REVIEW & GIVEAWAY Promise Not to Tell (Cutler, Sutter & Salinas #2) by Jayne Ann Krentz

Kindle Edition, 304 pages
Expected publication: January 2nd 2018 by Berkley

A broken promise reveals a terrifying legacy in this electrifying novel from the New York Times bestselling author of When All the Girls Have Gone.

A painter of fiery, nightmarish visions throws herself into the sea—but she’ll leave some of her secrets behind...

Seattle gallery owner Virginia Troy has spent years battling the demons that stem from her childhood time in a cult and the night a fire burned through the compound, killing her mother. And now one of her artists has taken her own life, but not before sending Virginia a last picture: a painting that makes Virginia doubt everything about the so-called suicide—and her own past.

Like Virginia, private investigator Cabot Sutter was one of the children in the cult who survived that fire...and only he can help her now. As they struggle to unravel the clues in the painting, it becomes clear that someone thinks Virginia knows more than she does and that she must be stopped. Thrown into an inferno of desire and deception, Virginia and Cabot draw ever closer to the mystery of their shared memories—and the shocking fate of the one man who still wields the power to destroy everything they hold dear. 

My Thoughts…

Promise Not to Tell continues the story of the boys that were saved from a fire set by a cult leader.   This is Cabot’s story.    He is a PI hired by Virginia to investigate the death of another past cult member.     Unlike most customers, Virginia is involved in the investigation every step of the way.    Cabot and Virginia find themselves thrown together in dangerous, crazy, and scary ways. 

This book moved quickly.    With every page there were mysteries to be solved, romance to be discovered, and stories to be told.   It seemed that with every clue there was more to be known about Zane, the cult leader, and whoever Cabot and Virginia were chasing.   I liked that there were clues within every chapter and if you could find them and follow them it led the reader to the right suspect.    That being said, I thought I was following the clues and was only able to solved part of the investigation.   

Being the second book in a series, I do think that it could be read as a stand-alone.    Jayne Ann Krentz does a great job of catching the new reader up on the characters and the story without losing the attention of the reader who is familiar with the story.    Promise Not to Tell has an ending, the investigation is solved, but I do believe there is more to tell about these characters.   

I recommend picking up your own copy and enjoying the suspense, thrills, and romance of Cabot and Virginia’s story.
