He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they're really looking for.
Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.
Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father , the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.
Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.
A Legacy of Faith series by Robin Lee Hatcher ties all the characters together with a family Bible. I have my grandfather's old pulpit Bible and a couple of my Daddy's Bibles. It is really neat to go back and see their thoughts on certain Scripture. I have three Bibles that I do most of my studying out of. I have three boys. I have written notes in each one for each individual child. Each boy will own one of the three boys with all my notes in them. I plan to pass them down to them as a legacy too. But Hatcher's stories is a Bible that is passed down to help the grandchildren as they have lost their way from the Lord. The romance is sweet. Just like contemporary romances' fans enjoy. The predictable ending occurs, but it was a nice journey to see how the heroine and hero fall in love and overcome obstacles. As for the cover, I'm usually not a fan of white covers because there is so much dead space, but for some reason, I really like this cover. The yellow on her apron matches the yellow in the title and looks nicely done. I think fans of Hatcher and contemporary romance authors like Courtney Walsh, Kara Issac, or Becky Wade might enjoy this novel too.
I received a complimentary copy of How Sweet It Is by Robin Lee Hatcher from Thomas Nelson Publishers, but the opinions stated are all my own.
