Liza’s Second Chance Blog Tour/Giveaway

 


My Review:

I am a huge fan of Amish Fiction that I have considered giving up everything and moving to an Amish Community. When I got the chance to read Molly Jebber’s new Amish Fiction book I couldn’t wait to get it in my hands. I will be honest, it was one of the best novels yet!!! Liza’s Second Chance is part of the Amish Charm Bakery and it is the first in the series. Beautifully written just like all her novels, this one will leave you ready for the second one in the series.

Liza Schrock loves baking and loves her bakery that her late husband had bought for her. She is often baking for the people of the community, as well as staying single. She even reaches out to help a widower with his teenage daughter. Jacob Graber has just arrived in the community and needs help with his troubled teenager. Liza just wants to stay friends with Jacob but comes to caring for him.

Reading Liza’s story is beautiful and seeing her heart of gold will warm your heart. Liza’s Second Chance is that sweet, happy book that you will read over and over again.

About the Book

Title: Liza’s Second Chance

Author: Molly Jebber

Genre: Christian Amish Fiction

Release Date: January 30, 2018

The sweet welcome of straight-from-the-oven sugar cookies and hot cocoa. The warm invitation of apple pie and fresh cold milk. In 1912 Ohio, the Amish Charm Bakery is the heart of a close-knit, faith-nourished community, where people can find a refuge, a place to start again—and love that can make their lives new . . .

For Liza Schrock, the bakery her late husband bought was an unexpected haven from their unhappy arranged marriage. Now she’s perfectly content to cook up mouth-watering delights for her hometown, give to those alone or in trouble—and remain happily unwed. And though she’s willing to give handsome, newly-arrived widower Jacob Graber all the help he desperately needs, she is sure they can stay just friends . . .

But as Liza also tries to aid Jacob’s troubled teenage daughter, she starts caring far too much for his gentle ways and steadfast hopes. And when a wrenching secret she must keep comes between them, can Liza find the faith to risk opening her heart again—and reach for one more chance at real love?

Here’s a little about Liza’s story:

Hello Friends,

I loved writing about Liza. She has a lot to overcome in this book, but her faith in God, and compassion for others helps her to arrive at her decisions through difficult and happy times. I enjoyed visiting Charm, and it makes for a good setting for this story. The bakery is fun with all the sugary pies, pastries, and breads. The unique customers, and the place where friends are made, and where trouble happens. Most of all, I hope I’ve done a good job entertaining you as you read “Liza’s Second Chance”.

My Review:

I love reading Molly Jebber’s books, she has the writing style that draws you in and you absolutely can’t put the book down until your finished with it. I will have to admit it took me longer to read this one due to some things that I had happened in our lives, but when I got it finished was sad, I didn’t want it to end.

Two Suitors for Anna is an Amish Historical Romance set in 1903 Ohio. Anna Plank, her widowed mamm and two schweschders (sisters) live in Berlin, Ohio. Anna has finally found a real sense of belonging and can’t wait until her beloved Nathan proposes but Noah surprises Anna with something: that once they are married he wants to travel and live in other Amish communities. Molly doesn’t want to leave her family and her job. Noah takes her hesitation as rejection and leaves.

Daniel Bontrager has shown Anna attention and friendship. Anna is confused because she knows not only is she choosing a husband but a life to nature and share. Anna knows she  has a decision to make but she doesn’t want to make the wrong one.

I received a copy of this book, a favorable review was not required. All opinions expressed are my own.

Book: Two Suitors for Anna

Author: Molly Jebber

Genre: Amish Historical Romance

Release Date: January 31, 2017

In 1903 Ohio, a young Amish woman must choose between the life she has long planned for and a new, very different future…

Since Anna Plank moved to Berlin, Ohio, with her widowed mamm and two schweschders, she’s found a real sense of belonging. As soon as her beloved Noah Schwartz proposes, they’ll begin a new chapter here together. But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants them to travel and live in other communities. Anna, who loves her home and her job at the quilt shop, is distraught when he takes her hesitation as rejection—and leaves.

