paste as a kid.

She has two degrees, a bachelor's and a master's, one of which she's still paying for, but neither of which she uses out in the "real world," because when she isn't writing, she spends her time growing an organic garden to feed her husband and children (and far too many rabbits and deer!) where they live on twenty gorgeous forested acres in rural Michigan.

She loves tending her beehives (bees are wonderful pollinators and Hello!? Honey!) and keeping up with her daily yoga practice and going for long walks in the woods with her boxer, Rodeo, who loves chasing squirrels almost as much as Emme loves writing!

    I love romantic suspense novels and Buried Secrets, Emme Rollins

    I love romantic suspense novels and Buried Secrets, Emme Rollins’s latest book, delivers on both ends. She also adds a touch of a paranormal twist to the mix to spice things up.




    Buried Secrets takes place in the small town of Larkspur, Michigan. So small in fact that it doesn’t even have its own high school or local paper. Needless to say when Nick Chandler is found murdered in the graveyard, his sister Dusty knows there’s more to the story. Questioning his friends gets her nowhere but she can tell they’re hiding something by the look in their eyes. Seeking solace in Nick’s best friend, Shane Curtis, she soon can’t fight her feelings for him any longer. After a weekend of bliss, Dusty, high on emotions, confronts Shane about the night of her brother’s murder and he unravels a story even he still can’t believe.




    I have a love-hate relationship with Dusty. She’s stubborn and short-tempered, which makes me love her and hate her at the same time. These traits clouded her judgement and kept her from seeking what she really wanted, however it also led her to the truth about her brother’s murder and Shane. Speaking of Shane, he is the town’s bad boy, or so everyone thinks. Granted he’s had his fair share of trouble, but not everything is black and white with Shane. In fact, Nick tries to explain this to Dusty the night of his death but she won’t listen. If only he had told her the truth from the beginning, maybe she would have looked at Shane differently.




    The start of the book was a little slow for me. Everything revolved around Nick’s death and his funeral, and nothing was really going on. I was a little confused by Dusty’s suspicions of his death at first because there was nothing to go on except that he wasn’t supposed to be in the graveyard. Things finally start coming together when Shane and Dusty start working together. Their romance blossoms and the suspense following Nick’s death is finally revealed. There were actually a couple of clues that you might miss if not thinking about it and it was pretty interesting to read the end result.




    Fans of new adult and romantic suspense will enjoy this mysterious tale. There isn’t too much paranormal to it until the very end so that shouldn’t interfere but if you’re looking for something full of the supernatural, this might not be for you.

    I give this one 3.5 stars. The first half of the book was 3 star

    I give this one 3.5 stars. The first half of the book was 3 stars and the second half was 4. I hate to say it, but I never connected to any of the characters. Wait, I take it back. I connected to Nick, who unfortunately was dead when the book started. You have to read it to understand my logic there. I connected to Sam, who, well wow, don't want to spoil anything there.

    I liked Dusty and I totally get her wanting to avenge her brother. Shane, hmm, not sure how I feel about him. I honestly spent the majority of the book confused. I couldn't figure out what was going on and honestly, I found myself skipping pages at a time to get to the dialogue where I could try to make some sense.

    To say I was shocked the closer the book got to the end was an understatement. The closer to the end the book got, the better it got. It all started coming to a peak and things started moving fast, and I didn't skip a single word. I was gnawing on my finger nails and cringing. Hell, I think I had one eye closed and the other one squinting trying to read when they were in the mausoleum. Finding out Nick's secret, well that put everything in alignment. Why he didn't want her hanging out with them? Check. Why he didn't want her with Shane? check. Who he was with? check.

    Then, the ending. Well hell. I didn't see that coming. Ugh, I am officially creeped out. What was that?

    Good read overall. Reminded me of Jeepers Creepers or some of those other creepy movies I have a love/hate relationship with.
