About the book:
The Promise of Palm Grove (Avon Inspire, January 2015)
Leona must decide: Does she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?
A young Amish woman finds herself torn between the man she's pledged to wed and the man her heart desires in this heartwarming story of chance, duty, and choice in the face of love---the first volume in the beloved New York Times bestselling author's new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.
Amish bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be in Florida, on a mini-vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she's happy because she's away from the stress of wedding planning. They have no idea that Leona's real joy is in being away from her fiancé.
Edmund is a good man, and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. Her cousins are sure Edmund is the right man for her---and their certainty makes Leona begin to doubt herself. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kauffman, Leona's faced with two vastly different futures.

Shelley's first book in her new series is a must-read for fans of Amish fiction. I really enjoyed this book as the storyline was fun and different, the setting was a nice vacation from the current cold weather and the characters were likable. Leona is faced with a choice, a major choice as it will determine what her life will be like "til death do us part" and I loved the interactions between her and her friends and also the two guys whom she is torn between. I felt the story moved along at a nice pace and I could believe I was already at the end when I had finished the book as it was so hard to stop reading once I started. I am looking forward to book 2!
