Publisher's Summary

Inviting your ex-spouse for the holidays might not be a good idea. Especially when folks don’t know you were married before. 

Carolina quit her job, and for the first time ever, she’s doing the holidays as a stay-at-home mom. And doesn’t all that extra time mean everything will be perfect? Then, the RV showed up. The RV with her parents, their dogs, and their obsession with Gone with the Wind. Then, the college kids showed up. 

Their whirlwind left an empty refrigerator, loads of laundry, and a girl. A girl no one seems to know much about. Then, the other grandparents showed up. Hillbilly Hank on his book tour of Southern retirement homes brings his entourage, along with a special kind of marital discord. 

While the town of Chancey watches the happenings up on the hill at the B&B, they are also trying to figure out the town’s bank account. Laney is the town’s treasurer, but she’s not answering questions. Missus has ordered 500 fake cardinals for her Christmas Ball. Peter is settling back into his home town and watching the B&B for his own personal reasons. All the secrets aren’t in boxes tied with ribbons and bows. 

Family ties come undone with family lies.

Book 2 is even better!

So, book 2 is even better and we are getting to know the characters a little more. Carolina's internal dialogue is fantastic, especially when it vacillates between what she WANTS to do and what she DOES do. Carolina is the epitome of a passive/aggressive person. (I'm more of a 'Susan' type. lol). Suzanne Barbetta, with her southern accent, is a PERFECT narrator for Carolina's story in Chancey. She doesn't 'read' the story, she is telling the story as if she is living the story. I'm loving this series and cannot wait to dig into book 3!

doormat and people pleaser

This series is like a train wreck that I can't look away from and need more gore and guts!!! Caro continues to be a people pleaser and doormat for all in her radius. She's moved up from doormat of the year to doormat of the universe. Often, it is to her detriment. The holiday season brings out the worst in everyone and secrets come to light. Changes and growth together and apart. I need more of thid train wreck. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review.The narrator did a good job.

Great characters and story

I love this series. Received the first and second book in exchange for a review. I am equally as pleased with the second book as I was with the first maybe a bit more. The characters are continuing to develop as is the storyline. I’m a sucker for a series and this one is great. A nice down home family with a little crazy added in for a bit of flare!!

Family Lies

Lovely story about Carolina and her family moving to a small town, where all the family and college kids find a sanctuary in the home. Family secrets have a way of coming out
