Forbidden love and family drama have never been more alluring than in As The Secrets Turn by B. Truly. There is a mystery, suspense, intriguing characters, and a touch of the supernatural to be found. This enthralling novel is so beautifully written and haunting that it captured my attention right away. It’s filled with many dark secrets, twists, and sisterly drama that left me breathless and clinging to the pages, wondering what could come next. The story is packed with romance, heartache, and also wisdom. I love Madison for her non-judgmental nature, her ability to fight for justice, and her never giving up despite all her dark secrets, fears, and vulnerabilities. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great suspenseful read.

B. Truly's As the Secrets Turn is the third book in the My Darkest Secret series. I read the first book in this series so I appreciate getting to know what happened to Madison and Justin once they grew up. If you haven't read the other stories I would definitely recommend it because it is a fantastic series, but you can still read this book even if you haven't read the others. I am never disappointed with Truly's writing. She does a great job of developing believable compelling characters and setting up the stage for the story. There's enough backstory so that you can understand what's going on and Truly jumps right in with action and drama from the first page. A story full of love, drama, action, and a little splash of crazy. You won't regret reading it!

Shortly before her wedding, Madison is informed by a psychic that a catastrophe would occur at the resort where she is vacationing and that the circumstances surrounding it would complicate her marriage. When a horrific incident occurs only a day before her wedding at the precise location she is to be married, she recalls the psychic's words and has reservations about getting married as planned. Unfortunately for her, buried threats resurface and a family member goes missing, forcing her to deal with even more stress. Will Madison and her relationship withstand the plethora of troubles coming her way? As The Secrets Turn: My Darkest Secret Book 3 by B. Truly features forbidden love, spiritual themes, and surviving traumatic experiences. It includes a tenacious protagonist who fights to maintain her relationship in the face of numerous challenges.

The charming protagonists who make amusing, flirtatious remarks and can't keep their hands off one other are one of the book's many appealing characteristics. When I read phrases like, "Flattery will get you everywhere" and "We've come a long way, mi amor," I found myself grinning with joy and warming to the characters. However, the delightful moments are cleverly matched by unsettling discoveries and intense suspense. Madison's determination to recover from her traumatic past and fight back against a bully is both inspiring and energizing. B. Truly's narrative is made more intriguing by the inclusion of spiritual themes like psychics, near-death experiences, and communication with ghosts. As The Secrets Turn is a spell-binding story that will engage you with its multiple twists and surprises and its adorable characters. If you enjoy forbidden romance, you deserve this treat!
