Fabulous Freebie Book Review - Lakeshore Secrets by Shannyn Leah

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Six years ago Kate left her family and the love of her life, Marc, behind. She never looked back, but she returns to Willow Valley for her grandmother's funeral. Kate has become a professional in locking away her feelings. She doesn't want anyone to find out the terrible secret that made her leave so many years ago. After many years of staying away being home feels really good. Will Kate be strong enough to face her fears and fight for the dreams she had to let go before?

Marc's heart shattered when Kate left without a word. He used to be a scrawny looking young boy, but is now a handsome man with a tender heart. After his father passed away Marc took over running the Caliendo Resort in Willow Valley. He never thought that Kate being back would stir up so many old feelings. He never loved anyone else, it has always been Kate. Is Marcs heart big enough to forgive Kate when he finds out the truth about why she left?

Kate and Marc are absolutely right for each other. They are soul mates and sparks fly every time they meet. Both of them have a lot of heartache and regrets to work through. I loved to follow their individual journey and was curious to see how they'd deal with these issues. Kate and Marc have always been there for everybody else and now the time has finally come for them to think about themselves and it was interesting to see where that would lead. I loved to read about the strong bond they have with their family and how they all look out for each other.

Lakeshore Secrets is a beautiful story about giving your first and only love a second chance. It's about family, secrets and forgiveness. From the very beginning it's obvious that Kate has kept the reason why she went away a secret from everybody and I couldn't wait to find out more about this. Shannyn Leah keeps the story interesting, always giving just the right amount of information at the perfect time. I loved the chemistry between Kate and Marc and I had no trouble at all to connect to the main characters. I love Shannyn Leah's writing style and I can't wait to read her stories about the rest of the McAdams family members.


If you love to read about true love, second chances and family secrets Lakeshore Secrets will be an excellent choice.
