Sweet Tea and Secrets: An Adams Grove Novel, Book 1

Not much happens in Adams Grove, Virginia, where the worst crime to hit the small town in a decade was hunters bagging too many deer. So when word gets out about a break-in over at Pearl Clemmons’s place, the townsfolk go on high alert, locking their doors and firing up the rumor mill. Pearl’s granddaughter Jill certainly has enough on her plate, what with tending to Pearl’s estate and coming face-to-face with sexier-than-sin Garrett Malloy. Also known as: The Man Who Broke Her Heart.

Publisher's Summary

Not much happens in Adams Grove, Virginia, where the worst crime to hit the small town in a decade was hunters bagging too many deer. So when word gets out about a break-in over at Pearl Clemmons’s place, the townsfolk go on high alert, locking their doors and firing up the rumor mill. Pearl’s granddaughter Jill certainly has enough on her plate, what with tending to Pearl’s estate and coming face-to-face with sexier-than-sin Garrett Malloy. Also known as: The Man Who Broke Her Heart. But now that she has to contend with no-count thieves, everyone agrees she can use all the help she can get.

Somebody thinks Pearl had something worth stealing, and it’s clear they’ll stop at nothing to get it - even if it means hurting Jill. Now, with Garrett’s help, Jill just might have a chance of unearthing Pearl’s secrets…as well as her own deep, conflicted desire for her ex. Garrett may have been the last man Jill wanted to see, but now, she may not want to let him go.

    "Narrator is awful"

    I couldn't get past the narrator's voice to finish the first chapter much less the book.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Sweet Country Listen with a Villain or Two"

    When Jill's Grandma Pearl dies, she feels alone in the world . . . returning to Adams Grove from her fancy job in Savannah, she remembers the simple life of growing up in a small town and all the fun she had growing up. As Jill buries her Grandma, she begins to wonder about her new life in Savannah doing fund raising, going to galas, driving an expensive car, and living in a huge estate . . . with Bradley. Was that really who she was? As the details of Pearl's will are revealed, Jill is faced with choices she hadn't expected . . . but Pearl knew Jill so well . . . could her grandma be right? As each day goes by, the peace and joy of country life seeps down deep into Jill's bones again . . . and the people of Adams Grove, who have always loved her, come to her aide in ways she never expected. I love books like Sweet Tea and Secrets . . . they may not be particularly deep or complex, but they are GOOD . . . in many ways . . . and so refreshing. They restore your faith in mankind. They give you a glimpse into small town life. They show us that GOOD can prevail over evil. I thoroughly enjoyed this listen.

    "Not as good as I thought it would be"
    What disappointed you about Sweet Tea and Secrets?

    The story line was interesting despite that the main character at times seemed unintelligent regarding events around her. It is most irritating to yell at an audiobook


    Has Sweet Tea and Secrets turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Shannon McManus’s performance did you like?

    She has a pleasant voice


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Other listeners liked it maybe it just isn't my cup of tea
