#BlogTour The Secret - Violet's Story by Eliza J. Scott

Today it's my turn on the BlogTour The Secret - Violet's Story by Eliza J. Scott. A story full of quirky characters, plenty of emotional turmoil and a secret that could rock the boat and sink it like a rock - a contemporary romance.
About the Author
Eliza lives in a 17th-century cottage on the edge of a village in the North Yorkshire Moors with her husband, their two daughters and two mischievous black Labradors. When she’s not writing, she can usually be found with her nose in a book/glued to her Kindle or working in her garden. Eliza also enjoys bracing walks in the countryside, rounded off by a visit to a teashop where she can indulge in another two of her favourite things: tea and cake.

Eliza is inspired by her beautiful surroundings and loves to write heartwarming stories with happy endings.

About the book
It’s been two years since glamorous and ambitious Violet Smith fell head-over-heels in love with blacksmith Jimby Fairfax, and moved back home to the North Yorkshire village of Lytell Stangdale to be with him.

Life couldn’t get much sweeter. Their romance is blooming and Romantique - the business she set up with Jimby’s sister Kitty, designing luxurious underwear and burlesque costumes with the odd wedding dress throw in - is thriving.

But on a romantic weekend break, a face from her past triggers a series of events which send Violet into turmoil. She finds herself with no alternative but to reveal a secret she’s buried deep for the past sixteen years. A secret she hasn’t shared with anyone, not even her best friends, Kitty and Molly, and they share everything.

With the revelation forcing a wedge between herself and Jimby, heartbroken Violet fears that he won’t ever be able to think of her in the same way again and won’t want anything more to do with her.

As ever, Kitty and Molly rally round, offering their advice and support but Vi is worried that keeping her secret was just a step too far for Jimby.

Will she succeed in showing him their love is strong enough to overcome it?

The Secret – Violet’s Story is book 3 in the Life on the Moors Series.

This is book three in the Life on the Moors series. All the books can be read as standalone novels. They are excellent for a relaxing summer or beach read.

Violet seems to have it all. She has a caring and attentive boyfriend and life is good. Ok, Jimby is a wee bit accident prone, but he is the perfect boyfriend. In fact putting Jimby in the vicinity of any body of water is probably a recipe for disaster.

Everything is perfect and then Jimby puts a cherry on the top of her sundae by asking her to marry him. Could her life be more magazine article or social media sharing on point? Everything is just the way it should be, except there is the tiny issue of the secret Violet has kept to herself.

A secret she hasn't told her closest friends or her boyfriend. The question is whether the truth will destroy the world of perfection and happiness she has built like a tower of diamond studded cards. It is all just waiting to tumble down when her secret blasts through her life like an emotional tornado.

It's a fun and lovely summer read. A story full of quirky characters, plenty of emotional turmoil and a secret that could rock the boat and sink it like a rock - a contemporary romance. It's all about the truth and realising how much damage omitting the truth can cause in a relationship.

Saying that I have always been a big believer in having a few secrets. Not knowing everything won't kill a relationship. It just depends on the type of secret you are keeping.

Oh, and I loved the Yorkshire Glossary in the back of the book. It's a hoot.
