A brand new rural romance trilogy from a brand new voice: Shirley Wine introduces you to the secrets and scandals of Darkhaven

For single mum, Victoria Scanlan, a visit to the luxurious country house of Darkhaven, is a rare chance to combine work with pleasure. Securing the commission for The Wedding Of The Year will guarantee the ongoing success of her floral boutique and secure her the stability she needs for both herself and her son.

But Darkhaven comes with a shocking guest – the groom is Seth Donahue. Her young son's father. The man who has no idea he has a child. The man she can’t forget.

After a lifetime of betrayal by every woman in his life, Keir Donovan has settled on a calm future with the glamorous heiress Davina Strathmore. She is everything Keir needs in a life partner: confident, poised, elegant, attractive, and aware that this marriage isn’t about love. But when Victoria walks back in his life, his future suddenly doesn’t seem quite so well-defined.

Keir’s passion for Victoria still burns as strongly as ever, but it’s clear she’s keeping secrets: and after a lifetime of deception, Keir has no tolerance for lies.

My Review:
Tell Me No Lies by Shirley Wine

Tell Me No Lies is an emotional rollercoaster for a young, single mother when she is unexpected reunited with her baby’s father…a father who happens to be an heir to a fortune.

Victoria Scanlan life took an unexpected turn when she became pregnant at 18 and had no way to find the father. She worked hard and made a life for herself as a florist.

When a friend invites her to his family home, she never expected to run into Seth AKA Keir…her baby’s father.

Almost every cast member of Tell Me No Lies had some very serious character flaws. Some were out right vicious while others were generally unlikeable. Keir and Victoria too had their issues that didn’t completely endear me to them. I can honestly say, Connor was the bright start to this show.

That being said, Shirley Wine definitely has the story telling gift. Even though I highly disliked pretty much everyone, I found myself emotionally invested and drawn into the turmoil caused by hatred, greed lies and lust. Topping it all there were the lies, upon lies…

Tell Me No Lies is a life lesson that slowly unravels in this contemporary romance.

I received this ARC copy of Tell Me No Lies from Escape Publishing in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication Feb. 5, 2016.
