This was a marathon weekend of reading! Thanks to Jeremy and his buddy for having a prep weekend for their upcoming Canada trip.
Thanks to Mira Books for the free advanced copy in exchange for my honest review
HER SECRET SON – Hannah Mary McKinnon (Releasing May 28th, 2019)
Check back for the #allthebookreviews thoughts 🙂
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
Josh had a simple life with a good job, a loving partner, and a well-behaved son. Until one day that all came crashing down around him. One phone call changed everything. Mrs. Banks, the neighbor, called to inform him that Grace had taken a nasty fall down the outside steps and the head trauma was so severe that she passed away. Now it’s just Josh and Logan on their own trying to deal with the grief of losing Grace.
With them not being married, and Logan not being Josh’s biological son, he begins the process of trying to become his legal guardian. Everything seems to be going smoothly until he cannot locate Logan’s birth certificate and the state can’t find it either. From here Josh experiences a downward spiral as he digs into his partner’s past and her secrets. How far would you go to protect someone that isn’t yours?
The short chapters and small reveals kept the pacing up with this one. Poor Josh had so many curve balls thrown at him and you could feel how he was beginning to deteriorate while trying to cope with the loss of Grace. How could the woman he loved keep so many secrets from him? While trying to stay strong for Logan he goes to great lengths to protect him and find answers. That ending? Did not see that coming – I guessed who but not everything that went with it!
I would probably classify this as more of a domestic drama than a thriller, but I didn’t feel like there were any lulls like I’ve been experiencing in some books lately. I enjoyed this and I will definitely be picking up more from McKinnon in the future.
