After being railroaded by the city council, Abby needs a man’s name on her bakery’s deed, and a man she can control, not the stoic lumberman Zacharias who always seems to exude silent confidence. She cant even control her pulse when she’s around him. But as trust grows between them, she finds she wants more than his rescue. She wants his heart.
The follow-up to More Than Meets the Eye, book two of the Patchwork Family continues to delight in a very Witemeyer way: unique characters with distinct characteristics that endear them to the reader. If you read the first book in the series, there’s some repetition throughout the book that explains what happened, but not enough to slow down the book too much. While all of her books have a Christian element in them, this one isn’t subtle. It’s much more in-your-face than some of her other books, but not in a preachy way — it all ties in with the story in such an organic way that it’s hard to imagine the story without it.
The story captured my attention from the beginning and I stayed up all night to read it because I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen. Another great book from Witemeyer!
(My only real complaint — they guy on the cover is too nice to be Zach! He needs to be more rugged.)
