Buried Secrets by Barbara Cameron Blog Tour and Giveaway

This novel is a gentle read, reflecting the general lifestyle of Amish people. Cameron offers a good romance with a bit of mystery included. While there is a slight twist to the plot, there are no surprises as readers are given plenty of hints along the way.

I liked the characters. They are pretty well crafted. My favorite was Daniel, son of widowed Rose. He is a sweet boy with boundless energy. I liked Luke too. His love for Rose was so selfless and patient.

I was not familiar with the meaning of the cardinal, the one that seemed to watch over Rose and Daniel. That the bird could somehow represent the presence of a loved one who had died seemed a little odd. I did learn some about other Amish ideas, however.

I do recommend this novel to readers who like Amish romance. The end was abrupt and for me, unsatisfactory and just too easy. Other than that and the cardinal idea, a good novel.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
