Product description


***** Marie said, "[Cathy] is fighting old emotions as she reluctantly comes back to her home town, and her growth in this book is astounding. I also love the relationship she has with her daughter, Hayley. For anyone who has a daughter, you'll appreciate their banter!" Janga at Just Janga said: The Canadian setting makes it a standout, and Cathy and Ryan and their tangled relationships give readers an interesting story. I like novels rich in context, and Leacott generously provides that. In addition to the complex familial relationships are a host of minor characters who lend credibility to the central characters and their place in Clarence Bay. The secret baby plot is one often used in romance, but Leacott gives it a twist that will catch some readers by surprise. ***** Jessi at The Book Cove said, "I absolutely loved Above Scandal! For those of you that are wondering what small town life is like - just read this book (hah!). Seriously though. Having grown up in a small town myself, I can appreciate the skill that it takes to keep a secret...well...secret. And even if it's the tiniest secret in the world, the gossip troupes have a way of figuring it out and turning it into the biggest talk of the town! So you can only imagine what happens when something big really does hit a small town." **** KAME Book Reviews said, "Whoever chose the title of this book (that would be me JL), they chose well. This book had a great plot, and a few scandalous subplots; all trying to poke holes at Ryan's campaign platform of transparency. When the story was done there were so many little tidbits of story left over from secondary characters I can not wait to see where they all pick up in the next book." ***** Gina Grant said, "How can a complex story be such a fun and easy read? I whipped through this book because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I love a book with unexpected plot twists and turns.But the best thing about this book is the characters. When Cathy is pulled in several different directions and must make powerful and difficult choices, you, the reader, ache right along with her.It's a satisfying emotional journey. Joan infuses her work with a joy of life that will make you sigh and smile.I can't wait for her next Clarence Bay book." Kristin Anders, said, "Category-length romance with alpha heroes is so hot right now and everyone's writing it. Then here you come with your adult, family-oriented romance and prove that single title romance is alive and well. It's such a beautiful story. I love it because I'm a mom and I was once a girl who left her small hometown. This book will relate to every romance reader with a family. Especially those with older children. Smart."

Product Description


Three generations of Rossetti women are hoarding secrets.

Cathy Rossetti’s secret is Hayley, her outspoken ten-year-old daughter who’s about to meet her family for the first time. Sadly, it’s taken a terminal illness to bring Cathy back to her hometown.

The elder generation of Rossetti women guards a thirty-year old secret with the power to rock Cathy’s world. Will her mother take their secret to her grave, or will her aunt break her punishing vow of silence?

Hayley hates secrets, so she’s sleuthing around Clarence Bay looking for her daddy. Is it her new BFF’s father or mayoral candidate Ryan Chisholm or Ryan’s handsome campaign manager?

Ryan has a secret, too. He’s still in love with Cathy, his high-school sweetheart. For a man running his election campaign on a platform of honesty, this could cause problems. Will dumping his popular fiancée cost him the election? And if Cathy still loves him after eleven years absence, she’s not telling.

Come meet the neighbours. They'll keep your secrets.
