The Proposal at Siesta Key (The Pinecraft Brides #2)



Title:  The Proposal at Siesta Key (The Pinecraft Brides #2)
Author:  Shelley Shepard Gray
Pages:  288
Year:  2015
Publisher:  Avon Inspire
My rating is 5 stars.
We are introduced to characters in the first book titled, The Promise of Palm Grove along with a wonderful B & B.  The setting is sunny Florida in the small town of Pinecraft that is close to the ocean along with a wonderful, close knit, Amish community.  The Orange Blossom B & B is operated daily by Beverly.  Recently she hired a young lady named Penny Troyer to care for Michael Know while he recoups after surgery.
Trouble begins to brew when Beverley’s unhealed heart is hurt when she thinks she views an improper moment between Michael and Rachael.  Now, after taking time to pray, she is confronted by the owner, Eric, as he learns about owning this business he inherited.  On top of this, Tricia comes to surprise her Aunt Beverly, running away from an embarrassing situation at home.
There is romance blooming with a new set of young people in the community and there really isn’t much reference to the characters readers met in book one.  I was a little disappointed by that as I came to enjoy them in the first story.  There is a third book that I will be reading titled, A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn by the same author.  Perhaps the characters not written into the second book will show up more in book three.  Either way I know I laughed a lot while reading this tale because of the way one guest of the inn was expressing how she viewed Florida.
Please consider reading the books written by Shelley Shepard Gray as they are highly entertaining, faith filled and have moments of climax with tension that make for an enjoyable afternoon of getting lost in the fictional town of Pinecraft!

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…
