Texas Secrets, Lovers' Lies by Karen Whiddon
This book has a good plot story but it is such a downer in all of it. There is a lot of action and suspense. I want some happy times in a romance. Zoe left 5 years ago Brock almost at the alter because she witnessed her mother's murder. Plus she had another secret that was a downer and kept her away from hometown. Now her best friend is missing. Everything she finds is more of a downer. A Tornado destroys a lot but they are saved. Sex scenes and no tender just saying it was a mistake. alcoholics and drug scenes, affairs, murder and attempted murder.
I think this was the wrong choice of book for me on this day. I liked the characters for the most part. I like that the heroine Zoe came back to help find her friend Shayna. She also writes a blog and gets lots of followers. She really tells her feelings on her blog because no one supposed to know who she is. I should have her help me learn how to do more with my blog!.
Two different people claim to be Shayna's best friends but they don't really know her what she was going through. Zoe realizes that she should have been a better friend. I think we can all be better friends before it is to late.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when finished by Netgalley & Harlequin.
