In this shocking O’Connell family novel, a brother’s secret is exposed, opening up old wounds and creating a scandal that could rock the community.
Big brother Owen O’Connell was only 16 when his father mysteriously disappeared, forcing him to become a father figure to his five younger siblings. If you were to ask them, they’d say Owen is the perfect older brother with the perfect life: He’s single, a plumber, working his own hours in a close-knit community. Owen, though, knows that appearances are often deceiving.
When he is called to a plumbing emergency at the local high school after a grad prank goes wrong, he finds his old rival Tessa Brooks, now a teacher, holding a broken pipe in the middle of the flood, thinking she can fix the problem. However, the two soon make a horrifying discovery: the body of a student tucked away in a closet.
The event brings authorities flocking in, and in the ensuing chaos, Owen realizes that someone knows too much about his family. Having carefully held the family together since his father disappeared, he is determined to keep their secrets right where they are, dead and buried. But sometimes, secrets get revealed in the most scandalous of ways.
What will happen when the secret Marcus has been holding on to begins to unravel, and someone uses it as leverage?
One morning, Marcus O’Connell is confronted by his deputy, Harold Waters, about an accusation that he’s hidden evidence of a crime. Harold knows something is going on in the O’Connell family. Even his partner, Suzanne, is acting strangely. Harold has made it clear that he doesn’t do secrets, but Marcus isn’t too inclined to share the details of the O’Connells’ secret, even with Suzanne’s urging.
At the same time, he learns that the sentencing for those involved in the recent high school crime has been assigned to an overtly conservative judge who makes no apologies for his bias, letting privileged kids walk while tossing others away all because of who their families are. Marcus soon learns there is much more going on behind the scenes with the judge than he’s comfortable with.
Added into the mix is the fact that the adoption for Eva has suddenly taken a turn for the worse. Her grandfather wants to be a part of her life and is questioning Marcus and Charlotte’s fitness as parents. With everything weighing on Marcus, he needs to make some hard choices about coming clean with his family’s secret and taking a stand against the unfairness that has cropped up in a criminal case that should’ve been open and shut.
In finding a way to keep Eva in their family and close the adoption, Marcus may need to realize that carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders alone isn’t the answer - and that reaching out, asking for help, and trusting someone could be the only way to resolve everything.
Just what is the mystery behind Raymond O'Connells disappearance? NY Times and USA Today best-selling author Lorhainne Eckhart brings you The Family Secret, an O’Connell family novel, when a body is discovered at the edge of town, rumors, circumstantial evidence, and a chance for revenge lead to one family member’s arrest, and an all out effort to take several other O’Connells down as well.
“Wow what drama, what tension, what suspense.” (Susan Jordens)
“This was a very explosive and heart wrenching story. A body is found and the DA is out for blood. As long as it's O'Connell blood, he doesn't much care whose.” (KEC200)
Raymond O’Connell was the love of Iris’s life - from the day she met him, to the day a year later when she married him, to the tragic night before she never saw him again.
Some would say they had the perfect all-American life. Now, 18 years later, questions arise about the night her husband disappeared, leaving a bloody knife and a letter addressed to her, in which he said goodbye and told her not to look for him, with not even a second thought for her and their six children.
