While doing research for ‘southern voices’ as I was writing Soul of Stone; April 10, I discovered that the Usa Today best selling author Lauren K. Denton was from Alabama.
Her first book The Hideaway is a story of two women, grandmother and granddaughter, who find out the truth about each other and their pasts when Mags’ dies and her distant grandchild takes over her eccentric bed and
breakfast and the montage of guests who’ve kept the old woman’s secrets for nearly 50 years.
The author’s roots in Sweet Bay, Alabama brought this section of Mobile Bay alive through her characters and time periods. Her use of southern traditions like canary cake and sweet tea gave it a southern flare, but her love stories of sacrifice, loss and love of self and the courage to follow your heart were what drew me into the story. When all is lost with the man of her dreams, the parallels she draws with a man she never knew gave emotional insights into this story that were well worth the price of the book.
Lauren K. Denton is a wonderful story teller, an emotional writer and a perfect example of clean romance without being spiritual, inspirational or sweet. You can find Lauren’s books on her website laurenkdenton.com on amazon.com, i-tunes, bnn.com as well as where other books are sold. Her newest novel, Hurricane Season comes out April 3rd promises to be another winner!
