Sabrina Larson wants her fortieth birthday to be a major milestone—the beginning of a new life. But it looks more like the end for the Boulder, Colorado nurse when she mysteriously disappears while celebrating with her women’s group in a mountain wilderness area.

Search teams comb the region for days, but find no trace of her. Close friends and family fight bitterly amongst themselves telling different stories about what happened. Is she dead? Kidnapped? A runaway?

Cleo Sims, a local grief therapist who has discovered a process that lets grieving people contact the spirits of departed loved ones, is pulled in to help by one of Sabrina’s friends who is desperate to find out the truth. Cleo is reluctant to involve herself in yet another possible murder investigation, but the friend’s brother is Cleo’s benefactor who funds her Contact Project. When he prevails on Cleo to help find out what happened to the missing woman, she can’t refuse.

As the search goes on and the mystery deepens, Cleo finds herself digging into some dangerous secrets. As usual, her persistence, curiosity, and compassion keep her enmeshed in the investigation even when new developments threaten the very core of her personal life.

Too Many Secrets is the third book in the award-winning Cleo Sims mystery series set in the mountain community of Boulder Colorado. Like the others, it can also be read as a stand-alone book.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This rich mystery plot had me guessing all the way to the end. The descriptive detail helped me visualize each character and made the book all the more interesting.


A compelling mystery, convincing characters, a touch of the supernatural, interesting setting and a likeable female lead made this an enjoyable read. Lynn Osterkamp kept me caring about Cleo’s personal struggles and guessing about the outcome of the mystery until the end.


I would recommend this novel for readers who love mysteries, especially mysteries with a great female lead. However, even if you’re not a mystery lover, this book is well-written and entertaining!


Love love love this book and the others that came before! Thank you so much for the journey and your clear descriptions. I felt like I was there inside the story but not bogged down by redundancy…again, thank you for writing this book..and hurry up and publish more soon…I’m kind of addicted.


As in Osterkamp’s first two Cleo books, the twists and turns in Too Many Secrets, and the characters wandering through them, are cleverly combined. Besides, who wouldn’t welcome a session in Cleo’s apparition chamber? I was again way off base when I thought I knew who did it.
