Love Unexpected Review

Presque Isle, Michigan
What Is the Secret That Could Shipwreck Both of Their Lives?

All Emma Chambers ever wanted was a home, but when her steamboat sinks just outside Presque Isle, she's left destitute and with no place to stay.

An unlikely solution arises when the lighthouse keeper arrives in town. He's just lost his wife and is having a difficult time caring for his child. So a traveling preacher gets the idea that the keeper and Emma might be the answer to each other's dilemma. After a hasty marriage, she finds herself heading to the lighthouse with this handsome but quiet stranger. Nothing in her aimless life, though, has prepared her for parenting a rambunctious toddler, as well as managing a household.

Emma soon suspects Patrick may be hiding something from her, and then she hears a disturbing rumor about the circumstances surrounding his late wife's death. It seems as if her wish for a home and family of her own could end up leading her once more into turbulent waters.

Love Unexpected By Jody Hedlund is the first book in her new series Beacons of Hope. Every book I have read by Jody has never failed to become a favorite of mine and I am happy to say that this one has done the same.  I enjoyed the characters and seeing their growth. While I loved the character of Emma I have to say that I enjoyed Patrick's character even more. I liked the story of his past and how his life changed. Love Unexpected is a great start to what I have a feeling will be an amazing series. I can't wait for the next book about Emma's brother Ryan!

5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that was as good as I expected! 

I got a free review copy of Love Unexpected from Bethany House Publishers in return for my honest review.
