Review: Lilies In Moonlight by Allison Pittman

null Cullen Burnside, a disillusioned and disfigured veteran from the war, lives a drab existence with his mother Betty Ruth who slips further and further into dementia each day. Until Lily Margolis, a delightful and charming “flapper”, literally falls into their lives. After a night of dancing and drinking Lily, dazed and disoriented, twists her ankle and falls into the Burnside’s yard where she is found the next morning. Betty Ruth insists she stay and rest so her ankle can heal but neither Betty Ruth nor Cullen can forsee how easily Lily will worm her way into their hearts. Will Lily and Cullen find the healing and love they both so desperately need?

I absolutely loved this one! With Lily’s charm she will worm her way into your heart too. I kept finding myself turning the pages for more. Allison Pittman is a wonderful writer and I am looking forward to reading more of her work!

Review: Lilly’s Wedding Quilt by Kelly Long

null When Sarah King, the love of Jacob’s life, weds another, Jacob is crushed and knows in his heart he will never love another. Then one day, he finds himself spontaneously agreeing to marry Lilly Lapp. Lilly, the local school teacher, has loved Jacob secretly for most of her life. She agrees to marry Jacob to save both of their reputations but silently prays he can forget Sarah and come to love her instead. Lilly has also felt alone and trapped taking care of her depressed mother ever since her father passed away. Can Jacob finally love again and set Lilly free? Can she help Jacob forget his past love and start a new life? With God at work in their lives, their love soon flourishes and they find that each other is all they will ever need.

This is my first book in the Patch of Heaven series and I have to say I am looking forward to reading the first book in the series as well. The good news is you don’t have to read the first book in order to read this one. Each books stands on it’s own. Kelly Long is a marvelous writer and it shows in the pages of Lilly’s Wedding Quilt. This is my first Amish inspired book as well. At first I thought it a little daunting with the Amish language sprinkled throughout it’s pages but my worries soon faded and I fell in love with the Amish ways. I will definitely be reading more of these in the future!

Review: Plain Proposal by Beth Wiseman

null Miriam Raber has loved Saul Fisher since they were kids. She dreames of a life with Saul. When her friends dare her to go and speak to him, it sends her on a path she never thought she would take. Miriam loves God with her whole heart but will she leave the community to be with Saul?

Saul Fisher has a dream he hopes one day to fulfill. After the loss of his mother and sister he finds himself taking care of his brothers and his father who has taken to drinking his homemade wine. It leaves Saul wondering just what God’s will for him really is. Should he leave the community to fulfill his dreams? Would Miriam go with him if he chose to leave?

This is a book that proves love conquers all. Beth Wiseman has done a fabulous job in the continuing “Daughter’s of the Promise” series. This a book of God and Love and Family where nothing is too big to face when you have all three of these things in your life. The best part is you don’t have to read the previous books in order to read Plain Proposal. I definitely recommend it!

Mr. Darcy Takes The Plunge by J. Marie Croft

null A charming take on Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy Takes the Plunge is a gem. The fun, and puns, begin when Fitwilliam Darcy and his friends decide to take a plunge in a pond on their estate. When a rather wet and disheveled Darcy encounters his sisters and their new friends on the lawn of Pemberley he leaves a lasting impression. Elizabeth Bennet can’t quite get the image of the “Handsome Barbarian” out of her mind. When both families find themselves in London for the Little Season a romance soon develops.

Full of charm and wit, even to the point of being corny at times, I found myself not wanting to put it down. The characters draw you in and leave you wanting more. It was definitely worth reading. A book you’ll want to read again and again. If you like to be entertained, I highly recommend it.
