Love Unexpected by Jody Hedlund

Goodreads | Amazon
What is the secret that could shipwreck both of their lives?

All Emma Chambers ever wanted was a home, but when her steamboat sinks just outside Presque Isle, she's left destitute and with no place to stay.

An unlikely solution arises when the lighthouse keeper arrives in town. He's just lost his wife and is having a difficult time caring for his child. So a traveling preacher gets the idea that the keeper and Emma might be the answer to each other's dilemma. After a hasty marriage, she finds herself heading to the lighthouse with this handsome but quiet stranger. Nothing in her aimless life, though, has prepared her for parenting a rambunctious toddler, as well as managing a household.

Emma soon suspects Patrick may be hiding something from her, and then she hears a disturbing rumor about the circumstances surrounding his late wife's death. It seems as if her wish for a home and family of her own could end up leading her once more into turbulent waters.

When I read Captured by Love, I fell in love with Jody Hedlund’s writing and storytelling and had high hopes for enjoying her newest novel, Love Unexpected. Luckily for me, this novel contains everything I loved about the other one. With a great, action-filled historical setting involving pirates and lighthouses, well-developed and engaging characters and well-paced, sweet romance, I can’t think of a single aspect I did not enjoy about Love Unexpected. I would certainly recommend it for fans of historical romance. It’s well-worth a read.

Thanks to Bethany House and NetGalley, I received a copy of Love Unexpected and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
