Overview

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Sacred Secrets is the prequel to award winning, The Gifts, A Jacody Ives Mystery. The story behind the story. Revealing the dark secret hidden of Gavin McAllister that created Jacody Ives.

Jacody Ives had never had to wonder whether evil existed. He was born knowing it was there. A cunning predator, silently stalking its prey. Lurking in the shadows. Waiting. Patiently waiting for the delicate balance to shift. Give it power. Grant it life. Feeding on lies and manipulation. Anger and hate. Growing stronger as it chipped away at the soul. Destroying the light until there was nothing left but the darkness.

Evil attracts evil. He’d heard its call in the nightmare. The girl was dead, but she wanted something from him. “Please. . .”, she whispered. A small prayer in the darkness.

Whispering Winds Book Reviews - Sandra Heptinstall
This is one of the most fascinating books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. After reading the author’s first book “The Gifts, A Jacody Ives Mystery,” I did not feel like the next book could top it. But what I found was Ms. Prather is one of the most gifted writers of our times.

In the second installment of the “Jacody Ives Mystery,” the author takes us deeper into the depths of Jacody and Gavin. One person, with two different personalities. <

    Intriguing

    Everyone has secrets. In Sacred Secrets the author skillfully reveals her characters and slowly unveils their secrets. In the beginning I couldn¿t understand how such an intricate set of storylines could come together in the end, but as I neared the final chapters it all began to make sense. I enjoyed getting to know these characters and immediately took to Jacody Ives, split personality and all. Ives sets out to track down a killer while at the same time must fight his own demons. Then there is Katie, seeking her own answers about life and death, and a calling she can¿t ignore. I liked the way the author painted each scene and I found myself many times picturing it a scene in a movie. If you like suspenseful mystery mingled with the supernatural, and driven by endearing characters then Sacred Secrets is for you.

    Difficult to get past inaccuracies

    Author has an extremely poor understanding of so called split personalities. The stories so called expert got her education from the tabloids not a school. The totally wrong idea on that makes it difficult to enjoy the actual plot.

    A very intriguing read.

    This is certainly a mystery with a twist, a supernatural twist. Ms Prather definitely knows how to draw her readers in and retain their interest.

    I loved the characters throughout and felt compassion for Jacody and Katie, something that rarely happens when I've read other mysteries.

    This story is riddled with twists and turns and I can't wait to read the second book in the series 'The Gifts' too.

    Congratulations on an intriguing read Ms Prather.

But what I found was Ms. Prather is one of the most gifted writers of our times. In the second installment of the "Jacody Ives Mystery," the author takes us deeper into the depths of Jacody and Gavin. One person, with two different personalities. I am so glad that the author has included some of the characters from the first book that I liked. The new ones are just as engaging. The elements of the supernatural, add to the suspense of this story. I would also like to commend Charles W. Prather, Jr. for the poetry he has written in this book. He shows great promise as well.
