While I got bogged down in the middle of the first book set in fictional Loving, Loving Treasures, I sped through this second book. Another quick, pleasant "fluffy" read. Second in a series; sequels include Loving Ways, Loving Care, Loving Promises, Loving Feelings, and Loving Tenderness.

"Thou shalt not marry!"
Esther Downing heard her father make this decree to her little sister, forbidding her to marry until the eldest, meaning Esther, found herself a husband. Trouble was, Esther was afraid of her own shadow and loved her solitary librarian life. But everything changed when he came along.
Resort manager Ian Barry was on a mission of love. Sure, he was shyer than a kindergartner on his first day of school, but beautiful and taciturn Esther took his breath away. With repeated stops at the library, payment for overdue books and fervent prayer, Ian hoped she'd see how much he wanted to give her, the least of which was his heart on a platter!

I enjoyed the book, although it did seem to me to be more than a bit old-fashioned. Who would think that in the modern world (and this is set at a time that has the internet and computer searches), anyone would interpret that old Biblical command to honor one's parents to mean obedience? Even in adulthood? Esther's problem is that her sister and her (secret) fiance are trying to play matchmaker, so that they can get married. I can understand why she finds this embarrassing.
