A Season of Change (Amish Inn #3) by Beth Wiseman

 


Finding peace means letting go of the past—and embracing the change that is to come. 

Sisters Esther and Lizzie have a new employee, Rose Petersheim, to help them tend to The Peony Inn. But their old matchmaking ways have stayed the same. The sisters focus their efforts on the lovely twenty-five-year-old Rose. Though Rose is witty and outspoken, her nervous chattering makes her the best match for someone calm and good at listening. Someone like Benjamin—the handsome handyman who recently moved to town. 

But when Esther receives an anonymous love letter and flowers, Rose’s love life is no longer the only one capturing the sisters’ attention. As they sleuth around searching for Esther’s secret admirer, they uncover that their grumpy renter, Gus, has a secret of his own that could bring about a difficult change in all their lives. And their continued meddling in Rose’s affairs reveals she, too, is hiding something—an old wound that could threaten her future happiness. 

As Rose, Lizzie, Esther, and Gus struggle to release the weight of their pasts, they discover that although people are complicated, love doesn’t need to be. 

This charming third installment of the Amish Inn series from bestselling author Beth Wiseman is a picture of loss and healing in which forgiveness will prove to be the greatest act of love.

My Review


 

This is my third visit at the Peony Inn, and I love being reunited with old friends. This book does again focus on the sister's Lizzie and Esther, and Rose, aka Rose Petal, our resident helper, cook, and constant talker.

With this installment we are given some sweet, not smooth sailing, romance, a mystery of a secret admirer, and the loss of a loved one.

There are some chuckles, and some heart wrenching revelations, and then finding a way to forgiveness, and as with the other books in this series, I was quickly page turning for answers!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
