Promise You Won't Tell by John Locke

If you're anything like me once you enjoy a book written by a particular author you're likely to read more of their books if they've written more. As I enjoyed Call Me! so much I figured I'd move on to book 2 in the Dani Ripper series written by John Locke which is called Promise You Won't Tell. Here's what I thought about the second book in the series. 

About Promise You Won't Tell


“I think something might have happened to me Saturday night. Something bad.”

Private Investigator Dani Ripper’s client list is nuttier than the Looney Tunes conga line, but she diligently solves one crazy case after another, waiting for a game-changer.

Enter Riley Freeman, 17-year-old honor student.

Saturday afternoon Riley quietly placed a little strawberry sticker on her private area and pretended it was a tattoo. She didn’t tell anyone about it. That night she went to a slumber party that featured drinking and boys. Riley fell asleep, woke up the next day with no reason to think anything happened…

…Until Monday, at school, when a classmate called her Strawberry.

Coincidence or crime? Dani agrees to investigate. And the roller coaster ride begins.

I’m confident with the possible exception of Texas, it’s illegal to use your employees for target practice.

My thoughts on Promise You Won't Tell

As I said, Promise You Won't Tell is the second book in the Dani Ripper series - of which there are six altogether. In this book we learn more about the character Dani Ripper while also recapping what was discussed in the first book. You don't have to have read the first book to know what's going on in the second.

Dani Ripper is a strong female character who isn't afraid to tell people what she thinks - but she also has a soft side. I like her, even if she's not really someone I can relate to and I enjoy reading about her mistakes as well as her wins.

The story is interesting and, as with the first, there are twists and turns that keep you guessing where the story is going. Again I enjoy not knowing where a story is going - although I did kind of expect a twist. The short chapters continue in the second Dani Ripper book which keeps me turning the pages. I do enjoy reading short chapters, even if they're only a few pages, because it's easy to keep reading. 

Promise You Won't Tell is a quick read that will keep you guessing and have you smiling all the way through. If you enjoy quick reads that take you on a rollercoaster ride this one's for you.

Once the toothpaste is out of the tube, there’s no pushing it back in.
