Liza's Second Chance by Molly Jebber

About the Book

Title: Liza’s Second Chance  
Author: Molly Jebber  
Genre: Christian Amish Fiction 
  Release Date: January 30, 2018  

The sweet welcome of straight-from-the-oven sugar cookies and hot cocoa. The warm invitation of apple pie and fresh cold milk. In 1912 Ohio, the Amish Charm Bakery is the heart of a close-knit, faith-nourished community, where people can find a refuge, a place to start again—and love that can make their lives new . . . For Liza Schrock, the bakery her late husband bought was an unexpected haven from their unhappy arranged marriage. Now she’s perfectly content to cook up mouth-watering delights for her hometown, give to those alone or in trouble—and remain happily unwed. And though she’s willing to give handsome, newly-arrived widower Jacob Graber all the help he desperately needs, she is sure they can stay just friends . . . But as Liza also tries to aid Jacob’s troubled teenage daughter, she starts caring far too much for his gentle ways and steadfast hopes. And when a wrenching secret she must keep comes between them, can Liza find the faith to risk opening her heart again—and reach for one more chance at real love?

My Review

What a sweet redemptive read we find in Liza's Second Chance! As expected in a good Amish novel, the description of our characters and all the tasty Amish treats always get my mind full of the action  going on in our plot (and gets my mouth watering too). We find a couple that have had their own heartaches, and how they react and respond, and find healing in others that care about them, mostly because they show the love of the Lord. We can rest assured that no tragedy comes as a surprise to the Lord, and that all things work together for our good and His glory. I found the characters very just raw and real, and also very clearly described. The characters were easily relatable to everyday life and hurts even though they were Amish. I wanted to be good friends with all our characters! The Lord's love truly is the only one that can fill all those hurts and betrayals, and He uses others that are impacted by His love to reach us in our despair a lot of times. Sweet, realistic, full of heart, and redemptive- don't miss Liza's Second Chance!

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are my own.

Guest Post from Molly Jebber

Here’s a little about Liza’s story: Hello Friends, I loved writing about Liza. She has a lot to overcome in this book, but her faith in God, and compassion for others helps her to arrive at her decisions through difficult and happy times. I enjoyed visiting Charm, and it makes for a good setting for this story. The bakery is fun with all the sugary pies, pastries, and breads. The unique customers, and the place where friends are made, and where trouble happens. Most of all, I hope I’ve done a good job entertaining you as you read “Liza’s Second Chance”.
