Greetings FRIENDS OF HALLIE newsletter subscribers,
Thanks for joining me today for this very special cover reveal!
As I reflect back on the past eight months, I can tell you that the transition from writer to "published author" has been overwhelming, exhilarating, challenging, and humbling. What stands out the most though, are your wonderful messages, comments, and reviews of Paint Me Fearless.
Thank you. Especially to those of you who took the time to rate and review my book on social media, Amazon, B & N, etc. I have the Best Readers Ever!!
Guess what the most used phrase in ALL of the reviews was? Seriously. Guess.
Well, I'm happy to say your wait is (almost) over. I'm so excited for you to read the next book in the Shady Gully Series! Not only will you revisit some familiar characters, but you'll get to meet some brand new ones as well! Of course, Desi and Robin will be there, as Shady Gully will ALWAYS be rooted in their special history together.
Desi and Robin are, and always be, the matriarchs of Shady Gully. And of the series itself.
And now, how about a FIRST LOOK at the official BLURB of Book 2?
The much-anticipated second book in The Shady Gully Series picks up five years after Paint Me Fearless, Hallie Lee’s Best Selling Contemporary Christian Fiction novel. Book Two opens with a secret burial in the night. Amid a blinding, hellacious storm, a man digs a grave. He’s covered in blood, and he appears culpable. Guilty even. He also looks heartbroken…
WOLFHEART…earned his reputation as the town low life in Book One, inciting unrest and corrupting the youth with his home-grown product and signature scowl. But now, it’s five years later, and the scoundrel from across the creek is an upstanding citizen, a church-streamer, and a doting brother and uncle. Or is he?
LUKE…Desi and Lenny’s eldest son, feels responsible for Shady Gully. Always the serious one, Luke carries the weight of the town’s progress—or lack thereof—on his tense shoulders. Even as the community rolls their eyes as he expounds incorporation, Luke is a man on a mission. He’s determined to present Shady Gully with the amenities it deserves.
SHERIFF RICK…inherited the job when the last ornery official went and had a heart attack. Reluctant to trade his easy life of coasting to one of accountability, Ricky is surprised to find that the office gives him purpose. It fills a void he’s been trying to fill his whole life—with women, football, and other countless iniquities.
The morning after a torrential storm upends Shady Gully, its citizens wake to the news that Wolfheart’s beloved sister, Peony, has been brutally murdered. Revered as the Creek’s best healer, and adored by the folks in Shady Gully proper, Peony’s death rattles the community.
Luke dashes to the scene to help, and comes face to face with Bella, Wolfheart’s stunningly beautiful great-niece, and the product of Shady Gully’s most notorious scandal.
When Wolfheart stumbles onto the crime scene covered in blood, unapologetic and evasive, Sheriff Rick proceeds cautiously, as he’s mindful of the intense feelings Wolfheart evokes within the town. Extremes on both sides erupt when another body is uncovered, and soon Shady Gully explodes in chaos and violence.
As the fates of these three uncompromising and principled men collide, Desi and Robin, the beloved protagonists in Book One, find themselves smack dab in the middle of the hullabaloo.
When Wolfheart is finally led away in handcuffs, he has only one thought. How can he protect his niece and her daughter from the same fate as his sister?
