Love Unexpected (Beacons of Hope) by Jody Hedlund

*Sigh* I always enjoy opening a new Jody Hedlund book, and I always hate finishing them. Each time I read one of her novels I feel she can’t possibly top the tale. However, she never fails to make me fall in love with another main character. Her skill as an author and her devotion to the Lord become more apparent with each publication. My only complaint is that I have to wait three more months for another of her new releases. If you enjoy Christian romance, you must pick up Love Unexpected.

Set in 1859 - 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.
Not sure you want to spend the money to try a new author? You can still download her novella Out of the Storm for FREE!

An Uncertain Choice, Hedlund’s first YA novel, will release in March. Hearts Made Whole, the second in her Beacons of Hope series, will release in June.
