Joni's Review ~ Covered in Coal by Silla Webb

**This book is intended for a mature reading audience 
and isn't suitable for readers under the age of 18.** 

Carly Jo Simon believed that Colton Weston was her future, but he shattered her heart into tiny pieces. Just like any little girl would, she assumed her daddy would always be by her side. Unbelievably, he turned his back on her when she needed him most, leaving her with no one in her life to turn to for support. Without options, Carly runs away from the only home she's ever known, leaving behind her heartache and the betrayal of the two men she loved most.

Seven years later, Carly reluctantly returns to Kentucky. Her daddy is dying of cancer and Colton is nothing like the boy she once loved and left. After her daddy passes, Carly must uproot her life in South Carolina and take control of Simon Coal Company, where she has no choice but face the pain of her past.

Can Carly keep her secrets buried deep beneath the black Kentucky coal and her heart safe from the fiery Colton Weston?

Covered in Coal is an excellent debut novel by Silla Webb! I knew going in that this book was going to leave me standing on the edge of a cliff. I had NO idea that Silla would be there to push me off that cliff at the end. So, here I am dangling from a mountain side with absolutely no idea what is going to happen next. I mean, talk about a WTH moment!

I loved Carly Jo, she is strong and independent, yet she’s not so strong that she can’t be hurt. She holds it all in until she can’t take it any longer. I had mixed feelings about Colton in the beginning, but I have to admit I could feel his love for Carly Jo. Then there is Luke. Oh poor Luke, my heart broke for him but he needs to move along because Carly is Colton’s.
(You take note of that Silla!!)

I absolutely adored Heidi Jo. Silla did such an amazing job with this little girl that I could visualize her every action. I can’t wait to see what this little sassy princess does in book two.


I have to give Covered in Coal 5 HUGE wanna stalk the author STARS!!

Despite carrying the weight of other’s secrets on her back, Carly’s own secrets burden her deeply. Although she battled to keep her heart safely guarded from Colton Weston, he owns every inch of her.
