I loved this book! Her villains are complexed and creepy. Her heroes and heroines are real, likeable and engaging. Her juvenile characters are especially well drawn and believable. The story is creepy and full of twists. It is hard to put this book down. I am buying next book now. I can't wait to find out where the author takes her characters next.
Very excellent read...kept me wanting to listen through the end.
Too many to mention.

Oh.....Is there Going to be Another "Oak Knoll" Book.....Book 4???
Secrets to the Grave is the second in a trilogy about the town of Oak Knoll, not a place to live if you’re squeamish about grizzly murder. The story centers on the particularly gruesome murder of a young single mother. Her four year old little girl witnesses the murder. Sad premise to start. Ann Leone, the main character of this trilogy, is a lover of children, studying child psychology, and comes to the aide of the girl. The ultimate villain came to me much sooner than Tami Hoag would have liked, I’m sure…but, I won’t be a spoiler. I think my favorite character in the series is Fanny. I hope he appears in more books, a fun guy…had me laugh out loud a few times.
The book is read by Kirsten Potter, and she does a credible job with all character voices except the former Chicago cop. He sounds more east coast/Bostonian than midwestern (speaking as a born and bred Chicagoan). Great job with the other characters, including the child. Unabridged audiobook, about thirteen hours of listening.
If you enjoy a Hoag murder mystery, you’ll enjoy the story. I did, and I’m ready for the third book in the Oak Knoll trilogy.
Reading, the arts and physical activity clarify, explain, illustrate, and interpret life’s goods and bads.
All three Oak Knoll stories are good get away from everyday life and loose oneself in a mystery thriller. Not the best mysteries, always about a horrid subject; but Hoag knows how to entertain.
Book One was very good, Book Two as good, and Book Three was not bad. By the third in one week though, I had enough. Good characters in Books One and Two. Less so in Book Three but the read does not disappoint.
Say something about yourself!
This is a great series and a good narrator. The writing styles gives the perspective from all characters giving a better perspective and more in-depth story.
It’s interesting to remember what it was like in the 80’s (for those of us that are old enough) I tend to forget the days of not being able to get in touch with someone at any time.
I loved the first book, but this one bored me to tears. Eight hours into the book I decided I DID NOT care how it ended. The winy little girl got on my nerves! I don't know if the author, narrator or both are to blame.
Yes, could not stop slistening.
The story line.
This was the best combination of story line and reader I have ever listened to.
This book kept me so emotionally engaged. The performer drew you into the story as though you were part of it.
I am excited to start the next book with the same characters
Audio Book Junkie!
I read Secrets to the Grave and immediately downloaded the next two books in the series. It is a series that I will listen to again. I like Tami Hoag, she is one of my favorite authors.
