My Review

How Sweet it IsThis novel was a nice way to round out the Legacy of Faith series. I believe that it can be read and understood without reading the first two books in the series. However, I feel that I had a greater appreciation for the historical portion of the novel because I have read the entire series.

I thought that Jed and Holly’s relationship growth throughout the story felt realistic. Holly had some serious trust issues to overcome, which did get in the way a bit, but made for some good emotional and spiritual growth for her.

I felt sorry for Jed and the fact that he and his brother had a falling out. Even though all ended well, I felt that the way the dad handled things was wrong. However, the story line involving Chris did turn out to add another interesting element and I would have been pleased to have had even more from that part of the book toward the end.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

How Sweet It Is
(Lagacy of Faith, #3)
By Robin Lee Hatcher
Christian Contemporary Romance
Paperback, Audiobook & ebook, 304 Pages
July 14th 2020 by Thomas Nelson

He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they’re really looking for.

Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.

Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father, the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.

Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.

    Thank you for your review on “How Sweet It Is” by Robin Lee Hatcher.
    Since both hubby and I love to be in the kitchen, absolutely love this cover! Can’t wait for the opportunity to read this book on my TBR list.

    I have meet up with old friends again. Two right off hand I can think of were completely opposite of each other. One it was nice, but we never did really connect again after the one meet up. The other, it was like we just picked up where we had left off. We have stayed touch and visit when we can. Some times parting of the ways was just meant to be with each going their own direction and other times it was just a matter of particular circumstances and led to a void in time where the friendship was put on hold.

    I have not read the first two novels, but I thought this one sounded like a wonderful read. I have not gone back to meet old friends, but I would love to.
