Book Review: Liza's Second Chance

Liza's Second Chance FB Banner copy



 One of the things I love about Amish fiction is the reading about the community and how they always come together for each other. Liza's Second Chance shows a strong community that has a great love for one another. When new members of the community come in they are welcomed with open arms. Liza the main character of this novel is strong and independent which is quite different than most Amish women. She is a business owner, who has been hurt in the past. Through the book we see her grow as she helps another young teen grow up. Trials come her way but they only make her stronger. I loved that while this book was predictable it still had a strong story that kept me drawn into the last page. The characters were likable and I found myself rooting for them. I very much enjoyed being part of Liza's world. Jebber did a wonderful job at writing a story that was both believable and entertaining.



About the Book

Title: Liza’s Second Chance
7-19-2017 from John S. Liza's Second ChanceAuthor: 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?

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”.
