Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn

Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn is the story of Jessica Morgan and Kyle Buchanan. Jessica born into affluence but has decided to turn her back on it all and pursue life in a small town as a high school English teacher.

She goes about it in rather the wrong way. She runs away from home just before her 25th birthday. On her 25th birthday she would come into her trust fund and also become a Vice-President in her father’s company. Only she doesn’t want it and so she disappears to Glenbrooke, Oregon.

Her first day there she has a car accident and meets a nice firefighter, enter Kyle. He’s smitten and she’s aloof.  He’s a Christian and she’s not.

The book is their story. They both have secrets that want to hold them back. His previous fiance dies from AIDS, not pneumonia like the townspeople think and she is really a wealthy young heiress. Can they trust each other enough to share their secrets?

The story was cute. I didn’t care for the lies the characters felt they had to tell to be loved and accepted. I thought Kyle’s character didn’t sound too manly, more like a woman writing the dialogue for a man and that’s what it was.

I have read books by Robin Jones Gunn in the past. I’m a big fan of the SisterChicks series. But this book, and it is one in series, didn’t grab me like other books have.

I give it 3 out of 5 turning pages.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of review.
