Reviews


 
Ms. Exline has written an action packed tale full of love and secrets kept because of it. The beginning of the story is outstanding because the reader is unaware that it is the recalling of a memory of Julia’s. It is an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish and grabs the reader from the very first word. The author built a relationship between the readers and the characters that keeps the reader enthralled. The author skillfully told a story using powerful words that consume the reader immediately. Ms. Exline revealed the secret a little bit at a time keeping the audience interested until the very end. The Tree of Buried Secrets is an outstanding and enthralling read written by an obvious master of words.

Cassie Exline has found a touching way for this mother to reveal a deep, dark secret to her beloved son. The characters are realistic and loveable, especially Julia. Learning about her secret and why she lived with it for such a long time was so well worth the read. This story has it all- setting, likeable characters, and a plot that will intrigue readers within all genres.

Rites of Romance Reviews:

Exline’s tale unfolds easily and is well-paced. She writes seductive love scenes that tantalize, but she does not over use them. All in all, a strong romantic story with a hint of darker elements. I look forward to exploring other works by Exline.

The Long and the Short of It
Review by Amaranth
  
Exline did an excellent job of bringing to life the sorrows and joys that Julia experienced all those years ago, and her melancholy over what really happened that night.  The writing and editing was clean, and I am happy that I had the opportunity to read and review this book.

Exline did an excellent job of bringing to life the sorrows and joys that Julia experienced all those years ago, and her melancholy over what really happened that night. Ms. Exline spent a little time explaining Julia’s and her husband’s families and how the family business came to be. At the time of reading, I felt that it was too much information and taking from the story a bit. However, after finishing the book and understanding the secret that Julia had to reveal, I feel that Ms. Exline gave just enough information to help her readers understand the full story; and without that story, it would have all been a bit confusing trying to follow how that night and the following days and years progressed. The writing and editing was clean, and I am happy that I had the opportunity to read and review this book.
