Promise Not To Tell

Summary: A painter of fiery, nightmarish visions throws herself into the sea—but she leaves her secrets behind . . .

Seattle gallery owner Virginia Troy has spent years battling the demons that stem from her childhood time in a cult and the night a fire burned through the compound, killing her mother. And now one of her artists has taken her own life, but not before sending Virginia a last picture: a painting that makes Virginia doubt everything about the so-called suicide—and her own past.

Like Virginia, private investigator Cabot Sutter was one of the children in the cult who survived that fire… and only he can help her now. As they struggle to unravel the clues in the painting, it becomes clear that someone thinks Virginia knows more than she does and that she must be stopped. Thrown into an inferno of desire and deception, Virginia and Cabot draw ever closer to the mystery of their shared memories—and the shocking fate of the one man who still wields the power to destroy everything they hold dear.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’ve read a handful of Jayne Ann Krentz’s romantic suspense stories over the year and I mostly find them satisfying (some more than others!) I thought after reading When All The Girls Have Gone that there might be more to that story and I was right- this is book 2 in the trilogy. Unfortunately, it took me awhile to get to book 2 since books just get lost in my Kindle (unfortunate, but true.)

However, I have been making more of an effort to get my Kindle cleaned up (and improve my Netgalley ratio) so I decided to give Promise Not To Tell a try.


What I liked:

The cover. Jayne Ann Krentz’s covers are really interesting.

The connection between Virginia and Cabot. Both of them suffered from a terrible event in their childhood and honestly- it could have ruined them. Instead, they fight back in their own ways and find out that together- they are much stronger.

The ending. Now I have to read book 3 ASAP.


Bottom line: It wasn’t super fantastic (I’ve enjoyed a couple other of her books a bit more) but it kept me entertained and flipping pages for a couple of days and I def want to finish the trilogy- so yay for that.
