As followers of my Twitter account already know, I love to travel. Scandinavia was one of my favorite destinations, a factor that influenced my decision to read and spotlight this book. That and the gorgeous cover.
Recently released in English, Time for Honesty is the first book in a series by Mette Barfelt. Previously released in Norwegian, the series takes place in scenic Norway. I have only just started reading, but so far I am enjoying Emmelin’s story.
Welcome to Solvik — a seemingly cozy little town on the Norwegian coast. It’s an idyllic place with old, white wooden houses, almost a touch of paradise. However, under the surface lays intrigues, jealousy, and rivalry, threatening to destroy friendships.
Emmelin inherits her childhood home and must decide whether to sell it or move back to Solvik. With a husband who can’t stand the country life, and no jobs available, the decision seems like an easy one. Confronted with decisions made in her younger days, she now faces deep remorse and indecisiveness. Trying to justify her actions and make things right, Emmelin discovers she’s far from the only one withholding the truth and hiding dark secrets and lies.
In the midst of accusations, devious intentions, and new love, can Emmelin forgive and forget her father’s betrayal and let go of the family drama from her past? Is she finally ready to embrace the future and trust her second chance at romance and love?
Time for Honesty is the first book in the Solvik series, a sweet small-town romance series with elements of mystery.
Time for Honesty is available from Amazon.
