Georgia Sweethearts



A pattern for love.

After inheriting her great-uncle's failing yarn shop, Lilly Barnes is determined to make it a success. All she wants is stability, something she doesn't think possible in the small town of Corinthia, Georgia. Then Pastor Daniel Foreman rents space in her store to hold meetings for his growing congregation, and this proves to be her lifeline. At first Lilly wants nothing to do with Daniel's big dreams, but she soon finds herself starting to share his goals. Yet trouble between her customers and his congregation make them both doubt the path they're on. That is until practical Lilly shows him that love is a risk worth taking.

My Review:

This book has one of the best inspirational threads I've ever read. It rings true and really touched me. Both Lilly and Daniel are a product of how they were raised and the author does a wonderful, sometimes gritty, job of showing how life experiences shape the adults we become.  Add instant attraction to the angst and you get the thrill of a realistic love story that will leave you cheering both the hero and heroine on. A truly memorable read.
