Secrets in the Shadows (Leroy's Sins, #1) by T.L. Haddix
This is a romantic mystery that deals with some heavy issues. After Lauren's uncle attempted to rape her when she was 16, her cousin Margie disappeared. Left emotionally scarred, Lauren carried on with her life and now owns her own bakery. When her uncle returns to the area though, old wounds are opened and scary things begin to happen. So many different people are mentioned in this book that is set in a small town, that it felt a bit like tuning in to a soap opera that I had never seen before and it was difficult to keep up with all of the characters and their relationships to one another.
I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading others by this author.
