Nicole Hurley-Moore is not a new author to me, and much to our delight one of our members spotted a Beauty and Lace quote on the back of this book. I can tell you that put smiles on all our faces.
Lawson’s Bend sounds like an intriguing tale that I look forward to picking up, but for now I will just have to check out the opinions of our members while I find the time to pick it up.
Synopsis from the Publisher’s Website:
For a long time Lawson’s Bend had held little for Henny. Almost ten years ago she’d got out and vowed never to come back. But sometimes things change . . .
In the hot summer of 2008, Henny Bolton loses her best friend on a night they should have been celebrating their futures. It’s a loss about which she remains grief-stricken.
Right after the accident, Henny flees the small country town and true to her word, she’s not been back.
Stephen Drake never left Lawson’s Bend. He once had ambitions for a different life but staying close to family became more important after that tragic night.
But when Henny’s mother dies suddenly in a fall near the old quarry, and Henny is forced to return to Lawson’s Bend, it’s apparent that questions need to be asked. Was it really an accident?
Her plan was to get out of town again as quickly as possible. But then there is Stephen . . .
Lawson’s Bend is available now through Allen & Unwin and where all good books are sold.
