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.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3.5 Stars
Southern Storm is another book in Natasha Madison’s Southern Series, and apparently picks up where Southern Comfort left off. It can be read as a standalone, but there are interconnected storylines and characters and Savannah plays a huge part in the story that is told in the first book, Southern Chance. I did not read the first in this series and DNF the second, so I felt like there were alot of plot points I was grappling with because I did not have the backstory.
So for that reason, I am giving this 3 stars. I didn’t like how the truth about Ethan’s paternity was kept hidden. And for Savannah being a single mom, there is barely any interaction between her ad her son, I liked Beau — he was an honest, sweet, caring guy. Surprising, since his dad is such a jerk. I felt like Savannah was dealt a bad hand, and there were certain things done to her by other people as a result of her pregnancy. People in town didn’t care for her much, but was that her fault or due to gossip? The relationship between Savannah and Beau grows nicely between friendship to a true romantic relationship, and there’s a nice arc in their story.
I really think I would have liked this story better had I read the others. I wanted to give this series another chance even though I couldn’t connect with Casey and Olivia in Southern Comfort. I likes Southern Storm, but I didn’t love it.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
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…
