Five-Book Giveaway from Shelley Shepard Gray

The Promise of Palm Grove (Avon Inspire, January 2015)

Leona must decide: Does she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?

A young Amish woman finds herself torn between the man she’s pledged to wed and the man her heart desires in this heartwarming story of chance, duty, and choice in the face of love—the first volume in the beloved New York Times bestselling author’s new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.
Amish bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be in Florida, on a mini-vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she’s happy because she’s away from the stress of wedding planning. They have no idea that Leona’s real joy is in being away from her fianc√©.
Edmund is a good man, and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. Her cousins are sure Edmund is the right man for her-and their certainty makes Leona begin to doubt herself. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kauffman, Leona’s faced with two vastly different futures.



MY REVIEW-This genre is not my normal pick up. Often I find Amish books to be boring and settled in the same plot as all the rest. But when I read this one here, I was so very pleasantly surprised! Needless to say, the rest of the series is now on my wish list:)

Shelley Gray pens a novel that realistically makes you fell a member of the Pinecraft community. The people you meet along the way are fun but also have their troubles and heartaches. One such person is Leona(love this name by the way!), engaged to be married to Edmund but finds herself falling in love with Zachary. Leona is in town with her two best friends, Mattie and Sarah, on a last vacation before she gets married. Needless to say things get a little turned around!

There were many secondary characters and one of my favorites would have to be Beverly, the innkeeper, who also has fiance problems. Zach's little sister is adorable too. Really sweet! This is a wonderful novel filled with characters that I loved. One of the fun parts of it for me was geographically. I have been in that area, seen the communities there, etc.
