Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South
I’m the one who broke up the golden couple. The woman people still whisper about, point at, and give dirty looks to.
Did I sleep with the prom king? No. Did I sleep with the town's golden boy on vacation from college? Yes.
Did I believe that he was going to marry me? Wholeheartedly.
Did he? Not even close. He got engaged right in front of me and then his father threw two hundred dollars at me and told me to take the trash out.
So, I raised my son in a town where people love him because they think that his father is the sheriff.
It was going great; everything was working out till my lie got out.
I was getting ready to take over the mayoral office from my father, who was my hero.
Until I heard the secret he hoped would stay buried forever.
My brother has a son, not just any son but a son with the woman who was my best friend.
The woman I secretly have loved from the moment she stood up to me and broke my nose in kindergarten.
I need to protect her and in order to do that, we need to get married.
Too bad her nightmare is my dream come true.
Southern Storm is such a free spirited, down home, small town feel type of read. The characters speak to you in volumes, and the story-line is quite relatable. This is the third book in the series, however; it is not necessary to read the books prior. I am positive that it will add to the story, although this was the first book that I read in the series. Not once did I feel lost or felt that I was missing anything. This attests to the talent of Natasha Madison. Her writing is so meticulous that she never skips a beat.
I absolutely fell in love with Savannah and Beau. Childhood friends that want more, although neither one of them realizes what the other wants. What I will say is that Beau would do anything in his power to make Savannah happy. He has a heart of gold and wears it on his sleeve. There are many, many obstacles that they need to overcome and solve a crime amongst those hurdles. Natasha Madison is a new to me author, although I am anxiously awaiting the next in the series … Southern Sunrise.
When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four-inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
