Home Truths by Louise Forster
“London-based chef Jennifer Dove loves her exciting, fast-paced life and she has every intention of returning to it ASAP. This trip to Tumble Creek — middle-of-nowhere Australia — is just a blip, a trip out of time, to visit her sister and niece and farewell her beloved Uncle.
But barely hours into her stay, she disturbs an intruder in her uncle’s house, is questioned by police, and finds a pair of fluffy pink stilettos in the bedroom. Things are not all they seem in Tumble Creek, and much as she tries not to, Jennifer is sucked in to the mystery surrounding her uncle. Who is his girlfriend Veronica, and why is she not here? What are the locals hiding? And why can she not get sexy local Calum McGregor out of her mind?
All is not what it seems in this sleepy, small town, and as Jennifer unravels its mysteries, she might just be tying herself to Tumble Creek forever.”
Tumble Creek Australia has changed a lot since Jennifer returned from London. Treated as an almost outsiders, aspects of her Uncle’s life is hidden from her by her own family. Secrets slowly come to the surface just in time for the funeral.
Home Truths is a fast paced book full of mystery and intrigue. Callum offers some steamy romance and make this book the perfect read. The author provided a well crafted novel with vibrant locations and loveable characters in Jennifer and Callum, and blended it with the right amount of mystery. I highly recommend this very entertaining book.
