A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn Review

My Thoughts:
This book starts and ends with a gluttonous hound named Frankie. A pizza loving, wedding cake loving Beagle. He really can't seem to help himself. Emma is about to get fed up with chasing him down when he is on the hunt for food. However her chase leads her right to the Hilty family, staying at the Orange Blossom Inn. A young widow and a handsome widower, what isn't to love about this story. We know there is a wedding, and Emma and her girls find themselves right in the middle of the preparations. A great story that will make you laugh and cry. I can't wait for the next book. I am so ready for more story from Beverly. I was a bit perplexed about Emma's parents view of her courting again. It just didn't seem to follow the "Amish" pattern about widows remarrying. 4 stars from this reviewer. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.

About the book: 
A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn
 (Avon Inspire, September 2015)

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?
