Jackie Donavon is turning 30 and has yet to see her life dreams even begin to unfold. One is to marry a wonderful man and the other is to own the town bed and breakfast that holds so many happy memories of her childhood.

She trudges along at her job as a reporter for a local publication, highlighting local businesses for tourist. She shares an apartment with her widowed childhood friend, Minnie and Minnies 4 year old son. In addition to Minnies grief over the loss of her husband she is also dealing with the decline of her much loved mother. Jackie is always there support as best she can and helping with her son.

Working and going on horrible blind dates her relatives continually set up for her seems to be her lot in life.

Suddenly the tide seems to shift when she meets handsome and wealthy Davis Erickson. It seems all her prayers are going to be answered, but are they? Amy learns that things are not always as they seem.

I very much enjoyed this book. I like books that I can become immersed in the characters. I felt a part of her warm, loving and supportive family. It was as if I knew each one personally, their quirks, faults, and positive attributes.

The book had many surprises along the way, pleasantly interwoven throughout the story. The book was a reminder to me of how God is always working in our lives whether we see it not. Jackie made me think of myself when I try to second guess God and look for my plans to unfold instead of letting Him write my script. It also brought to mind the many times answered prayer was right in front of me but I couldnt see it because I was looking in the wrong places. While things may not always work out the way I planned, God will take care of everything in His way and His time.

I was delighted to see at the end of the book were some very special family recipes that were mentioned throughout the story. As I read I thought, I wish there was a recipe for that! A very nice touch to an already excellent book!

In exchange for my honest review, I received a copy of the book from Bethany House Publishers.
