Dirty Little Secret

The mysteries didn’t stay in Summervale…


Being married and settling into a beachfront home hasn’t prevented Darcie Ryder from unraveling mysteries. And her private investigation business just landed a doozy of a case. 


A little girl has gone missing in Salem, Massachusetts.


Yet this situation runs far deeper than a lost child.

Secrets and lies run deep in the girl’s family, which hit too close to home for Darcie’s liking. Terror roots deep in her core as she realises her own past might not be dead and buried after all...


One mystery leads to another in this highly-anticipated spin-off series to the bestselling Summervale series. 

Seven Bodies

Seven bodies 

Seven towns

Seven lives

Seven deaths


Knowing Darcie’s penchant for true crime, Bobby allows her a rare tour of the police station evidence room. He promised to keep her safe, but danger was already lurking nearby. 


Darcie knows her found family has her best interest in mind, but where’s the fun in playing it safe? She yearns for thrills, which is why she hasn’t told anyone about the text message she received on her honeymoon.


Seven bodies in seven towns.

Seven people with seven stories.

The police think they’re not connected.

Darcie knows better.


She is beginning to doubt her intuition when a ghost of her past speaks from beyond the grave, encouraging her to follow the clues and solve the case. Little does she know, doing so will mean betraying those closest to her and come face to face with pure evil. 


In the second installment in this spine-tingling series, L.L. Hunter delivers a knock-out punch in her bestselling Summervale series.
