The themes of this book are: trust in your abilities, trust in others, but above all, trust in the Lord. An amazing story with an amazing purpose.
With his motorcycle, long hair and earring, he looked the part, but his rebellions often resulted from trying to do the right thing without thinking of the consequences first. After the untimely death of his brother, Lance is determined to follow in his brother's footsteps by doing things the right way.
When Lance's grandmother falls ill, she begs him to finish something for her, but she can't communicate all that she needs to tell him. That leaves Lance traveling to Italy to look up an old relative who can shed some light on the thing Nonna needs Lance to do for her. The trip to Italy leads him to California to the cottage where his grandmother was raised and where Reece Barret has started renovations to turn it into a bed and breakfast.
After the death of her father, Reece pours everything she knows into the renovation of the cottage as a final tribute to her life with her father. When Lance appears on her doorstep looking for a job and able to do all the things Reece doesn't like to do, she hires him on the spot. Lance has a way of getting Reece to open up and talk about things she has never told anyone before.
Lance also heightens Reece's hunger for God by the way he lives and the things he talks about. Lance shares his faith and his Bible with her.
As she begins to trust him and seek God, Lance is learning more and more about his family's connection to the cottage, but he can't tell Reece for fear she will question his motives for befriending her. Lance knows he must come clean and convinces himself that he will once he put all the pieces together, but will Reece find out what he's up to before he has a chance to tell her?
From skeletons in the cellar and ghosts in the attack, Secrets is a page-turner from beginning to the end. And for those who crave romance, the electricity between Lance and Reece will keep you guessing.
This story is full of rich and wonderful characters (including a dog that likes to ride a Harley) and wonderful descriptive scenes regarding Sonoma (I'm from this part of California) that places the reader right in the heart of this wonderful part of California. Ms. Heitzmann uses the secrets of Nonna as another vehicle for this story, and as a result the mystery surrounding her request of Lance will also keep the reader firmly engaged. Rese may seem unlikable in the beginning of this story, but readers should give her a chance before writing her off. Lance on the other hand seems almost too perfect except we the reader know from the beginning that he has a secret of his own. As a result of this push and pull the romance between Rese and Lance is strongly written, and the reader can believe that they are truly falling in love with each other. For a well-rounded read I highly recommend Ms. Heitzmann's "Secrets". You won't be disappointed.
Official Reviewer for [...]
Rese & Lance are polar opposites. She's a do-it-herself craftsman who's never truly expressed any emotion she's ever had. He's an artistic jack-of-all-trades who's lived his life in the shadow of his older brother & never finished anything he started. Oh, & he has an earring. As if their clashing personalities are not enough, Lance is a Christian while Rese observes God & the Bible as mere fairytale.
On a mission from his grandmother, Lance unexpectedly finds himself working for Rese as she restores a beautiful old house into a charming bed & breakfast. Little does she know that the house in which she has invested all of her finances was actually built by, & may still belong to, Lance's family. The two form an odd friendship, eventually moving beyond the obvious reasons why they should dislike each other. But as Lance digs further into his family's history while failing to make Rese aware of his true intentions, love begins to grow within both. Can it survive once the truth erupts?
Thought-provoking, at times heart-wrenching, this book keeps moving. I am amazed at Heitzmann's ability to create realistic characters who survive all-to-real situations. This story saunters along at such an easy, natural pace, I quickly lost track of time & finished it in only a few hours. The thoughts, feelings, reactions, & speech of each character are easy to understand, especially when considering the challenges each face. The only thing I found a bit distracting was the continued references to "terrorists", which is today's buzzword much like "communists" was in the '50's.
I laughed, I cried, & then I clasped my hands & said, 'Ahhh...' Sweet, refreshing, & intriguing. If you love romances, Kristen Heitzmann, or both, you will love this book. And don't worry...there's a sequel.
