She has done it again....FANTASTIC! I have not read a book this good in a long time. This book made me smile, laugh, and tear up. If you are looking for a good read...this will do it. There is great information about mental illness.

Can a Secret keep you from staying with the one you love?

Lance Kingston a successful magazine executive has it all,Everything but the women of his dreams.Refusing to settle for less he stops looking until he meets Tia. Tia is a women all about her business.Burying her self in tons of work keeps her busy so a love life in not even on her mind.When Lance And Tia bump into each other he feels like he just have to have her and nothing will stop him from getting her.Tia agrees to a date but deep down she knows that the secret she is keeping can run any man away that ever meets, but once she gets to know lance their life just take off.Once Lance finds out the secret will he be able to handle all that comes with it or walk away from his true love?

Hats off to ReShonda!!!!!! This was my first story by her and I must say that I really enjoyed it.The message in this story was great and very informative.The characters grab you straight in. You can feel every emotion that they are going through. At moments I was laughing and then turning around crying.Cant wait to read more from this author.

This starts out as a sweet love story about a man, Lance, who has been hurt by a woman, Crystal, then finds another woman, Tia, and falls madly in love. But we know that this author doesn't do a typical love story, so throw in some interesting inlaws and an unusual family issue that Tia is determined to keep under wraps, and you have the makings of an emotion packed journey.

The characters are real...so believable that at one point I forgot I was reading a story, and got mad at the main character and tried to help her out. I laughed, got teary-eyed and thoroughly involved in this story about how true love endures, and true love stays through better and through worse, through sickness and through health... Yes, I highly recommend this book...it's ReShonda at her best.

As soon as "The Secret She Kept" arrived, I cleared my calendar and started reading. Mental illness is a tough subject to write about but RTB, with her usual sharp wit and purposeful style hit it on all cylinders. The reader will gain an understanding of bi-polar disorder along with how families deal with the issue with positive and negative impacts. I loved the story, the point of view of the husband, and the way she exposed the many myths about mental illness that we have all grown up hearing. Thank you, ReShonda, for illuminating this subject.