Daniel Bontrager’s arrival adds to Anna’s confusion. Since taking over his late brother’s farm, the handsome roofer has offered friendship and gentle attentions. Yet the pull of first love is strong and deep, especially when Noah returns. Through each revelation, Anna must search her faith for guidance, knowing she is choosing not just a husband, but a life to nurture and to share…

Guest Post from Molly Jebber

What prompted Two Suitors for Anna?
Have you had to choose between two men you love? Or maybe a friend? I gave Anna this dilemma and added to her turmoil by throwing in a bundle of twists and turns to the story.
Noah proposes to Anna, and he takes her rejection as hesitation and leaves town. Daniel moves to Berlin and offers her friendship which is blossoming into something more, when Noah returns and asks her forgiveness and another chance. I hope you enjoy it!

About the Book

A handsome newcomer with secrets shows a yearning Amish woman a chance at happiness—but their love will need all their courage to keep . . .

Grace Blauch is skilled at midwifery—and crafting quilts that help others pass on messages of enduring family love. But a disfiguring birthmark keeps the young Amish woman from a husband and home of her own—until Mark King arrives from another community. His helpfulness and independent nature earn Grace’s respect. And he finds her outspoken ways and determination to do right irresistibly appealing. Soon Grace is planning a wedding quilt of her very own . . . until her father discovers that Mark’s shunned brother is hiding somewhere in town . . .

Grace can well understand why Mark took such a risk once she hears his wrenching reasons. But she fears even prayer will not convince her father to restore his blessing on their union. She wills herself to face the end of her dreams, but sudden danger and an impossible act of generosity will show her that abiding hope can inspire the most precious of miracles . . .

My Review:

Grace’s Forgiveness is Book 2 in Molly Jebber’s A Keepsake Pocket Quilt Novel series. Grace is a young Amish woman who was born with a large birthmark on her face, a mark that everyone sees when they look at her. All Grace longs for is a happy life, to be a wife, and have a family. Skilled in Midwiferey and quilt making, Grace’s uses these to pass the time until one day a handsome stranger comes to the community and is smitten by Grace.

Mark King wins Grace’s heart and soon they are to be married until her father finds news about Mark’s brother and does not give his blessing on the union. Will Grace and Mark be married? Will Grace be able to forgive Mark?

This is another great book by Molly, one I definitely couldn’t put down. I highly recommend this book to all Amish Fiction lovers. You will not be disappointed!!

Thank you to Celebrate Lit and the Author for providing me with a copy of this book for my honest review.

A SLEIGH RIDE ON ICE MOUNTAIN
Kelly Long ”The
For solitary toy-maker Sebastian Christner, hiring Kate Zook as his new housekeeper is simply the right thing to do. Now she can support her special-needs brother. But one taste of her independent spirit is showing him undreamed-of holiday joy—and making him long to give her a home for always . . .

A MAMM FOR CHRISTMAS
Amy Lillard
Bernice Yoder has far too much to do to entertain holiday dreams. Even if she can help Jess Schmucker outwit his three mischievous young daughters, it’s impossible to imagine the handsome widower can see her as anything but a scolding schoolteacher. He never guesses how a magical Christmas Eve will open his eyes to love or how Der Herr will awaken their faith and hope.

AN UNEXPECTED CHRISTMAS BLESSING
Molly Jebber
As much as Charity Lantz’s children need a father, the young widow isn’t sure her new neighbor Luke Fisher can ever be the right choice. They’re having more disagreements than snowflakes in December. Besides, he’s never given a sign he wants to be more than friends. Can Gott show them a way past their misunderstandings to a forever love?

My Review:

Change of Heart is not the typical Amish Fiction that I am used to reading, I really enjoyed reading this book and found that I couldn’t put it down. I will be honest, it takes a few chapters for me to get into it, but once I did, I could not put it down. Change of Heart is a historical Amish fiction that takes place in 1899 and tells the story of a young Amish girl, Becca Yost, who had been left at the altar. Becca leaves the Amish community and takes a job work for Dr. Matt Carrington. Becca finds her self falling for the Dr. but his mother wants him to marry someone in the community, not an Amish lady. Becca’s heart is broken and feels that it is not meant to be for her and Matt. Becca’s life is about to change.

I highly recommend this book to those that enjoy historical fiction as well as Amish fiction. This book may not be for everyone. I give Change of Heart 4 out of 5 Stars.
