Katie's Way

After a thwarted romance, Katie Miller starts over by moving to Pleasant Valley and opening a quilt shop. Soon Amish and Englisch turn the store into a lively spot…to the consternation of Caleb Brand, who crafts furniture next door. Then Katie’s sister joins her, to escape rumors of her wild rumspringa, and Katie feels the burden of responsibility for a restless teenager. Even worse, her efforts to bring more people to Main Street arouse resistance among local businesses. When acts of vandalism threaten Katie’s shop, she turns to Caleb for comfort, and their friendship deepens. But will Caleb’s secret past prevent him from embracing a future with Katie? Or will their fragile romance develop the strength to last a lifetime?

My Review:

What a great story of friendship, second chances and faith in this wonderful addition to the Pleasant Valley series. This is the fifth book in the series, but can be read as a stand alone, although after reading this one, I can't wait to go back and read the previous four in the series.

We find a struggle existing between Katie who finds that running a quilt shop will provide her with the outlet she needs at this time in her life while surviving from a loss of the love of a man she had hoped to marry. So she spends her time trying to forget by piecing together the fabrics that will wrap love around those that purchase them and in doing so, lends to healing her broken heart. Meanwhile Caleb isn't too happy with his business neighbor, Katie even though he tries he best to make her feel welcome. Well you can just imagine where this one will go, but the journey along the way makes it worth reading this one.

I received this book compliments of Pump Up Your Book for my honest review and can't wait to pick up the rest in this series by Marta Perry. In doing so, this one rates 5 out of 5 stars. Here's even more about the author and a link to purchase a copy of this book today.
