    Very emotional book. Max has come to Brambleberry House for two reasons. First, to make sure that the women who inherited it did so honestly. He was worried that they had taken advantage of his sweet great-aunt. Second, he is recovering from injuries received when his helicopter was shot down in Iraq, and the peace of the Oregon Coast is just what he needs. He arrived at the house under an assumed name so that he could get at the truth with no one the wiser. Anna needs the income from Max's renta Very emotional book. Max has come to Brambleberry House for two reasons. First, to make sure that the women who inherited it did so honestly. He was worried that they had taken advantage of his sweet great-aunt. Second, he is recovering from injuries received when his helicopter was shot down in Iraq, and the peace of the Oregon Coast is just what he needs. He arrived at the house under an assumed name so that he could get at the truth with no one the wiser. Anna needs the income from Max's rental of the top floor apartment. The house is old and seems to be in constant need for repair or maintenance and there is never enough money to do it all. Her first impression of Max is that he's aloof and kind of cold, but she's still attracted to him. She's sworn off men for awhile because she doesn't trust her judgment any longer. She has a failed engagement in her past, then the last man she got involved with was caught embezzling money from her business. She feels it's safer just to stay away from them. But there's something about Max that makes her want to trust him and lean on him. It took me a couple chapters to warm up to Max. He seemed to be far too cynical to be Abigail's nephew. It soon became apparent that his problem was due mostly to his experiences with his selfish mother and the guilt that he felt for not spending more time with his aunt. He was mostly convinced of Anna's innocence within a couple days, though he would occasionally still have moments of doubt. He was also dealing with the disappointment that his aunt hadn't left the house to him. His times with her were the only bright spots in a miserable childhood and now he feels that perhaps he failed to measure up in some way. As he gets to know Anna he starts to feel guilty about his deception, but can't figure out how to tell her the truth without hurting her. I loved the relationship that grew between Anna and Max. Anna senses Max's need to be loved. I loved seeing her give him the kind of care and support that he used to get from Abigail. Meanwhile, Max sees the vulnerable woman under the tough exterior that she shows to the rest of the world. He wants to protect her from all the things that are bringing her down. When the truth about who he is comes out, Anna is heartbroken, and convinced that he hadn't cared for her at all. I really enjoyed the part that the dog Conan played. Throughout the book he seems almost human as it looks like he is trying to help move their relationship along. There is also the feeling that Abigail isn't far away and that she has a hand in the things that are happening between Anna and Max. I loved the ending with the letter that Max has gotten from his aunt and the effect it has on him.

    Another enjoyable book in the Women of Brambleberry House series. Anna was a very stiff character the first time we met her in book one. I think Ms. Thayne did a great job at opening her up so she was a much more dynamic character by the time she got her own book. I thought it was odd that Abigail's nephew wasn't once mentioned in the previous two books, even in passing. I was so confused in the beginning because I thought his real name was Harry, but when chapters were written from his point of v Another enjoyable book in the Women of Brambleberry House series. Anna was a very stiff character the first time we met her in book one. I think Ms. Thayne did a great job at opening her up so she was a much more dynamic character by the time she got her own book. I thought it was odd that Abigail's nephew wasn't once mentioned in the previous two books, even in passing. I was so confused in the beginning because I thought his real name was Harry, but when chapters were written from his point of view, the author would refer to him as Max, and I had ZERO clue who she was talking about. It should have been made more clear to the reader in the very first chapter that Harry was actually Max, Abigail's nephew. I certainly didn't mind the deception in the beginning. It was acceptable to me and I really hoped that he was going to tell her who he was before their personal relationship got deeper. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. I dropped a star because I really didn't like that Max slept with Anna before telling her who he really was. I'm not surprised at all how furious she was when she found out. The sex scene was a surprise as Ms. Thayne usually writes sex-free books. Plus I felt like it was too soon for them to be sleeping together. They'd known each other for all of 5 days or so. Plus he was lying about who he was. I think the impact of Max's betrayal would have been just as devastating if they had of only kissed. The sex scene itself was pretty mild and rather vague. Nothing more descriptive than saying they were naked and that "he entered her." Everything else was all euphemisms and analogies for what they were doing and feeling. They never once spoke about protection or preventing pregnancy. I find this to be unrealistic and something two, unmarried single people would definitely talk about. It had a sweet ending. I liked knowing what happened with the other two couples. I give 4 stars for the entire series.

    Wonderful, wonderful book A Soldier’s Secret, book number 3 in RaeAnne Thayne’s The Women of Brambleberry House, is another winner! This is the beautiful story of Anna and Max, with more otherworldly control by Abigail. It will have you laughing, it will have you crying. A really great read!

    You knew his plan was going explode before you read the story BUT the fun was getting there. It was a heartfelt story while not as emotional the prior, you get a feel for what life does to folks. No cutesy adorable children, but rather adult dealings with adult issues and society repercussions and just everyday issues and their affect. So far, this has been the best of the 3 stories

    Max and Anna's story I just Love this series and the characters. When Max tries to find out why his aunt left Brambleberry to some complete strangers his mother urged him to investigate the possible gold diggers. What he finds could be considered a treasure.

Abigail’s letter to him, and Conan’s interference guided these two lovers towards a HEA. Anna’s case with the con artist also was resolved in her favor. Returning characters and the plot were the cornerstone of this predictable but enjoyable novel. Trust once broken is hard to restore was the theme coursing through this novel. There is no time like the present to tell the truth as the repercussions can be devastating. Conan remains one of my favorite characters. A Summer beach read! 8/31/20- 09/19/20 COVD-19.

    Third story of this series. What a magical love story it is to. It is a short easy read but well worth it & it tells you what happens to Anna & what Abigale had planned for her. It is such an endearing series one you will enjoy reading.
