I have so looked forward to reading this 3rd book in the “A Season in Pinecraft” Series. Lilly has moved to Pinecraft to have a fresh start. She has the support of her two friends that have made the transition there a few years ago and now have families.
Her past holds some painful secrets that she believes have held her back from being happy. She is delighted to quickly be hired as a housekeeper at the Marigold Inn. Life can’t be better. She is near her friends; she loves her job and feels accepted by the staff. She has no desire to marry and hopes to buy her own home someday.
That is until Eddie Byler, an Amish farmer on vacation with his grandmother, November, checks into the inn. (Love her name!)
Her new life seems too good to be true and the past is behind her, but that isn’t how life works, is it? Challenges and problems develop testing her in ways she had never dreamed.
My heart ached for Lily. She came for a new start and may have left some things behind, but she brought with her lack of self-worth and insecurities. She didn’t realize these were the root cause of her unhappiness from her past. Always second guessing herself and failing to see her wonderful qualities kept her in a constant state of anxiety. I could feel it!
I loved Eddie’s grandmother November! She was fun and spunky. No one was going to coddle her or tell what to do! Her independent spirit and desire to enjoy every moment was a delight. I liked her no nonsense wisdom she did not hesitate to share with those who she felt needed.
Both Eddie and Lilly lacked in communication skills, struggling to express themselves. It was painful to watch them grow in this area, but rewarding to see the results.
The way the all characters not just the main ones, interacted gave so much depth to the story. The unexpected turns and surprises kept me turning pages! I truly enjoyed the book
I received this book from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers Program and Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review. The opinions stated are my own.

Amish Love Letters by Shelley Shepard Gray, Charlotte Hubbard, and Rosalind Lauer contains three sweet Amish stories. Love Letter Courtship by Shelley Shepard Gray is a charming tale. It is well-written with engaging characters. Jennie Miller and Matthew Lapp may have grown up together, but their courtship seems to be a Miller family affair. A month-long letter courtship will give the pair an opportunity to get to know each other as adults. We see that you may grow up with someone, yet you may not know everything about them. Love Letter Courtship is an emotional novel with a lovely ending. S.W.A.K. by Charlotte Hubbard takes us back to Promise Lodge. I found Eddie Brubaker and the determined letter writer to be frustrating. The story seemed to go around in circles. Eddie ignored advice (the letter writer was not going to go away) and manages to hurt someone feelings in the process. I was surprised that an Amish girl was so brazen. There are also a number of characters in the story (it seems like every character from Promise Lodge makes an appearance). The story does have a good lesson or two. I did feel that the romance was rushed. I enjoy reading Charlotte Hubbard’s novels, but S.W.A.K. was a miss for me (it left me annoyed). The Wrong Valentine by Rosalind Lauer is a touching story. I thought it contained good writing and characters. The descriptions of Mose’s sketches and Martha’s Valentine’s allowed me to visualize them. The ending left me smiling. I enjoyed reading Love Letter Courtship and The Wrong Valentine. I read each story in one sitting. While I liked visiting Promise Lodge and catching up with the characters in S.W.A.K., I was not a fan of the story. Amish Love Letters is a triumvirate of tales with a letter courtship, an interfering family, pink correspondence, painting parties, helpful counsel, a wary widow, cute sketches, and helpful friends.… (mer)

For the closing of this series, Lilly returns to Pinecraft to work at The Marigold Inn. She meets Eddie's grandmother first, then him, and a romance begins. I like how the author also included a romance of an older couple: the chef and the owner of the inn. Although this is the conclusion of this Pinecraft series, I hope the author will write more stories that take place there.
