Blog Tour for Covered in Coal by Silla Webbs

Title: Covered in Coal (Buried Secrets #1)
Release Day: March 17, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Suspense
Amazon Rating: 4.7 stars

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?

Review by Gia:
I loved this story.  The beginning was very emotional.  I was hooked right from the start and didn't want to put it down.   Silla wrote it so that the characters emotions seemed very real and you couldn't help feel for them.   
There is an author note in the beginning, that says,  "The dialect used throughout this book, is true Eastern Kentucky dialect."  I loved that it's true dialect and the author didn't change it.  The true dialect helps make the characters seem more real.  
There's a lot going on in this book.  Carly Jo ran from life and her ex Colton and didn't return for seven years.   When she returns her father passes away and leaves her his business.  Colton is still there and wants to get back with Carly Jo.  Carly Jo finds out some things about her father and some things about Colton.  She also becomes friends with Luke who she knew from school.   Life isn't easy for Carly Jo and in this story we get to read along while she tries to figure things out.
Yes,  there is a mind blowing cliffhanger.  I can't wait to read more when the second book comes out.

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.
