Book Review: Sun Tunnels and Secrets - Carole Thayne Warburton

I'd like to interrupt this celebration of my new book's release to help a good friend of mine celebrate hers.  Carole Thayne Warburton has recently published her third novel, Sun Tunnels and Secrets, and it was my pleasure to read it for review. You can check out the backliner and all the release information below, but I'll take a second here to share my thoughts - this book is delightful.  The characterizations are great, the storyline holds your interest from beginning to end, it's well written, and I think it's Carole's best to date.  It's very well worth your time. And if you participate in her giveaway, you just might be the winner of a gorgeous hand-thrown piece of pottery (see the picture below). Not only is Carole a talented author, but she's an amazing potter. You just can't go wrong with this lady.

****
On a trip to the Sun Tunnels in the Utah desert, Norma and her sisters find a body on the side of the road. But this awful discovery turns out to be the least of their problems. Norma's husband just passed on, and she learns he kept a secret from her for sixty years. LaRue is keeping a secret from Norma. The sisters' young friend Tony is keeping a secret about his famous father, and Tony's mother is keeping a secret of her own. Tony is secretly in love with his friend Kelli, who recently escaped from a polygamist cult. And who is the mysterious young car thief with whom Norma feels a special connection? Everything converges in Grouse Creek at the Fourth of July celebration. Will secrets prove everyone's undoing?

I have to admit that I am intrigued. This book sounds really fun. A mystery with humor? How much better can it get? Norma sounds like she would be Ida Mae's friend. Those two should get together.

Sheepish here--I've never read one of Carole's books, and I NEED to, because I hear she's a fantastic writer.
