Buried Secrets by Emme Rollins (*)

Genre; New Adult/Romance
Release date; August 25th 2013
Should some secrets remain buried?

Dusty has always been a hothead, far more impulsive than her twin, Nick, the calm, cool and collected one of the pair. But Nick is dead, found murdered in their local cemetery, and Dusty simply can’t rest until she finds out who–or what–has killed her brother.

Sure the local authorities aren’t being straight with her–or anyone else–about what’s been going on in their little upper Michigan town, Dusty delays going off to college for a semester, defying her father and stepmother and taking a job in the local bar to start doing some digging.

Her focus soon fixes on Shane, her brother’s best friend and the town bad boy. The tension and rivalry between Dusty and Shane has always been palpable and sparks fly as the two collide. Dusty finds herself sinking in deeper with Shane and the mystery of what happened to her brother–and a lengthening list of victims–grows even stranger.

When everything comes to a head, Dusty focuses on one thing: What happened the night her brother was killed in the cemetery? She’s sure Shane is keeping a secret and she’s determined to find out what it is, one way or another

I loved this, i was nearly bawling within two minutes the emotion really seeps through into the writing and into the reader. It tells the story of Dusty & Shane and the relationship between them as well as Dustys journey to figure out what the heck happened to her brother. The answer? Not something anyone was expecting, it was rivating, fast paced and passionate. All the these things that build up to make a great book for me, and this just worked.

Rating; 9/10
