Whispering Pines is a small town in Wisconsin, filled with all kinds of quirky, fun, strange people. Wicc Jayne O'Shea has returned to her grandparents home to settle their affairs and place their home for sale. Wiccans seem to make up the majority. Seems like the dead woman had a tatoo similar to what is seen among the Wiccan. And then Jayne discovers that her grandmother was also involved. There's the man who can see when death is coming. Then there's the young girl who wants to learn the ropes But to what means?
All of these are suspects But Jayne is tenacious, if nothing else. Something sinister is affecting the town. I would love to think there are still small towns similar to this one Most of the residents are friendly and welcoming It's a well written story and I loved all the characters.
No one can resist Meeka Jayne's four-footed partner. I'm hoping this may turn into a series.

I had a hard time putting this book down. The author creates a level of suspense at many levels, leading the reader deeper into the mysteries, making us a part of the story through Jayne's MC thoughts. The story is complex but never confusing as the clues and solutions lead us into more questions.

In addition, the town of Whispering Pines has a supernatural component in that many of the the townsfolk, supposedly, have special talents. These talents are always acknowledged but never seen by our main characters, adding another layer of suspense to the mysteries. Whispering Pines definitely has a darkness hidden amongst its people.
The book has a good ending but the story doesn't end in that many of the secrets and mysteries continue. I had to buy the next book as soon as I finished this one.

Her descriptive writing style draws you in and keeps you. I read it in two days, I wanted to see what happened next but didn't want it to end. It is a mystery, but she weaves the story of her life and that of the locals in with it, so it is not just the mystery you find yourself getting involved with but also the workings of the town and the interesting dynamics of the personal lives of the reside I didn't want to put it down.

I liked the fact that McGuire treated Wiccan as a religion and not just a witchy, paranormal element for the storyline.

Her characters are well developed and I liked the relationship that was developing with Tripp. There is no sex and violence in this one. I sincerely hope that there is another book in this series. I loved it and recommend it to anyone that loves a well written mystery. I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received from the author. All thoughts are my own.

What a great mystery with a dash of paranormal! This is a very different series in more ways than one; the obvious contrast being the shift from YA to Adult.
When I first began reading Family Secrets I thought Jayne was an incredibly rigid, almost monotone, voice in the story. She was uptight in the beginning—understandably so—because of her family dynamic, her past career choices, and the love that she had to let go. The mistakes she made haunted her to the core. As I continued to read, though, her interaction with the villagers and her budding friendship with Tripp began to smooth her rough edges.
Of course, the most important bond in this story is the one she has with Meeka. Love that dog! I need a Westie now. I absolutely adore the organic, slow building connection Jayne makes with Tripp. Nothing forced about it. The mystery in this tale is brilliantly paced and captivating.hukusyuu.com/profile/2020-02-22/handy-mit-hacken.php

There are so many characters in this story as she meets the people who live and work in Whispering Pines, but not once does it feel overwhelming and every character was extremely well developed. Highly recommend to all fans of mystery and paranormal stories! Well done, McGuire! Feb 03, Natasha rated it really liked it. Whispering Pines is a secluded lakeside village frequented by tourists and inhabited by wiccans, carnies, and fortune tellers. The locals protect each other.
Tourists are welcomed to visit, but discouraged from lingering too long. Jun 08, BJ rated it it was amazing. LOVED this story! I avoid most fantasy, witchcraft, paranormal, etc. It's not 'over the top' witchcraft, but looking at Wiccan as a religious belief. I fell in love with McGuire's writing through her novellas in the Lei Crime Series KW, and she's brilliantly captured the 'feel' of the northern part of Wisconson.
Having spent a summer's week just outside of Madison, her descriptions almost had me scratching the mosquito bites I remember.
