Mandy Magro is an Australian author that we love here at Beauty and Lace, and we have been featuring her books for years now; always on the look out for the next release.

The latest release is Secrets of Silvergum and it definitely looks like an intriguing read. I was thrilled to secure it as a book club title and am a little sad that I haven’t found the time to read it yet; though I am looking forward to the day I do.

In the meantime I will look forward to hearing what our members thought and live vicariously through their opinions on the novel.

Synopsis from the Publisher’s Website:

Can dark family secrets ever truly be buried?

When a horrible twist of fate leaves teenage friends Emma Kensington and Zane Wolfe reeling in the wake of a fatal accident, the two are driven apart for decades.

As a professional bull rider in America for the past sixteen years, Zane has stayed a sensible distance from the one woman he’s always loved but could never have – Emma, his childhood friend, and his brother’s wife. But a phone call revealing his stepfather’s sudden death means keeping half a world between them is no longer an option. Returning to Silvergum, how will he keep his long-held feelings under control?

For Emma, the death of her father-in-law, Peter, is shadowed by the secrets he’d been blackmailing her with. She’s finally free to tell the truth to the man she’s covertly loved from afar all this time. But Peter’s hand stretches beyond the grave, and all too soon Emma discovers she’s not the only one who has been keeping secrets. And to make peace with her past, she could very likely lose everything she loves most…

Mandy Magro can be followed on Facebook and her Website.

12 thoughts on “BOOK CLUB: Secrets of Silvergum

  1. Secrets of Silvergum by Mandy Magro is a story of secrets, blackmail, romance and rural Australia all in the one novel.

    The story starts off with best mates Emma and Zane, 17 year olds who are shocked and drawn apart for 17 years because of a fatal accident. Cause of the accident Zane moves to America as a professional bull rider who never wants to return to Australia. The girl that he wants to marry Emma married his brother whom he does not get along with, together with the fact that he does not get along with evil stepfather Peter either. Peter has a hold on Emma blackmailing her with several secrets while Emma suffers a marriage that is not made in heaven with Michael who is a workaholic and wants to follow in his father’s footsteps.

    When Peter suddenly dies, Zane returns to Australia for the funeral. Emma hopes that secrets she has will be able to be told and the truth be known, so the dreams she has of having a future with Zane are possible. But unfortunately, this is not the case as Peter still has ways and means of blackmailing Emma so she cannot let the truth be told and make her free from his hold. Will Emma be strong enough to the let the truth be known!

    I would highly recommend “Secrets of Silvergum”.

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Secrets of Silvergum. I have read numerous Mandy Magro books and like them for their themes of romance, family dramas, Australiana and small town communities

    Secrets of Silvergum tells the story of long-time friends Emma and Zane, friends since they were young but torn apart by tragedy and scandal. Years later they meet again, Emma with a teenage daughter, Zane a hot-shot rodeo rider from America. Can they ever overcome their past and rebuild their friendship?

    Thank you to Harlequin Books and Beauty & Lace Book Club for the opportunity to read this lovely story.
