SECRETS IN A SMALL TOWN
SECRETS IN A SMALL TOWN (4.5) by Kimberly Van Meter: After a story in the local paper paints him as an irresponsible logging company owner, Owen Garrett wants nothing to do with reporter Piper Sunday. But when he learns that her real motive is to research an incident that occurred 25 years earlier at a racist group’s compound when Owen’s father, the head of the group, and several others were killed, Owen cooperates in an attempt to clear his father’s name. Van Meter’s characters are both well drawn and sympathetic. Readers will love his strength and her determination. The death of one of Piper’s sources adds a nice bit of tension to the plot.
