Today I am reviewing A Christmas Bride in Pinecraft, the fourth book of the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series by Shelley Shepard Gray.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Christmas has come to Pinecraft in bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s final Amish Brides of Pinecraft novel, an uplifting story that proves anything is possible when you follow your heart
When manager Beverly Overholt’s beloved Orange Blossom Inn is broken into, she’s shaken to the core. The inn has been her whole life since arriving in the quaint Amish vacation town of Pinecraft, Florida. Hoping to repair what’s been lost, Beverly calls Eric Wagler, the inn’s handsome owner. To her surprise, he promises to be on the next flight out of Philadelphia.
Ever since her fiancé jilted her, Beverly’s been closed off to love. However, with Eric things feel different. She can’t help but be hopeful that their work relationship will turn into something more—even though they are from different worlds. She grew up Amish and is now Mennonite. Eric, on the other hand, grew up on the city streets of Philadelphia. How could they ever find common ground?
But as Beverly and Eric put the inn back together, prepare for Christmas, and even witness romance blossoming for another couple, the trust—and love—between them grows. Will Christmas bring a second chance for Beverly? And if it does, will she be brave enough to take it?
I love this final story. . . and how Shelley completes the series in such a productive, satisfying way. Oh yeah, I was over-the-top by the end!
Thank you, Shelley!
In The Promise of Palm Grove, you met Beverly Overholt, who runs the inn, and receives some disturbing news from Eric Wagler. In the sequel, The Proposal at Siesta Key, Beverly hears from Eric again, as well as several other unexpected guests. In this final story, A Christmas Bride in Pinecraft, Beverly has trouble adjusting to being at the inn after a break-in. Will Eric be able to convince her to stay? I think Shelley handled everything perfectly, bringing everyone together at the end.
Don’t miss this amazing series!
God bless you!
