Book Review: "Secretly Yours" by Valerie Comer

Chef Lindsey Solberg moved back to Riverbend to help care for her little sister after their mother's death.  She has agreed to cater the teens' Valentine's Day fundraiser when she realizes that the youth pastor is none other than her high school crush, Nick Harrison-the man who trampled her heart.  Nick wants a chance to show Lindsey that he isn't the same selfish boy he used to be, but Lindsey has shut him out.  He has no other option than to send her gifts letting her know he is "secretly yours".

I loved "Secretly Yours".  Lindsey's reaction to seeing Nick again is totally believable and Nick is the kind of guy you want to be your secret admirer.  I enjoyed watching the characters grow in their relationship with God.  Valerie has done a great job incorporating the gospel message into the story and tying the kind of love God has for us to the love a man has for a woman.  "Secretly Yours" is a quick read, but it doesn't feel like you are missing out on any of the story.  The characters and settings are fleshed out and complete.  I also have to say, I like the idea of the "L" and "N" magnets for beginning drivers in British Columbia!

This is the first book I've read by Valerie Comer, but it will definitely not be my last one!  I would highly recommend this story to others who enjoy Christian Romances.

I was given a free ebook of this book by the author in order for me to review it.  A positive review was not required and all opinions are my own.

Sounds like a good book. What is the deal with the L & N though?

Hi Dottie. Funny you should ask! BC has a "graduated licensing sytem" for beginning drivers. For the first year, they are a "Learner" and must display the red magnet with the L. Among other things, they cannot drive without an adult in the car.

Then they do a road test and become "Novice" drivers and must display a green magnet with the N on it. They can drive without an adult with certain stipulations (zero tolerance for alcohol, speeding, etc, limited number of passengers...more)

At the end of that year they take another road test and can get a full adult drivers license.

Yep, that's how we roll in British Columbia! :)
