Susan McBride, author of Little Black Dress, has released another wonderful title, The Truth About Love and Lightning. At about half way through this title I found myself extremely anxious to get back to it after stopping for those pesky house task or chores such as cooking dinner or work. This novel is full of interesting and colorful characters as it weaves a tale like no other, keeping your interest from the start. Here's a synopsis to enjoy.
As far as Gretchen Brink is concerned, the tornado that just ripped through her land has nothing on the storms of a different sort happening all around her. Her grown daughter, Abby, has returned home with news that she's pregnant, and no, she's not sure whether she's going to marry the father. A man with no memory has been dropped practically on her doorstep. And the not-so-little white lie she's been telling for years is about to catch up with her.
Abby is sure that the mysterious man is her long-lost father, Sam, who has finally returned just when she needs him most. As Abby, Gretchen, and the Man Who Might Be Sam get closer, the lie Gretchen told all those years ago begins to haunt her. When her secrets come out, and Sam's past is finally revealed, will it tear down this fragile life they've built—or will the truth bring them all closer together?
The Truth About Love and Lightning was released and available in stores on February 12, 2013. Making it a perfect Valentines gift for any book worm! I absolutely loved the charming characters, interesting and engaging story line and the uniqueness this book offered. There are tidbits of the author scattered throughout this book, which made me smile. How anyone can come up with such imaginative and inventive stories while keeping it full of warmth, love and allure still baffles me, but Susan is one of those authors that does it again and again! Don't miss reading this one! Find out why it's all the rave among book lovers everywhere. Oh, and hopefully your life isn't as busy as mine. This was the first book I read this year and is only joined by one other book. That's NOT normal for me! I hope you've been able to read more than I have lately!!
