Her Secret Son By Hannah Mary McKinnon

How far would you go to protect the ones you love…when they may not be yours to protect?

When Josh’s longtime partner, Grace, dies in a tragic accident, he is left with a mess of grief—and full custody of her seven-year-old son, Logan. While not his biological father, Josh has been a dad to Logan in every way that counts, and with Grace gone, Logan needs him more than ever.

Wanting to do right by Logan, Josh begins the process of becoming his legal guardian—something that seems suddenly urgent, though Grace always brushed it off as an unnecessary formality. But now, as Josh struggles to find the paperwork associated with Logan’s birth, he begins to wonder whether there were more troubling reasons for Grace’s reluctance to make their family official.

As he digs deeper into the past of the woman he loved, Josh soon finds that there are many dark secrets to uncover, and that the truth about where Logan came from is much more sinister than he could have imagined…

Tightly paced and brimming with tension, Her Secret Son is a heartbreakingly honest portrait of a family on the edge of disaster and a father desperate to hold on to the boy who changed his life.

I was born in the UK, grew up in Switzerland and moved to Canada in 2010. After a long and successful career in recruitment, I quit the corporate world in favor of writing.

My first novel, Time After Time (a lighthearted rom-com) was published in June 2016. My second, the domestic suspense story The Neighbors, arrived March 2018. My third, Her Secret Son was released in May 2019, and my fourth is slated for spring 2020.

I live in Oakville, Ontario, with my husband and three sons, and I'm delighted by my twenty second commute.

My Thoughts...
WoW, is all I can say. I read this book in a few hours and I am still in awe. Mckinnon had me on the edge of my seat. I had to know all about Grace's son Logan and where he came from. The twists and turns were so very well executed. This is not a book to be missed. I HIGHLY recommend it.
I gave this book 5 stars. Run and get your copy.
