“Fatal Secrets” by Anita Waller – Book Review

What a cracking beginning to a new crime series! With likeable characters, a fast-paced plot, and an interesting storyline, “Fatal Secrets” is a winner!

Set in Sheffield, this crime thriller features members of the South Yorkshire Police. It has a strong family vibe, while also dealing with a lot of violence and some lowlife criminals from the city’s organized crime leaders.

The events that lead up to the creation of the Forrester Detective Agency were trying to read, yet the business survived to be manned by the founder’s son and daughter, along with the son’s best friend. Besides arduous police work, there was a lot of danger and also more than a little romance.

I can hardly wait for the next instalment of this series! Highly recommended!

This review was written voluntarily and my rating was in no way influenced by the fact that I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel from Boldwood Books via NetGalley.
