Book Review: Secrets So Deep

Genre: YA Mystery, YA Suspense Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

When I saw the cover of Secrets So Deep by Ginny Myers Sain, I thought it would be the perfect book to celebrate this spooky season. As a whole, it was pretty good, but not necessarily great.

The book follows Avril, a young woman who attends a theatre/summer camp, which also happens to be the place her mother died and she drowned as a child. Strange events start unfolding as soon as Avril arrives, and she is torn between reconnecting with her mother’s old friends, making new friends of her own, and avoiding the legends of the sea calling women to their deaths that seem all too real.

I have to say that the ending of the novel was definitely my favorite part. Not because it was spectacular or anything, but more so because it felt right. While it was certainly predictable, it was still a fun read. I did find the majority of the novel to be slow, but I think that’s like because I don’t read a lot of mysteries and thrillers. I guess I expected it to be…I don’t know… a little more thrilling.

Overall, I think people who generally enjoy mysteries and thrillers will like this book, it just wasn’t the right book for me.
