Secrets Book Review

I have a new book to tell you about today called Secrets written by Robin Jones Gunn.

Here is an excerpt from the back of the book:
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 the intriguing personalities she meets—including the compassionate paramedic who desires 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? T 
his heartwarming bestseller, book one in the Glenbrooke series, introduces the fascinating people of Glenbrooke in a compelling tale of romance and spiritual truth.
About the Author:

ROBIN JONES GUNN is the best-selling and award-winning author of more than seventy books, with over 4 million copies of her titles sold worldwide. Best known among them are the Christy Miller, Sierra Jensen, and Christy and Todd: College Years teen series. A Christy Award winner and a two-time finalist for excellence in fiction, Robin has also been a Gold Medallion finalist. She and her husband have a grown son and daughter and live in Hawaii.

Jessica Morgan was turning 25 and would be made Vice President of Morgan Enterprises, a multi-million dollar business if she stayed in California and obeyed her father's every command.  She left California with $300 and a degree from Oxford and headed to Oregon to the town of Glenbrooke to teach English at the high school.

Within a few miles of town, Jessica wrecked her car and was taken to the local hospital. She was found by a local firefighter who stayed with her and said if she needed anything, he would be glad to help.

The man who hired Jessica was also at the hospital as he had suffered a stroke and was in the same hospital as Jessica.  Jessica panicked when she realized she did not know where she was suppose to go because the man who hired her, the prinicipal, had taken care of all of the arrangements.

When she checked out of the hospital, she only had a few dollars left after paying for what she owed. Kyle, the firefighter, was there to take her where she needed to go. Jessica had never met anyone as kind and caring as Kyle. Kyle had called Ida, Hugh's neighbor and found out that Hugh had rented Jessica a house from Ida on Marigold Lane.

It was an older home but very cute. Unfortunately, the new principal, Charlotte was not nice from the beginning and Jessica prayed that Hugh would get better quickly. She met Teri, another teacher who was very nice and a Christian. She also had a very nice student named Dawn who talked to her about alot of things, especially a trip to Mexico to help build a church. Teri, Kyle and several other students along with Jessica went down and worked on the church.

While Jessica was there, something wonderful happened and I am stopping here so that you have something to look forward to!

Happy Reading!
