Litfuse Review: The Proposal at Siesta Key by:Shelley Shepard Gray

The Proposal at Siesta Key (Amish Brides of Pinecraft, #2)
About the Book:
A young Amish woman, yearning for freedom, crosses paths with a handsome Mennonite celebrity in a deeply moving tale of friendship and self-discovery—the second installment in the unforgettable New York Times bestselling author’s new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.
Penny Troyer rarely disobeys her parents. In the years since her sister’s tragic death, they’ve wanted nothing more than to keep her safe…even if it means never leaving the house.
But tonight, she’s bending the rules because Michael Knoxx, the most famous member of The Knoxx Family Singers, a traveling Mennonite Evangelical family —is scheduled to speak. Penny has heard of Michael—how he lost part of his leg in a terrible accident and uses the experience to inspire others—and knows she must meet him. So, for the first time ever, Penny stands up to her parents and goes out on her own. 
Though he speaks about living life to the fullest, Michael knows he needs to take his own advice. Life on the road is grueling and Michael wants to slow down, to rest…to perhaps meet someone who sees him as a man, not just a celebrity. So when a twist of fate allows him the chance to stay a little longer in Pinecraft, Michael knows God is showing him a new path, especially when he discovers how much he and Penny Troyer have in common.
But new friendships can’t stop time. Soon, Michael’s time in Pinecraft will be over and he’ll be back on the road. Her time with Michael has brought her happiness, but will she be able to follow her heart? Or will she be faced with the one thing she’s sure she’ll never have the courage to do? 

My Review:
 Well you never have to wonder what it's like in Pinecraft, Florida especially if you are reading the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series by the formidable Shelley Shepard Gray. She can take something that you could never imagine that would be interesting and make a story out of it for all of her fans. The Proposal at siesta Key is book two in the series and it is a show stopper. Complete with a scrumptious recipe in the back of the book, you will have tons to look forward to.

 Penny doesn't want to disobey her parents or their rules, but sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do, and this has turned out to be one of those times. She wants to go and here about Michael Knoxx. He is a speaker that poses to add something to her life, as he himself lost part of his leg in an accident. So taking off against their wishes is what she feels she will have to do.

 Take off she does, but after meeting this young man, she feels closer to him than she should and it seems his feelings are returned. What will they do with this romance that has suddenly befallen them, all of a sudden?
