Summary

Summary

Beloved bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray concludes her Amish Brides of Pinecraft series with a story of forgiveness and trusting your heart...just in time for Christmas.

When Beverly Overholt's beloved Orange Blossom Inn is broken into, she's shaken to her core. After all, the inn has been her whole life since her fiancé left her for her best friend. In the face of repairing what's been lost, Beverly calls Eric Wagler, the inn's handsome owner. To her surprise, he promises to be on the next flight out to Sarasota. Beverly's been closed off to love for years, but with Eric, she can't help seeing a glimmer of hope--even if they're from different worlds.

From the moment Eric met Beverly, he's tried to fight his attraction to her. Though now Mennonite, Beverly was raised Amish, but Eric grew up in Philadelphia and got into his fair share of trouble as a young man. Though he's worked to overcome his earlier mistakes, with Beverly's security scare, Eric's sure she's not going to want anything more to do with him. And considering how he might just want a future with her...that's a tough pill to swallow.

But as Beverly and Eric put the inn back together, prepare for Christmas, and even witness a new love blossoming for another couple, the trust...and love...between them grows. Will Christmas bring a second chance at love for Beverly? And if it does, will she be brave enough to take it?

Library Journal Review

Mennonite Beverly Overholt is a bundle of nerves when she finds the Orange Blossom Inn has been broken into and robbed. The Florida accommodation has been her home and workplace for the past few years, and never before has she felt so violated and alone. With the help of Eric, the Inn's owner and her new friend, she seeks to repair and restore peace to the property before the first guests arrive for the holidays. Working through their troubles together, Beverly and Eric soon walk a path neither one foresaw. Finding a way to merge his English ways with her conservative beliefs may be the answer to all their problems. VERDICT The beloved author ("Days of Redemption" series) of numerous Amish novels offers a sweet Christmas romance that has been written with exquisite skill. Readers of Amy Clipston, Marta Perry, and Beth Wiseman will certainly get caught up in the excitement of this story. © Copyright 2015.
