How far would you go to protect the ones you love…when they may not be yours to protect?

When Josh’s longtime partner, Grace, dies in a tragic accident, he is left with a mess of grief—and full custody of her seven-year-old son, Logan. While not his biological father, Josh has been a dad to Logan in every way that counts, and with Grace gone, Logan needs him more than ever.

Wanting to do right by Logan, Josh begins the process of becoming his legal guardian—something that seems suddenly urgent, though Grace always brushed it off as an unnecessary formality. But now, as Josh struggles to find the paperwork associated with Logan’s birth, he begins to wonder whether there were more troubling reasons for Grace’s reluctance to make their family official.

As he digs deeper into the past of the woman he loved, Josh soon finds that there are many dark secrets to uncover, and that the truth about where Logan came from is much more sinister than he could have imagined…

Tightly paced and brimming with tension, Her Secret Son is a heartbreakingly honest portrait of a family on the edge of disaster and a father desperate to hold on to the boy who changed his life.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
Holy crap! McKinnon just might be a new favorite author of mine! I was absolutely blown away by all of the emotions that McKinnon has triggered in me with this utterly amazing novel. From start to finish, McKinnon created a story line that is real, that is gripping, and compelling, and filled it with characters that steal your soul.
I loved the feeling  of being wrapped up in the suspense of following Josh and Logan after Grace passes away. The intensity that she writes with as she creates the ups and downs of what really lies behind Grace and her son Logan and Josh wanting to adopt him, is breathtaking. When I reached the end, I was left holding the book, and wanting another amazing novel from her talented hands!
Filled with whos, whats, and whys, this novel is 4 star worthy and I highly recommend it to all suspense lovers. The emotional roller coaster ride that you’ll be on is worth every late night reading session, every intense, heart pounding moment. If you want a stunningly written novel that will give you all the emotions and suspense, then this is absolutely the one for you. I can’t wait to read another novel from this truly talented author!

My first novel, Time After Time (a lighthearted rom-com) was published in June 2016. My second, the domestic suspense story The Neighbors, arrived March 2018. My third, Her Secret Son was released in May 2019, and my fourth is slated for spring 2020.

I live in Oakville, Ontario, with my husband and three sons, and I’m delighted by my twenty second commute.
