Liza’s Second Chance by Molly Jebber (Giveaway and Review)

About the Book

7-19-2017-from-John-S.-Lizas-Second-Chance-183x300Title: Liza’s Second Chance

Author: Molly Jebber

Genre: Christian Amish Fiction

Release Date: January 30, 2018

The sweet welcome of straight-from-the-oven sugar cookies and hot cocoa. The warm invitation of apple pie and fresh cold milk. In 1912 Ohio, the Amish Charm Bakery is the heart of a close-knit, faith-nourished community, where people can find a refuge, a place to start again—and love that can make their lives new . . .

For Liza Schrock, the bakery her late husband bought was an unexpected haven from their unhappy arranged marriage. Now she’s perfectly content to cook up mouth-watering delights for her hometown, give to those alone or in trouble—and remain happily unwed. And though she’s willing to give handsome, newly-arrived widower Jacob Graber all the help he desperately needs, she is sure they can stay just friends . . .

But as Liza also tries to aid Jacob’s troubled teenage daughter, she starts caring far too much for his gentle ways and steadfast hopes. And when a wrenching secret she must keep comes between them, can Liza find the faith to risk opening her heart again—and reach for one more chance at real love?

MY THOUGHTS‘Love forever warms the heart …’

Initially, I felt a wee bit out of my comfort zone as Amish fiction is a new genre for me. I didn’t think I would like the book, but I loved it! The glossary of Amish vocabulary is a wonderful idea, not that I needed it. The book is written to a standard which allows instant connection and understanding of everything Amish.

The characters were well developed throughout the book where necessary, and I could clearly visualise them. I did find some repetitions within the narrative that could have been tedious, however, as this book is beautifully written, they didn’t bother me too much. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Amish way of life. What a beautifully gentle, and God loving people they are. This is how Christian brothers and sisters should be treating each other.

If you would like to read a sweet story of sincere love, set in an Amish community, then this is the book for you. I was provided with an Advanced Readers Copy by the author via CelebrateLit. I have never at any stage been expected to provide a positive review, and have not been financially rewarded. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

Guest Post from Molly Jebber

Here’s a little about Liza’s story:

Hello Friends,

I loved writing about Liza. She has a lot to overcome in this book, but her faith in God and compassion for others helps her to arrive at her decisions through difficult and happy times. I enjoyed visiting Charm, and it makes for a good setting for this story. The bakery is fun with all the sugary pies, pastries, and breads. The unique customers, and the place where friends are made, and where trouble happens. Most of all, I hope I’ve done a good job entertaining you as you read “Liza’s Second Chance”.
