Love Comes to Paradise by Mary Ellis
And then, unexpectedly, Lewis Miller comes from Harmony to offer Nora what every woman needs--a lifetime of unconditional love. As Lewis attempts to claim her heart, Elam's interest piques. Will Nora come to her senses before Elam's thoughtless choices ruin her reputation beyond repair?
The second book in the New Beginning series is as good as the first. We find Nora King on her way to Paradise, MO. to find the man she believes she fell in love with back in Harmony, ME. Elam is beer drinking, cigarette smoking, lying, stealing, man who can't decide if he's Amish or English.
Lewis Miller follows Nora to Paradise to court her. What ensues is a time of disaster, sadness, and finally the truth. What I didn't like was that in this book Nora is not the same girl she was in the first, I was disappointed that suddenly she went from a freethinker to a proper plain woman even before reaching Paradise.
There's a wonderful tale of love and forgiveness and a happy ending for all. Likeable characters in a pleasant town. 5 out of 5 stars.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Publication date: February 2013
