Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

Waverly Sloan is a down-on-his-luck lawyer. But just when he's about to hit rock bottom, he stumbles upon a business with the potential to solve all of his problems. In Waverly's new line of work, he comes to the aid of people in desperate need of cash. But there's a catch. His clients must be terminally ill and willing to sign over rights to their life insurance policies before they can collect a dime. Waverly then finds investors eager to advance them thousands of dollars - including a hefty broker's fee for himself.

I loved this book so much, the detail and depth of characters. I mourned the day I finished this book, as I felt a kinship and love for the mesh of characters.

Tell No One is an irresistibly suspenseful thriller infused with nail-biting tension and packed with shocking plot twists. It has been eight years since Dr. David Beck’s wife, Elizabeth, was murdered by a serial killer. When Beck receives a message containing a phrase only Elizabeth should know, he is tormented to tears. Either someone is playing a sick joke, or the wife he’s never stopped loving is still alive. He’s been warned to tell no one, and as the desperation of his search for the truth intensifies, he heads straight toward a deadly secret.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I struggled from the beginning and finally gave up. Moved too slow. It was a suggestion from Joshilyn Jackson's book review..."readers who listened to Jackson like Morton..."
Not this reader.

What was most disappointing about Kate Morton’s story?

Slow start.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Caroline Lee?

N/A

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Secret Keeper?

N/A

Any additional comments?

I wasted a credit/$
