Throwback Thursday - Whirlwind ( Welcome to Tyler #1)

Author: Nancy Martin
First Published in 1992 by Harlequin

A town filled with memorable friends and unforgettable lovers. Share the passions, the hopes and dreams of America s favorite small town.

Each book set in Tyler is a self-contained story; together, they stitch the fabric of a community.

When lively, brash Liza Baron arrives home unexpectedly, she moves into the old family lodge—where silent, mysterious Cliff Forrester has been living in seclusion for years .

When a body is uncovered on the lodge grounds, the community begins to piece together the truth about Tyler's first family, and a secret hidden for 40 years threatens to tear the town apart .

This is the first in a series put out by Harlequin in the 90s about the small town of Tyler, WI. I believe there are a total of 12 books in the series, each written by a different author. I have read most of them. If you get a chance to seek them out, I think you will enjoy reading them as well. The ongoing mystery of who the unearthed bones belong to and what happened to her will keep you guessing as the series progresses

Whirlwind helps set the stage and give you a sense of the small town of Tyler. We meet Liza, who is returning home to get her life back on track. She meets Cliff, who has been the caretaker of the lodge for year. Because of a tragic past, he has lived as a hermit for years. I liked the couple and loved seeing how their relationship blossoms. Liza really helps Cliff come out of his shell and work through things.

Whirlwind is a quick, light read. Something to bring to the beach this summer!
