I have another lovely historical romance review for you from Bethany House Publishers.
Evelyn Wisely loves working at the local orphanage, but her heart can’t ignore the women of Teaville who are also in need. Her boss is willing to help build a shelter for them, but only if she gains the cooperation and financial support of other local businessmen.
While David Kingsman plans to stay in Teaville just long enough to get his father’s business back on solid ground, he’s intrigued by Evelyn’s cause and finds himself more invested with each passing day.
Will their plans and partnership fall apart when confronted with all that is stacked against them, or can they trust in God’s plan despite it all?
This was such a fun book to read. It took a little time for me to get into it. Once I was, I enjoyed it. It was actually a very relaxing read and I didn’t feel emotionally spent after reading it. Towards the end I felt a little anxiety as I was rooting for Evelyn to succeed. I liked the intrigue that it had. I was curious as to what this big “secret” that Evelyn had was. And I was constantly wondering if she would ever share it with anyone, especially David. When she did I think I really wasn’t expecting what it ended up being. I don’t want to say cause I don’t want to spoil it for you.
I really liked the fact that I didn’t feel as if I was so involved in the story that I felt light-hearted afterwards. Maybe its because I wasn’t emotionally tied to the characters since this is the second book. But I went into it with no expectations and that is honestly the best way to enter in to a new book.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good historical romance and I do look forward to reading the other books in the series. It had enough intrigue to keep me interested but there really wasn’t a lot of extra “drama” which tends to happen sometimes with this genre of story.
It was well written and fun and I think most people who enjoy this type of book will enjoy the story very well.
