The Promise of Palm Grove by Shelley Shepard Gray

About the book:

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 fiancé.

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 Take: One of my go to authors when I am in the mood to read about the Amish is Shelley Shepard Gray.  She has started a new series that takes you to a place that I haven't read about much in all my reading of amish fiction Pinecraft Fla.  I have heard about this place in Florida where the Amish and Mennonite go for vacation so I was eager to read this book. Shelley has once again filled her story with characters that you will like and maybe even some you might not like.  She has also filled it with situations that everyone can relate to, once again showing us that the Amish aren't really so much different from us.  I enjoyed reading about this new location and learning alittle more about it.  I look forward to the next book in the series. 

I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
