You know what they say about family. Blood is thicker than water. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. A house divided cannot stand.

Margie is the keeper of her family’s secrets. Six sisters and one brother. Billions in assets. Generations of malfeasance. And one heartbreaking secret three people keep.

Margie. Her father, Declan. And Drew—the man she loves.

You know what they say about secrets.  Three can keep them if two are Drazens.

There's never been a Drazen who went down without a fight. And there's never been one who didn't fight for love.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Sacred Sins kept me on the edge of my seat!

My immersion back into the Drazen’s world was like slipping back into a favourite dream. With Margie at the forefront of this story, her thoughts and sharp wit shone a light on the hidden cracks she had spent her life time fixing. The family was about to find out how far you could push her before she ran out of steam.

I have loved every minute getting to know Margie but what blew me away reading Sacred Sins was my urge to read all the books featuring the Drazens again. What’s stopping me? One short annoying commodity—time. Maybe I need to create a list (now I’m feeling the stares from my blogging buddies wondering how many more list ideas can I come up with, LOL!) of series worthy of revisiting.

If you love a strong, staunch heroine with a checkered past, you need to meet Margie in the Sin Duet. For readers who have read the Drazen Series books, Margie’s aloofness suddenly makes sense. Instantly she transpires from being a two dimensional demanding and sensible older sister into a multi-faceted person who has sacrificed her life for the sake of her family, including the father she despises.

Unrequited love and the cruel hand of fate feed the suspense throughout the story. Love ignites when you least expect it. The fragility of truth is juxtaposed with looming threats from the keepers of the secret who are only waiting for a reason to lose their leverage on the tightly held metaphorical lid.

It’s important to note that the book ends at 70%. The good news is that the last 30% is dedicated to the novella, Beg. This is Jonathon and Monica’s book and the perfect lure to lead you down a potential reread. I was delighted to read this is not the last we will hear from the Drazen family, CD mentions Carrie and Leanne’s books are brewing in her head. Let’s hope they demand to have their story told soon!
