When our online book club decided to add a summer thriller to our lineup for July, I'll Never Tell by Catherine McKenzie was an easy choice. This book makes a great beach read and will keep you turning pages until the very end.

In I'll Never Tellthe five MacAllister siblings gather at their family's summer camp for the reading of their parents' will. They expect it to be a simple decision as to whether they should sell the camp, but it quickly becomes far more complicated.

Twenty years before, their friend Amanda was bludgeoned at the camp and the crime remains unsolved. As part of Mr. MacAllister's will, the siblings must solve the crime before they can decide what to do with the camp. Suspicions, secrets, and lies are all uncovered as they come to grips not only with the past but with the ties that bind them together.

Each MacAllister sibling (and Sean) is keeping a secret about the night that Amanda was attacked. How did these secrets affect their relationships over the next 20 years? What might have changed if they had told the truth?
