Book Review - "Secrets"

Robin Jones Gunn's Glenbrooke Series begins with book 1 "Secrets."  This is a book that I enjoyed and read through very quickly!
Jessica wishes to forget her past and move on by starting a new life.  However, Jessica's move starts out with an accident right outside of town resulting in a rescue from a very handsome man, Kyle.  Jessica finds herself teaching in the local school, becoming best friends with Teri and fighting her feelings for her rescuer Kyle. Adding additional drama is the principal whom wants Kyle for herself and decides to make Jessica's life miserable and other roadblocks that are through in Jessica's way.  Jessica finds herself as a part of a missions trip and this is life changing for her in several ways including the most important, finding her way to Christ. 
Each and everyone of us has secrets of some kind and Jessica is trying to hold onto her secrets and start a new life.  I found Jessica to be a great main character as she was so "real," meaning she could be a friend or the girl next door and she was easy to relate to and empathize with.  Kyle is also a main character who was great and a man whom I'm sure many would love to have rescue them and fall in love with!  However, Teri was my favorite character.  There is something about her as she is by no means perfect as no one is, but she is such a loyal friend to Jessica and has an infectious personality.  I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys Christian romance and wants to escape for a few hours to Glenbrooke!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Company in exchange for a honest review.*


  1. I absolutely love the Glenbrooke series, it takes me to such a happy place and I could read them over and over again. Sounds cliche, lol, but it's true!

    1. I know what you mean!!! I feel that way about Susan May Warren's Deep Haven series as well! :)
