\n\nShandra, single, aggressive, and an accomplished journalist, has tender memories of the time spent as a young girl in the old house on the hill, and her curiosity and sentimentality lead her to a final visit to the forgotten home. What she discovers shocks Shandra to her very core. Not only is the house still filled with her grandmother's old belongings, but there is also a body, long since dead, and covered with the same thick layer of dust as the rest of the items in the house.\n\n
\n\nReturning with the sheriff and his handsome deputy, Clay, they find the body missing. In its place is another body—this one dead less than 12 hours. And all evidence points to Shandra.\n\n
\n\nDesperate to clear her name and uncover the truth behind these troubling mysteries, Shandra puts her journalistic training to use. Between the reluctant townspeople, ominous warnings, and physical threats, Shandra learns the truth, little by little—knowing full well that someone is determined to keep old secrets buried, even it means burying Shandra as well . . .\n\n

Turn off the phone and take a deep breath before you start the rollercoaster ride that suspense writer, Jeff Savage, has created in HOUSE OF SECRETS. The first book in his Sandra Covington mystery series will leave you eagerly waiting for the next! Fast-paced and gripping, combined with the author's delightful sense of humor, this book will quickly be added to your list of favorites.
Wow. This is the kind of book that takes a bite out of you in the very first page. It was gripping, fun, and adventurous. I loved the heroine, loved the plot twists and loved loved loved the ending. Two thumbs way up for a novel that really rocks.
A heroine that's realistic. A plot that keeps twisting. A law enforcement agent that sounds just too good looking for words. A body in a closet. Did I give too much away? No -- you can't even begin to guess all that you'll find within the pages of House of Secrets. Author Jeffrey Savage has created a heroine of the ages. She's smart, determined, and down-to-earth. Come with Shandra as she unravels one of the most complex mysteries I've read in LDS fiction. And there's this chase scene, see ...
Thrilling book, not at all predictable, and the main character is very endearing. It's also hard to put down, so find a good chunk of time before you pick this one up. Savage's Into the Fire is also exceptionally good. My only regret is that this author has only published four books; I want more!
