Can the sins of the past dictate your future?
For as long as she can remember, Jenny Miller has experienced intense intrusive visions. Plagued by graphic mental images of death and harm, Jenny is constantly on edge, always fighting to stay on this plane of reality. Until she gets one chance to learn if anyone else in her family suffered the same way.
When Jenny and her mother travel to a rural town to sell their legacy home, evidence of the past surrounds them and forces concealed secrets to the surface. But the more Jenny digs, the more she entrenches herself in a sordid past.
Soon after finding a hidden journal filled with disturbing messages, a local goes missing and the suspicions of the town’s sheriff turn toward Jenny and her mother. To prove their innocence, Jenny needs to come face to face with a killer who is more like her than she ever wanted.
With the clock ticking, can Jenny withstand her visions long enough to uncover the truth and save herself?
For fans of deeply layered thrillers by Alice Feeney, Lisa Jewell, and Catherine Ryan Howard.

I really, really enjoyed reading this book! It was absolutely thrilling and kept me hooked the whole time.
There's something about small towns and family legacies that lend themselves to uneasy feelings. Add a generational home and well-kept secrets and you've got yourself a compelling and gripping story that takes you on a thrilling ride.
Jenny's mother has always been quiet about her life "back home" and the family she left. Now that Jenny has the chance to go back to her mother's hometown, she's determined to get answers about her family and their history. Nothing is as it seems, not even Jenny's perception of the world around her. What can you believe when sometimes you can't even trust yourself?
This is a perfect read for anyone who loves twisted psychological thrillers filled with long buried secrets and unreliable characters. I loved every minute of it.
Thanks to #Netgalley and Silent Storm Publishing for the opportunity to read this book. I've really enjoyed all of Katlyn L. Duncan's books. #HerBuriedLives is more of my type of book. I love a good thriller.
I've been hooked from the beginning. I thought I knew who everyone was but I was wrong in the end. Great story.
First thing you should know is that my favorite books always contain small towns, creepy houses, or overall unsettling vibes. This book had all those things wrapped up into one thrilling package. Not only was the house a little more than creepy (the basement? Nope not me) but it was a generational home that held secrets that should have probably stayed buried. Overall the book was a compelling and gripping story that takes you on a ride.
Though Jenny suffers from intrusive visions, she's still excited to finally go to her mother's home town and figure out why she's always been so secretive about her past, and why they've never stayed in one place very long.' Jenny is determined to dig up all the secrets about her family and their history, even if it means there are things she didn't want to know. With Jenny's visions she becomes somewhat of an unreliable narrator of her own life and what is she supposed to believe when sometimes she can't even trust herself?
This is a perfect read for anyone who loves twisted psychological thrillers filled with creepy vibes, buried secrets and unreliable characters. it is well worth the read.
So many secrets which influence the present are uncovered in this intricate psychological thriller. Every page turned over a different stone, hiding yet another family secret. The characters are really well developed and truly make this book compelling. I wanted to know what happened to them and felt I had a real stake in the outcome.
Suspense and intrigue page after page of this incredible psychological crime thriller. A brilliant but shocking story that is very well written and impossible to put down. This deep layered novel keeps you thinking about life and family secrets well after finishing the last chapter. Very highly recommended to all psychological thriller readers and more than worthy of five stars.
