OK story, not much depth. I picked it up because I love the Sisterchicks series by this author. This series, based on the only one I've read, is not as good. Just my opinion, though.

This is a very fast read, great story, believable characters, and a good lesson to be learned. God puts a young woman in a position where she can no longer hide her secrets, and sends a young man along who is able to help her uncover them.

This is a nice light read. No real depth, but it is a romance for goodness sake. Nice to read when tired.

The first in a series that has been out for awhile, but has been recovered and redesigned and re-released. I like being able to read the first in a series and trying to decide if it is one to keep reading on - especially when there are many books to follow and they are all already out!

Jessica has moved to this small town to start anew and she has brought in her bag some secrets and of course the reader doesn't get the secrets unveiled to them until the last 50 pages, it was hard to wait that long. The love story was sweet and although they are adults, it reminded me of the love people have in high school - innocent and sweet.

Book #1 in the Glenbrooke series. Every one was great, though each book stands alone - connected only through common characters.

Beginning her new life in a small Oregon town, high school English teacher Jessica tries desperately to hide the details of her past. Yet two individuals remain determined to discover the painful truth: the jealous woman who is Jessica's immediate superior, and Kyle Buchanan, a handsome, compassionate paramedic and dreamer. Will Jessica's past destroy her future? Or can she find a deeper peace that will end her need to keep Secrets? Readers will find out in this bestselling former Palisades release, now the first book of the new Glenbrooke series by bestselling author Robin Jones Gunn.

Robin Jones Gunn was a new author for me.

I found her on PBS and loved this book so much I had to get the rest of the series from the library because I knew I'd never have the patience to wait to swap for them all.

The titles are each from a scripture verse. Her writing is descriptive and funny and carries a message.

I also loved book #2 Whispers; #3 Echoes; #4 Sunsets - I'm picking up the next 3: Clouds, Waterfalls and Woodlands, today. I'm sure I'll love them, too!
