The Promise of Palm Grove (Avon Inspire, January 2015)

Leona must decide: Does she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?

A young Amish woman finds herself torn between the man she’s pledged to wed and the man her heart desires in this heartwarming story of chance, duty, and choice in the face of love—the first volume in the beloved New York Times bestselling author’s new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.

Amish bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be in Florida, on a mini-vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she’s happy because she’s away from the stress of wedding planning. They have no idea that Leona’s real joy is in being away from her fiancé.

Edmund is a good man, and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. Her cousins are sure Edmund is the right man for her—and their certainty makes Leona begin to doubt herself. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kauffman, Leona’s faced with two vastly different futures.

My Review:
I really enjoyed The Promise of Palm Grove.  I really like that it took place in Pinecraft Florida, it sounds like a place I would want to visit. I was happy that Leona was able to get away for a vacation and away from her finance Edmund.  He was kind of a jerk to Leona and didn’t seem to really care about her happiness.  The Promise of Palm Grove really kept my attention and I was happy with the ending.  I really didn’t want the book to end as I wanted to keep hearing about the characters.  It was a good heartwarming book.
