Promise at Pebble Creek by Lisa Jones Baker

49807152. sx318 sy475


Amish country girl Hannah Lapp lives for adventure—the kind found in favorite novels and the stories she secretly writes. And at her family’s popular tourist store, she’s fascinated by the different Englischers she meets. Especially when Marcus Jackson comes to town. She’s sure there’s more to the ex-city boy than his quiet, helpful ways, and she’s curious to find out just what it is . . .

Marcus fled Chicago before his brothers’ life of crime ruined his future. He’s not sure exactly why God’s plan brought him to this quaint little town. Or why his growing friendship with the bubbly, inquisitive Hannah has him trusting her with his past. But when local stores are robbed and suspicion falls on Marcus, can he and Hannah come together to prove his innocence—and make their own happy-ever-after ending?


I just love Lisa Jones Baker and her Pebble Creek stories!

Hannah is a thoughtful young woman and I really enjoyed her outlook on life.
I definitely love her because she's a reader just like me!
I also loved her wisdom on church people.
Not all church members are perfect and neither are the uppity ones who think they are better than others.
Marcus is another great main character.
And Oh my!! His personality is just the sweetest and kindest thing!
I sort of thought that he was over excited about certain things in the book however but still....I know that God will use him just as He does all of his children.
I loved this book immensely! It's a great way to end an awesome series although I am sad to see it end because I did make friends.
But I can revisit from time to time.
All the characters are truly beautiful and flawed. We all are. It's what I love about redemption and forgiveness and honesty all wrapped up into one.
Here is one of Old Sam's Proverbs that was mentioned from Hannah's mom and it goes like this " Love's power to forgive is stronger than hate's power to get even."
And I love this one e even more from Hannah's mom "Because Jesus died on the cross so we could all be forgiven and have eternal life."
Sometimes things happen in life that we don't have control over and then we forget to ask God what we should do. But then,we get angry at Him because of what happened.
I just couldn't put this book down!
Baker has really outdone herself on this one!
She even adds just a little bit of mystery to keep things that much more interesting!!
I highly recommend this book.
My thanks to the author for a complimentary copy of this book.

I was NOT required to write a positive review of this book. All opinions are my own
