I can tell just from the cover that Keep This to Yourself by Tom Ryan is not a book for me. And the synopsis very quickly corroborates this truth. A murder mystery, thriller novel that features a serial killer, a dead best friend, and a boy who feels like he’s being watched. I’m sure you can see fairly easily why I want nothing to do with this book. I’ve never enjoyed these kinds of tales. So, while this book may not be for me, maybe it will be for you?
It’s been a year since the Catalog Killer terrorized the sleepy seaside town of Camera Cove, killing four people before disappearing without a trace. Like everyone else in town, eighteen-year-old Mac Bell is trying to put that horrible summer behind him—easier said than done since Mac’s best friend Connor was the murderer’s final victim. But when he finds a cryptic message from Connor, he’s drawn back into the search for the killer—who might not have been a random drifter after all. Now nobody—friends, neighbors, or even the sexy stranger with his own connection to the case—is beyond suspicion. Sensing that someone is following his every move, Mac struggles to come to terms with his true feelings towards Connor while scrambling to uncover the truth.
