KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Compelling readApril 14, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Book Two in the Sisters and Friends series. It reads wonderfully well as a standalone though. And it's pretty unique because the story will have a different kind of impact depending on whether you have read the first book, Change of Heart. That's because Emma has no memory of the months before and immediately after the accident that nearly killed her. So, if you haven't read the first book, you're as clueless as Emma and get to uncover buried secrets right along with her. But, if you have read the first book, you know exactly what happened to Emma and that makes for a very interesting reading perspective since you know more about the main character than she does! Very cool.
Emma is struggling to put her life back together but she's missing some key pieces. While she has the support of her family, she knows they are keeping secrets from her and they treat her as if she's sure to disappoint them. So it's a relief to move to a different community where no one knows her past -- just like her! Even though Lydia can be a bit of an overbearing older sister. (There were times I wanted to shake some sense into her, but I refrained because of her delicate condition.)
Though next door neighbour Samuel intrigues Emma, he makes her nervous too. They have a great first meet scene involving a rambunctious Irish Setter that endeared me to Samuel immediately. :-) A complicated 'non-courtship' ensues as both hero and heroine grapple with letting go of the past in order to reach out towards a future together.
There's plenty of drama -- breath-snatching scenes that left me gobsmacked -- tender ones that left me weak in the knees. And twisty plot turns that kept me reading long after lights out. An excellent addition to the Sisters and Friends series. I can't wait for Book Three's release!

Rhonda Nash-hallMadison Heights VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Surprising twist for amish novelMarch 22, 2017Rhonda Nash-hallMadison Heights VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Boy, does this one have plenty of surprises?!!! This novel threw a really big surprise for me. It was something that I honestly don't think I've ever read about in any Amish books previously. Amish fiction is definitely not new to me. I am an avid reader and Amish fiction is one of my absolute favorites. Rachel J. Good is a new author to me and I am very impressed with this novel. I did not read the first book in the series, but it did not interfere with my enjoyment of the book. I'm sure that reading book one in the series first would add some additional information that would make the story and characters continue on and become like family to the reader.
Emma and Sam were both highly likable characters. I could certainly feel the emotions of both of them. Family dynamics played a large part in the lives of Emma and her family. Emma and her sister, Lydia, have some issues from their past to resolve and these issues keep cropping up in their present day lives. Sam has been hurt by a girl once, and he doesn't care to be hurt like that again.
I highly recommend this book to readers! My star rating on this book is 5!

Christa5 Stars Out Of 5An Excellent Read!March 20, 2017ChristaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Buried Secrets by Rachel J. Good is an excellent read! After a long recovery from an accident, Emma Esh moves in with her sister Lydia, and brother-in-law Caleb. Caleb and Lydia are expecting twins, and Emma is going to help out. While there, Emma meets the neighbors nephew, Sam Troyer. Sam and Emma become friends and start spending time together. Lydia and Caleb discourage any kind of relationship beyond friendship with Sam. Why does it seem that Emmas family knows more about the accident she was then they are telling her? Emma cannot remember the time around the accident, but she knows there are buried secrets in her past that she might now want to learn about. These secrets might forever change her future.
Rachel J. Good does a great job of bringing the characters to life. They experience circumstances that we can all relate to including frustration, hopelessness, faith and love. I highly recommend checking out this fast-paced wonderful story.
