Joyful: A Blog Tour and Book Review

About The Book:

A young Amish couple gets a second chance at love in New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s final book in her Return to Sugarcreek series.
Randall Beiler is doing his best to put his family and the farm’s needs first, even forsaking love. But though he tries, Randall knows he needs help caring for his younger siblings and keeping the house together.
When his brother offers pretty Elizabeth Nolt a job taking care of the house and cooking for the family, Randall is furious—and guilty about the way he once broke Elizabeth’s heart. But when he learns that Elizabeth and her grandmother are struggling to make ends meet, he knows the offer, no matter how painful, is the right thing for everyone.
Elizabeth wants to refuse—to stay far away from the man who hurt her—but she needs the money. Though she vows to protect her heart, spending time in the Beiler household makes Elizabeth realize that, while she’s older and wiser, her love for Randall still burns strong.
Randal, too, seems to want something more. But does he want Elizabeth because he truly loves her—or because he needs a housekeeper? If Randall sincerely wants something more, he must find a way to show Elizabeth—or risk losing his chance at love forever.
About The Author:
Shelley Shepard Gray is a two-time New York Times bestseller, a two-time USA Today bestseller, a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers prestigious Carol Award, and a two-time Holt Medallion winner. She lives in Southern Ohio, where she writes full-time, bakes too much, and can often be found walking her dachshunds on her town’s bike trail
My Review:
Book three in the Return to Sugarcreek brings back the Beiler family, specifically Randall and his family. With a engaging writing style, Gray brings together the simplicity of Amish living, romance, a little bit of mystery and wonderfully developed characters that you will fall in love with. While part of a series, Joyful can also do well as a stand alone novel. As you read Joyful, you will find yourself engaging in all the emotions and experiences that each character does, through good and bad times alike.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase Joyful at your favorite book retailer, as well it is available online through Amazon.com
