Morgan Dane is a defense attorney. She works along with Lance Kruger who is a P.I. The two are newly engaged and were once in a relationship when they were in high school. When a teen boy is the primary suspect in the murder of a sheriff's deputy, Morgan and Lance investigate the death and try to prove the boy's innocence.

Morgan and Lance are finally settling into domestic life, and have just dealt with the difficult scenario of Morgan's three little girls dealing with the flu. Just as things settle down and they could possibly get a good night's sleep, they receive a phone call that throws them into a complicated case.

When they discover the shooting of the deputy and the fact that the stepson is missing, Lance is eager to help. He coaches Evan in hockey and is positive Evan couldn't be the killer. But Evan has disappeared and Lance and Morgan desperately try to discover his whereabouts.

Secrets Never Die is the fifth book in the Morgan Dane series. I haven't had the opportunity to read the previous novels, and I think this did great as a standalone. While the couple struggle to locate Evan, he is on the run for his life. There are a lot of clues, and sadly, a few point to his guilt. But, again, Lance knows Evan couldn't have been capable of such a brutal crime.

What a thrilling story! Much like a chase, from beginning to end. The thing is, the reader knows from the very outset that Evan isn't the killer. Now Morgan and Lance have to find him, and also discover the true killer. I found this story by Melinda Leigh to be captivating from the very first page and the tension, drama and danger never let up. I will most definitely continue the series. The next book is Save Your Breath, scheduled for release this September.

Many thanks to Montlake Romance and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion. ( )

This I’d the first book I’ve read by this author and I liked it. It is the fifth book in this series but it works perfectly as a stand alone.. The plot was intriguing and the characters were well developed. The story begins when a teen, Evan, witnessies his step-father’s murder and goes missing. The cops are focusing on Evan as the murderer. Morgan, Lance and Sharp, a team of private investigators, are hired to find him and help prove his innocence. They must find him before the cops or the murderer does. It’s a gripping tale and is suspenseful from beginning to end. After reading this, I’m interested in reading more by this author. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. ( )

Secrets Never Die is the fifth installment of the Morgan Dane series and it was a well-rounded crime mystery that kept me wondering what was going to happen next a good part of the time. This series has three established main characters, lawyer, Morgan Dane, and private investigators, Lance Kruger and Lincoln Sharp, who have a rhythm together that really helped in understanding the crime and made solving the mystery go quite smoothly.

While reading this book I could tell that there was a history between these characters but I never felt as if I was missing anything by not having read the previous books. What I enjoyed most about reading this story was that it felt authentic, as if this was breaking news and I was able to follow along with the investigation. There was some savagery in this story but nothing that was so over the top to make it unbelievable.

The start of this story was quite impactful and absolutely made me desire to understand what prompted the opening scenes. There was action and even some gripping moments as well. Although there wasn’t a major focus on romance with all the sexual tension that comes with that, much of this story was also about Morgan and Lance with their exploration of what the new step in their relationship was shaping into.

The mystery was even-paced with some excitement. There was suspense but I wish there had been more, it lacked the “on the edge of your seat” type of suspense that has you flipped the pages as soon as possible. There were interesting twists and turns but nothing that was shocking. It was not a disappointing read by any means, I was just hoping for more of a punch. Overall, Secrets Never Die had likable characters that really drive the story and make this a series that I would love to continue!

This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating. ( )

This latest in the Morgan Dane series finds Morgan and Lance living together in the middle of a remodeling project and with Morgan's girls recovering from a bout of flu. When the phone call comes at 1:39 AM telling them that one of Lance's hockey players is missing and his stepfather - a retired sheriff's deputy - murdered, Morgan and Lance immediately go to try to find Evan Meade.

The Sheriff soon begins to suspect the Evan is not a victim but, rather, is the killer. Evan has had some trouble with the law and was recently seen arguing with his stepfather. But Lance is certain that Evan is a victim and is determined to find him.

Looking for Evan means looking into his stepfather Paul's death. The more they investigate, the more questions they have. First Paul's former partner is a suspect, but then he disappears under suspicious circumstances, and they are back to the beginning of their investigation again.

Then a secret from Evan's mother's past turns the investigation in a new direction... While Lance's partner Lincoln Sharp and investigative reporter Olivia Cruz pursue the new lead. Morgan and Lance continue the hunt for Evan and deal with three-year-old Sophia's trip to the ER with flu and a raging fever.

I enjoyed the sections from Evan's point of view which gave us lots of information about him and the trouble he was going through as he ran from the man who killed his stepfather, dealt with a gunshot wound in his arm, and wondered who he could trust.

I also enjoyed the excitement and fast pace of this story. It was a great blend of pulse-pounding action and danger and chaotic family moments. Did I mention that Lance and Morgan are also supposed to be planning their wedding? ( )

This is a part of a series and she gives a fairly good accounting of who is who, I personally like to start from the beginning. In this book we have the originals and honestly the main characters of Morgan and Lance who are a couple and work together and their relationship just keeps growing. They were awoken at night by a friend who let them know that her child was missing and the dad was found dead at home. Next comes the conflicts and chaos that resume but Morgan and Lance will work hard to figure out who is the culprit and the lies that are hiding..Suspenseful..Enjoy!

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) Voluntarily reviewed with my own thoughts and opinions. ( )
