Do you love authors who bring you right into the story…starting at page one? This is one who does. Do you love stories with lost heirs, mysterious invalids, or the triumph of good over evil? This story’s got all that. How about rich plot twists, delightful use of language, and heroines who wrap you, as a reader, around their little finger? You will not be disappointed.
All to say, A Stranger’s Secretsatisfies on all counts and you won’t want to miss it. Set smack dab in the Regency period (my favorite historical genre) the book is set in Cornwall, a fascinating location. Eakes makes it all come alive and you won’t want to put this one down.
Have you read any other regencies set in Cornwall? Please leave a comment. Thanks :).
The twists and turns of love are thoroughly satisfying here — especially if you like heaping dollops of delicious historical detail. This is the second book I have enjoyed by this author and she treads some unique ground, both with her plot twists, and characters. I can’t say that I’ve ever encountered a book set in 1776 Alabama.

An emotionally satisfying book. The authors bring some complex characters to vivid life and the journey is so worth it. The dialogue in this book is super-fresh and real-feeling and so interesting. This is for a wide range of readers as it has a lot of depth and interesting twists to it. Not run-of-the-mill. In a way, it defies our typical categories. I suppose it could be called emotional suspense, or family drama.
Have you read any un-categorizable fiction lately? Please comment.
Wow, it’s been a while since I had to put a book down because I couldn’t stand the tension. Hannon’s tight plot, her lovable characters, her impeccable pacing — they all show why she is a rising star in the inspirational romantic suspense genre. I don’t want to give away any of the details/fun for the reader and I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed if you love this genre.

The quote on the back cover says a lot about this book: “There is no perfect family, no life free of mess. But in the midst of all of it, God is there, reminding us, “My child, I got this.” So, “if” you every lose it, feel like you are going crazy, or scream your guts out, this book has you covered. Perry has so many great stories from her own life (How transparent can you get?) and those tales bring home some awesome parenting messages. Things like: it’s God’s plan, not ours. This book is so real, so gritty, so painful at times, yet brimming with positivity based on God alone. She shares much about her autistic son.
The main ideas of this charming non-fiction book include making peace with your past, feeling good (in Christ’s power), and making the most of your life, not being mired down with past failures. Loaded with powerful stories of real-life experiences to prove points, this book would be helpful for dealing with guilt (and that’s just for starters.
