The Gift of Joy (Unexpected Gifts #2) by Kristen McKanagh

 

Life is full of joy when it's least expected in this sweet Amish romance from the author of The Gift of Hope.

Joshua Kanagy’s older brother has left the family gift shop business, which is wonderful gute for Aaron, but not for Joshua. Horses are his talent—raising and training them. But how can Joshua step away from the shop when his parents have already had to give up the dream of leaving their legacy to all three of their sons?

Enter Joy Yoder, a determined, if sometimes misguided, helper who always manages to drag Joshua into her schemes and promises. Only now her focus turns to finding a solution to his problem, partly to distract from her own. Her mamm has her heart set on Joy marrying the minister’s son, and she’s not sure she wants to.

Joy gets the grand idea to propose to Joshua, offering a partnership of convenience rather than love. But as the wedding approaches, Joy starts to develop feelings for Joshua. Is it possible Gotte’s plan for Joy includes faith, friendship, and love?

My Review


 
The title of this book resonates throughout the read, yes it really is a gift of joy!
Now this is the second book in this series, but it can be read alone!
I found myself quick immersed in this story, and had a feeling of loss when the last page was turned, but did love that an epilogue was included!
This is a sweet read to get lost in, and the Author Kristen McKanagh does a wonderful job of leading us in this page turner!
I’ll be looking for more by this author!

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