Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn Secrets...My Review
Nestled within the darkness of night thoughts escape to betray us.
Jessica Morgan, 25 is enroute to pictureque Glenbrooke, Oregon to fulfill her new position as a teacher. Entranced by the bright sunlight of a warm summer day she becomes a victim of sudden unforseeable circumstances. In attempt to escape her present life she assumes a new identity, but she finds that even that comes with its own unique challenges.
Kind hearted Kyle Buchanan tries seeing the best in every situation. His profession relies upon happenstance and uncertainty, that of which can dramatically alter the course of a single day.
Will Jessica be able to hold onto buried secrets and will she be the only one trying to conceal their own?
A novel of reality and faith with a little bit of humor thrown in. An easy to read and mildly predictable storyline, but was surprised of her secret. I enjoyed connecting with Kyles character, as well as the students in Jessica's class and I found them to be realistic as well as personable. I did find Jessica's character a bit forced and connecting with her became more challenging. Dialogue flowed nicely and scenery was descriptive. Although I was entertained, I would recommend this book more to readers of young adult fiction. I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for my review.
