Description (from Goodreads)

Cassie Scot, still stinging from her parents’ betrayal, wants out of the magical world. But it isn’t letting her go. Her family is falling apart and despite everything, it looks like she may be the only one who can save them.

To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan her life, making it difficult for her to deny him anything he really wants. And he wants her. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls missing from summer camp, but long-buried secrets may ruin their hopes for happiness. Book 2 in the Cassie Scot Mystery series.


I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

This is the second book in the Cassie Scot series, and it starts where the first book left off. Just like the first book, Cassie Scot Paranormal Detective, once I started Secrets & Lies it was hard to put down. Christine Amsden has a great writing style that flows well and is easy to read. 

Not only does Cassie have a disappearance of a distant cousin to look into, but she ends up having to do it with Evan. She is conflicted about spending so much time with him because she’s still trying to figure out her feelings.

Cassie experiences a lot of heartache in this book but she’s strong…stronger than she realizes. Her friends are also dealing with a lot and, of course, she wants to help them deal with their problems too.

Secrets & Lies is full of drama, action, magic, and twists. I recommend it to readers of all ages.
