Overview

Her name is Bond. Jamie Bond. And she is licensed to kill any pre-nup you can throw at her.

Catching cheating husbands became Jamie Bond's life when her father was shot and wounded on the job, forcing Jamie to take over the family business: The Bond Agency. But three years later, the PI is shocked when the gun that wounded her father surfaces during a high-profile murder trial. Is this the connection Jamie's been waiting for to finally nail her father's shooter? But, oddly enough, Derek Bond doesn't seem interested. In fact, if Jamie didn't know better she'd say he's even trying to stop her from looking into it. Along with her team of bombshell investigators, Jamie suddenly finds herself in the middle of a cold case that's heating up the media, dodging old grudges and new enemies, while questioning the motives of those closest to her. If she can live with the truth, the secrets Jamie uncovers may bring down more than a marriage this time.

    Fabulous book! This riveting story line had me on the edge of my seat with every page exciting turn. The characters are so unbelievably adorable that I couldn’t put the book down. I’ve read many books by Gemma Halliday and Secret Bond is one of my favorites. If you love Nora Roberts or Janet Evanovich, you are going to love Secret Bond!

    Doesn't disappoint

    From start to finish I enjoyed Secret Bond. The plot with its creative twists and turns keeps the reader engaged while trying to figure out the bad guy! Does Jamie get the guy? Which one could it be? Read it to find out.

    Great book until it fell flat at the end

    I've read and enjoyed Gemma's books over the years and always enjoyed them. This one was great until I got to the end and wondered where the rest of the chapters were. I felt like the ending was very unfinished and disappointing.

    Another fun and saucy read. All of Gemma Halliday's books are a joy to read, and Secret Bond is no exception. Every time I pick up a book by Ms. Halliday I know, without question, that I am in for a treat. I highly recommend Secret Bond to anyone who likes a great story filled with lovable and likeable characters.

    1.5 Stars. Enjoyed some of Ms Halliday's other books but this was a major disapointment. One dimensional characters & a flat story. Skipped pages just wanting the read to come to an end. Boring.

    Quick and cute read!

    This is what I call a chicklet book. It is a light and fun read with a little mystery, a little romance, and a little humour. Great for a quick read in between serious books or for vacation or holidays!

    This was an awesome book! Jamie and her girls head to a nudist

    This was an awesome book! Jamie and her girls head to a nudist colony to check out a possible cheating husband. The nudist colony scenes were hilarious along with the conclusion to the investigation, which I’m sure most women would love to do to a cheating spouse if given half a chance. Meanwhile Aiden has a new court case that has new evidence surfacing on Derek’s shooting and almost gets all involved shot or killed. Jamie tricks Danny into helping her on a case as they are headed to a gay bar and he can’t back out. The budding possible romance between Jamie and Aiden or Jamie and Danny leaves you wanting way more. Can't wait to read more, I’ll be buying the next book as soon as it is available.

    Secret Bond is a great story. Gemma Halliday writes characters that are humorous and endearing. They make you smile. Add in romance and you have a winner. Jamie Bond and her three faithful employees run a well known detective agency that cheating husbands fear. Who would think that a former model could be so successful. When information on her father's attempted murder surfaces, Jamie has to know who tried to kill Derek three years ago. At the risk of her life she follows the clues. A further complication is her budding romance with Aiden Prince the new L.A. county DA and the unexpected attention of Danny Flynn, her former photographer and best friend. How Jamie juggles all this and at the same time catches a killer will keep you reading. I can't wait for more.

    Wow! I read the first book in the series, "Unbreakable Bond

    Wow!
    I read the first book in the series, "Unbreakable Bond" & loved it.
    This one, the second book in the series was better than the first!
    They have the perfect combination of a little mystery, some excitement & romance too!
    Also, I truly did not expect the ending!
     I love that you can read one book in the series & still understand what's going on...

    This was a god book, kept my interest, but not very exciting. I don't think I'll be reading any more of Gemma's books.

    Secret Bond is the second book in the Jamie Bond Mystery series.

    Secret Bond is the second book in the Jamie Bond Mystery series. I have not read the first book yet, but I found that even though she has longstanding relationships with some of the characters I did not feel like I was missing important information while I was reading. This is a really good mystery filled with quite a few laughs. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.

    Jamie Bond has left her modeling life behind her to become a P.I. and take over the responsibility of The Bond Agency from her father who even helps her out once in a while. It’s been three years since she took over and there are not many things that shock her anymore. But when the gun that was used to wound her father shows up in an ongoing murder trial she realizes she can still be shocked. She finally has the chance to discover who shot her father and why, by Derek Bond has no desire to discuss it and does not want her looking into any information she comes across. Jamie will not accept his decision and sneaks behind his back to find out what he’s hiding. With the help of her friends and co-investigators from the agency she will uncover more than she ever expected, but someone wants her investigation to stop and they will do anything to make that happen. Can Jamie solve the mystery behind her father’s shooting? Or will someone stop her at any cost?

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    After finally starting the first book in this series Unbreakable

    After finally starting the first book in this series Unbreakable Bond I had to dig through my kindle until I found the second book in the series that I bought months ago.  As with the first book I absolutely loved the character interactions, and the situations they found themselves in were always hilarious.  There were a number of laugh out loud scenes but the scene with the girls in the diner was by far my favorite.  The story was a little more serious than the first book, but since it was for the most part a quick, funny story it didn't make it feel dark at all.  I'm still rooting for Danny!

    Although I didn't read the first book in this series, it was easy to get into the swing of things with the main characters and their interactions. Jamie Bond has joined her father's detective agency, mostly working on proving or disproving cases of infidelity for concerned spouses. Her friend, ADA Aiden is currently prosecuting a murder case against a corrupt cop when his department finds evidence that the gun used in this case also was involved in the near fatal shooting of Jamie's father three years prior. Although her father refuses to talk about this, she starts her own investigation, looking for any and all possible links. The story also features some of her other ongoing investigations, including one they need to conduct at a nudist colony. The story is told at a good pace, keeping the reader involved, sometimes with humor, sometimes with emotion, with a nice twist at the end. Her relationships with Aidan and one of her friends and coworkers, Danny, is left to explore in future novels. Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
