Summary:

Josephine Oliver has a secret.
As an assistant at security titan, Locke Industries, she’s presented with an opportunity to advance her career in the form of a test.

Josephine jumps at the chance to dig herself out of debt and earn the company’s respect on her way up the corporate ladder. But a visit with a potential client leaves her shocked, forcing her to reconsider everything she thought she knew about the company, those she works with, and herself.

When the client takes a particular interest in her, and his demands grow increasingly dangerous, Josephine must continue to fight for the life she’s always wanted or find a way to escape their clutches after learning the darkest secret of all.

In this installment of the standalone LOCKE INDUSTRIES SERIES, The Assistant’s Secret may be the one to destroy everything…

Review:

I was completely enthralled in “The Assistant’s Secret” from the moment I began this thriller.

Emerald O’Brien has a way of capturing you with the complicated characters initially and then the unexpected twists keep you wanting more.

Josephine met a number of challenges throughout this intriguing novel.

The ending was definitely a jaw-dropping and mysterious final turn in Josephine’s life!!!

I received a copy of this book by the author in exchange for fair and honest review.

4.25 Stars.

Summary:

After her recent separation, Tabitha Weaver is holding her life together by a thread. Luckily, her six closest friends have the perfect cure for heartbreak: a weekend in the countryside complete with relaxation, a blind date, and all the wine she can handle.

But it isn’t long before their night at the secluded rental house goes sour. The drinks flow a little too freely and lingering tensions arise before they’re interrupted by frantic knocking at the door. The stranger claims to have been in an accident, and though her head is bleeding, she refuses to let them call an ambulance.

With Tabitha distracted by her new beau, another friend leaving to check out the scene of the accident, and the rest of the group busy feuding, they lose track of the stranger’s whereabouts. It isn’t until she wakes up with a hangover that Tabitha finds a note on her dresser: Don’t stop until you find it.

Tabitha disregards the note, and the evening, and returns home believing the weekend is behind her. But when the strange woman is reported missing, the police start circling—the group must reexamine their accounts of what happened that night. And the discrepancies in their stories cannot be overlooked. It doesn’t help that the police have discovered clues to suggest foul play.

As the evidence mounts against them, loyalties are tested. Tabitha is desperate to find the truth about what happened to the woman.

Which of her friends is lying? Who can she trust?

A gripping psychological suspense for fans of Kiersten Modglin, Meghan O’Flynn, and Abigail Haas. If you liked Ruth Ware’s In a Dark, Dark Wood, you’ll love What She Found.

Review:

WOW!!!!!

Emerald O’Brien has written an action packed, powerful mystery with “What She Found”.

I was literally on the edge of my seat waiting anxiously to find out whodunnit…… of course I was wrong…….

The friendship between this group of friends was complicated and so many deep deceptive secrets showed up throughout the novel!!!

There were so many twists in here that I was literally shaking my head at the end and actually read the ending twice!!!! I had to let it sink in and was just “wowed” again!!!!

I would highly recommend that you read this haunting page turner – you will not be disappointed.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for fair and honest review.

5 Stars.
