My Secret To Tell
Natalie D. Richards
His smile is a crime.Emerson May is “the good girl.” She’s the perfect daughter, the caring friend, the animal shelter volunteer. But when her best friend’s brother breaks into her room, his hands covered in blood, she doesn’t scream or call the cops. Because when Deacon smiles at her, Emmie doesn’t want to be good…The whole town believes notorious troublemaker Deacon is guilty of assaulting his father. Only Emmie knows a secret that could set him free. But if she follows her heart, she could be trusting a killer…You can’t always trust the boy next door.
My Secret to Tell by Natalie D. Richards is my version of an almost perfect YA suspense. Which is an interesting aspect as the words “YA” and “suspense” do not seem to correspond in my world normally. Meet Deacon, bad boy in trouble and drop dead gorgeousEnter Emmie, good girl who does not loose herself even if she is into the bad boy way over her head. And you have the YA adult part perfectly wrapped Add a good mystery that keeps the reader guessing – (and if you think you know – think again) .. mix it with good writing and your result is a very good developed YA Novel that I would like to recommend to you warmly.
