Must-Get Monday #1


Welcome to Must-Get Monday, a new blog series where every Monday I will showcase a novel that has just released or is releasing soon that I just cannot wait to read.

I’m joining up with the lovely Becca at The Becca Files and several other stellar bloggers to showcase these fun upcoming reads.

This week, I am featuring:


Releases July 7, 2020

Amazon   ♥   Goodreads

I adore Tamera Alexader’s novels. Colors of Truth is the second novel in Alexader’s latest series, Carnton. If you have not yet read Christmas at Carnton or With this Pledge, I highly recommend you do before Colors of Truth releases in July.

About the Book

Based on the real history of Carnton, an antebellum home that served as a Confederate hospital, Colors of Truth follows the journey of an Irish immigrant arriving in a country where her kind isn’t wanted, and of a former Federal soldier returning to the scene of a battle that almost destroyed him.

In 1866 Catriona O’Toole arrives in the town of Franklin, Tennessee, searching for her younger brother, Ryan, who, according to his last letter, was headed for Franklin only days before the catastrophic Battle of Franklin. Ryan’s last note contained a stack of cash–enough money to bring his entire family across the ocean from Ireland. But after disease and illness tear through County Antrim and the O’Toole family, only Catriona and her seven-year-old sister Nora are left to make the journey.

Wade Cunningham, one of ten operatives in the newly formed United States Secret Service Agency, is on the hunt for counterfeiters. A tip leads him to Franklin and to Carnton, the home of wealthy Tennessean John McGavock. The recent murder of a fellow agent mandates that Wade keep his true identity hidden, as well as his past service in the Federal Army. But when he receives a note bearing only the name of the deceased agent, he realizes someone in town already knows who he really is.

As evidence in the case mounts, it eventually points to Catriona, but Wade is slow to want to believe it. Because his heart is swiftly becoming hers. However, Catriona’s sole focus is to find her brother and to provide a home and safety for her sister. In doing that, she somehow finds herself part of a burial committee for the over two thousand Confederate soldiers who were hastily buried in a field following the Battle of Franklin–and her deepest fear is that Ryan’s body is among those shallow graves.

Join the fun!

What’s a book that you can’t wait to get your hands on?
