The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck has easily been placed at the top of my list of best books of 2017. In fact, this book could quite possibly be my favorite of all time!
Sarah had a rough start at love. She married her high school sweetheart, they became rich, but with the good comes the bad. Her husband, Patrick, was lying to her. He was unfaithful. She seemed to not be able to have a life apart from his. She was always known as Mrs. Patrick McDermott. She was not happy. But he was her husband. She loved Patrick. She wanted to start a family with him. But there was always an excuse. After this deal, after this date, maybe later. But never. One day, Sarah caught him with another woman, and that was the demise of their marriage. Sarah went forward with life, and joined a few book clubs. This is where she met her best friend, Piper. That is, after Piper insulted Sarah’s poetry in front of everyone. But that criticism turned friendship, and inspired Sarah to write a book. Smut, as Piper would call it. One day in book club, Sarah’s bag got spilled and her writing was revealed. When the other members read it, Sarah said it was her friends work. Raine D Bourgh. But, it was really hers. She had lied to everyone, and her best friend. Sarah and Piper had an argument and then lost touch. Sarah went on to have her book published. The book got wildly popular, as did she. “Raine” has several tours and television appearances. After her appearance on “The Tonight Show” Piper reached out to Sarah, and they was inseparable again.
This time, Piper led Sarah to Christ! Sarah then began going to church with Piper, where she bumps into the oh-so very handsome widower pastor, Ben. Sarah and Ben instantly connect. But, does their new connection stand the many tests thrown their way? And trust me, it is a page turner! There seems to always be something trying to tear them apart! You will have to buy this book to find out what happens to Sarah and Ben, and all the in between details. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this book! A sweet modern, clean, Christian romance book. So refreshing to read in this days views on relationships.
As I said before, this book is easily my favorite of 2017. You don’t want to miss this one! I highly recommend this book! If I could give it 10 Stars I would! But I am limited to 5! Definitely a 5 Star Book! I hope there will be more from this author! Maybe even a sequel! I could not put this book down!
