Tuesday, February 19, 2013
 Synopsis: Seattle hairstylist Violet Murphy always knew the day would come when her best friend Gabe Parker would want to settle down. She’d secretly wished it would be with her, but now that he’s chosen someone else—the prim, perfect Alycia—he wants Vi to be his best man.

Healing her broken heart isn’t easy, but when Violet meets Landon Harlow, a man who isn’t fazed by her funky style and less-than-delicate attitude, she takes a step in the right direction. Until Gabe’s fiance’s gorgeous facade begins to crack, and Violet’s disturbing past comes back to haunt her, that is. Vi now finds herself armed with a series of lies that would break Gabe’s heart—and his engagement—if he knew their truth, and a secret from their childhood that could change everything.

With the wedding looming, her relationships unraveling, and the bachelor party of the century to plan, Violet must choose between a fresh start with Landon, or confronting her painful past and risking it all for a chance at a future with Gabe.

Review: Keeping Secrets in Seattle is a great book. The story is about Violet and Gabe that’s been friends since kindergarten. Violet has been in love with Gabe since there brief dating experience at sixteen but has never told Gabe what broke them up. At a family dinner Gabe announces he is getting married to the model he’s dating and wants Violet to be his best man. Ms. Moss writes a descriptive story of wedding plans and trying on the dreadful briadmaids dress we can all relate too. In the mist of bridal planning Violet finds disturbing information about the bride and starts a new relationship with a man hoping to get her mind off of Gabe.  Violets conflict and emotions can be felt throughout the book as she works out her feelings for Gabe and deals with Gabe’s bride to be I find that the story flows easy and all the sub plots come together to form a perfect ending. Violet will make you feel frustrated, excited and happy but you want be bored. This book is definitely a keeper.
