Mary Ellis's Love Comes to Paradise ~ Reviewed

Love Comes to Paradise
Mary Ellis
Release Date   Nov 1, 2012
Publisher   Harvest House Publishers
ISBN  0736938672  


Love Comes to Paradise is the second book in bestselling author Mary Ellis's New Beginnings series. It's about fresh starts...and how faith in God and His perfect plans provide the peace and joy all long for.

Nora King believes she is a woman in love. When Elam Detweiler leaves the ultraconservative Amish district of Harmony, Maine, and moves to Paradise, Missouri, Nora follows soon after. But does she love the man or the independence and freethinking he represents? Although she finds good work in her new town, Nora can't seem to capture Elam's Englisch-leaning heart, no matter how hard she tries.
And then, unexpectedly, Lewis Miller comes from Harmony to offer Nora what every woman needs--a lifetime of unconditional love. As Lewis attempts to claim her heart, Elam's interest piques. Will Nora come to her senses before Elam's thoughtless choices ruin her reputation beyond repair?


Love Comes to Paradise is book two in The New Beginning Series.   In this story, Nora King follows Elam Detweiler from the super strict district in Harmony, Maine to Paradise, Missouri.  She is staying with her sister in laws family and gets a job in a local bakery.  However, as she gets to know Elam, she begins to wonder if she truly is in love with him.  And when Lewis Miller, an Amish man who had fallen in love with her in Harmony, comes to court her, she gets even more confused as to who she is supposed to be with.
This was a fun story.  Book one left off a bit abruptly for me, and I was glad to see the story continue with Nora.  It was fun to see her character develop from a flighty girl to a more mature young woman.
