How sweet it is ....

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens;
but often we look so long at the closed door that
we do not see the one which has been opened for us."
- Helen Keller

Heartache, friendship, forgiveness .... are just some words to describe this touching story called "How Sweet It Is" by Alice Wisler. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars ... definitely living up to it's name! It's about Deena whom is living in Atlanta, GA and moves into her grandfather's cabin in Bryson City, North Carolina after her life crashes (literally). And the best way to turn her life around for the better is by moving.

Once she gets to the town she meets a town of characters from -- a Dr. Seuss-quoting plumber named Jonas (my favorite character in this book), to her crazy aunt Regena Lorraine, to a group of misfit middle school students, and more ... with the cherry on top being a hot social worker named Zack who usually seems to know the perfect thing to say to her.

I really think everyone should read this ... it's a great book of redemption. To find more about this book check out Alice Wisler's website.

Happy 25th Birthday to me today!! =0)

Made the Grade: The Three Sisters Inn Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 643 KB | Release Date: April 1, 2013 | Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense

"Hide in Plain Sight" [The Three Sisters Inn Series, Book 1] by Marta Perry

My Book Summary : Financial expert Andrea is rushing home to Churchville, PA (also known as Amish Country), to help her family and their inn they are trying to start up. She has been against the idea of the inn from the beginning, but with her younger sisters recent hit-and-run accident she has to help out, and being the oldest sister that means she needs to take charge.

However, once she gets there she finds her grandmother loves having her there, wants her to help with the inn as much as she can, but doesn't want Andrea to help with their financial struggles. In addition, she finds out that some people in the community really don't want the inn to be operational and might try to have it so the inn never opens at all costs.

To top it all off Andrea meets Cal, her grandmother's tenant, who is living and works in the renovated barn behind the inn and he's keeping his own secrets....

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! I wasn't expecting to like this book when I started reading it but I was pleasantly surprised! The plot was very well written. Good characters.

Book Teaser :
"There's someone, a man, out on the east side of the house."
"Andrea?" His voice sharpened. "Are you sure?"
"The lightening makes it as bright as day. He's there, watching the house. We didn't put lights---"
They hadn't thought they needed to where there were no outbuildings to be broken into. Maybe the intruder's goal wasn't the outbuildings. Maybe it was the house itself. ~ within Chapter 6

For more information on this book, series and/or any other books by Marta, then please check out her website.

When you find yourself ...

Who knew I would like Amish stories? I certainly didn't, or didn't realize that I would enjoy them as much as I did. But I guess when you look at it if it is a really good romance story and the plot really catches your interest then anything is possible. =0) And that's what I found with "Hidden" (part of the Sisters of the Heart series) by Shelley Shepard Gray.

This is the first story in the Sisters of the Heart series. I'm not sure if I'll read the others anytime soon, but after reading the first chapter the book held my interest and I couldn't put it down. It's an easy read (under 300 pages) about Anna, a woman who really has no direction in life and finds herself in an abusive relationship. After trying to talk to her family and police about her situation, and everyone not believing her, she turns to the last people she can think of her friend Katie's family who are apart of the Amish community in Pennsylvania. They take her in, and she earns her keep while hiding from her abuser and everyone she knows as she thinks her loved ones who inform him of her location. While doing so she grows as a person, gains a special relationship/friendship, and feels happier then she has in a long time. But what will she be able to go back to the life she just left??

It was a very good story ... if you don't mind it being full of detail yet short ... I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I'm not sure if I'll read the other stories in the series but you never know, since I did love the main characters in this book.

To find out more about this book, series, or other of her books ... then check out Shelley Shepard Gray's website.
