Reviews - What do customers think about Secrets (The Michelli Family Series #1)?

SHARE THIS ONE  Oct 5, 2008
a sixty year-old, ornery man loves this book.  Jan 12, 2008
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The characters, the plot, and the vein of goodness threading its way through the story blessed me. Thank you!
well-woven deception  Mar 14, 2007
I loved the idea behind this story: a young man seeks employment at a Bed and Breakfast as a cook because he believes the property belongs to his family. His employer is the B&B's new owner, Reese, who is a talented carpenter, and renovating the place, herself. Many charming elements enrich this book: the Bed and Breakfast location, the ethnic foods, Lance's chivalrous attitude and devotion to his family. The mystery of how the Michelli's lost the property is told cleverly in exciting flashbacks.

Although I enjoyed the book overall, there was something about it that didn't quite gel. Reese's character was very shallow at times. She definitely wasn't as well developed as Lance. But even with its quirks, Secrets is a well told story.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!  Jul 24, 2006
I haven't read such a good and fun book like this one in a long time! The story contains mystery, intrigue, romance, betrayal, humor, etc., and you can really get into the characters and their emotions. I can't wait to read the sequel, "Unforgotten!"

Great job, Kristen!
Beautiful, Character-Driven Love Story  Jul 17, 2006
This was the second book I tackled by Kristen Heitzmann, & it was worth every hour.

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 Mrs. 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.
