She’s given herself two weeks to talk her husband into coming back to England. She becomes close to those who befriend her, including the man who gives her a ride from the airport after her husband is a no-show. But the days go past and she’s no closer to getting her husband back. In fact, things become more and more complicated.
The author, Ann Summerville, was born in England and now lives in Fort. Worth, so she definitely knows both areas. I don’t know how long she’s lived in Texas, but I felt she got the characters right. Some were strange, some were friendly, some were quirky (those I think she patterned after my relatives). It was interesting to see Texas through the eyes of Heather.
I learned to really like Heather as she begins to like Texas and the new friends she’s made. If she stays in Texas (and you’ll have to read the book to find out if she does), I could see her adapting and become a Texan, in which case she would not wait for her husband to come to her to talk. Like any good Texas woman, she’d take a cast iron skillet to the side of his head, knock him out, tie him up, give him a piece of her mind, and keep him gagged so he couldn’t talk back while she ate some scones. I’m just saying…
I’m just saying I liked Storms & Secrets enough to give it a rating of Hel-of-a-Story, since this was the first book I've read where I cheered for the Brit in a stand-off with a Texan.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~FTC Disclaimer: This book was sent to me by the author, but that did not influence my review, nor did she ask for a review. I was influenced by the twists and turns and interesting characters. And I actually would like to see more tales starring Heather. If you like a book where the characters push the story forward, I would recommend Storms & Secrets. Speaking of characters, I do believe the character Caroline was based on my Granny Murriel. That’s okay. She’s been gone quite a few years, otherwise, she’d be asking for royalties. Wait a minute, I’m a descendant…I’m just saying.
