Blog Tour! Sinful Secrets by Melissa Ohnoutka



Event planner Joanna McNamee is scrambling to ensure her father’s company Christmas party goes smoothly, but one disaster after another has her convinced someone is trying to sabotage her career. With the help of a man from her past who she’s still not sure she can trust, she puts the pieces together and realizes her business is the least of her problems—a cold-blooded killer is out to destroy her father and take her as his prized possession. The last thing Deputy Ryker Kane expects is for a simple truck hijacking to throw him back into the middle of the Black Widow case he’d been forced to abandon, not to mention right into the arms of the sweet woman he’d let walk away ten years earlier. When he finds Jo Jo kidnapped and drugged, he has to use all his wits and skills honed from years as a detective to save them both. Despite the secrets between them, Ryker’s bound and determined to give them a second chance at love.

I am really not sure if I liked this one or not. Parts of it were compelling and parts of it were odd to me.

I am not even really able to explain this without going into spoilers of the book, so I think I will leave this one at the idea that the way the plot was structured, it felt like it was backwards to me. Events that should have happened later in the book were at the beginning and those that should have happened earlier were more to the end. I see what the author was trying, a little change of the usual to make the book different. And it was, it just didn't work for me. The events that happened toward the end of this one were needed for me to feel emotionally invested in the things that happened at the beginning. If that makes any sense at all.

I think I recommend this book, but more for what it was trying to be than for what it actually was...again, if that makes sense.
