What happens when your secrets are revealed to the world?

You better hold on tight to the one person you think you can trust…

Just in case.

My Review

★★★★ 3.5 – 4 Stars ★★★★

This was a very interesting and different read for me, I enjoyed the mystery of the hidden secrets and the second chance love aspect very much.

Set in the mountains of Alabama, Scarlett Marbry has returned to her birth town from Chicago after the death of her grandparents. Scarlett left when her mother committed suicide and has always hated the hill-billy town that housed her mean old grandfather, but now she is back and she is hell bent on finding out why her mother could no longer bear to be alive.

Revell Marshall is the man she left behind when she was fifteen and he was a good few years older, but he is determined to finally lay claim to his woman, even if it does mean that she first goes through a nightmare to find her answers.

The descriptions and the way the author showed me the way of life of the deep south was fascinating and I was glued to the pages. Scarlett had a lot to deal with and it was hard to read when the family secrets were finally revealed, but the relationship between her and Revell was great, he was adorable and it was clear from the get go that he was the man who could bring her back to where she belonged.
