The Wedding Quilt Bride ARC Review

The Wedding Quilt Bride (Brides of Lost Creek #2)Rebecca Mast has returned to the Amish community with her son LIge after her husband passed away in a tragic accident with a horse. She hopes to be able to start over, but she finds herself in dire financial straits and doesn’t know how she is going to find her way out of the red. She meets her old friend Daniel, and he is willing to help her out, but she doesn’t want to accept charity> When some strange quirks about her son are discovered, the truth about her former relationship comes out. Will she be able to open up to her friends, family, and Daniel to accept their help? Will Daniel be able to get over his fear of people leaving to help Rebecca and her son through their emotional troubles?

Even though this book was supposed to focus more on the romance, I felt myself focusing on the relationship between Rebecca and her neighbors more. It was really interesting to see the women in the quilting circle get together to help each other out, even though they might not have all seemed that welcoming at the very start of the novel. I wanted to see Rebecca let these women in to be her emotional support as she rebuilt her life from the ground up and started her own business.

I also don’t read that many Amish romance stories, so I was shocked, to say the least, when I saw the random German (I’m assuming) words thrown in throughout the story. This wasn’t a bad thing, and I eventually caught on to what each word meant. It just gave the book a bit more flavor and context. The setting itself was calm, in a simple farm town where people lived in houses without electricity. The Amish people did not completely cut themselves off from the outside world though, because the quilting club included both Amish and non-Amish women.

The character development is also immense. Rebecca doesn’t trust anyone after her last marriage, and so opening herself to Daniel took a long time. Also, Daniel had been hurt by family members in his life, so he didn’t know how to be open either. Both of them had a lot to learn, and not just about themselves. With some of the events that occurred in this book, they had to learn how to be open and help others around them in their own situations.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a new sweet and clean romance novel about adults finding themselves and learning about each other.

I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley and this is my voluntary review.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

TBR Tuesday!

TBR Tuesday is something that I am starting. I liked to do Top Ten Tuesdays, but they would usually end up with me searching for books that I had never read. I might still do them from time to time, but I would much rather combine my WWW Wednesday post and Top Ten Tuesday post into a different type of update post.

What is TBR Tuesday? TBR stands for To Be Read, and To Be Reviewed. I currently have a lot of books that I have read, but haven’t gotten the chance to review. This will give you all the chance to see what is coming up in future days!

Love Forbidden (Abberant, #1)Benjamin Forrest and the School at the End of the World (Endinfinium Book 1)

So this is the majority of my TBR. The only reason why I put all of these on here is that I have actually started reading the majority of these, so I am going to be done with 90% of them by the end of this week. They are all pretty short and pretty interesting so it won’t be that much of a burden for me. There are also some review copies sent directly from authors that I want to get through, so I will be working on those and spotlighting them next week. I have a lot on my plate, but I was being serious when I said that I wanted to start the next school year with a clean slate book-wise.

Don’t think that I won’t be reading non-review copies during this time though! I still hope to maybe have the chance to get through the rest of the Harry Potter series sometime this summer. I am currently struggling to get through Goblet of Fire, it honestly feels like the longest book in the entire series. I know it’s not even close to being the longest one.

To Be Reviewed

Divided (Enlightened Book 2)Autumn's Doctor (Daughters of Samuel Fox Book 3)

Harry Moon: Professor Einstone (doesn’t have a cover yet!)

I thought that I had more books to be reviewed, but I actually have a few scheduled for this week as I worked through the stack on the weekend! These are the only three books that don’t have any kind of in-progress review. Oh, and I also have some reviews on the Online Book Club that I never got around to promoting on here so I will be doing that as well throughout the week. They just don’t count because the reviews are already completed.

I also have some reviews coming up soon on Online Book Club, so keep an eye out on my review page here.

Thanks for reading through!
