My Book Review:
In Deadly Secrets, author Lacey Roberts weaves an intriguing erotic romantic suspense tale set in Canberra, Australia, that follows Detective Inspector Flynn Mitchell and Forensic Pathologist Lily Reid as they investigate the mysterious murder of Mason Jamison, a twenty year old college student, who was bitten by an Egyptian Cobra. While investigating the murder and potential threat to the park / forest environment and townspeople if the cobras were let loose and breeding in the area, Flynn and Lily engage in a steamy love affair, but can their relationship last if their own lives become threatened?
Deadly Secrets is a fascinating tale that perfectly intertwines an erotic romance with a suspenseful mystery. From the beginning, the reader is drawn into the murder mystery that brings Flynn and Lily together. It is a fast paced story that is very well written, I thought that the balance between the murder mystery and the steamy romance easily kept me engaged and turning the pages. The story was full of drama, suspense, and surprising twists and turns that kept me guessing; while Lily and Flynn's instant attraction was full of electricity that sparked a passionate and steamy romance that was truly swoon worthy.
I loved that the author provided the reader with accurate and knowledgeable information about the Egyptian Cobra, and while I am scared to death of snakes, I really appreciated the attention to detail that she took to weave a convincing mystery that featured this deadly species of snakes.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I really enjoyed the variety of cast of characters in this story. I enjoyed the chemistry that Lily and Flynn shared in their professional and personal life; while I also enjoyed the mystery and suspense of trying to guess who the leader of the group was that were releasing the cobras into the parks.
Deadly Secrets is an enjoyable erotic romantic suspense story that will easily keep the reader captivated from beginning to end!

About The Author
I grew up in Sydney but now live in sunny Queensland where I spend my days walking my dogs, reading and writing. Married for 41 years, my husband and I also enjoy a great deal of travel.
Hubby and I have just returned from visiting author friends in the US and gathering some great info for future books.
I hope you enjoy my latest release which is set in Canberra, Australia – the Nation's Capital. This story is purely fictional but there are numerous real places and facts covered. I could not have made it as realistic without the advice of the A.C.T. Police Media Centre and the Forensic Medical Centre at Sydney University. I am grateful to both.
