Book Review: Sweet Tea and Secrets, by Nancy Naigle

Title: Sweet Tea and Secrets

Author: Nancy Naigle

Sweet Tea and Secrets, an Adams Grove Novel, Book 1 is a polished and sophisticated, yet laidback novel with a down home country feel. From the start, I felt like I was pulled right into the quaint town of Adams Grove. The relationship between Jill and Garrett was fun and sassy. I loved the physical tension and how it was sweet—exactly right up my alley. The re-development of their relationship was something that kept my interest throughout the novel.

Ms. Naigle’s writing style was detailed but not with an overkill of unnecessary information. The plot line was exciting and very believable, and I wanted to know more when the story ended. This story was so compelling. I would love to read more about Jill and Garrett and the characters of Adams Grove. I give Ms. Naigle 5 Stars for Outstanding Fiction.

About the Book

Returning back to Adams Grove after the death of her grandmother, Pearl Clemmons, Jill is met with mixed emotions—she’s mourning the loss of Pearl but also not exactly excited to see her ex-fiancé, Garrett Malloy. She stays at her grandmother’s home to get her estate situated and there are a series of break-ins. That’s when they begin to realize their lives are in danger. Will Jill and Garrett find a way to escape the present danger and rekindle their romance?
