I am such a fan of Harlequin’s Love Inspired books. I appreciate how a large publisher has a commitment to quality books of faith. These category fiction reads are so nice to cozy up with. And what better place to cozy up than a town committed to creating beautiful weddings for its guests?
In My Opinion…
Welcome back to Matrimony Valley where florist Kelly Nelson is in charge of coordinating the town’s most unique wedding yet. She has a plan…and a plan b, c, and d.
Bruce is still numb after the death of his wife two years ago. But his daughter keeps him going, and in an attempt to spend quality time with her, they arrive in Matrimony Valley a week prior to the wedding in which Bruce is best man and Carly is the flower girl.
Kelly and Bruce rub some raw wounds in each other at first. Kelly is forthright, speaking truth when Bruce is sometimes not ready to hear it. AndBruce is so far buried in his grief, he often doesn’t focus enough on the here and now.
And of the cuteness of each of their daughters!! When put together, it’s double the adorable (and double the trouble).
Allie Pleiter shines a spotlight on the difficulties, challenges, and sorrow that come with losing a spouse too soon while offering glimpses of hope and promise of coming out on the other side of grief.
As the residents of the valley pull together to save a wedding that has every challenge thrown at it, including a winter storm and a persnickety wedding feature writer, two little matchmakers set their sights on making their parents happy. With all of that help, Bruce and Kelly just might discover that God is indeed the God of second chances.
I receive complimentary books from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including NetGalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
