Love Unexpected - Jody Hedlund

5 Stars!

Presque Isle, Michigan
What Is the Secret That Could Shipwreck Both of Their Lives?
All Emma Chambers ever wanted was a home, but when her steamboat sinks just outside Presque Isle, she's left destitute and with no place to stay.

An unlikely solution arises when the lighthouse keeper arrives in town. He's just lost his wife and is having a difficult time caring for his child. So a traveling preacher gets the idea that the keeper and Emma might be the answer to each other's dilemma. After a hasty marriage, she finds herself heading to the lighthouse with this handsome but quiet stranger. Nothing in her aimless life, though, has prepared her for parenting a rambunctious toddler, as well as managing a household.

Emma soon suspects Patrick may be hiding something from her, and then she hears a disturbing rumor about the circumstances surrounding his late wife's death. It seems as if her wish for a home and family of her own could end up leading her once more into turbulent waters.

I only have one thought really - PERFECT! I loved this perfect historical romance. I loved that is was set in a lighthouse. I loved the characters! Loved Emma and absolutely adored Patrick and his spoiled obstinate little boy LOL. Boy I was rooting for this unlikely trio all the way.

This was a very sweet, clean, give you chills kind of romance! But don't think it is all mush and lovey stuff, there is a lot of action and mystery to this one too. That's what makes it so good.
I wouldn't exactly call this a "Christian Romance" it is a pretty clean romance, there is some kissing and thoughts of desire but they ARE married!

Thank you Bethany House Publishers for this e-book in exchange for my honest review!
