An Honest Love by Kathleen Fuller ~ 4 stars

An Honest Love
Kathleen Fuller
Hearts of Middlefield series #2
Thomas Nelson Publishers
About the book:
Anna must find the courage to tell Lukas the truth. Will he find the courage to forgive her?

Anna was once betrayed by someone she loved deeply. In an attempt to never be hurt again, she and her mother relocated to Middlefield, Ohio. It was the ideal place for Anna's broken heart to mend. In Middlefield, Anna withdrew from risk, placing all her attention on managing the new gift shop she and her mom bought.

When Lukas introuces himself, Anna can't resist her attraction to him. Though she finds herself falling in love, she's hiding a piece of her past in fear that their future will be destroyed if she tells him the truth.

But love can't be built on lies and the past comes rushing back to Anna in an irreversible way. Now Lukas must decide how he will react to Anna's betrayal. As they cling to their belief in an honest love, they realize it's a path they must walk together even as it leads to unexpected places.

My review:
I did not like this book as much as the first one in the series (which I loved), but I did like it. The writing was great. The author did a great job of portraying the Amish’s beliefs. I *loved* the secondary character’s romance, maybe even more than Anna’s. I would recommend this book to someone who loves Amish fiction.

Thanks to BookSneeze for the reviewer copy of this book.

I have not read any of her books. I love books about the Amish. Wanda Brunstetter is who I am hooked on right now and I almost finished with all her books.

Hope I get to read this. I would like to know Anna's secret. I may have a guess on what it is but still would like to read it to know :)

LoveMy2Dogs~ Kathy Fuller is an author that I would definitely recommend for an Amish Fiction. I bet you would like her.

Esther~ I thought I knew Anna's secret, but I didn't. Maybe you can figure it out. ;)
