The Secret Between Them by Susanne Dietze.

After a lifetime of questions,
She’s ready for some answers.

In her mother’s hometown, Harper Price is sure she’ll finally learn about the grandfather and father she never knew. But that means working with grumpy local lawyer Joel Morgan. The single dad is wary of Harper, even as her kindness to his daughter warms his heart. Winning his trust is Harper’s first challenge…but not her last as her quest reveals shocking truths.

My Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book from JustRead Tours. 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.


The Secret Between Them by Susanne Dietze is the fifth and final book in her Widow’s Peak Creek series from Love Inspired.

I have adored this whole series and Joel and Harper’s story was just as sweet as the others. All the couples in the series have been wonderful and I have loved getting to read about each one.

Looking at The Secret Between Them specifically, this review itself feels hard to write because I don’t want to give anything away. The tension between Joel and Harper pulls a reader in from the start. And then, the suspense surrounding Joel’s adoption of his step-daughter had me wanting to peek at the end to make sure everything worked out okay (I didn’t peek because it’s a Love Inspired story, but still!). And while I had my suspicions as to Harper’s parental search, I was on pins and needles to know how it would all work out.

I’m so happy I have the paperback of all five books because one of these long weekends, I want to read the whole series back-to-back and just enjoy being in Widow’s Peek Creek. I’m sad to leave the small town, but I can’t wait to see what Ms. Dietze has in store next!

  3. I’m finishing up In the Shadow of a Queen by Heather B. Moore. It’s a really good book!
    “The day had begun early with masses of people arriving at the Windsor Castle grounds. From [Louise’s] window’s viewpoint, the crowds extended as far as she could see.”
    I hope you have a great weekend!
