Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn
Jessica ran from her past... but can she hide from love?
Jessica Morgan wants desperately to forget the past and begin a new life. She chooses a small, peaceful town tucked away in Oregon's Willamette Valley as the place to start over---Glenbrooke. Once there, Jessica conceals her identity from everyone she meets---including the compassionate paramedic who wants to protect her and the jealous woman who wants nothing more than to destroy her.
Will Jessica's deceit ruin all hope for the future? Or will she find a deeper peace that allows her to stop hiding the truth from those who love her most of all?
All in all this book proved to be an enjoyable read. At first there were a few things that bugged me, such as the overuse of Jessica's name when "she" or "her" could have been used instead, and the fact that the second sentence in the book reads "The summer breeze whipped through her open window and danced with the ends of her shoulder-length, honey-blond hair." yet on the cover of the book is a woman with dark brown, if not black hair! Things like that tend to bug me, but it was really only irritating through the first little bit of the book. After a while I got swept into the story and didn't notice them. This book was fairly well written, and I would read more from this author.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
