#BookReview: Her Secret Past (Detective Jessie Blake #3) by @Denmanisfab

Synopsis: Jean Angus pours the last of the lukewarm tea into her chipped cup, shivering as she looks outside into the dark night. Her eyes are drawn to a slow movement not far from her cosy farmhouse. She’s not expecting visitors. And as the back door opens with a bang, she doesn’t even have time to shout for help. 

On a dark winter night, the bodies of Malcolm and Jean Anguslie cold and still in a pool of blood in their kitchen. Detective Jessie Blake is called in to find out what happened to the reclusive pair. 

Searching the couple’s property, Jessie learns about a vicious dispute with a nearby landowner, Rachel Ferguson, and when Jessie looks into Rachel further, she doesn’t expect what comes up. Rachel isn’t the person everyone thinks she is and a previous murder conviction just made her Jessie’s prime suspect. 

The small Perthshire town begins to gossip about the double murder and Jessie’s own past comes back to haunt her when her abusive ex-husband begins to interfere in her new life. As the town starts a witch hunt against Rachel, Jessie is under pressure to find out what really happened in the farmhouse that night. Because if it isn’t Rachel, then who is the murderer living among them, waiting to kill again? 


Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This was a very interesting story of not one but two crimes.  I loved seeing how the story unfolded and how the characters worked in the story.  I hadn't read the first two books in this one but man I will now. This story had plenty of twists and turns and when I thought I knew what was going on I was surprised to learn I was wrong.  This book keeps you on your toes and I couldn't put it down. 

If you like LJ Ross, Val McDermid and Helen H. Durrant, you’ll love this addictive new crime thriller from Kerry Watts. Her Secret Past will have you hooked from the start!
