About The Book:  Jessica ran from her past...but can she hide from love?  Jessica Morgan wants desperately to forget the past and begin a new life. She chooses a small, peaceful town tucked away in Oregon’s Willamette Valley as the place to start over—Glenbrooke. Once there, Jessica conceals her identity from the intriguing personalities she meets—including the compassionate paramedic who desires to protect her and the jealous woman who wants nothing more than to destroy her. Will Jessica’s deceit ruin all hope for the future? Or will she find a deeper peace that allows her to stop hiding the truth from those who love her most of all?   This heartwarming bestseller, book one in the Glenbrooke series, introduces the fascinating people of Glenbrooke in a compelling tale of romance and spiritual truth.

About The Author:  Robin is a God-Lover, storyteller, happy wife and blessed mama. Her 82 books have sold nearly 4.5 million copies worldwide.  According to one of my favorite authors, Patsy Clairmont, "Robin is compelling and delightfully funny, but bring tissue to her speaking events! Her honesty is disarming and her rich experiences add tremendous heart to her gift of storytelling."

My Thoughts On The Book:  As a high school teacher I like to preview teen books.  When my students ask for recommendations of what to read it is nice when I can guide them to something worth reading. This book fits the bill in every way.  It was very entertaining and intriguing. I read it in less than a day, so I know my students will be able to read it in a couple of days. Robin Jones Gunn does a terrific job of creating life-like characters. I really loved the struggles Jessica faced.  High School kids face these same trials every day.  I actually chose this book because I wanted something light to read.  This is the first book in the Glenbrooke series and after the first few pages I found that that I was hooked. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys series books or Christian romance.  I loved the very end of the e-book pages where the remaining Glenbrooke series is introduced.  There is an invitation that states;  "Come to Glenbrooke...A quiet place where souls are refreshed."  It makes me want to travel there....even if it is just for a bit....and inside the pages of a book!

All they asked for was an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
