Blog Tour and Giveaway for Love Inspired Series

Feel comforted and at peace when you read these uplifting romances of faith, forgiveness and hope from Love Inspired. There are 12 new books each month! Six from Love Inspired for those who love contemporary romance and six from Love Inspired Suspense who like some danger with their romance stories.

I received four books as part of the Love Inspired blog tour.  One I'm still in the middle of reading, and two others are on my TBR list.  A Love Inspired book that I did read and enjoy is The Wedding Quilt Bride by Marta Perry.

Book Synopsis:

Widowed single mom, Rebecca Mast, returns to her Amish community hoping to open a quilt shop. She accepts carpenter Daniel King's offer of assistance---but she isn't prepared for the bond he forms with her son. Will getting closer expose her secret---or reveal the love she has in her heart for her long-ago friend?

My Review:

Books, fiction or non-fiction, that involve the Amish always fascinate me.  In most of the books, the Amish have the same interest in love as we do, but they're more careful and guarded.  The Wedding Quilt Bride can be read as a stand-alone but is the second book in the Brides of Lost Creek series.  Knowing that, I will more than likely read that book as well.

The story tells of Rebecca who returns back to home after her husband passes away.  Her young son becomes quite introverted after the death.  Once home, Rebecca stumbles upon an old friend, Daniel.  He offers to help her but Rebecca is stubborn and is resolved that it's up to her to make it on her own and help her son.

Both Daniel and Rebecca have their own guilt and shame.  Her husband had been abusive and Daniel's brother left the Amish community.  Both live with those scars.  It takes humility and support for them to get past all of that.  Once they are able to, they focus on Rebecca's son.  Rebecca and Daniel are then able to discover new love with each other.

The story plot is somewhat predictable but that doesn't take away from the excellent writing style.  The characters were easy to imagine as being real and relatable.  I enjoyed this book and its overall frame of learning to love and trust again.
