I was immediately intrigued by the title of this book–The Rancher’s Secret Wife–how intriguing. How does someone keep a wife secret? Was he hiding her someplace? Was he secretly trying to maintain two families in two different cities? He wasn’t (you’ll have to read the book to find out why Cheyenne was considered Reese’s secret wife).
My Review of The Rancher’s Secret Wife
This was a sweet read. It was clean and moved at a good pace. There are not many romance books that Christians can read, but this is definitely one of them. In fact, you could lend it to your teenage daughter (no kidding). Brenda does a good job of showing how the characters matured over the course of the story.
This was the third book in the Cooper Creek series and was easily read without feeling that you were missing out on the story because you hadn’t the first two books.
I liked that there was a subtle message that none of us are beyond the redeeming power of God’s grace. The Rancher’s Secret Wife also had several reminders that God does things in His own time at His own pace – all of it for our good.
