Five-Book Giveaway from Shelley Shepard Gray

About the book:

The Promise of Palm Grove

Leona must decide: Does she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?

A young Amish woman finds herself torn between the man she's pledged to wed and the man her heart desires in this heartwarming story of chance, duty, and choice in the face of love---the first volume in the beloved New York Times bestselling author's new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.

Amish bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be in Florida, on a mini-vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she's happy because she's away from the stress of wedding planning. They have no idea that Leona's real joy is in being away from her fiancé.

Edmund is a good man, and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. Her cousins are sure Edmund is the right man for her---and their certainty makes Leona begin to doubt herself. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kauffman, Leona's faced with two vastly different futures.

My Thoughts:
Sometimes you just have a feeling about a book, this was one of those books. From the description and cover I knew I was going to enjoy this story and I was right. I love the wonderful descriptions of Pinecraft, I want to go for a visit now. I nearly stood up on my chair and cheered for Leona, she was so strong. I know in life we often do things that make us unhappy, but I was happy to see how she handled the decisions in her life. I also loved Mattie, I could picture her in my mind, with the vivid description given of her, and I hope we get to hear her story sometimes too. Overall a wonderful story, definitely a keeper. 4.5 stars from this reviewer.
