Covered In Coal by Silla Webb
Carly Jo Simon believed that Colton Weston was her future, but he shattered her heart into tiny pieces. Just like any little girl would, she assumed her daddy would always be by her side. Unbelievably, he turned his back on her when she needed him most, leaving her with no one in her life to turn to for support.
Without options, Carly runs away from the only home she’s ever known, leaving behind her heartache and the betrayal of the two men she loved most.
Seven years later, Carly reluctantly returns to Kentucky. Her daddy is dying of cancer and Colton is nothing like the boy she once loved and left. After her daddy passes, Carly must uproot her life in South Carolina and take control of Simon Coal Company, where she has no choice but face the pain of her past.
Can Carly keep her secrets buried deep beneath the black Kentucky coal and her heart safe from the fiery Colton Weston?
I saw Silla Web share on Facebook that Covered In Coal and Lies Beneath The Surface were both 99 cents on Kindle so I grabbed them both, pretty much based on the covers alone, excited to read a new author to me.
We start with Carly 7 years in the past dealing with something pretty intense, she turned to her father for support and received none. Colton had just left her and she felt she had no one so she took off.
Seven years later she has to come back because her father is dying. That is wear the story picks up and continues.
There is a lot going on in this book from her trying to deal with what happened between her and Colton in the past, her father’s death and the secrets that come out, and the happenings in the coal company that she inherited from her father. For me the pages just kept turning and turning, I needed to know who was doing this, who was responsible for that, and what was she going to do about Colton.
It ends in a cliff hanger but I was ok with that because I had the next ready to go in my Kindle cloud. It was a great story with characters that I loved who had stories that I wanted to continue following.
Excellent debut from Silla Webb! I will definitely be following her work!
