I’ll Never Tell

Summary: What happened to Amanda Holmes?

Twenty years ago, she washed up on shore in a rowboat with a gash to the head after an overnight at Camp Macaw. No one was ever charged with a crime.

Now, the MacAllister children are all grown up. After their parents die suddenly, they return to Camp to read the will and decide what to do with the prime real estate it’s sitting on. Ryan, the oldest, wants to sell. Margo, the family’s center, hasn’t made up her mind. Mary has her own horse farm to run, and believes in leaving well-enough alone. Kate and Liddie—the twins—have opposing views. And Sean Booth, the family groundskeeper, just hopes he still has a home when all is said and done.

But then the will is read and they learn that it’s much more complicated than a simple vote. Until they unravel the mystery of what happened to Amanda, they can’t move forward. Any one of them could have done it, and all of them are hiding key pieces of the puzzle. Will they work together to solve the mystery, or will their suspicions and secrets finally tear the family apart?


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

First, you should know that I am a sucker for a book set at camp. I don’t know why. I never went to camp (too many mosquitoes, too much nature) but I love the creepy/sinister vibe a camp story generally has.

So did I LOVE I’ll Never Tell?


What I liked:

The cover. Creep-tastic!

The camp setting. I love that they all returned to the scene of the crime. Plus camp setting are just crazy fun for books.

The family. Each family member had secrets- which worked to up the mystery level.


Bottom line: This was my first Catherine McKenzie book. I did enjoy much of I’ll Never Tell- there were bits that didn’t work so much for me- but overall, an enjoyable read.
