Secrets - Robin Jones Gunn

I was so excited to read this book, as I have read books from Robin Jones Gunn in the past and really enjoyed them. I dove right in.

After a few chapters, I started thinking, "This book reminds me of another that I have read." By the middle of the book, I realized I have already read this book before. Within the last year!

It's a high compliment to the book that I have read this book so recently and yet I continued reading it.

Robin Jones Gunn is a great writer, and I always enjoy her books. They are candy for the mind. In Secrets, the reader finds Jessica running away from something. In her attempt to run away, she also runs away from things which would bring hope, such as a budding relationship with a town firefighter.

As in all secrets, Jessica realizes that the truth must come out for a relationship to go forward. Secrets takes us on her journey of finding truth, both in her heart and from her God.

Good read, 4 stars!

Clouds by Robin Jones Gunn

Jonathan and Shelly were best friends growing up. As so often does, time broke them apart. Now they have a second chance, or at least that is how it seems. Unfortunately, a previous engagement stands in the way of a reunion of their friendship and love.

I enjoyed this book. It makes a statement that I think is so important. So frequently, women think that once they get married they will be happy. Or their life will come together in marriage...SO not TRUE!

Robin Jones Gunn uses Shelly to explain the truth that a relationship with Christ should come before any other relationship. It is only when Shelly deepens her relationship with the Creator of the Universe that she finds out how to be truly content, with or without Jonathan.

A great read and a great reminder of what is truly important in life.

4 stars!
