When Jesse Graham almost runs over a "body" in the road one night, she is plunged into a labyrinth of secrets, lies, and murder. All Jesse wants is a simple life teaching at St. Bart's and a chance at love with Joe Riley. She realizes that plan has been thwarted when puzzling occurrences at St. Bartholomew Academy for Girls get increasingly dangerous. The danger doesn't just spring from the ghost who haunts the grounds of St. Bart's, but from a sinister presence that is not ghostly at all. As she digs into the mystery, threats on her life and the life of her student escalate.

An intriguing entertaining and thrilling suspense!
Buried Secrets is a mystery mixed with a little bit of romance. There were so many twists and turns throughout the whole book to keep you entertained. Jesse is strong and full of such compassion and curiosity – sometimes this can her into trouble.
This book was well written, witty and enjoyable. It will keep you guessing up to the very end. The plot is exciting and believable while the characters are engaging. The scenes are vivid with good description so that you feel as if you were right there with the characters. Even though this is the second book in the series, you are able to read it without reading the first - it is a story uniquely its own.
Amy did a good job with narrating the audio book. The dialogue was well done. Her voice is smooth and gentle and she brings the characters to life by expressing the humor and strength of each character.
This was the second book by Elizabeth Meyette that I have had the pleasure to listen and read. I think I enjoyed it more than I did even the first book. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with a little bit of romance thrown in.

I Love Secrets!
Suspensful, engaging, fun
The plot was well crafted to keep me guessing about what the secrets were and who the real bad guys were. There were many levels of secrets.
She was perfect as Jesse Graham. She was also very good as Maggie and the various schoolgirls.
I enjoyed the story. There were several areas where I was talking back to the characters.
I received an audio copy of Buried Secrets in exchange for a fair review. A couple of things were new to me. The Cavanaugh House series and Audible.com. I am very pleased with both. Buried Secrets is the second book in the series, but even though I hadn't read the first book I easily understood the premise and didn't feel lost when characters talked about events from the first story. The characters in Buried Secrets are engaging and very three dimensional. You empathize with Jesse Graham while also getting frustrated by her very human missteps in her relationship with Joe, Scott and the students at the school where she teaches. I was drawn in by her struggles to accept her new life while holding on to her old values. The secrets in Buried Secrets were tantalizing and made me want to get to the end to find the 'who' and 'why'. I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator on the audio. She brought the characters and story even more life and was a pleasure to listen to. I am a fan of Ms Meyette's historical romances and I am a new fan of her Cavanaugh House stories as well.
