A young woman and a brooding widower are connected by a secret past in this suspenseful contemporary romance by the author of The Girl on the Beach.
Sad circumstances bring Jenny Simpson back to Borteen Bay, the English coastal village where she grew up. Her father disappeared when she was just a child, and now that her mother has passed, Jenny is on her own. In search of a new beginning, she takes a job cleaning houses—and her first assignment brings her to the home of Carver Rodgers, a handsome yet melancholy widower.
Since his wife’s untimely death, Carver has all but given up on life—and it shows in the state of his house. As Jenny and Carver grow closer, she begins to unravel the mystery of his unrelenting grief, while he begins to see new possibilities for the future. But they soon realize they share more in common than the spark between them. They are connected by the secrets buried in Borteen—secrets that link back to a fateful day at a police station many years before.
The Truth Lies Buried is the second Borteen Secrets novel from Morton S. Gray, following The Girl on the Beach, which won Choc Lit’s Search for a Star contest.
