Pat's Review: Buried Truth

Buried Truth by Jannine Gallant
Publisher: Lyrical Press (January 30, 2018)
Series: Siren Cove, 1
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Visit Siren Cove, Oregon, for gorgeous beaches, miles of hiking, delightful small-town shops--and a dark side none of its residents could have possibly imagined . . .

Leah Grayson has lived in Siren Cove all her life. It's where she buried a time capsule with her fifth-grade class. Where she spent an unforgettable night on the beach with her first love. Where she married then divorced her rotten ex.

But there's something ugly going on in her pretty little town. When Leah organizes a reunion for her fifth-grade classmates to open their time capsule, they discover a roll of film no one remembers saving. Afterward, strange incidents begin happening. Warnings. Accidents. Random acts of vandalism.

Luckily, her first love is back in town, too. Ryan Alexander has made it big with a wildly popular social media startup, but he's still the same sweet, cynical man she fell for all those years ago. And the chemistry they felt as teenagers is as strong as ever.

A nostalgic fling turns deadly when someone is convinced Leah has the key to secrets long buried. With no way to know whom they can trust, Leah and Ryan will have to seek out the answers themselves . . .

Pat's Review:

A seemingly harmless time capsule, buried by fifth graders twenty years ago, starts a series of events that involves reuniting old friends, suspicion, fear and worse. But it does offer a second chance to Leah and Ryan to make their life together work this time.

Leah Grayson and her two best friends still happily live in Siren Cove. Leah teaches fifth grade at their old elementary school, while Nina and Paige own small businesses. They’re all promoting the reunion and time capsule opening. Ryan, her high school love and now millionaire owner of a social media company, returns home after his mom is injured in an accident, and agrees to help with the reunion. All plans seem to be going smoothly until a series of suspicious events occurs. The area where the capsule was first buried is dug up in the middle of the night, Leah starts getting threatening phone calls, Ryan’s Jeep is broken into, and despite Leah’s bag inside, nothing is taken. Plus, the time capsule reveals an interesting object no one remembers putting in there.

Ryan Alexander never got over Leah breaking up with him. She ended up married to the loser Brock. The marriage ended quickly and Leah wishes she had listened to Ryan’s advice. But, with him back in town, maybe they can have a second chance.

The danger escalates and soon you don’t know who is innocent and who is guilty. The sparks between Leah and Ryan really smolder, and their suspicions start to add up. I was stumped till the end. Great first book in the series, can’t wait for more in Siren Cove.
