Overview

Two book box set of Temple Secrets (400+ reviews) & Gullah Secrets

Temple Secrets

A town held together with secrets. A wealthy widow looking for an heir. One choice could shame high society into submission.


Eighty-year-old Southern aristocrat Iris Temple's health may be failing, but her wit is as sharp as ever. Before she joins her ancestral ghosts, she must pick an heir to take over her sprawling estate—and the book of secrets that's kept her family in power for generations. But between her scheming son, her estranged daughter who abandoned Savannah years ago, and her illegitimate half-sister, she's working with slim pickings.

While only her half-sister and cook have put up with her outlandish diet and constant bickering, she can't ignore the powerful hold her late father's 100-year-old mistress has over the two women. When someone leaks embarrassing snippets from the Temple family book, she half suspects the voodoo-practicing centenarian as the elites of Savannah teeter on the edge of revolt. With Iris fading fast, her ragtag bunch of potential heirs must reveal the leaker before the book's secrets tear the sleepy town apart.

If you like Southern humor, headstrong women, and twisty mysteries, then you'll love Temple Secrets, a compelling tale of an unconventional inheritance.

Gullah Secrets

A family legacy in danger. A stranger in their midst. Do they have the strength to survive the gathering storm of secrets?

For the Temple women, the winds of change are blowing. And if they're not careful, it could sweep them all away...

After rising from Temple servant to tea shop owner, Violet finally feels in charge of her destiny. While learning Gullah folk magic from her aging grandmother, she worries much of her cultural heritage will be lost to the grave. Is there enough time for Old Sally to pass down all her special wisdom?

Bride-to-be Queenie has never felt younger at heart. Engaged to the man of her dreams, the feisty sixty-year-old won't let anything ruin her big day—not even ancestral ghosts or a mysterious wedding crasher.

Rose's southern roots run deep. Even after three decades away, she can still feel the shadow of her deceased high-society mother watching her every move. Can she shake her ghost and find a place among her family?

With a storm of trouble brewing across the island, the Temple women will have to survive more than a force of nature to put their ghosts to rest...

Gullah Secrets is the sequel to the bestselling novel Temple Secrets. If you like Southern gothic literature, characters you won't want to close the cover on, and locations steeped in history, then you'll love this hilarious and warmhearted saga.
