Lying Beneath the Oaks by Kristin Wright – #BOOKREVIEW #NEWRELEASE

A beautifully scripted Southern Gothic novel with all the vivid scenic descriptions you expect from a book like this.

Cooper and Molly wake up in Vegas, married and with no clue of what happened. But Cooper is sweet and handsome so when he invites Molly, his new bride home to South Carolina to meet the family, she accepts.

Romance paired perfectly with a bit of horror, this thriller gave me what I came for. Usually, a book like this fails to deliver in some way when trying to mix genres. It’s rarely done with finesse like this one!

I can’t write much more than this without giving it away, trust me… it’s a must read!

Molly Todd wakes up in a Vegas parking lot with a headache, a virtual stranger, and a wedding ring. Jobless and broke, she’s left with no other option but to go home with new husband Cooper Middleton to the Lowcountry of South Carolina to straighten out the mess they’ve made. It’s in Molly’s best interest to get an annulment sooner rather than later–before her hosts find out that she’s not the kind of guest anyone wants at their Thanksgiving dinner.

The more Molly gets to know Cooper and his family, the more she wonders if she and Cooper might have a real chance together. She longs to tell him her secret even though she knows the truth might get her kicked straight out into the nearby swamp. While she wavers, Molly’s unusual life experiences allow her to spot the skeletons in the Middleton family closet: ones Cooper’s never suspected, ones that are hidden in plain sight. What Molly discovers will shake Cooper’s foundations–and could threaten both their lives.
