When Hattie Finds Love (Paradise Valley #4) by Amy Lillard


 Hattie Schrock’s lively optimism makes her the Widows Club’s most outgoing member. The circle has helped her through widowhood—and in building a thriving popcorn shop with her cousin. So when Elsie bets Hattie that she can’t help Paradise Valley’s most cantankerous man learn to be happier, Hattie tackles the challenge head-on. But what can she do when she finds Christian Beachy is far more complicated—and appealing—than she thought?
 
Christian lives his faith through hard work, supporting his overbearing sister, and growing the Valley’s best vegetables. After all, a good Amish man should be dedicated to duty. Yet suddenly, Hattie’s warm-hearted attentions and knack for unexpected adventures is showing him life can be so much more—especially if Hattie can share it with him. But when he discovers her wager, can she and the Widows Club ever convince him that her growing love is the real thing—and that risking together forever will be the sweetest, most fulfilling chance of all?

About The Author


 

Amy loves nothing more than a good book. Except for her family...and maybe homemade tacos...and nail polish. But reading and writing are definitely high on the list.

When she's not creating quirky characters and happy endings, she's chauffeuring her prodigy to guitar lessons, orchestra concerts and baseball practice. She has a variety of hobbies, but her favorite is whatever gets her out of housework.

Amy also writes contemporary romances under the pen name Amie Louellen.

My Review


 This is a story of second chances and more than one, but it is also a story a story of seasoned citizens finding happiness and a companion.

What starts out as an innocent bet, get grumpy Christian to smile and I'll wash the copper vats, and it is not a fun job at the popcorn shop, all that sticky sugar!

How could anything go wrong, surely outgoing Hattie can get a quick smile, and so a journey of lunches, ice cream, and of course whoopie pies.

I loved this page turner, and be aware this one will make you hungry, there is a lot to do with food, and maybe a few laugh out loud moments, along with some sweet romance!

I really enjoyed the epilogue!

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