What happens when you uncover years of secrets and find out everything you thought to be true was a lie?
Drew Stevens finds her world turned upside down when her parents are brutally murdered. Soon after, she learns she inherited a property in Bar Harbor, Maine from recently deceased grandparents that she believed had died when she was a baby.
Drew travels north to settle her grandparents’ estate, but finds more questions than answers as the truth starts unraveling. What she didn’t expect to find was Saint, whose reputation was as tumultuous as his past. But the very thing that brought them together was the same thing that kept them emotionally caged.
With Saint’s scars so deep and Drew’s so fresh, can the pair heal from their painful wounds or will they be pulled beneath the darkness of their pasts?
I was given the wonderful opportunity by Book Enthusiast Promotions to read and review Pulled Beneath written by Marni Mann. This was the first book I have read from this author and I devoured it in one sitting. I will definitely be adding more of her books to my collection.
The mystery surrounding the main character, Drew, drove the novel. After the death of her parents Drew’s world is slowly pulled apart like layers of an onion, each layer further deepens her confusion and pain. The plot was very well written and I loved the dialogue. My only complaint would be that Drew didn’t seem to pursue the clues hard enough, they seemed to just present themselves to her. I do, however understand that she was a woman in pain so perhaps playing Nancy Drew wasn’t at the top of her list.
Drew and the other main characters of the book did begin to evolve more towards the middle and end and I was so happy with the information that this is the first book in a new series because I definately want to know more about Drew’s story and the man she chose to be with and what happens in everyone’s lives after the revelations she learned at the end.
