When you first meet Jonathan Masters, you really aren’t sure if you should love how dedicated he is towards his job or be mad because he is trying to buy out Laura’s beloved Inn. Then you realize that Laura doesn’t have a clue that her mother is the reason that he is there to buy the Inn in the first place so you give him a break and wonder why her mother would do such a thing. Meghann does such a good job weaving these characters together and relaying their story that before you know it, you are on the next to last page and wishing the book was just a little longer. If you like books with characters who seem genuine and real, then you’ll love this book.
“The Trouble with Love” by Toni Shiloh is the first of three books in her “Faith and Fortune” series. This book does a great job of helping people to realize that we are all in need of Jesus even those who think they have so much due to riches and fame. Toni does an excellent job of bringing her characters and their world to life. You will find yourself rooting for everyone in this book. And I will also say that this book definitely leaves you wanting to read the next one in the series.
This is my first book by Betsy St. Amant and I was hooked after just the first chapter. Don’t worry I am not going to give away a lot about the book because then you would not be able to experience the joy of reading it in the same way but I will just say that one thing that Betsy mentions in that first chapter reminded me of a movie called The Princess Diaries. Also, there is one part of the story that I can definitely say tells me if you loved Courtney Walsh’s Paper Hearts book then you will love this one too. Betsy does such an amazing job of describing things that I can picture myself sitting right there inside Pastry Puff and drinking a cup of coffee while eating a really great macaroon! Even if for some reason you are not drawn in just by looking at the gorgeous cover of this book I still ask that if you like romance books with a little bit of comedy thrown in that you give this book a chance. I just don’t believe you’ll regret it if you do.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in order to give an honest review.
