Author: Beth Andrews Published By: Harlequin Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 4 Book Blog For: GMTA Review: "Unraveling the Past" by Beth Andrews was a wonderful romance novel. This novel is the first in a series of three...featuring 'The Sullivan's.' This novel was of Layne Sullivan's dysfunctional that had mysterious secrets...that was a family story. Layne was the oldest of three sisters...who had cared for her younger sisters since their mother had left(eighteen years ago)... she was loyal and very independent. Layne had believed she would be the next 'Chief of Police' but that had been taken from her when the job is was given to the out of towner...Chief Ross Taylor who had moved into town with his niece. Now, this is where this read really starts to get interesting...and the part that I say you must pick up this wonderful read to see where this author will take you. It will be a wonderful read. Be ready for lots of excitement with twist and turns..teenage sex...drinking...dead bones are found....Layne and her sister Tori argument at the station, Ross seeing a charm on the sister's key chain...did Layne have one of these too? Why is Layne not telling the Chief Ross the vial information that she knew...what is Layne not telling? What will come about from the DNA test that Layne had taken...Well, to get all these answers ... answered.... plus many others that you will only get from this read. I found all the characters very interesting group of people in that they were easy to relate to in this strong and believable story. Be prepared for a lot of drama that will take you through this interesting read and will only leave you wanting to know what is going to happen in the next novel series. If you are interested in a wonderful romance...with lots of drama... you have come to the right place because "Unraveling the Past" would be a good read that I would recommend to you.
