Carolyn Lawrence Announces the Release of Romance Suspense Book The Mess We're In
Atlanta, Georgia - Carolyn Lawrence is proud to offer her debut work, The Mess We're In, hitting bookstores everywhere on August 14, 2018.
The Mess We're In is a compelling story, focused on how blood isn't always thicker than water. In the small town of Dacre, Georgia, where everyone knows each other and their business, the arrival of a television production cast and crew stir up bad memories for Lily Shaw, local historian and guardian to her nephew.
When Dutch Sturgess, the lead actor for the series, decides to help the nephew with his acting, Lily and Dutch strike a deal to learn how to tolerate each other, only to find they have more in common than they thought. Both are burdened with past family traumas and through their eventual romance, they learn that family is what you make, not always what you are born into. The only thing standing in their way is Eli Bradley and his brothers, who have a long-standing feud with the Shaw family and vow to make good on the blood they believe the Shaws have spilled.
The Mess We're In wrestles with the notion of what makes a family and what family can do to each other, in the name of love. Lawrence examines the ideas of motherhood, family and life in a small Southern town. She asks the question: what does it take to be a parent? The answer can be somewhat surprising.
A strong first novel, The Mess We're In is an engrossing tale of love, family and the tangled mess we can find ourselves in when worlds collide.
