Blog Tour - Covered in Coal by Silla Webb

Title: Covered in Coal (Buried Secrets #1)
Series: Buried Secrets #1
Author: Silla Webb
Release Date: March 17, 2014

Carly Jo Simon believed that Colton Weston was her future, but he shattered her heart into tiny pieces. Just like any little girl would, she assumed her daddy would always be by her side. Unbelievably, he turned his back on her when she needed him most, leaving her with no one in her life to turn to for support.

Without options, Carly runs away from the only home she's ever known, leaving behind her heartache and the betrayal of the two men she loved most.

Seven years later, Carly reluctantly returns to Kentucky. Her daddy is dying of cancer and Colton is nothing like the boy she once loved and left. After her daddy passes, Carly must uproot her life in South Carolina and take control of Simon Coal Company, where she has no choice but face the pain of her past.

Can Carly keep her secrets buried deep beneath the black Kentucky coal and her heart safe from the fiery Colton Weston?
What a great debut by Silla Webb, Covered in Coal was a fabulous read. The prologue was absolutely gripping and sucked me right into this story.

Carly Jo left Kentucky after a breakup with Colton and a blowup with her father. She left to make a life for herself and escape from her painful past. Fast forward a few years and she's called back home. Can she make amends with her father and Colton?

Colton never forgot his first love Carly Jo, now she's back and he wants to pick right back up where they left off. Except Colton has a secret that may just be a deal-breaker for Carly Jo.

I liked the setting of this book, I don't think I've ever read a book that had taken place in a coal mining town. There was quite a bit of mystery in the plot and I'm really intrigued to see where this group of characters is going to end up. Of course what would a romance be with out sex? This book had some great steamy scenes and maybe even a love triangle brewing.This is not a standalone. There will be a book two as we're left with a bit of a cliffhanger.

I'm very much looking forward to reading book two, can't wait to see what's going to happen.

~ Review by Erin


Silla Webb is a Kentucky native, raised in the heart of the coal fields. A coal truck driver's daughter, and a railroader's wife, the coal fields own a special place in her heart.

She is a work at home, Super Momma to three rowdy boys, who keep her on her feet from daylight to sunset. As a pass time from her everyday life, Silla started a blog-Momma's Secret Book Obsession, for reviewing romance novels. From there, she realized that not only did she have a natural love for reading and reviewing, but she found that lost love of writing that she once had as a young girl.

 When she isn't conquering the world as a wife, momma and Super Woman, Silla loves to lay on the front porch swing and read while sipping sweet tea, just passin' the day away.
