Secrets Never Die by Laurie Lewis, Blog Tour!
Tallie Brown's life has never made any sense. Raised in isolation by her mother, Julia, Tallie was dragged suddenly and without explanation from one third-world outpost to another until life normalized seven years ago when Julia took a position on a mountaintop in the Pacific northwest. But when Julia unexpectedly dies, Tallie uncovers clues suggesting that Julia had a secret life.
Journalistic phenom Jackson James is still recovering from the devastating mistake that flatlined his promising career. Now he's paying the price, working as the editor of a syrupy community rag in a posh D.C. suburb. But when the very man who destroyed him drops a tantalizing lead about a potential D.C. scandal, the reporter sees his chance for redemption and sets off to chase the story.
Jackson's investigation leads him to Cutler's Ridge, a dying Virginia coal town, and directly into the path of the mysterious and beautiful Tallie. As these two mistrustful loners follow their leads, their stories begin to intertwine until they reach an alarming conclusion - something terrible happened in Cutler's Ridge. As they doggedly pursue the story, the town's cold reception spirals into threats and danger, proving that there are those who will stop at nothing to keep the past hidden forever - because secrets never die.
From page one I was hooked and could not put this book down! The action and mystery started from the beginning and didn't stop until the very end. Tallie's life was a mystery I kept trying to unravel...the more I learned, the more I thought I might never figure out what had happened! So many questions and the answers were just within her grasp; if she could put all of the clues together. With the help of Jackson, it seems that they just might find the answers they both are seeking. When I finished this book, I felt like I had just gotten off a roller coaster and I wanted to get back on! I am hoping that Lewis delivers a book two, because Tallie's story cannot end here!!! I highly recommend this book to any fan of mystery and suspense novels. This one is a home run!
