Dusty has always been a hothead, far more impulsive than her twin, Nick, the calm, cool and collected one of the pair. But Nick is dead, found murdered in their local cemetery, and Dusty simply can’t rest until she finds out who–or what–has killed her brother.
Sure the local authorities aren’t being straight with her–or anyone else–about what’s been going on in their little upper Michigan town, Dusty delays going off to college for a semester, defying her father and stepmother and taking a job in the local bar to start doing some digging.
Her focus soon fixes on Shane, her brother’s best friend and the town bad boy. The tension and rivalry between Dusty and Shane has always been palpable and sparks fly as the two collide. Dusty finds herself sinking in deeper with Shane and the mystery of what happened to her brother–and a lengthening list of victims–grows even stranger.
When everything comes to a head, Dusty focuses on one thing: What happened the night her brother was killed in the cemetery? She’s sure Shane is keeping a secret and she’s determined to find out what it is, one way or another.
Buried Secrets starts out with Dusty's twin brother being murdered. Everyone says it was an animal attack, but Shane her brother's best friend acts differently when it comes to questions about that night. So Dusty is bound and determined to find out who or what murdered her brother. Her whole world is turned upside down now. She doesn't want to go to college, and she doesn't want to be around her parents any longer either. Not only that but the feelings she's had for Shane are starting to come into play, and she's not sure what to do about. Especially with Shane keeping secrets from her.
I have to say the way Dusty's pain is described all through out this book was so good, I thought I had just lots a brother. That made the book good. But at the end when we find out what happened I have to say I was very disappointed. And I also ended up hating Dusty's brother. I think he was a selfish jerk, and he hurt Dusty more than anyone ever has. But no one really blames him for it. I couldn't stand him. So over all the book was okay. The ending was disappointing but other than that it was an interesting read. Very well written too.
