Review: Covered in Coal by Silla Webb

Covered in Coal (Buried Secrets Series, Book 1)
By: Silla Webb
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Suspense
Release Date: March 18, 2014
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?
At 17 years old Carly Jo discovers she is pregnant to her high school love Colton Weston, just days after he broke up with her.  She turns to her father for help, he pretty much disowns her and tells her she is on her own.  She leaves town and tries to make a life for herself with her impending baby.
Seven years later she returns home to reunite with her father as he is in his last days, dying of cancer.  After his death she finds herself the CEO of his Coal Mining company and one of her senior employees is Colton Weston, her first love.  All the familiar feelings for him come flooding back between them but they have both changed so much and their lives are paved with hurt, sorrow and what could have been regrets.
Colton wants her back and will not give up on them.  There are a lot or confessions to be made and both of them make silly decisions.  This leads you nicely into a cliffhanger ending BUT it’s not an awful one, more like a, ‘I hope it’s not true’ one.
I give this 4 stars J
