A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn
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 ON THIS BOOK
A mischievous dog named Friankie and two Amish people who have lost their mates, makes for an interesting story. Jay and Emma were living separate lives, that is until Frankie brought them together. Thus the attraction began between the two. But what would people think, and especially her family, if Emma shows interest in another guy?
Another wonderful read from author Shelley Shepard Gray. I love the little Pinecraft community and the friends I have made there. The characters are so well developed, they seem like real family. And Jay and Emma and their ‘Brady Bunch’ family is a heartwarming story that will stay with you for a while! Pinecraft, Florida and the Orange Blossom Inn will have you coming back for more. I cant wait until the next book hits the shelves!
