    1. A fast paced, easy read I finished in two sittings I thought the characters were vivid and not entirely predictable in their actions, which added to the suspense I m finding it difficult to write this review without giving away the plot The author weaves a good crime story about greed and corruption in a small town with an emotional love story, which includes a dark element of wife beating I enjoyed the complexity of the relationships between the main characters and for me it is the sign of a go [...]

    18. There is nothing uniquely brilliant about Magnolia Secrets, but that doesn t necessarily make it not an excellent read For a quiet Sunday afternoon, it was a book I enjoyed reading There is nothing overly complicated in the plot, but the characters are very well defined and easy to identify with I enjoyed Hale s writing style and although the story went pretty much as I expected to, it was fun There are some fairly graphic scenes in the book, which were well written and I felt sensitively writte [...]

    19. I found this to be an easy read It wasn t hard to keep turning the pages and as the plot unfolded, and I longed for justice for Lainey.The story opens with a sultry bar scene that quickly turns into hot sex in a hotel room But, we don t know who the characters are yet Obviously, Lainey is running from something and Walker is running toward something When he discovers she is the wife of his new boss, the Chief of Police in New Hope, he feels betrayed and Lainey panics when she realizes this is th [...]

    20. Beth has written a steamy romance with much heart and a real compassion for her characters The affair between Lainey and Walker sets the tone for the rest of the story and I found myself wanting them to get together and for her to cast aside the emotional burden that is her husband Evan as soon as possible The realism of the story made it hard to read at times, but the detail with which she wrote the story made that life like tone easier to digest As the story continued I found the cop work comp [...]

    21. The Magnolia Secrets, book I starts with the main character hooking up with a charming police officer, Walker At first I thought I was reading a simple romance story, but as soon as I got to know about Lainey s complicated life, I could feel that the novel would surprise me and would be deeper than I had expected Lainey is a victim of home violence, living with a beastly man, who works as a chief of police and is actually Walker s boss As the story enfolds, the reader sets off on a darker, dang [...]

    22. Lainey is a well crafted heroine whose secret life rocks a small town and captures the heart of her hero Her story is compelling and emotional because sadly, spousal abuse is a real problem in the world It was riveting to see her grow and become stronger throughout the story, and finally begin to feel comfortable in who she was as a woman and a person with a purpose in life other than serving as a punching bag for her controlling husband The scenes were written in vivid detail and one could almo [...]
