PICT Review: Her Secret by Shelley Shepard Gray

Excerpt CHAPTER 2 Someone was coming. After reeling in his line, Isaac Troyer set his pole on the bank next to Spot, his Australian shepherd, and turned in the direction of the noise. He wasn’t worried about encountering a stranger as much as curious to know who would walk through the woods while managing to disturb every tree branch, twig, and bird in their midst.

He was just wondering… Read more »
