My Review

I purchased a copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.


Guarding His Secret by Jill Kemerer is book three of her Wyoming Ranchers series. It is also part of the Love Inspired K9 Companions series.

Randy has a secret he hasn’t told anyone, including his brother, and when his life turns upside down, Hannah comes to the rescue.

The author did a fantastic job of drawing out the revelation of Randy’s secret. Then providing a deep reason for why he has kept it a secret, and continues to to do so, even as he wishes for a future with Hannah. It tugs at the heart and I wanted nothing but a happily ever after for Randy and Hannah.

I also love when dogs are matchmakers and the retired K9 Companion in this book is the sweetest! If you love a sweet romance with adorable, matchmaking pups, then definitely give Guarding His Secret a read!

  1. I am currently reading The Bachelor and the Bride by Sarah M. Eden. It’s really good.
    “In recent years, in the area of London near Belsize Park, a young physician by the name of Sefton Palmer established himself as a reliable man of medicine and an individual of inquisitive disposition.”
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. These books, by Jill Kemerer, sound great, Danielle!
    My first line is from ‘The Invisible Wall’ by Harry Bernstein. “It was one of those rare summer evenings when it did not rain, and the smoke cleared from the atmosphere, leaving the sky a deep blue color, and the air soft and fresh and balmy.”
