The Secret Life of Sarah HollenbeckThe Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was an ‘ok’ read. Being Christian Fiction, there’s nothing graphic or shocking in terms of the relationship between Sarah and Ben or the language used in the book. It was cleanly written and well edited but it felt preachy, both about writing Christian Fiction and relationships. There were a lot of plot gaps that left so much unexplained or just left it feeling too pieced together in order for the story to fit. While it did have a few funny moments, it wasn’t enough to bring the book up from an ok read. I did like that although the characters have that insta-love that I dislike, they didn’t immediately head to the bedroom. Still, I feel less picky readers, or those who prefer to avoid serious relationship reads, may enough the lighter read. I received an ARC through Revell in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion, which is my own and belongs to me.
