Sweet Tea and Secrets by Nancy Naigle Review & Giveaway

Jill Clemmons left the small town of Adams Grove a year ago for the big city lights of Savannah. She moved in with her boss Bradley and is very successful at her new job of fundraising. When she finds out her beloved grandmother has passed away, Jill hightails it back home.


Pearl is the only family Jill has left and she is devastated at the loss. Garrett Malloy, Jill's ex-fiance, keeps popping in to help her, although she doesn't need his help. She's envious that Garrett is living the dream that she and he and talked about and planned together for years.

On top of the devastation of losing her grandmother, Jill's boss and live-in boyfriend, Bradley, keeps issuing demands that Jill come home. He wants her by his side for business and doesn't understand her wanting to stay in the small town. Also, there have been several break-ins in the area, where crime is very low and no one locks their doors. But when Jill and her big dog Clyde are locked into the attic, the word spreads like fire through the town and everyone is soon locking their doors.

When Pearl's will is read, Garrett and Jill are shocked. In order to inherit the land and the house, they must live together for thirty days. Pearls is adamant that they belong together even if they are too pig-headed to realize it. But when their lives become endangered, will Jill and Garrett realize their love for one another is worth fighting for?

Sweet Tea and Secrets is a heart-warming romance set in the south with a twist of suspense. Attention to the details really sets the scenes and the quaint town, reminding me of my own small town upbringing, where everyone knows everyone and all of the gossip. Character development is exceptional and the story is adequately paced, keeping this reader entranced in their lives and their struggles. Nancy Naigle has written a beautiful and entertaining novel sure to appeal to romantic suspense fans. I found it delightful and highly enjoyed it!

  14. That is very unusal for a grandmother to demand that the main character and her ex-fiance live together. I am very curious as to how this all works out.

  23. Sounds like a fun read, which I could use now since a 100 year old tree fell on my house and car during Hurricane Irene and did a lot of damage. A good read would help me relax.
    Thanks!
