Today I’m reviewing newly released novel of romance author Wendy Ely who I met through one of the various online romance writing and reading communities I’m a member of. She contacted me about being on my review blog and I was happy to have her because I reviewed an ARC of her debut novel, Jesse’s Brother
. I interviewed Wendy
on this review blog as well as had her guest blog
about her debut novel, Jesse’s Brothers and I even talked live with Wendy Ely on my live podcast show TAMFA—Phoebe Jordan
about what she felt now that her debut novel, Jesse’s Brother
, was finally released as of Monday, September 21. Now lets get to my review of Wendy’s newly released novel, Confessions
, which I was lucky enough to get copy of from Wendy to review. Confessions
is the first book of Wendy’s Desert Secret
series and I’m happy that it is because I would definitely love to see these main characters in the future novels of this series. This novel starts when the heroine, Chelsea Montgomery, is at a diner where she first vanished eleven years ago, and we find out that her hometown thought she’d been abducted.
In truth, she’d given up the daughter she’d secretly had with her one true love Jordan Case. Though it’s been eleven years since Jordan has seen or heard from Chelsea now he confronts her to help find the child, Elizabeth, that they both created long ago. With a little girl’s fate hanging in the balance, will the uneasy partnership—stained by the past—transform into something else? Well I certainly hope so because I know that Jordan and Chelsea were meant to be together with their wonderful daughter. I had fun reading this novel because it kept me on my toes wondering when Chelsea and Jordan would finally get to see their daughter and be together after so many years apart. There was a bit of mystery while reading this novel that I loved during which Jordan and Chelsea had to find their daughter but couldn’t since the people that illegally adopted Elizabeth after so many years. Wendy Ely delivers yet another wonderful novel that hooked me from the start and made me crave for more even though the novel finished. I very much look forward to reading any of Wendy’s future novels because like I said she has me hooked. I am also anxious to find out more about her Desert Secret series especially since I think there is more to be find out about Chelsea’s sisters who have a mysterious background that I would like to find out more about. I give this book 4 Open Books:
