Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn

Secrets (Glenbrooke, #1)
Book Description:

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.

My Thoughts:
This was a good book.  Jessica is leaving the past behind her and moving on.  She goes to Glenbrooke to be a high school teacher and keep her secrets safe and hidden.  Her life there starts out a bit rocky with a car accident and especially when the principal at the school dislikes her.  She has a good friend in one of the other teachers in the school and in Kyle who helped save her at the accident and is determined to protect her.
I liked Jessica.  She was a strong and loving person.  God's message is all through this book from the youth group to the friendships.  Kyle is the 'knight in shining armor' type and you can't help but love him. The principal was mean and you just disliked her and her motives.  Making Jessica trust is going to be difficult for anyone trying to get very close to her but with God's help, anything is possible.
I rate this a 4/5.  I will definitely check out the next in this series.

Thank you to Waterbrook for the review copy of the book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
