THE FIVE YEAR BABY SECRET by Liz Fielding is a sweet and gentle romance. Fleur and Matt are excellent lead characters that the reader gets to watch grow as individuals. They each learn that love and forgiveness go hand in hand and to truly be happy they have to put aside their individual wants and do what is best for all involved. I enjoyed this story and I recommend this book to everyone that enjoys reading sweet and tender romances.
