Publisher's Summary

Adored for her sweeping Rocky Mountain Legacy series, Kristen Heitzmann inspires countless fans with her tales of Christian faith and romance. The search for a family secret drives Lance Michelli to the old villa once owned by his grandparents. But its present owner, Rese Barrett, is independent enough, and beautiful enough, to derail his efforts, distract his heart and stir his faith.

©2007 Kristen Heitzmann; (P)1992 Recorded Books, LLC

    "Not the complete book..."

    I have read this book before and once I got to the end I knew that I was missing something. Just went to the library and checked out the book on CD, it is actually 18 hours and 45 minutes. About 1/2 of this book is missing. Called audible and got a refund and had no problem. This is a wonderful book but don't purchase through audible unless they add the rest of the book. The series is awesome and anyone that enjoys this genre should enjoy the book, just not through audible. I have been with audible for about 4 years and have bought 100's of books, this is the first that was not complete and as I said, I had no trouble getting a refund...........

    "I want my life back"

    Wow! I am never hard on books but this is the exception! Others said this book was bad and I thought I would try. I even went so far to get the next one to see if there was something I was missing.
    Forget my money/credits! I just want my life back that I put into this!
    Any book that you have to read the last 2 minutes 5 times to make sure you didn't miss something is just wrong!

    "All around Good Listen"

    The series was a good listen. Secrets is the first of the book series followed by Unforgotten then Echoes. I found parts of the book and series to be very slow but it came together in the end. I thought the characters of Rese and Lance to be a bit boring at times, but the knight in shining armour always comes through. Put your headphones on and clean your house. The time will pass.

    "Loved the hardcopy"

    I've read all three books in this series and really enjoyed them. The audio was just as good until we got to the end of part 2 and it seems that a major part of the ending is missing! That was disappointing! I'm hoping the next two books are complete!

    Story
    "Are people really this stupid?"

    Overall, I liked the story, I liked the world that was built, I even like the writer's narrative style.

    What I didn't like was how completely stupid the characters were - especially Lance. Really? Guy who attends church every day somehow doesn't realize that keeping secrets isn't a good idea? And, we had to wait 3/4 of the way through the book for his friend to drop the pearl of wisdom on him that anyone remotely acquainted with scripture probably had drumming in their head when they read the book title?

    Rese? Ok, I get more of her journey (though she is obviously as thick as a brick). Star? She's probably the most authentic of all the characters.

    Nonetheless, I still enjoyed aspects of the story, it gave me something to listen to that wasn't all garbage and it even had a few redeeming moments.

    The performance? One of KK's best - seems that when she has to read with an American accent she doesn't get overly strident, and her variations were quite acceptable.

    "Teepee"
    Would you listen to Secrets again? Why?

    Yes, I love this series, suspense and yet Christian theme makes it a good clean listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Biblical prospective


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She gives each character a voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me want to keep reading, couldn't put it down. Cooked Thanksgiving dinner listening to book two.

    "Beautiful testament to Family, friends, and God bringing peace"

    I enjoyed the story full of secrets emerging through God's plan and the growth of friendship and love. I would have liked for a little more completion of Reese's plans for the future....an epilogue or something to tie up things better. But the story was great.

    "Amazing series!"

    This entire series is amazing! It starts back in the 1800s and then continues in this book in present day. I would HIGHLY recommend this book!

    "Good book"

    The only thing that bothered me was the sound of the Narrator swallowing. That needed to be taken out. Otherwise good

    "irritating...."

    I have only listened through chapter 5 and I cannot take anymore of the readers voice or the story itself. The cat and mouse between the two main characters is just annoying. Sorry... i just don't care for this author nor the narrator.
