Tempest Rising – Episode 1 – Julie Kenner

About the Book:

“Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy… Get ready. The storm is coming.
Nestled among rolling hills and painted with vibrant wildflowers, the bucolic town of Storm, Texas, seems like nothing short of perfection.
But there are secrets beneath the facade. Dark secrets. Powerful secrets. The kind that can destroy lives and tear families apart. The kind that can cut through a town like a tempest, leaving jealousy and destruction in its wake, along with shattered hopes and broken dreams. All it takes is one little thing to shatter that polish.
Ginny Moreno didn’t mean to do it, but when she came home to Storm, she brought the tempest with her. And now everyone will be caught in its fury…”

My Five Star Review:

Wow!! Just Wow!! This book was an amazing start to a series I just know I’m going to love!!!  Several authors are working together to bring us this series of short stories and some very interesting characters.

Move over Dallas, Dynasty, Revenge, Brothers and Sister, and Scandal etc. because Storm, Texas is the place to be. So far there has been tragedy, adultery, domestic abuse, teen love, adult love, a sexy Sheriff, a Senator with questionable ethics and so much much more and that’s just the first episode.  If you love a good nighttime soap opera, then start this series.

You meet many families in this first book which made me need to grab a pencil and map out a family tree.  After I finished this book I realized there is a website dedicated to Rising Storm.  Visit the link here to get update to minute info on the series and many family trees.  Link here: Rising Storm Books

White Lightning – Episode 2 – Lexi Blake

About the Book:

“As the citizens of Storm, Texas, sway in the wake of the death of one of their own, Daddy’s girl Dakota Alvarez also reels from an unexpected family crisis … and finds consolation in a most unexpected place.”

My Five Star Review:

This episode is basically about Dakota Alvarez.  This teenager is in a very bad place and makes some decisions that could completely alter her life.  But make no mistake, the stories of the other Storm residence keep moving forward in this episode.

Crosswinds – Episode 3 – Elisabeth Naughton

About the Book:

“Lacey Salt’s world shattered with the death of her brother, and now the usually sweet-tempered girl is determined to take back some control—even if that means sabotaging her best friend, Mallory, and Mallory’s new boyfriend, Luis.”

My Four Star Review:

This episode brought me right back to high school (which was a really long time ago) and all the “best” friend dynamics that go right along with it.  I had to shake myself out of the bad memories a few times just to get through the book.  Oh to be a young, foolish and stubborn teenager again.  Sorry Mom for all the craziness of my teen years.
