Salting Roses by Lorelle Marinello
Synopsis: A young woman abandoned as an infant on an Alabama porch is horrified to discover that she is the missing heiress to a vast Connecticut fortune–a birthright she is desperate to reject in favor of her Peachtree Lane roots.
Gracie Lynne Calloway–once left in a coal bucket on a front porch in a small Alabama town–discovers on her twenty-fifth birthday that she is the kidnapped daughter of a late New England financier and heiress to a fortune. When the tabloid press and her unwanted greedy relatives descend on her, she has to admit the quiet secure life she’s known and loved is gone for good. As Gracie struggles to stabilize her world and come to terms with her new identity, she learns that belonging is not about where you came from but who you are. (SOURCE)
I received this in a Goodreads Giveaway a couple of weeks ago. When I first read the synopsis (which made me enter to win) I was happy to see a “Southern” fiction as a giveaway. I started reading it after finishing up something else and for the most part I enjoyed it.
