Her Darkest Secret by Jessica Patch @harlequinbooks #loveinspired #suspense #fiction # bookreview


When a cold-case serial killer returns, FBI special agent Fiona Kelly has one last chance to stop him before he claims the prize he’s always wanted—her.

The sight of a goose feather at a murder scene modeled after a children’s poem is enough to make FBI special agent Fiona Kelly’s blood turn to ice. Almost two decades ago, a feather was left with her sister’s body—and with every subsequent victim of the Nursery Rhyme Killer. Now he’s back. Only this time, his latest gruesome murder is a message to the only one who ever got away: Fiona.

Finding “Rhyme” is an obsession that’s fueled Fiona’s career—and destroyed her marriage to fellow FBI agent Asa Kodiak. Now Fiona and Asa have to put their past tensions aside and work together one last time. But Rhyme is watching, and catching this killer may force Fiona to reveal her biggest, darkest secret…the one only he knows.

“Her Darkest Secret by Jessica R. Patch grabbed me in the first scene of this edge-of-your-seat suspense and didn’t let go until the end!”—Patricia Bradley, author of the Memphis Cold Case novels


The Rhyme killer is back. It has been 20 years since Fiona’s sister was murdered and left with a feather. Now, Fiona has been called in to a murder with the same MO. And…it is a message for her!

I loved the setting of Memphis. Since I live about an hour from this crime ridden city, I knew every place in this book. Jessica did a fabulous job with this setting and the suspense to go along with it. I felt like I had a Criminal Minds episode going through my head. She really nailed the imagery…I mean…honestly….the feather, the name of the killer, Rhyme, and the FBI agents. I am telling you…Criminal Minds!

Now, it has a bit too many religious connotations for me. But that is my issue. As most of you know, I am not a Christian fiction reader. But, I did enjoy this suspenseful tale! This is a good one!
