Undertow, the shocking sequel to Dragonfly, is OUT NOW!

Early Readers are saying...
"An incredibly powerful sequel to Dragonfly. I found myself riveted to the last page by the depth of feeling, loss, tragedy, and love in this gorgeously woven story. A definite must-read.--Jolene Perry, author of Out of Play  

"As far as a second book for a series goes, Undertow knocked it out of the park.--Jessica, Bend in the Binding reviews
"My God I am so emotional! I have to give a huge KUDOS to Leigh because she knows how to write a story like no one's business!" --Tee, Diary of a Book Addict reviews
 
"Undertow pulled me under and left me gasping for air and wanting so much more. I couldn’t stop thinking about these characters, and now I’ll never be able to get a shirtless Bill Kyser out of my head." --Magan Vernon, bestselling author of The Only Exception
"Amazing! The characters are lovely, but they're also flawed--that sort of 'realness' and honesty breathes life into them and is truly refreshing to come across as a reader. A fantastic story with a unique execution.--Kristin, Goodreads reviewer

Falling in love will pull you under...
-Bill Kyser has a plan to take the sandy farms of his hometown and turn them into a world-class tourist destination--and become a billionaire in the process. 
-Alexandra "Lexy" LaSalle has a plan to change her life by becoming a world-famous artist. 
-Meg Weaver has a plan to hold onto Bill no matter what she has to do.

In Dragonfly, Bill Kyser gave Anna the three journals that held the story behind the powerful developer's seclusion and the damaged lives of his family members. 
Anna hopes to find a way for Julian to know the truth, but as she digs deeper into the tragic events of the past, she realizes silence could be the only option. 
Now she's in an alliance with the man she formerly feared. And if Julian finds out what she knows, she could lose for good the boy she's starting to love.

Three bad things I learned this year:
-People you trust lie, even parents. 
-That hot guy, the one who’s totally into you, he might not be the one. 
-Things are not always how they appear.
Three good things I learned this year:
-Best friends are always there for you, even when they’re far away. 
-That other hot guy, the one who remembers your birthday, he just might be the one. 
-Oh, and things are not always how they appear.

Anna Sanders expected an anonymous (and uneventful) senior year until she crossed paths with rich-and-sexy Jack Kyser and his twin sister Lucy.
Pulling Anna into their extravagant lifestyle on the Gulf Coast, Lucy pushed Anna outside her comfort zone, and Jack showed her feelings she’d never experienced... Until he mysteriously withdrew.
Anna turned to her internship at the city paper and to her old attraction for Julian, a handsome local artist and rising star, for distraction. But both led to her discovery of a decades-old secret closely guarded by the twins’ distant, single father. 
A secret that could permanently change all their lives.

My Review...

This suspense is killing me with the why's and hows and all the secrets.


In this book, through the three journals we finally get to find out what happened in the past with Meg, Alex and Bill.


With Meg we find out how superficial and shallow she is yet still has a big heart but is a bit naive to the reality of life and expectations.

With Alex in Dragonfly, I thought she was a bit of a bitch but with her journal and the others you realize that Alex is really a sweet heart and means well just made some bad choices and instead of dealing with the reality she has but up brick walls to keep everyone away.

With Bill,  he is a single minded driven person with a plan but life gives him some bumps on the way. I loved seeing both Bill's POV after reading Mrg's and Alex's.  My heart went out to him but because of the past he too has made walls from getting hurt which, unfortunately this has also hurt his family. However, Bill still has drive and he wants what he wants and is patient to wait until he gets it.


I don't envy Anna with this knowledge. She is already torn between two boys but with this truth she follows her heart and chooses Julian.  At this point I will admit I am totally Team Julian and have been since Dragonfly.


The truth is going to come out and unfortunately Anna is going to get caught in that crossfire but I hope there is enough forgiveness that all can find happiness.  I am not sure what is in store for Anna but we do know jack will be back and I am left biting my nails waiting for what is going to happen next. My fingers are crossed for Anna and Julian as well as Bill and Alex.
