Secret McQueen is still trying to get her life back to whatever normal is for her. In the last year she has found two werewolf lovers only to lose one and have the other betray her very publicly, go from working for the Council to being one of the three Councilors, face an attraction with her old handler that has only recently come to light, and discover family she never knew about. A lot for a few months when there are still secrets that you need to keep just that – a secret. To say that her life is messed up just doesn’t cover it. It gets worse when Secret is contacted by the man who betrayed her and asked to find and bring his sister and a friend to Secret, Kellen Rain, home safely.
Secret agrees but only because of who is missing, Secret will never turn her back on a friend. For this investigation, Secret goes back to her roots of investigation background and finds out that much more is involved than a socialite just disappearing for a time. Of course when it rains it pours and Secret is also confronted with issues at the PI business she runs with her mentor and has a hostile confrontation at the Council. Taking care of one and realizing the other two actually merge together, Secret goes to Calliope to gain access to the fairy realm where things aren’t always what they seem, she brings along the two men who love her and might be Secret’s only hold on sanity while there. Arriving in the fairy realm only brings new issues to light and while Secret finds Kellan and finally does bring everyone home safe – what has been the cost of this trip and has Secret destroyed more than she helped?
Just another day for Secret McQueen this time includes an adventure in the fairy realm to track down a runaway socialite, track down a killer and fight for the love she still has a chance to hold on to. Grave Secret brings both sorrow and joy to Secret as she loses friends, gains lovers and battles to remain in control of the chaos that exists of her life. Every time I think that Secret is finally going to get the ultimate happiness she so deserves, something happens to make me ache for her but also brings hope that her love is just around the corner. This time I had to watch as Secret battled to keep her duel personality a secret while battling to help a friend and stop a killer. This time I found the costs were very steep for Secret and she had to say goodbye to some good parts of her life while keeping up appearances and living to try and gain the love that is always just at her fingertips. As I closed the pages on this latest edition of Secret’s journey, I had more hope that she really will find that happy ending just evading her but I am at a lost on just who it will be as both men in her life fulfill a part of her. Now I’m waiting to see just what the next chapter in Secret’s journey is and if I’m correct on what I think might ultimately happen for her. Grave Secret is filled with joys, sorrows, pain and of course passion for a edge of your seat edition in Secret McQueen’s life and loves.
