{{Book Review}} Love Arrives in Pieces- {{Another}} AWESOME book from Betsy St. Amant!!!

For so long, Stella was known for her beauty. Now, with her heart stripped bare, she must discover who she really is.

Former pageant queen Stella Varland doesn't trust beauty anymore after her divorce. Her appearance betrayed her and led to brokenness, so instead of being beautiful, now she tries to make beautiful things, but she always falls short. So she keeps her passion for art to herself and focuses on her interior design work. But if she doesn't get another job soon, she'll be stuck living with her parents.

Contractor Chase Taylor is determined to live a life of no regrets after losing his fiancée. Now he lives life at full speed, striving to see how much he can accomplish. He knows if he slows down, he'll fall apart. So he returns home to Bayou Bend to renovate the town's old theater and is shocked to discover that the designer for the project is his old flame, Stella.

Forced to work together, Chase and Stella battle their chemistry and past as they struggle to compromise and work together on a vision for the theater. Their wills clash as they attempt to hide their brokenness---and their unresolved feelings for each other-until Chase discovers the hidden parts of Stella, while losing her trust in the process.

A near catastrophe, a fire, and a small-town gossip mill finally force Stella and Chase to realize that they have a choice---to hold on to the shards of their pasts, or surrender their fragmented pieces to the One who makes a beautiful masterpiece from their brokenness.

*My Review*
Betsy St. Amant has been one of my new favorite authors since I read "All's Fair in Love & Cupcakes". With Love Arrives in Pieces, she has secured her place as my go-to Christian contemporary romance author. This story has a depth that will speak to many women.

I enjoyed this book so much. The interaction between the characters was fun and {{sometimes}} light-hearted. But Betsy also had them dealing with some heavier issues, such as(but not limited to); forgiveness, self-esteem, and healing. 

This book doesn't suggest that it is part of a series, but I am so glad that I "All's Fair in Love & Cup Cakes" as it shed some light on the relationships between some of the family members. Love Arrives in Pieces centered around the relationship of the two main characters. 

It's the perfect perfect light romance book for a summer read down by the pool or lake! 
I would suggest this book(and the other one) to anyone looking for a good read!
