About the Book
A Father-Daughter Genealogy Team Link Present to Past on Family Trees
On a solo ski vacation in Canyon Mines, Colorado, Tucker has a love-hate relationship with his wealth, spending indiscriminately while skiing fearlessly and preparing to conquer the overgrown slope of Hidden Run, a dangerous run not attempted in decades. As genealogist Jillian tries to uncover enough of Tucker’s family tree to understand his charming nature but reckless resolve, Jillian’s equally charming father, Nolan, cajoles Tucker into giving him ski lessons to get him talking about the suspicious circumstances surrounding his grandfather’s life in St. Louis in the 1930s.
On the surface, Tucker’s family’s history seems too perfect. The secret may lie in the sealed envelope Tucker carries with him at all times—even on the ski slope. When no one can find Tucker to tell him the fiancée he never mentioned turned up in Canyon Mines, they realize he must be off attempting to ski Hidden Run alone in a snowstorm. And they may be too late.

In My Opinion
When I read book one in Oliva Newport’s Tree of Life series, I had a couple of complaints. But, I’m all about giving an author a second chance, and I’m pleased to say that those issues I had with book one were nonexistent in book two.
In the Cradle Lies is another split time story where family history weaves well with a present dilemma. I liked Tyler, I appreciated that Jillian and Nolan have a more personal thread in this book, and the mystery of why Tyler was so intent on his mission kept the story moving.
Newport also moves the focus of the book from the inn that was prominent in book one to a few of the other businesses around town which gives readers a better feel for this Colorado haven.
I am so glad I decided to try another book by this author. The reward greatly outweighed the risk and now I’m looking forward to visiting Hidden Run again.
