Review: Adrianna's Secrets by:Cheryl Colwell

 Adriana's Secrets
About the Book:
An historical, romantic suspense novel, Adriana's Secrets, Book Two in The Secrets of the Montebellis Series, travels back to Lisa Richardson's great-grandmother's time and fills in the exciting stories alluded to in Book One.

Tragedy strikes the mountain town of Mont Castello, the home of Adriana Montebelli. Orphaned in 1888, Adriana's life is swept along at the whim of forceful men who decide where she will live and who she will marry. Instead of breaking her, their cruel deceptions toughen her resolve to take control. Though she rises to manage the vast Van Buren estate, she wonders if her broken heart will have the strength to love again.

Follow Adriana in this historical novel as she navigates the challenges of woman's suffrage, union violence, and the tragic hardships of love and loss, while struggling to cling to her faith.

About the Author:
 Cheryl Colwell began writing fiction in 2007. True to her tagline, "Stunning Suspense," her characters visit stunning locations while they pursue adventurous quests peppered with mystery, suspense, and romance. Passionate about all things creative, Cheryl finds inspiration in the countryside of Ashland, Oregon - the perfect venue for her interests in writing, gardening, and art.

They are delighted to have four unique and talented children and three grandchildren. A smart and playful English Shepherd makes their empty nest a happy place.

My Review:
 Adriana Montebelli lost her parents at the very young age of 7, due to an avalanche during a climbing trek. Adriana and her sister Ladonna were taken in by family friends. The story fast forwards to Adriana as a grown woman who feels that her time for true love has long sense passed, but she is in for a wonderful surprise.

 When a fire destroys the home of someone Adriana loves dearly. Adriana knows the past that she has tried so hard to hide has finally caught up with her. It's hard not to hard things when somany people have let her down so many times.

 Adriana's secret is a beautifully written story full of suspense, love , and page turning action. It will leave your heart beating so fast, you won't know what hit you! I loved Adriana and learning more about her story.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Book Crash.
