Secrets in the Sky

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  No-one ever accused Sophie Campbell of being a coward. From caving trips to rooftop pranks, it appeared nothing could hold her back, especially once she landed a dream job promising travel all over the world. 

But Sophie’s jet-setting lifestyle is not what it seems and she’s been spending more time in the quiet English village of Saffron Sweeting than she cares to admit. When her beloved Great Aunt Wol dies suddenly, Sophie loses one of the few people who truly know her. As friends, family and an old flame gather for the funeral, questions soon follow. Worse, Sophie finds herself increasingly attracted to the man most likely to expose her secrets. Can she manage to guard her past, yet finally follow her long-held dream? 

Featuring both new and familiar characters, this stand-alone romantic comedy is set two years before Kindle best-seller Saving Saffron Sweeting. With side helpings of British tea, cake and wit, Secrets in the Sky explores how finding the courage to be yourself can be the toughest challenge of all.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: I really liked that Secrets in the Sky took me back to Saffron Sweeting.  I really enjoyed going on this adventure with Sophie.  I can't believe she kept secrets from so many.  The whooper of secrets, I didn't even see coming until the words jumped off the page.  It really tied the whole book together.

Favorite Character(s):  Aunt Wol since she was so full of love and wisdom. I can't not mention Tom as well, hot and rich!

Fast read/slow read:  Just right.  Left me wanting to read another chapter, but knew it would be waiting for me after work.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I would and did.  I read her first book Saving Saffron Sweeting (click here for review).  I was so happy when Pauline reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in reading her latest novel, Secrets in the Sky....of course I would!

British by birth, Pauline Wiles now lives in northern California. While she doesn’t miss the grey skies of Blighty, she does experience occasional yearnings for afternoon tea and historic homes. Her work has been published by House of Fifty, Open Exchange and Alfie Dog Fiction. Her debut novel, Saving Saffron Sweeting, was a quarter-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
