A Wedding At The Orange Blossom Inn by Shelley Shepard Gray - Book Blog Tour Stop and Review

About The Book:

A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn

(Avon Inspire, September 2015)

A wedding brings together two young widowed parents . . . and gives them a second chance at love.

Emma Keim was heartbroken when her husband, Sanford, passed away, leaving her to raise three young daughters alone. Though several years have passed, her relatives have made it no secret that they expect Emma to remain a widow, mourning Sanford indefinitely. But when she meets Jay Hilty---a handsome widower with three young sons of his own---Emma is delighted to have a new friend who understands her struggles. Still, she is dismayed that her family is so opposed to their friendship---and the idea of it ever becoming anything more. She honors her husband's memory every day, but is she destined to be alone forever?

Emma's gentleness with Jay's boys stirs something in his heart that's been quiet for far too long. But when his oldest son becomes engaged to a local woman, suddenly Jay, Emma, and their children are swept up in wedding preparations. Witnessing his son's joy, Jay wonders if it's time for him to move forward, too, and find happiness again.

Once again, love has come to Pinecraft. But can these two parties of four become a happy, healthy family of eight?

My Thoughts:

In "A Wedding At The Orange Blossom Inn," her third book in the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series, author Shelley Shepard Gray takes her readers back to the quaint Florida community outside of Sarasota where the Amish folks come to vacation and is the perfect backdrop for this charming romantic story!

It is always a delight to sit down and enjoy Shelley's books, and I have particularly enjoyed this Amish Brides series. Her reoccurring characters are warm and friendly people that you'd love to have as neighbors, and the gentle tales of romance are just lovely.  Shelley is a skilled storyteller and readers will feel pulled into the story as if you are right there as a guest at the Inn.

As the third book there are some back stories that are continued from the previous books, but first-time readers can also enjoy this story and perhaps will go back to pick up on the others!

I highly recommend anything Shelley Shepard Gray writes, and am honored to be able to recommend "A Wedding At The Orange Blossom Inn."  Can't wait for the final book, "A Christmas Bride at Pinecraft" coming soon!
