Purchase Link for Sweet Tea and Secrets
Returning back to Adams Grove after the death of her grandmother, Pearl Clemmons, Jill is met with mixed emotions—she’s mourning the loss of Pearl but also not exactly excited to see her ex-fiancé, Garrett Malloy. She stays at her grandmother’s home to get her estate situated and there are a series of break-ins. That’s when they begin to realize their lives are in danger. Will Jill and Garrett find a way to escape the present danger and rekindle their romance?
Sweet Tea and Secrets is a polished and sophisticated, yet laidback novel with a down home country feel. From the start, I felt like I was pulled right in to the quaint town of Adams Grove. The relationship between Jill and Garrett was fun and sassy. I loved the physical tension and how it was sweet, exactly right up my alley. The re-development of their relationship was something that kept my interest throughout the novel.
Ms. Naigle’s writing style was detailed but not with an overkill of unnecessary information. The plot line was exciting and very believable and I wanted to know more when the story ended. This story was so compelling and I would love to read more about Jill and Garrett and the characters of Adams Grove. I give Ms. Naigle 5 Stars for Outstanding Fiction.
