Back cover blurb: Secrets, Sex and Scandals …

Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy… Get ready. The storm is coming.

Nestled among rolling hills and painted with vibrant wildflowers, the bucolic town of Storm, Texas, seems like nothing short of perfection.

But there are secrets beneath the facade. Dark secrets. Powerful secrets. The kind that can destroy lives and tear families apart. The kind that can cut through a town like a tempest, leaving jealousy and destruction in its wake, along with shattered hopes and broken dreams. All it takes is one little thing to shatter that polish.

Ginny Moreno didn’t mean to do it, but when she came home to Storm, she brought the tempest with her. And now everyone will be caught in its fury…

My review: Back in the ’80s I loved all those trashy soaps – Falcon Crest, Santa Barbara, Bold and the Beautiful, DOOL – and reading this new series is just like reliving those stories. Set in a small, Texas town, we have a sudden death, multiple affairs, bitchy teens, unrequited love, a baby of unknown parentage and spousal abuse, all crammed into about 100 perfect pages. This is the start of a serial, each part written by a different author, so I am looking forward to the next installment to see in which direction a new author will take it. I haven’t read any Julie Kenner before but I will certainly check out her other work now, too.

My rating: 5/5
