DANGEROUS SECRETS, A Colonial Jamestown Historical Suspense Novel by Marilyn Clay is set in the year 1620.

"Master of historical detail, Marilyn Clay writes with intelligence and lyricism. In this page-turning tale of adventure and suspense, four young ladies set out for the New World on a Bride Ship from England in 1620. All four girls are looking for love, husbands and the adventure of a new life.

"However, each girl carries a secret and once they reach Jamestown, the ladies are instead drawn into a twisted web of lies and deceit that prevents each of them from finding the happiness they seek. It falls to one young lady to unravel the long dead secrets that lie just below the surface in the Jamestown settlement. The colonial village springs to life and readers quickly find themselves drawn into the character’s lives, wondering what will happen next. Also interesting is finding out what happened to Catherine and Phyrahawque, Adam and Noah, major characters in Marilyn Clay’s previous Jamestown novel, DECEPTIONS.  Both the premise and plot of DANGEROUS SECRETS is unusual and intriguing. You won't want to put this historical suspense novel down! A great read and highly recommended." - 5 Star Review, World Cat

"Reading DANGEROUS SECRETS is like stepping into history. Marilyn Clay has done an incredible amount of research into the period, how it would look and smell and feel if you were truly in 1620s Jamestown. The characters, and how they react, are just as authentic. The romances are sweet, touching and period appropriate. DANGEROUS SECRETS is the kind of book you want to get lost in. Thoroughly recommended."  - Janis May, author.

(DANGEROUS SECRETS was also published as SECRETS AND LIES; and in paperback as A PETTICOAT & LAMBSKIN GLOVES)
