Casey Peeler is a new-to-me author, and if you have read my reviews before, you might have picked up on the fact that I’m definitely always up to read someone and something new. I’ve found some new favorite authors that way. The blurb for Southern Secrets was intriguing, and the cover caught my eye. I’m a bit of a cover whore, I’ll admit. I’m also a Georgia Peach through and through, so books based in the deep south usually grab my attention. So with all of that going for it, I jumped into this ...more

3.5 Star book

This is a novella but I felt it was really more of a teaser. The whole story from beginning to end is sixty pages long and leave the reader with a HUGE cliffhanger.

I found the story fun to read and was a great introduction to the characters of Jordyn and Ridge. They have been high school sweethearts and all she wants is to be engaged. Then one night happens and her whole world is turned upside down. She has an unexpected hero in her corner and, as the reader, I am not sure who I wa

This is the first time in reading this author so it was a delight. Also since I do live in the south this made for a double pleasure. Jordan thought she was in for a regular life being a regular wife. Oh but life hum it seemed to have a not so regular waiting in the side lines. I hardly read contemporary anymore because of the stories but this held my attention. She has to decide exactly what she is going to do and what direction. This is a quick one which does kinda leave you wanting more. This ...more

Southern Secrets
By Casey Peeler
Main Characters: Jordyn and Cole, Abott, and Ridge
I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book without bias or persuasion from the author.
5 out of 5 stars
This is a novella about 1-hour reading. There is Ridge who Jordyn's high school sweetheart and Abott who saves her from an accident and Cole who loves her also. This does end in a cliffhanger and now I have to wait to see who she ends up with. I loved it!

Southern Secrets is a short quick read. It hooked me from the beginning and had me wishes for more. I can't wait to read more about these characters. Jordyn is a sweet girl. She thinks her life is all planned out. She's just waiting for her high school sweetheart, Ridge, to propose but one night things come crashing down. Jordyn has a lot on her plate right now and I can't wait to see how it all plays out. ...more

This was a nice surprise for me to read. I have been reading a lot of MC books so this little novella was a breath of fresh air. We meet Jordyn who has her whole life mapped out and when things go wrong she is turned upside down and has to rethink the plans she has made. But I loved seeing her process things.

This is a novella that is a must read on it. You will love the characters and the scenery had me falling in love.

This book grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let you go. The characters are so relatable and you find yourself cheering them on. I'm not sure who I want the main character to end up with and the story leaves you with such a cliff hanger you have time to think about it and decide. I highly recommend this book! ...more

Southern Secrets is a quick read that introduces us to the characters in Casey Peeler’s next novel. I connected with Jordyn right away and was hooked from the beginning. I’m excited to see what happens and who she picks.

I loved this short read. It’s drama packed from the beginning with a yearning for a proposal with an ending that shocked me. The main character Jordyn has a lot more going on with secrets as the title suggests. Cole has it own history and somewhat secret himself. Small towns hear everything and usually side with whatever story has the most drama.
