The story was set up like it was going to involve some mysterious, dark secret. The plot ends up being rather mundane...maybe this would have worked as an 'immoral' story several decades ago. Compared to the types of beha...more
The main reason I didn't like this book, though, was because of the unrealistic dialogue. Some of the things Chelsea or Brandon say are SO ridiculous and there is NO WAY anyone would ever say that when th...more

Holy Moly that was one bad book.
I was expecting something along the lines of a WW2 intrigue based on quotes like this in the description: “when Chelsea finds her grandmother's WWII diaries, she's stunned to discover that they hold secrets she never suspected . . . and they have the power to turn her own life upside down”.
I never suspected it was a romance! I thought she’d discover her granny was a spy or worked in a secret government department during the war and lead rescues...more

Once in a blue moon you come across an exceptional book that leaves you in awe of just how great the story is and how emotionally connected to it you are. I have found such a treasure in the latest book from Robert Barclay, More Than Words Can Say, and to say if you haven't read it, you'll want to pick this one up and completely set aside some time to get lost in the characters and the story.
The premise of the story takes place at a lakeside cottage tucked away in the Adirondack mountains where...more
This book description sounded good: A young woman (Chelsea) inherits her grandmother's lake cottage -- a cottage that has been boarded up for over 50 years -- as well as all its secrets. So off goes Chelsea to rediscover the cottage in an attempt to learn more about her grandmother. The plot was okay. However, it was pretty predictable & not overly original.
The thing that bothered me the most was the writing style...more

I had really high hopes for this book. I thought the premise of the book was really interesting and thought it was a book that I could really enjoy. After finishing, however, I feel very disappointed with this one. First off, I was reading an uncorrected proof and it was clear to me that there was much editing to be done still. I thought that the writing style was very juvenile and too much of an easy read. I also thought that the way the charact...more
I really liked this book. I've never been to the Adirondacks but would love to visit, especially after reading this book! I liked the idea of having a family secret to discover and found the characters quite enjoyable.
Chelsea inherits her grandmother's cottage that no one but her family has ever been to. Before Chelsea sells the cottage, she receives a mysterious letter at the lawyer's office, from her grandmo...more
