For a free book it was really good! Now I want to know what happens nexted! This author is now on my list to look for. You should try it too, plus it's FREE!! I like the love story in the book as well. This book is approriate for 15 year olds and up beause of brief sex and language, but not a lot at all so don't get your panties in a wade! But really, try it out, theres nothing to lose. I am sure you will love it as much as I do. You learn something I didn't see coming at the end! Read it and find out for youselves! No cost to you...happy reading! -(R

This book was very similar to Insight with Trew and Martie being able to communicate telepathically,meeting in dreams,being each others soulmates, and not being from earth just wanted to point that out.But it was a good read.

SKETCH OF SECRETS, Book 1 in The Garnet Trilogy surrounds Martie Johnson, a young teen who finds her mother has mysteriously vanished. Frightened and alone, Martie is faced with searching for her mother with very little clues to her sudden disappearance. Armed with a duffel bag full of cash and a warning from her mother not to return home, Martie sets out determined to find her mother. Her journey leads her to a father she has never met and a boy named Trew, the boy of her dreams. The author skillfully weaves enough mystery into the story to keep the readers guessing. However, with a skilled developmental editor and a proof reader, the depth of the characters and intricacy of the plot could have been much richer and the few grammar errors avoided.

Amazing book, i love the story and instantly fell in love with harrison. The concept of the book is great, and i was up until midnight reafing it. I def reccomend this book for ages 13+ (because of some sexual content) and i will def be picking up the 2 and 3 book to this series! -rhiannon

I read this book based on the other reviews here and am glad I did. I have read all 3 books now so wanted to leave my comments. The first book is really good and of course made me want to read the others. I love Trew especially and was happy he made such a strong appearance in the last book. Anyway, this first book is great. I would recommend it.

I really enjoyed this story. The story is well written and I especially enjoyed the suspense. I found myself wanting to know what was going with each turn of the page. The main character is a young woman that finds her life is much less conventional than she first believed. The romance is sweet but also passionate. I would recommend people to take a chance on an unknown and get to know her. I loved the book!

** spoiler alert ** Sketch of Secrets was an intriguing and fast paced book. I enjoyed it thoroughly and finished it very quick.  Sketch of Secrets is about a girl, Martie, who's mother disappears on her 17th birthday. Martie sets off to find her, but instead of finding her mom, she finds the boy of her dreams- literally. The two follow clues and unlock the secrets of her mom's past. When the clues lead Martie to her father that she never met, she finds out that her mom and Trew's father are aliens from another planet. Trew's father forbids them to pursue the subject further. Will Trew ignore his father's orders and take Martie to find her?  Sketch of Secrets was so fast paced I didn't realize I was almost done the book until I looked at the time. It took me no longer than a few days to finish it. I liked plot and the quickness of it, but a little part of me wished there was more explanations and character development. I was ALMOST bothered by the insta-love that Martie and Trew had, but they had a connection so I can see why they loved each other so easily. I also wished that I got to look more into Martie's feelings.  Overall, Sketch of Secrets was MORE than what I was expecting. I honestly was expecting some stupid story of an immature girl who can't solve a mystery for her life, but instead I received a plot twisting book. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys YA fiction, romance, fantasy, or mystery.
