Lying Beneath the Oaks by Kristin Wright

Release Date - January 15, 2019

Lying Beneath the Oaks was the change of pace I needed. It's a little suspenseful, though I can't say the mystery was that hard to solve. The romantic tension between Molly and Cooper is what makes this a solid romance.

Molly Todd and Cooper Middleton find themselves in a bit of a scandal. While in Vegas, the pair drinks too much and end up getting married. They'd never even met until they were a few drinks into the evening. They need some time to figure things out, but Cooper needs to get back to South Carolina. Molly opts to go with him and look into an annulment there.

In South Carolina, Molly finds herself falling for Cooper. He's equally smitten and wonders if she could be the woman to help him start anew. His last wife walked away from him without ever looking back, and he's risking his heart falling for another woman.

Molly has her own secret. As she learns more about the Middleton family, she realizes that not even Cooper knows about some of his family's past. With her own secrets and knowing some of his, she could break his heart in more ways than one.

This is mostly a romance, but the intrigue into the past for both Cooper and Molly adds a suspenseful element. Lying Beneath the Oaks is set in the Lowcountry and often had me craving a little of the atmosphere Molly was learning to embrace. The food descriptions were just part of it. I ended up reading it in one sitting and was teary-eyed by the end. I loved it.
