Three things drove me to pick up this novel. The first was that it was written by Wanda Brunstetter and I have really enjoyed everything I have read by her. The second is that the cover is very eye-appealing. With it’s bright colors and perfect setting, it definitely depicted some of the important scenes in the story. The third is that I truly liked The Lopsided Christmas Cake, so I knew I would like this sequel.
Elma is a woman that actually inspired me. She is a hard-working girl who doesn’t let herself sit in her pity over not having a spouse or a family. She pours herself into working at her shop and helping her sister as she transitions into motherhood. She really doesn’t think it’s possible for her to find a husband because she can’t move anywhere that’s not near her twin sister.
I was torn completely with Delbert and Ben. I couldn’t decide who I wanted to end up together until the end. I was definitely pleased with the ending! I appreciated that the story didn’t make either one out to be a bad choice. It has been a while since I actually couldn’t decide on who would be the best one to choose.
I’m looking forward to the next book that is coming out by Wanda Brunstetter. I’m thankful I don’t have to wait long to read another gem by her!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
