Lindsey Brooks writes a syndicated lovelorn advice column that makes her quite popular. She loves to shop and seems to have things going right for her until her fiancé drops a bombshell her way.
Rob Colter has a past he would like to keep secret until Lindsey arrives. Everything was going well in his life, staying away from any stirring relationships until she had to wake something in his heart.
Lindsey had prepared a great dinner for two and was even wearing nothing but her apron when fiancé, Garrett, informs he does not wish to marry her. She cannot believe he is dumping her. Needing an escape, she heads to Moose Falls, Montana, trying to get close to the place her dear aunt once lived. She recalls how Aunt Millie desperately wanted her to come and rent canoes. Of course, Aunt Millie died before Lindsey could fulfill her wish. She meets Carla, a female bartender when she stops in to have a drink, and Carla learns Lindsey writes the advice column. Lindsey feels comfortable talking to her. Then she meets Rob who happens to have her aunt’s place and canoe rentals. Different than night and day, the more they are in contact; it does not take long for the heat to rise which could prove quite dangerous which secrets arise that Rob wishes to remain buried.
Letters to a Secret Love is a splendid read with some great turn of events that keep the excitement going. With a great cast of characters and wonderful dialogue this story moves at a nice pace not to lose the audience. The passion spills from the pages. Sensual, hot, sexy, and Lindsey parading around in just an apron, opens up a nice trend that might work for many couples in or out of the kitchen. Toni Blake creates a steamy, and tantalizing delicious romance not to be missed. I was deeply touched by this story that creates lessons not easily forgotten and captivating characters that come alive.
