A widower with four adopted daughters, Emmit McKay likes to keep a handle on things. But nothing can prepare the former FBI sharpshooter for the battles coming to his small hometown. Especially the one which arrives in such a tempting package.
Savannah Walker moves to Blue Creek to take over as principal of the school Emmit’s daughters attend. With a masters’ degree in education and a no-nonsense attitude, she is caught off guard by the behavior of the McKay girls and never expects to fall in love with them—or in lust with their father. But her intimacy with the family stirs up rumors and unearths secrets.
Savannah and Emmit cannot deny the chemistry which draws them together, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the stakes become. When a murderer is hidden amongst you, you can’t let the dead lie.
I was included in the book tour for this book through my association with BookUnleashed. I had never heard of the author, W.L. Brooks, but the title of the book and the basic plot of the story had me intrigued. I was not disappointed at all.
I will tell you this: if you are going to read this book, you had better be prepared to fall in love with these four little McKay girls who will make you laugh and smile. These girls will even bring tears to your eyes. They definitely steal the show in this book and each of them are just as much of a main character as Emmit and Savannah are.
Casey, Alex, Fletcher and Charlie are the real base of this story. On this, is build also the love story of Emmit, or Pops (girl’s father) and the young school principal Savannah and all of that beyond the shadow of Emmit’s dead wife Grace and cognition that someone had tried to expel him from FBI and even kill him.
The characters in Let the Dead Lie were interesting, the plot fast-paced, and the action was well written. The author provided readers with a complex and intriguing “small town story” that provides mystery and suspense mixed with deceit and romance and includes family and friends, all at the same time. The story kept me reading this book late into the night and I especially loved how the author saved some twists for the end.
