A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn: Amish Brides of Pinecraft, Book Three by Shelley Shepard Gray

Emma is alone.  Her husband died three years but with three young girls, she's kept busy.  If only she didn't feel so lonely...

Avon Inspire and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 15th, so you can grab a copy then.

Frankie is a beagle.  He really has a thing for pizza so when he comes up missing from the yard, the family heads out to find him.  It seems he's up at the Inn where some visitors have had the gall to order pizza without him.  Poor Emma.  Here she meets this good looking man and his boys right after Frankie has vandalized their pizza.  What a great way to get introduced!

His name is Jay and he's a widower.  When they both find they are single parents now and can talk about how they feel after the death of a spouse with the other person understanding, a friendship blooms.  Unfortunately, her family is not very happy with that.  They think that she should maintain her widowhood as a tribute to her dead husband.

While the adults aren't sure how to act around each other, Ben has found a girl he's interested in.  She works at the Inn part-time and they begin dating.  As in most of Ms. Gray's books, her characters get lots of advice from those around them.  Some is good, some causes some rifts in relationships, and it takes a bit to get things back on track.

Ben and Tricia get married, Frankie attacks the cake, and Emma and her girls go home in disgrace.  Not to worry, though.  Jay follows her...

Ms. Gray writes good Amish romances.  The plot line is simple but there's love tucked in around the edges.  It's always a pleasure to read her work.
