Litfuse Review: A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn by:Shelley Shepard Gray

A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn (Amish Brides of Pinecraft, #3)
About the Book:
In the third book in New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray's Amish Brides of Pinecraft series, 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?

My Review:
 Emma knows real heartbreak. When she and her daughters lost her Sanford their world changed dramatically overnight. what is a young woman to do when her whole life changes in an instant?

Jay a young widower knows her plight all too well. He too, lost his spouse.

Both of these individuals go on with their lives no matter how lonely it may seem. When in their hearts that start to miss love and all that goes with it.

Emma and Jay befriend each other as they have a lot in common. When Emma's extended family catches wind of their friendship they show marked disgust and disapproval. They really believe Emma should mourn her late husband until the end of her own life.

Soon Jay's oldest son gets engaged and both families help with wedding prep and this prepares these two families for what will hopefully be A wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn.

This being the third installment in the Amish Brides of Pinecraft was simply the icing on the cake. The book was full of hope and promise and it was a sweet story of two families coming together. I loved it!
