Cradle of Lies
Rebecca E Grant
This is the story of Cord Archer, he had the most terrible childhood being raised by his father who was a rapist and murderer. Cord finds that even once his father is in prison his name still attracts unwanted attention. He finally finds a ranch where he can get a measure of acceptance along with 2 possible romances but trouble continues to follow him throughout his life.
I read books for reviews without reading the blurb and initially I thought this was a historical book but it is actually modern covering the whole span for Cord Archer's life. I'm not entirely how you would classify this book as it covers both romance and a kind of murder mystery as Cord seems to attract trouble. I actually really enjoyed it as it went places I really didn't expect. It also had some quite angsty moments as his life falls apart time and time again and I found myself wondering how it could end well, but I won't tell you if it does!
An interesting read I would give this 4 out of 5 stars
