{{Book Review}} The Proposal at Siesta Key




A young Amish woman, yearning for freedom, crosses paths with a handsome Mennonite celebrity in a deeply moving tale of friendship and self-discovery—the second installment in the unforgettable New York Times bestselling author’s new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.
Penny Troyer rarely disobeys her parents. In the years since her sister’s tragic death, they’ve wanted nothing more than to keep her safe…even if it means never leaving the house.
But tonight, she’s bending the rules because Michael Knoxx, the most famous member of The Knoxx Family Singers, a traveling Mennonite Evangelical family —is scheduled to speak. Penny has heard of Michael—how he lost part of his leg in a terrible accident and uses the experience to inspire others—and knows she must meet him. So, for the first time ever, Penny stands up to her parents and goes out on her own. 
Though he speaks about living life to the fullest, Michael knows he needs to take his own advice. Life on the road is grueling and Michael wants to slow down, to rest…to perhaps meet someone who sees him as a man, not just a celebrity. So when a twist of fate allows him the chance to stay a little longer in Pinecraft, Michael knows God is showing him a new path, especially when he discovers how much he and Penny Troyer have in common.
But new friendships can’t stop time. Soon, Michael's time in Pinecraft will be over and he'll be back on the road. Her time with Michael has brought her happiness, but will she be able to follow her heart? Or will she be faced with the one thing she’s sure she'll never have the courage to do? 

*My Review*
"The Proposal at Siesta Key" is the second book in the "Pinecraft Brides" series. I had the chance to read the first book and was excited to learn I would be reviewing this one as well. It is oh so beautifully written.  Shelley Shepard Gray has a way with writing that will capture your heart. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors.

I don't often give a book 5 stars, in fact I can count on one hand the number of "5 star" reviews I've given books...but this book, no...so far this series would get a 5 star!

Be warned once you start reading this book you will feel like you are in Florida at the Orange Blossom Inn. This book will sweep you off of your feet and will have you impatiently waiting for the third book in the series!
