Blog Tour: Lies Beneath the Surface by Silla Webb

Title: Lies Beneath the Surface (Buried Secrets #2)
Happy For Now (No Cliffhanger)
Release Date: September 3, 2014
Genre: Romance/Mystery/Suspense

Carly Jo Simon carries the weight of the world on her shoulders.

When she unearthed her daddy’s secrets, she had no idea the repercussions she would be faced to live with. Now, his secrets are her own to carry, as she fights to protect her sister Savannah from their daddy’s daunting past and their bastard brother Drew.

Savannah wears a mask of perfection, shielding everyone from the reality of her personal imprisonment. When Savannah’s secrets are exposed, Carly stands by her, hand in hand, offering Savannah the comfort and strength she needs to move on.

Despite carrying the weight of other’s secrets on her back, Carly’s own secrets burden her deeply. Although she battled to keep her heart safely guarded from Colton Weston, he owns every inch of her. But when Carly turned her back on Colton and opened her arms to her best friend Luke, she made a mistake that could shatter all three of their lives.

They all have something to hide. But it’s the secrets that lie beneath the surface that could destroy them all.
I recommend you read Covered in Coal before you read this otherwise you will find yourself on the back foot, trying to figure things out.  You really need the back story before digging into this book.
Silla kindly left us all sitting out on a ledge at the end of Covered in Coal, eagerly awaiting more of Carly Jo & Colton's story.  It felt like just when everything was going right, it all turned pear shaped and I was gutted because I just want everyone to be happy and in love.  That would be too predictable though and I love what Silla does with her stories, keeping you on your toes :)
It's time for Carly Jo to come clean with Colton & Luke and the consequences are going to hurt whichever way this goes. Luke Ashton is the sweetest guy and I love how intuitive he is.  He will do anything for the people he cares about and is such a loyal friend to Carly Jo.  Colton reacts to things much differently and that is to be expected of the man who is madly in love her.  He is a bit of a hot head but it's because he is so passionate and protective when it comes to Carly Jo. 
Carly Jo also has a lot going on in the background at work and is carrying so much responsibility that it is wearing her down, her awful brother Drew is doing everything he can to sabotage her and I could not stand the man, he is just urgh! She discovers that Savannah's marriage to Josh is not what she thought it was.  On the outside she has the perfect marriage, happy children and house with the white picket fence.  However, it is a mask of a marriage that also has lies beneath the surface.  If only she would open up to Carly Jo and share the burden  with her.
We can't forget the cute little Heidi Jo. She had so many funny punch lines in this story, she is a sassy wee thing and I loved her interactions with Carly Jo.  She is a sweet girl who just wants a momma of her own to love her.   I love how forthright and honest  she was, as all children are.
One thing you can be sure of though is Colton & Carly Jo's deep love for each other, despite everything that has happened in the past and is going on in their lives now, this will never waver.  Will that be enough for them to hold on to each other or will the secrets & lies bury what they had once and for all?
I give this four stars
