From the bestselling author of The Convenient Groom (now a beloved Hallmark Original movie) comes the final book in Hunter’s Blue Ridge Romance series.
Pastor Jack McReady has secretly carried a torch for Daisy for two long years. She’s a member of his congregation, after all, and she’ll never see him as more than a trusted counselor. Jack’s best friend Noah has taken every opportunity to encourage his lovesick friend, but when Noah catches wind that Daisy has joined an online dating site, he takes matters into his own hands and orchestrates a meet-cute of the most unconventional kind.
Owner of the local flower shop, Daisy Pendleton is content with her small-town life, but she’d sure like someone to share it with. After several disastrous first dates, she’s about to give up—and then she finds a seemingly wonderful man online. Daisy gets to know TJ through a series of messages but finds herself spending more time with Pastor Jack outside of the church at the same time. What she doesn’t know is that her online prospect and Jack are one and the same.
Just as Daisy’s love life starts to look promising, a mysterious woman appears in town. Daisy is faced with a revelation about her family that turns her world upside down, and she looks to both TJ and Jack for help.
Jack must find a way to reveal himself as her online suitor without breaking her heart and losing her trust. As Daisy faces Jack’s betrayal, she’ll have to learn to extend grace to herself, her family, and the man she’s grown to love.
On Magnolia Lane is the third book in the Blue Ridge series and can easily be read as a stand alone novel if you have not read the previous books. I have loved the entire series and HIGHLY recommend you grabbing them. You will gobble these books up fast! Honestly, I could not wait to find out what was going on with Pastor Jack. I stayed up way to late reading this book, but it was well worth the read!
With a small town feel, and romance in this air, this book brings community and people who love God together. Strong themes of forgiveness and grace abound in this book. I can't say a whole lot more, but just READ this book and the series. You will love Denise Hunter! She is a gift writer.
I reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. I was not required to write a review. All opinions expressed are my own.
