Review: Covert Cover-Up by Elizabeth Goddard

Covert Cover-Up is the second book in the Mount Shasta Secrets series. The main characters from book one, Deadly Evidence, do make some appearances in this novel, but it is not necessary to read book one in order to understand book two.

The action took off quickly in this story. It was clear that Beck was looking into something that someone did not want known. Something they were determined to keep hidden. And although I liked the action in this novel, I was not very fond of Katelyn and Beck, the main characters.

I was frustrated by Beck’s unwillingness to share information with the police, and even Katelyn frustrated me at times when she and Beck willingly hid what they were looking into and went places without letting anyone know where they would be. They made everything so hard on themselves by not seeking backup support from Katelyn’s family, who were also in law enforcement.

I did grow to like these two characters more as the book went on and was happy when things finally started going their way.

(3.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
