My Review: 
A Secret Encounter" by  J.E.B. Spredemann is book two in the  Amish Secrets series. It was a great story and I loved it but I liked "An Unforgivable Secret" better! "A Secret Encounter is about 2 homeless men who are helped by An Amish woman named Annie.

....SPOILER (Joe and Harvey are two homeless men that Annie has taken to bring food to because of a chance encounter while out with her boyfriend Aaron. From that time on Joe and Annie have a pull toward each other. Aaron is being pressured to get married from his father and he wants Annie because of her looks.

Joe and Harvey are invited to stay in the barn of Annie's grandmother's farm because Harvey becomes sick and Joe tries to help them save the farm but is he really the good guy or is he a thief and a liar as Aaron says.

Joe is an Amish man but he was shunned in his teens! The reason will be explained in later chapters but the reason will have you not agreeing with the Bishop's decision.  These books pull at the reader's heartstrings and you will want to cheer for the heroes who do the right thing.

I had to keep reading to see which version of Joe was the real one, the one he portrayed or the one Aaron tried to make people believed he was!

Joe did have a past but sometimes the past  isn't alway a true account of things!)..END OF SPOILER

I believe any reader that likes a clean love story, yes this book is of the Amish genre but I find it to be more of a love story, will like this story.

Make sure to read the part in the back of the book to find out how this story come to be and how you can help homeless people.

I was given a pdf copy by the author for my honest review and it is receiving five stars!

I am looking forward to reading Book 3 "A Secret of the Heart " .
