61kabzeSXfL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_I’m an avid Denise Hunter fan with my very favorite book of hers being The Convenient Groom, but in all honesty, almost every book I’ve read by this author has been such a fun, romantic read. What I’ve come to expect in a Denise Hunter novel is solid characters, a sprinkle of humor, a dash of adventure, a peppering of faith, and a good slathering of romance.

So when Denise’s newest book, Sweetbriar Cottage, also added my Blue Ridge Mountains to the list…well, seriously, how could I NOT want to read this book? With Denise’s usual expertise of charming and bittersweet, she also has a knack for showing us God’s unfailing love in the way the hero ends up loving the heroine. (This is one of my favorite tropes, btw)

We get a beautiful picture of this ‘love story’ through the relationship of Josephine and Noah, a couple who used to be married, thought they filed for divorce, and then discover they’re NOT divorced after all.

SweetbriarcottageIn the dazzling way known as Denise-Hunter-writing, we delve into a novel of what love really looks like when hurts are deep and forgiveness is hard. It’s her signature. A hero who shows God’s love in a tangible way to a broken, insecure, and wounded heroine. It’s one of the reasons I love her books so much. Some of the other reasons are…super romance, wonderful kisses, sweet storytelling, and excellent descriptions.

If you’re a fan of stories with a deeper thread of redemption, two people trapped in a cabin during a snowstorm, and a God who mends broken things with his unfathomable love, you’ll probably enjoy Sweetbriar Cottage.

A delightfully sweet read with a poignant core about the healing power of love.

    I read this one recently and loved everything about it!! I had only ever read her Nantucket series years ago and loved each one. I’ve also watched A December Bride on TV twice based on her book. So she’s now on my list of must-read authors…lol!! I love stories of heart and soul and have deeper meaning 🙂
