Love Unexpected Book Review

"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."

I love Jody Hedlund's historical romance; she has a way of weaving a story that intrigues the reader and keeps you in suspense until the very end. I have only read one other book written by Jody and realize I need to add more to my library.  This story was one that kept me reading, wanting to find out what the secret was behind Patrick's life.  I loved the description of the coast line of Michigan and reading the duties of a lighthouse keeper in the 1850's.  You quickly grow to dislike certain characters and embrace others.  I found this a delightful book and now realize I must read more of her stories.
This book was provided to me free of charge from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group, for my honest review; I received no compensation for this review.
If you haven't read anything of Jody's, look for her books.



  1. Glad you enjoyed the read. Hope all was well with the dental work. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Thanks for the review. Mom said she hasn't had much time for reading but she is trying to read a story to me about a dog named Barkley.
