Review:

Sometimes bloggers can make mistakes and I definitely made a mistake with Fearless Hope by Serena B. Miller, as for some reason I put the book in the wrong TBR pile. I thought the book was for a blog tour for sometime in June, but actually there was no blog tour for the book and I was suppose to have my review posted by April 8th.

Fearless Hope centers on Hope Yoder, who had recently lost her husband. To support her children, including one that is on the way, she must take a job as a part-time housekeeper for an Englisch man, Logan Parker, whom happens to be a bestselling crime fiction writer.

Logan is use to the big city life in New York, but his life changes when he accompanies his fiancée, on a trip to Ohio, where he falls in love with an Amish farmhouse that is for sale, as he thinks it would make the perfect writing retreat. The peaceful Amish country may be the perfect solution to relieve him of the dreadful writer's block.

Despite being engaged, Logan is almost instantly attracted to his new housekeeper, Hope. With his fiancée returning to New York, so he can relax and write, Logan and Hope spend more time together. Hope doesn't know if she can accept loving someone else other than her husband, but with her strong faith in the Lord, she might be able to find happiness again.

From my understanding, Fearless Hope is part of a series, but to me the book plays out like a stand-alone novel. Spoiler: Within the first few pages, Hope's husband is killed! Though the scene is sad, it is smart decision by the author, as I was instantly hooked into the story. Similar to when I recently read the author's other novel, Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio, I flew right the pages. Serena B. Miller has a great way with descriptions and creating wonderful characters. Overall, I thought Fearless Hope was emotional, intriguing story.
