My rating is 5 stars.
I’m now all caught up with the Pinecraft Bride series only to learn that the fourth and final book, A Christmas Bride at Pinecraft, will be released next month!  The books are very entertaining as well as spell-binding!  The author sets her novels in Pinecraft, Florida at the Orange Blossom Inn with the innkeeper Beverly as really the main and constant character throughout the books.
In this novel, a marriage is about to take place between two Amish people who are quite young.  The funny part is when the beagle of the neighborhood decides to be a guest and help himself to the abundance of food all to the surprise of his owner Emma!  Emma is a widow who is raising three girls and Jay is a widower who raised his three sons.  Now his oldest Ben is getting married, but it doesn’t come about without some trails.
Beverly came to Pinecraft to begin a new life, living with her aunt in the inn she owned and operated.  Later, after her aunt passes away, she learns she isn’t the owner but is asked to remain at the inn and run the daily operations of the place.  Beverly is only 34 years old, but having once been jilted she is beyond scared to death to risk loving another man.  Yet Eric continues to slowly woo her and help her become comfortable around him, trust him and know he would try really hard not to hurt her.
It would definitely be a shame if these books weren’t read and enjoyed by readers.  I for one really fell in love with the series and look forward to the fourth and final book.  I hope it concludes the series the way the other books have in humor, tension, faith, hope and romance!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
