The House That Love Built: A Blog Tour and Review!

About The Book:

Brooke has only loved one man, her late husband. Owen’s rebuilding after a painful divorce. Can a mysterious house bring them together for a second chance at love?
In the charming town of Smithville, Texas, Brooke Holloway is raising two young children on her own, supporting them by running the family hardware store. The last thing on her mind is falling in love. But she’s intrigued when a stranger moves to town and buys the old Hadley mansion. She’s always heard that house holds a secret—maybe even a treasure—and she can’t wait to see inside. When she meets the new owner and they spend time together, she can’t deny the attraction. Could God be giving her another chance at happiness? Or is she betraying her late husband’s memory by even thinking that way?
Owen Saunders bought the Hadley place to spite his cheating ex-wife. She’d always wanted to restore an old house in Smithville. Now he’s going to do it without her. But if anything needs restoration, it is Owen’s heart. Then he meets Brooke and her kids and finds himself tempted by love. Can he bring himself to trust a woman again?
Throw an eccentric uncle into the mix, along with the town’s teenage troublemaker, and even a finicky cat—and one thing becomes clear: God is bringing them all together for a reason.

My Review:

It's another hit for Beth Wiseman in her most recent novel, The House That Love Built! It is one that will keep you up reading late into the night and cheering on all the characters!

The book is very well-written and I adored the characters, each with their own stories. With many topics discussed like child abuse, death of a loved one, divorce and the themes of family and forgiveness, each person who reads this book will relate in very individual manners. But the overall theme that God takes us from whatever situation we are in and carries us through to be stronger because of it, will ring true for all who read it. 

I got lost in the story with each page read, and was impressed with all the amazing descriptions, making me feel like I was in each scene of the book. A delightful read, perfect to match with a comfy quilt and cup of tea! A perfect feel-good book for gift giving this upcoming Mother's Day!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
