- Book 1 of The McKay Series
A widower with four adopted daughters, Emmit McKay likes to keep a handle on things. But nothing can prepare the former FBI sharpshooter for the battles coming to his small hometown. Especially the one which arrives in such a tempting package.
Savannah Walker moves to Blue Creek to take over as principal of the school Emmit's daughters attend. With a masters' degree in education and a no-nonsense attitude, she is caught off guard by the behavior of the McKay girls and never expects to fall in love with them—or in lust with their father. But her intimacy with the family stirs up rumors and unearths secrets.
Savannah and Emmit cannot deny the chemistry which draws them together, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the stakes become. When a murderer is hidden amongst you, you can't let the dead lie.

LET THE DEAD LIE is my second W.L. Brooks novel and I couldn't be more pleased. Ms. Brooks has an uncanny knack for creating three-dimensional characters that leap off the page and she absolutely did that with the four sisters who are as alike as they are different.
Likes: The downright dogged devotion and loyalty the sisters have for each other juxtaposed against the reality that instead of being biologically related, they are in fact, adopted. Something that seems to cause consternation for some of the townsfolks. The overall story building AND telling is richer and tastier than the best Southern comfort foods. Yes, even your gran's mac n' cheese.
Dislikes: What did the letter say?!?
While this story does have a romance element and I can see categorizing it as such, the secondary characters figure so prominently in the story and the overall suspense is so good that I don't recommend going into this story expecting something light-hearted. Because, while yes, you will laugh out loud at times, you might also find yourself tugging at your hair, as you find yourself unable to put your eReader down until you get to the end. Because, it's that good.
