Book Review- The Secrets Bebeath By Kathleen Fuller
Rebekah Yoder has always been curious . . . or nosy depending on whom you ask. When a Yankee stranger moves into the house next door, she’s fascinated. Who is this strange old man who never waves or smiles? When Bekah sees him digging holes in his back yard, she’s sure there is a case to be solved.
Unfortunately, when her cousin blabs the story to the whole school, rumors fly. Is he hiding something? Treasure? Victims? And worst of all, annoying Caleb Mullet is now determined to solve the mystery with her. What they don’t realize is there’s not just secrecy lurking next door—there’s danger. Will Bekah take her curiosity too far?
I was concerned that this would be a boring book because of the age it is geared toward. Not so my friends! The Secrets Beneath is a captivating mystery with a twist at the end.
There is a small romantic element but it is kept very subtle and innocent. A big plus for a young adult fiction novel. I would totally recommend this book for a 12-16 year old to read.
