A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn by Shelley Shepard Gray

About the Book
In the third book of New York Times-bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray's Amish Brides of Pinecraft series, 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?

The delightful A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn is the third book in Shelley Shepard Gray’s Amish Brides of Pinecraft series, following The Promise of Palm Grove and The Proposal at Siesta Key. This novel focuses on two different romances - the second chance at true love for widow Emma Keim and widower Jay Hilty and the whirlwind romance between Jay’s eldest son, Ben, and the Orange Blossom Inn’s manager’s niece, Tricia. With plenty of humorous and heartwarming Brady-Bunch-esque moments, A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn tells a sweet story of overcoming the obstacles of the past and embracing new opportunities for love and happiness. Fans of the series won’t be disappointed with this third novel. It’s a quick and entertaining read that left me eager for the fourth one, A Christmas Bride in Pinecraft.
