Review ~ Secretly Yours by Valerie Comer

♥FREE for Valentine's Day♥

About the Book

A Christian Romance Novella for Valentine's Day

Chef Lindsey Solberg agrees to cater the church's Valentine's Day fundraising banquet as a favor to her teen sister, but she's shocked to discover the bad boy from her high school days is now Riverbend's youth pastor. Seriously? How could he have changed that much? Nick Harrison has prayed for years for an opportunity to make amends. Now Lindsey's back in Riverbend and won't give him the time of day. What's a guy to do except leave a trail of gifts from a secret admirer?

Lindsey's heart takes a beating when she realizes the boy who was never good enough is now a far better man than she deserves.

My Review 

I absolutely loved this novella! The writing is tight and the characters are believable. I could just imagine how Lindsey must have felt when she goes back to her hometown after being away for years and the high school jerk jock is now her sister's youth pastor. With old hurts surfacing, how is Nick going to break through Lindsey's emotional barrier and apologize? 

There wasn't a single bit of lag in this story. I was fascinated with how everything was going to work out from the very beginning. Sure, there was a moment or two where I wanted to say, "Hey girl, open your eyes, Nick's changed." But I know how it is to hold onto things until I myself have reconciled them with the Lord. That's when you can begin to forgive others and reconcile with them. 

Comer has an incredible talent for combining great dialogue and real faith to captivate the reader. There was some secret gift giving, and while it was a sweet thing, it was also a spiritual thing. The Lord romances us when we don't even know, or fully understand who He is, and that's one thing about this story that came across so clear; Christ is our true 'valentine'. ♥

If you enjoy Contemporary Christian Romance, you will probably enjoy this little gem.
The author sent me a digital copy of the novella for review purposes. I wasn't required to write a positive review, just my honest opinion of the book. No compensation has been received.
