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?

Another sweet read! Shelley fills this story with not one, but two love stories [three if one counts just yet ;) ]! It was great to return to Pinecraft and the Orange Blossom Inn! Tricia get's her turn in this one as well as a few new characters! I LOVED the addition of a troublesome beagle and the kids are sweet and lovable! New beginnings and wonderful lessons are within this story! Lessons of God's love and plans and a wonderful reminder that He cares about our hopes and dreams! I laughed so hard at some scenes and other's left me in anticipation for the next and final book! I can't wait to see how Shelley wraps this whole journey up! I've been hoping for certain things to come about and with the way she has set her characters in place throughout these books I'm hoping for a great finale! :)
