Hometown Secrets: The long awaited sequel to the first Linda Darby suspense mystery, The Woman, has been released. And Ryan Testler is back with her again.

Memories are funny things. The way they quietly hang around. Linger. Waiting for something we see or hear, or an unexpected event to slam them forward into our consciousness. To strike us the way headlights assault a dark road. Some memories bring along a smile, others foreshadow danger and there are those which cry out for resolution. All of this is true for Linda Darby.

Linda wonders if she might again be lured into her first lover’s bed. As the pace quickens she does find love, along with friendship, fear, danger, and opportunity. Clashes of personality and conflicts between the agendas of the principal characters eventually coalesce in ways Linda never anticipated.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Enjoyed this second book in the Linda Darby series. Very much enjoyed the characters and how they interacted – small town and history, people under pressure. What a combination.


Loved the twists and turns. Never expected the ending. Colorful descriptions of setting and characters. Easy read kept your interest right to the end.


Absolutely intriguing novel! This book goes from one suspenseful episode to another always leaving the reader guessing and trying to tie clues together. It truly is a can’t-put-down read. Highly recommended.


Excellent dialogue and the plot moves at lightning speed. This one keeps you guessing, and that is more than a lot of these books do. I recommend this one.


Once again David has given us a very good book to read, with great characters and a good story. Linda is a fun character to read about and Dix and Ryan are great also. If you want a good rainy day or any day read, this is for you.

Some personal comments from David:

I was born in Washington, D.C. From there my life likely mirrored that of a lot of my readers. We moved around. I got some education. Played some sports, and got some more education. Prior to becoming a novelist, I worked as a financial analyst determining the value of companies. But let’s talk about my current and final career, writing mystery novels.

As a writer, I conjure up occurrences designed to quickly bring the story to a roiling boil. Along the way, I invent people. Victims and villains and heroes are needed, as well as a supporting cast. I make these people fun and interesting so you will welcome them and introduce them to your friends. Primary characters need habits and tics and talents, the qualities that bring them to life and make you love them or hate them. You’ll want to see them humiliated or hunted down, be successful or seduced.

My mysteries offer you the opportunity to be challenged to find the villain from among the suspects. Clues as large as a log or as tiny as a bump thereon are salted throughout the stories. There are distractions in the form of false clues, called red herrings, which point to someone other than the real villain.

Take a journey with me. Laugh. Hold your breath. Cheer. Boo. The characters are rich and the plots are grabbers. I promise that you’ll be glad you came along. Some people don’t like golf or chocolate or even a hearty laugh. But I’ll bet you like some of those things and I’ll bet you’ll like my mysteries. Yours very truly, David Bishop
