I didn’t know this was a sequel…and it’s not even listed as such in the title on Goodreads. Either way, I’m hoping Tumble Creek doesn’t require a dependency on book 1 and can read as a stand-alone. I started it just yesterday so I’m not too far into it, but so far I’ve met Sophie (not that I know a lot about her besides she’s an art teacher) and her friend Britt has mysteriously disappeared. Her art students say the rumor is she’s in witness protection. It will be interesting to find out!
In the sequel to Home Truths, Louise Forster returns to the sleepy country town of Tumble Creek with the story of a cop, a teacher and a mystery that will bring them together—or tear them apart.
Art teacher and occasional life model Sofie Dove wants to know what’s up with Brock Stewart. Everything about the ex SAS soldier turned police officer seems to scream passion—and it’s all for her—but he just won’t express it. All she knows is that he has a past that still keeps him up some nights.
After a semi-trailer crashes through Sofie’s house and the driver disappears into thin air, Brock insists he’s the only one who can keep her safe—but can he, when they can’t seem to trust each other?
While Sofie works on figuring out why this man keeps giving her mixed messages, Brock is determined to find out who’s out to get her—as they both find out why falling in love is a bit like being hit by a truck.
What did you just finish reading?
I finished Blue Steal Tuesday morning and the ending was spectacularly crazy. Not unbelievable, just a bizarre series of events that bring all the living Holloway relations to the once-grand Empire hotel. I was dying to know where the Petrovsky sapphire necklace was hidden since it never turned up after the “burglary” 50 years before or the previous week when the matching ring was found at the bottom of the dumb waiter shaft. Despite the story that her great-uncle told the police, the truth is revealed and Selina does find the sapphires. Now her sister’s expensive surgery can happen…but Lewis is still looming over her. There were some excellent examples of figurative language sprinkled throughout, especially toward the end. Some were quite comical…as long as it someone else’s situation.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I still have to write up my review of Blue Steal, and I’m sitting at 8% for NetGalley. Continuing on with some summery-looking NG reads. While I probably won’t meet my goal of 50 NG books by the end of the year, I’m thinking I have a good chance of being at 12% by the end of the year. If anyone knows how to remove approved books that you never downloaded, I’d love to know (if that’s even possible). It’s progress!
How about you? What are you reading this week?
