A mysterious disappearance. A dark family secret. Can Ella expose the ugly truth before it’s too late?

About the Book

Families have secrets. Some secrets are locked, sealed, and taken to the grave. Others beg to be told. They ooze through cracks a little at a time. You tease them out until an ugly truth is fully exposed. Ella Perri knows there’s something hidden in the family cottage. In his last breath, Ella’s grandfather reveals to her a startling secret that hints at something sinister. On behalf of her beloved grandfather, she embarks on a dangerous quest for truth. A World War II diary and the 21st century collide as Ella desperately chases every clue in a faraway and unfamiliar setting where the real story begins. Who can be trusted and who has something to hide? One secret leads to another. As Ella delves into her grandfather’s past, she discovers a hidden box. Its scandalous contents reveal a hidden past with implications of a crime and a missing woman named Gianna. The mystery takes Ella on a quest for truth through the streets of Tropea, Italy where her grandfather, Poppy, and Gianna grew up. The places she visits and the people she encounters seem to further implicate her beloved grandfather in a crime of passion. As many of her fears are confirmed, a dark truth emerges and Ella must decide: share the secrets and alter the fates of her loved ones forever or become part of the lie that’s been buried deep for decades. Buried Secrets is a suspenseful mystery with twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the shocking ending.
