My Review of "Sun Tunnels and Secrets" By Carole Thayne Warburton
On a trip to the Sun Tunnels in the Utah desert, Norma and her sisters find a body on the side of the road. But this awful discovery turns out to be the least of their problems. Norma's husband just passed on, and she learns he kept a secret from her for sixty years. LaRue is keeping a secret from Norma. The sisters' young friend Tony is keeping a secret about his famous father, and Tony's mother is keeping a secret of her own. Tony is secretly in love with his friend Kelli, who recently escaped from a polygamist cult. And who is the mysterious young car thief with whom Norma feels a special connection? Everything converges in Grouse Creek at the Fourth of July celebration. Will secrets prove everyones undoing?
This book has a little bit of everything, mystery, romance, suspense and humor.
I really loved the three older sisters Norma, Mabel and LaRue and their ever revolving relationships. Norma has to be my favorite sister; but she was the closest to a main character in the book.
I also really loved the character of Tony. He was definitely the most likable male character in the book. Even though there were several stories going on in the book, most of the small stories were connected with each other. Even with the many stories, they were all very
easy to follow.
I think most adults and teens would like this book. There are enough male characters in this book to keep the interest of men and women. If you know someone who likes a book like this, that is full of all genres, it would make a perfect gift.
I want to thank Walnut Springs Press for this review copy. In no way did this influence my review in any way.
