Title: Let the Dead Lie (McKay, #1)
Author: W.L. Brooks
Stars: 3 stars out of 5
I loved the idea story but the excursionist was lacking. At times the story was a struggle to fully understand due to the verbage (Sp) that was being used. I understand that it was suppose to be a little on the backwoods side but had the author given readers a year in which the story was taking place I think it would have help understand the way people communicate or reacted to certain events.
It is a sweet romance with enough mystery for reader to enjoy. Romance was odd at best of times and confusing. The story didn't flow as well as I had hoped which could be due to editing or the authors writing style.
The author sets the story up to follow the adoptive girls as they turn into women leaving a cliffhanger open to keep readers hooked. If you follow the story well enough the cliffhanger I don't think will be much a of a cliffhanger at all.
While I really wanted to love this book I found the writing style, the editing and lack of time confusing.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of the book for my review.
A widower with four adopted daughters, Emmit McKay likes to keep a handle on things. But nothing can prepare the former FBI sharpshooter for the battles coming to his small hometown. Especially the one which arrives in such a tempting package.
Savannah Walker moves to Blue Creek to take over as principal of the school Emmit’s daughters attend. With a masters’ degree in education and a no-nonsense attitude, she is caught off guard by the behavior of the McKay girls and never expects to fall in love with them—or in lust with their father. But her intimacy with the family stirs up rumors and unearths secrets.
Savannah and Emmit cannot deny the chemistry which draws them together, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the stakes become. When a murderer is hidden amongst you, you can’t let the dead lie.
