Caleb Malone returns to the states to recover after being wounded in
combat. He decides to take a job working for his brother's PI firm. His
first assignment sends him to the town of Keaton. A father suspects his
daughter's fiance' is cheating on her but he needs proof. All Caleb has
to do is get a few pictures, which might be easier said than done. Abby
Hughes works in her family's business as a real estate agent. A large
company is wanting to buy property in Keaton which would be a boost to
the small towns economy. Abby feels like things are moving along pretty
smoothly, with the property sale, until it becomes a battle of the land.
But it also becomes a personal battle as well. One deeply rooted in
secrets. As Abby and Caleb work together to try and figure it all out,
feelings between them begin to stir. Will those feelings and their faith
be strong enough to carry them through everything they'll face?
betrayal, forgiveness and, as the title indicates, Secrets, all come to
mind when I think about this story! It gets off to a running start and
holds your attention all the way to the end. One thing I always
appreciate about this authors work, besides the great writing, is the
way she keeps you guessing until the very end. But I've got to tell you,
she really surprised me with the twist at the end of this story. I LOVE
it when that happens! I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Caleb
(a.k.a. Digger) better. What a great guy. Abby made a fine leading lady.
Full of spunk but very tenderhearted and loyal. Her two boys were full
of personality too! There was a spiritual thread running through the
story which felt very natural and dealt a lot with forgiveness. A
message we can't hear often enough. This was a great installment to the
Wounded Heroes series. It can be read as a stand alone but I would
highly recommend the others books in the series: Kill Shot, Trespasses
and Betrayal. I look forward, with great anticipation, to Vengeance! I
also want to mention that I love the book covers for this series. They
just make you want to read the story!

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
