A solitary sort, forty-two-year-old Atle Petersheim spends his time hard
at work in his wood shop. But as the days get long, he realizes just
how lonely he’s become. When his longtime crush, Sadie Mast, a widow and
mother of three, asks him to help her build a room in their barn for
her son Cale, Atle can’t say no. Eager to pursue Sadie at last, he turns
to bookmobile librarian Sarah Anne Miller for courting advice. More
than happy to help, Sarah Anne decides the best way to learn about love
is through books—romance novels to be precise.
Between completing holiday orders for her flourishing food business, helping Cale navigate a dramatic new relationship with his boss’s daughter, and coming to terms with the trauma her late husband had inflicted upon her and her children—not to mention Atle showing up at her door with flowers—Sadie is in over her head. Though Atle’s efforts are initially clumsy and his declarations a bit awkward, Sadie can’t help but be charmed by him. He’s patient and kind...and at times even seems to know far more about romance than he’s let on.
About The Author
This is the third book in this sweet series, the Berlin Bookmobile, and we are back with newly married Sarah Anne Miller, and she is still giving her advice!
This is Atle Petersheim’s story and his quest to learn courtship and maybe attract Sadie Mast. We are also with Cale and Hope, and their love beginnings as 16 year olds.
This story does touch on some tough subjects such as abuse, and teenage drinking, and the author does a great job with how they are handled.
Come and watch these two new romances and they have help with Sarah’s advise and a book entitled Finding Love’s Fortune!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Gallery, and was not required to give a positive review.
