Summary

Adored for her sweeping Rocky Mountain Legacy series, Kristen Heitzmann inspires countless fans with her tales of Christian faith and romance. The search for a family secret drives Lance Michelli to the old villa once owned by his grandparents. But its present owner, Rese Barrett, is independent enough, and beautiful enough, to derail his efforts, distract his heart and stir his faith.

Excellent

Really enjoyed discovering the secrets and the characters as the story unraveled the importance of seeking God in all that they do.

Not the complete book...

I have read this book before and once I got to the end I knew that I was missing something. Just went to the library and checked out the book on CD, it is actually 18 hours and 45 minutes. About 1/2 of this book is missing. Called audible and got a refund and had no problem. This is a wonderful book but don't purchase through audible unless they add the rest of the book. The series is awesome and anyone that enjoys this genre should enjoy the book, just not through audible. I have been with audible for about 4 years and have bought 100's of books, this is the first that was not complete and as I said, I had no trouble getting a refund...........

I want my life back

Wow! I am never hard on books but this is the exception! Others said this book was bad and I thought I would try. I even went so far to get the next one to see if there was something I was missing.
Forget my money/credits! I just want my life back that I put into this!
Any book that you have to read the last 2 minutes 5 times to make sure you didn't miss something is just wrong!

All around Good Listen

The series was a good listen. Secrets is the first of the book series followed by Unforgotten then Echoes. I found parts of the book and series to be very slow but it came together in the end. I thought the characters of Rese and Lance to be a bit boring at times, but the knight in shining armour always comes through. Put your headphones on and clean your house. The time will pass.

Loved the hardcopy

I've read all three books in this series and really enjoyed them. The audio was just as good until we got to the end of part 2 and it seems that a major part of the ending is missing! That was disappointing! I'm hoping the next two books are complete!

Teepee

Would you listen to Secrets again? Why?

Yes, I love this series, suspense and yet Christian theme makes it a good clean listen.

What did you like best about this story?

The Biblical prospective

What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She gives each character a voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me want to keep reading, couldn't put it down. Cooked Thanksgiving dinner listening to book two.

Beautiful testament to Family, friends, and God bringing peace

I enjoyed the story full of secrets emerging through God's plan and the growth of friendship and love. I would have liked for a little more completion of Reese's plans for the future....an epilogue or something to tie up things better. But the story was great.

Amazing series!

This entire series is amazing! It starts back in the 1800s and then continues in this book in present day. I would HIGHLY recommend this book!

Wonderful With Words

Heitzmann always speaks the souls of her characters. I appreciate that she tells the inner stories of emotional trauma and mental illness as far as it was understood at the time of publication. As a victim of domestic abuse however, I wish for more stories that updated the truth about those relationships. Star would not represent the typical victim. Abusers choose those they target as opposed to victims choosing abusers. I would love it if Heitzmann were to write a new book based on new information about the dynamics of domestic abuse relationships.
