In The Cradle Lie, by Olivia Newport, is book two in the Tree of Life series. This is such a good series. While this is a good stand alone series, the book does reference characters from the previous story. This is a story of family history and how it affects those in future generations.
Jillina is a genealogist who lives with her her attorney father, Nolan. Together they work to help those in the community in need and especially the newcomers.
Tucker is in town on an extended skiing trip. He has recently lost his grandfather and has inherited the family company. He was also given a mystery envelope that reveals surprising dark secrets from his family’s history. With Jillian and her father’s help he is able to find family he was not aware he had.
This story is full of adventure, real life situations, suspense and a touch of romance. The story is split between modern day and 1936. Some of the things that stand out to me in this book is the caring the community has for each other. When a big snow storm affected businesses, other came to help. I also enjoyed reading the authors note at the end of the story and the brief history she used to set this story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
