Publisher's Summary

Includes excerpt from David's latest audiobook, The First Lady's Second Man. 

Hometown Secrets is the long-awaited sequel to the first Linda Darby suspense mystery The Woman has been released. And Ryan Testler is back with her again.

Memories are funny things. The way they quietly hang around. Linger. Waiting for something we see or hear, or an unexpected event to slam them forward into our consciousness. To strike us the way headlights assault a dark road. Some memories bring along a smile, others foreshadow danger, and there are those which cry out for resolution. All of this is true for Linda Darby.

Linda wonders if she might again be lured into her first lover’s bed. As the pace quickens she does find love, along with friendship, fear, danger, and opportunity. Clashes of personality and conflicts between the agendas of the principal characters eventually coalesce in ways Linda never anticipated.

Enjoyed listening

This is my first David Bishop book and it was a very entertaining mystery made even better by the narration. I'm looking forward to reading/listening to more of the Linda Darby Mystery series.

Loyalisa30

This is my first audiobook by David Bishop and the small town dynamics between all of the residents was very interesting to uncover. Linda’s identity was supposed to be a secret, so it baffles me how it remained a secret after so many of her past acquaintances recognized her, especially since they spoke freely with others once they found out. Also, Billy’s stronghold over the town did not seem believable because he remained so clueless about the town’s going-ons. The narrator was okay but took some getting use to.

Loved It

The town of Cranston had become lazy, over confident, he was going to challenge that. Starting now, let the game begin. Linda coming back after 20 years, in disguise, stops to get a bite to eat. A man enters and falls, the bartender, checks him out,he's dead. Wondering about the bartender he was too nimble, too calm, knowing what to do.The sheriff, Reggie, states two things have now happened to this quiet town. All businesses are run by one man Billy. Things need to change for the town and the people. Interesting, a lot of characters that keep you to the end.
