Season of the Heart book 2. I have not read book 1 but I would like to go back and read it.
Autumn Winds smelled so good in my mind I gained weight just reading it. Sweet Seasons Bakery owner Miriam Lantz has been a widower for 2 years. Her Bishop thinks she should sell her business and marry him. He has 5 kids and as buried two wives.
Miriam has no intention of marring him.
Miriam has triplet daughters and one is getting married really soon. One was thought drowned when she was three and the other is a little lost with all the changes in her life.
Ben Hooley came to town with his wagon where he works and sleeps taking care of horse shoeing and other blacksmith jobs. He is looking for a place to call home. Where his brothers can build a mill buy land they can afford.
Ben came to town in the middle of a storm early in the morning and right then a branch broke and fell into the bakery window,the power went out and Ben's horse hates lightning kicked him and took off.
Miriam rushes out when she heard Ben fall. Miriam and Ben both liked what they saw. After Ben got up okay he pulled the branch out and covered the window. He loved the smell of the bakery and was given breakfast. Miriam thought he was too young for her. But Ben brought smiles back into her life.
Rhoda was feeling that nothing was different when she met Ben and she set her cap for him, but Ben was interested in her mother.
I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and want the best for them. I would be interested to read more books by Charlotte Hubbard in the future.
I was given this ebook to read in return for honest review from Netgalley.
