Secret Rerfuge by Dana Mentink | RE:VIEW

A mysterious path wrong turns and twists will hold your attention to the end!

Secret Refuge was my first introduction to Dana's writing and I really enjoyed it! I love the quick reads of Love Inspired Suspense and enjoyed the approach Dana took to this highly mysterious tale.

Keely Steven's has a stubborn streak a mile wide and is adamant about not needing help from anyone. Mick carries around his guilt like a bag of bricks. When they find themselves caught in between danger and the possibility that things aren't as straight-forward as they seem, the question remains: will Mick find redemption? And will Keely realize that if she doesn't accept his help, she could be putting herself in more danger than even she can handle?

I always feel like, since these are smaller books (word count wise), the romance needs to be moved along at a fast pace, which can often times make it seem unbelievable. I (mostly) didn't feel that about Secret Refuge. The motivations of the characters were tangible and easy to see carried out. Their character changes were also believable and flowed well with the story.

The action was swift and constant. Dana did an excellent job of keeping the reader guessing and, just when you thought you had it figured out, there was another twist or turn. I definitely found myself surprised a few times.

If you love romantic suspense and are looking for a fun, fast read, Secret Refuge is the book for you!

My Rating: 4*

Book Description
(from Amazon)
His chance at redemption.

Former parole officer Mick Hudson blames himself for the death of Keeley Stevens's sister. If he hadn't paroled a criminal, she might still be alive. When he hears that the suspected killer has been spotted in Keeley's hometown, he worries she might be the next victim. Keeley doesn't want to take help from the man who could have prevented her sister's death, but she has more than herself to worry about. She'll do anything it takes to protect her family. And Mick will risk his life to make sure that the past does not repeat itself.
