Have a defibrillator on hand for this one! Seriously. I'd just let out a woosh of relief, only to find myself sucking in my breath in horror as my eyes scanned the next paragraph! This book is hopping with action and suspense and I loved the mysterious edge to the plot. Suspense and mystery in one book -- what a treat! There's a classical feel to The Secret Heiress as well -- it has the vibes of a New Gothic Romance, a genre made popular in the 60's and 70's by authors like Victoria Holt, Mary S ...more

The secret Heiress had lots of drama, action, some faith, murder mystery, romance & family. It is also a clean read.

The plot Caroline Tully was adopted and found out that she was a Heiress but she had to visit with her Grandfather for a week first. Someone tried to kill her. So she hires a bodyguard to keep her safe. She wants to know where she came from.

The setting is Mississippi out in the country. On a old family home.

I like Caroline. She is strong, has a strong faith, she is ready

"The Secret Heiress" was a wonderful Christian romance suspense novel and I enjoyed reading it very much. It had just the right amount of romance, action, and suspense, and I loved the story line and characters. I also had fun trying to figure out who the bad person was. TSH was fantastic and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys these kinds of books.

I absolutely LOVE Love Inspired Suspense books, and Terri Reed’s The Secret Heiress is a PERFECT addition to the collection! Her writing style is FANTABULOUS and her plot line is captivating, her characters complex. This book hooked me from page one and kept me on the edge of my seat until the last one.

Caroline’s character is awesome. I adored her bravery and her faith that she had. Someone was intent on eliminating her from her biological grandfather’s will. The intensity of that mixed with sus

I started reading this book with the expectation that it would be just like many other inspirational romance books I've read. Was I ever wrong! After the first couple of pages, I couldn’t put the book down. The suspense kept building and I waited to be able to get a clue as to who was causing the problems for our heroine.

I read a lot of mysteries, and even so, I couldn’t predict the next move, or even get a clue as to what would happen

Not bad, but not good either. There was really little character development - the characters had merely be accepted pro forma. And, even worse, the killer's identity was broadcast well ahead of the end of the book, as there was only one character hanging around who was there burt not really integral to the furtherance of the plot.
I loved that Caroline and Don knew each other from an earlier assignment, which helped make their growing attraction more believable. That said, the concern about social status being behind the murders (and attempted murders) felt out of place, even with the primary disagreements occurring 30 years earlier.
This was a fun book to read-I enjoyed getting to know these characters, and while I didn't particularly like the people who turned out to be the villains, I didn't really expect them to be the villains either. I love it when book surprises me. :)
I practically read this book in one night and had tomake myself go sleep !
