Review: The Untold Story of Carol Bingley (The 85th Copper Mountain Rodeo Book 5) by Jane Hartley


Carol Bingley has a certain reputation in Marietta, Montana. She’s an infamous gossip and overly generous with her sharp opinions. But Carol’s been hiding a painful secret.

Forty years ago, sixteen-year-old high school student Carol Franklyn was madly in love with a bad boy cowboy with an irresistible smile, and sexy swagger. The day he asked her to meet him at the local hangout, the Main Street Diner, Carol thought all her dreams had come true. What she didn’t know was that she had become a pawn in a cruel and manipulative game that would spin her life painfully off course.

Now happily married to a man who loves her unconditionally, Carol finally is ready to share her painful past, but will she be believed? And can she be forgiven when she faces two of Marietta’s most powerful, tight-knit families?

Carol has lost so much. But this Christmas, she hopes she can find two puzzle pieces of her past, and sets out on a journey hoping she will finally be healed, not once again hurt.


My Review:

An emotional and heartfelt story.

If you are familiar with Tule Publishing’s Marietta based books, you definitely want to read this one.  This is the perfect companion book to all of the other books.  Heck, I would even recommend it if you’re not familiar with the other books.  Carol Bingley is known as the town gossip and most people avoid and dislike her.  But she has a good reason for the way she is and I totally understand her now.  She has redeemed herself in my eyes.  This book is highly emotional, so you better grab some tissues before you start reading it.  I hope the story will continue, as the ending left me curious about something else.
