SECRETS OF THE RED BOX
by Vickie Hall



Biography

I'm a native of Utah, but grew up in the states of Montana, Nebraska, Idaho, and Colorado. I love to go camping with my family, enjoy travel and have a great love of history. My favorite quote is by George Eliot:"It's never too late to be what you might have been."
OVERVIEW (FROM AMAZON)
Bonnie has secrets to keep - secrets with the potential to destroy lives, including her own. Running from her destructive and pain filled past, she recreates herself, believing she has escaped the damning evidence hidden in the red box. When her former life is revealed by a cruel twist of fate, Bonnie faces losing everything, including Glen, the only man she’s ever loved. But is Bonnie the woman he thinks she is? Set against the backdrop of the 1940s, Secrets of the Red Box is filled with intrigue and suspense - sure to keep you guessing to the very end!



REVIEW:
I didn't particularly care for Bonnie at first.  She was a liar.  You slowly find out from her flashbacks just what her mental state is.  You start to feel sorry for  the awful childhood she had to go through. But as an adult.she hurt people and lied continuously. Is there an excuse for that.?Bonnie kept a whole box full of secrets and secrets can destroy.Bonnie met Glen and romance begins.  But could the lies and secrets ruin this?  Do her secrets have anything to do with the Red Box? This  book is part mystery and part romance.taking place in the 1940.'s., WWII.  So many  surprises as you turn the pages. It will keep you wondering and guessing about what is going on..  This was a page turner for sure.  The author paints the characters so that you can almost visualize them. What was in the box that Bonnie held so dear?  What did she do since she seemed well to do.?The author keeps you in suspense until the very end. which I felt kept me intrigued and reading.  When you find an author who keeps you intrigued without giving you too much until the end, you've found a winner.  I feel this book is a winner.

I would give this book 4.5 Stars

I received a complimentary copy of SECRETS OF THE RED BOX from the author, Vickie Hall for this unbiased review.
