Thank you to Minotaur Books for the eARC of this novel to read and review.



It’s not always easy to live in the hidden town of Rockton, something Detective Casey Duncan knows firsthand. Tucked away in the Yukon wildernee community survives—and thrives—because the residents’ many secrets stay just that—secret.

But what happens when these secrets start to come out? Overnight, no one is safe. It’s not a question of if your secret will come out—but when.

Casey and her boyfriend, Sheriff Eric Dalton, need to find the culprit while protecting those who have been thrust into the spotlight. For a place built on privacy and new beginnings, Rockton isn’t handling these revelations very well. People are turning on one another, and when one of the loudest complainers turns up barely alive, it’s clear that their trickster is actually a murderer.

The threat of exposure is reaching its breaking point, and no one knows what’s going to happen next. 



I am a huge fan of Kelley Armstrong’s Rockton series and was thrilled to learn about the latest novel in the series, The Deepest of Secrets. So of course as soon as I got my hands on a copy of this novel I began to read it. Of course I was also not disappointed.

I love Detective Casey Duncan and Sheriff Eric Dalton’s characters. I was a huge fan of them both from the earlier novels in the series so I was thrilled when they officially became a couple together. I have enjoyed reading about their relationship and how they make it work inside the town of Rockton, where everyone is there for a reason. All residents in the town of Rockton are there for a reason – they have secrets from their past, crimes they have committed, that landed them there in the town of Rockton. Everyone in Rockton has their secrets but the residents don’t know what others’ secrets are and they all live relatively peaceful. Of course the town does have their fair share of crime inside the town of Rockton, but that’s what Casey and Eric are for. I loved following along and learning about all the characters in the storyline and inside Rockton. They all work together to make Rockton as peaceful and normal as they can, and deal with things as they come up.

In this latest novel, The Deepest of Secrets, somehow someone has learned about all the residents secrets and why they are in the town of Rockton in the first place, and are somehow spreading those secrets throughout the town. Things in Rockton are crumbling, and Casey and Eric have to find out who is causing all this turmoil and tearing their town apart. The Council is wanting to shut down the town of Rockton for good but Casey and Duncan are trying their best to save their town.

A definite must read if you have been following along with the town of Rockton series. If you are new to reading about the town of Rockton I cannot recommend this series enough, you are truly missing out on an addictive, compelling, entertaining series and you will fall in love with this series, the town and it’s residents. Although I think you can read this book as a standalone, as there is plenty of backstory given about many of the characters in the book and it’s residents, I highly recommend that you go back and read this series in order from the very first novel, finishing with this book in the series.

I have loved reading about the town of Rockton and learning about all of the residents, their secrets, and following their journeys, and am sad to learn that this is the last novel in the series. I could and would definitely read more books in this series, and wish this series would go on forever, it’s that good!

Well done Kelley Armstrong!
