    1. Shelley Shepard Gray has done it again! What a wonderfully sweet, romantic, fun read!!! A return trip to Pinecraft, FL lets us catch up with old friends and make some new ones. There was an Amish spin on the Brady Bunch with an Amish widow with three young girls and an Amish widower with three boys. Add in one misbehaving beagle and laughs abound in this well-told tale of moving on while remembering the past.I immediately felt connected to the characters in this book. They were so genuine and re [...]


    2. Shelley Shepard Gray is a fabulous writer and one of my favorites. A WEDDING AT THE ORANGE BLOSSOM INN is exactly why I devour her books. I always feel good when I'm reading her stories. There are recipes included and to me, that is like an added gift. I always love returning to Pinecraft and this story was no exception. I love how Shelley keeps us up to date with our favorite characters and introduces us to new friends in each book in this wonderful series. The characters all seem to real and b [...]


    3. I enjoyed reading A WEDDING A THE ORANGE BLOSSOM INN and getting to know the cast of characters. There are several different romances in this one book and it was a guess who was getting married! Beverly and Eric who's been an ongoing romance since the first book, Emma and Jay who were the main, main characters, or Ben and Tricia who are a new young romance. I enjoyed the dog, but think Emma could've solved all her dog problems by investing in a good leash, or even a crate! But Frankie was a dear [...]


    4. Let’s travel back to beautiful Pinecraft, Florida once again. I love visiting there and watching all the shenanigans of the resident’s pets. They are really quite funny. We’ve seen the trouble that pesky cat Serena has caused. Now she has some competition from a loveable, overweight beagle named Frankie. Frankie is hilarious!Frankie belongs to widow Emma Keim and her three young daughters. He has a great love for pizza and somehow manages to escape the yard and always finds some.Staying at [...]


    5. This is my favorite book I've read this year.I've been a huge fan of the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series and in this third book, I have become an even bigger fan!Shelley Shephard Gray has created some of the most heartwarming and unforgettable characters that will make you laugh and at times make you cry.Emma Keim and her three young daughters stole my heart from the very beginning, as did Jay Hilty and his three sons. Then there's Frankie! Frankie is without a doubt a sneak, a troublemaker and [...]


    6. A Delightfully fun story with a very special lovable dog that takes center stage. This is a third book in this wonderful series. Although the books can stand alone. It is helpful to read them in order. Some of the characters are introduced in the first two books. One of the things that was especially wonderful about this book is the spiritual thread. I could so relate to praying before you speak especially in delicate situations. I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an h [...]


    7. I didn't enjoy this book as much as the previous books. I liked the story of Emma and Jay, but I didn't like the story of Ben and Tricia. I think it's because I like the former couple but not the latter. Also, I like that the relationship between Beverly and Eric progressed in this book. Although, I was hoping for more of their story in this book. The next one should give me what I want, though.


    8. I was so excited to get the next book in the series to review because I loved the first two books a ton. A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn: Amish Brides of Pinecraft, Book Three (The Pinecraft Brides) by Shelley Shepard Gray was the next in the series that I was waiting for!! Beloved bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray returns with the third book in her Amish Brides of Pinecraft series—a story of second chances for two young single parentsd the wedding that brings them together.Emma Keim [...]


    9. I was so excited to get this book that I immediately sat down and began reading it. Pinecraft, Florida is definitely on my Bucket List, because each time I read one of Shelley Shepard Gray's novels using that as a setting, it makes me not only want to visit, but possibly live there. The characters she has breathed life into makes you want to see for yourself how hospitable, warm and loving this community of Amish truly is. While the place is real, we know that the characters are just the ones we [...]


    10. A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn by Shelley Shepard Gray is a sweet tale about new beginnings and the growth of an unexpected budding romance. Gray brings her readers another endearing Amish story that makes the plays a wonderful song on our heart strings. If you love all things Amish, weddings, and fun characters that fill the pages of a story then look no further than A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn. My Thoughts Shelley Gray is a splendid writer, and it is always a joy and pleasure to r [...]


    11. Frankie! Oh Frankie! I find myself being thankful I do not own a beagle. Ha Ha! Frankie steals the show in the third book of the Brides of Pinecraft series. I think he is personally misunderstood but most label him as a trouble maker. He resides with widow Emma Keim and her 3 little girls Lena, Mandy, and Annie. Emma is busy taking care of her girls and baking treats part time for local inn owners so she doesn't have much spare time to take long walks. Frankie gets bored from time to time and de [...]


    12. I loved this book and got so involved in the lives here in Pinecraft Florida, a real renewal in relationships with promises of more to come. Yeah, there is another book coming real soon, October 13, 2015, A Christmas Bride in Pinecraft, only problem it is the end of this series.We first met Tricia when she arrived unannounced at the Orange Blossom Inn, her Aunt Beverly is the manager there, and we find out about the hard time she had that made her leave her Ohio home and travel to Florida. She f [...]


    13. This story was such fun to read! It flowed smoothly and moved quickly, as the other books in the series have done. I really am enjoying this series set in Pinecraft, FL.This book has so many humorous moments, mostly involving Frankie the beagle, and I had fun reading about his exploits. Another enjoyable aspect of this book is that there are a few different story lines that build throughout it. The reader continues to watch the friendship build between Beverly and Eric. This is an ongoing thread [...]


    14. “A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn” is the third book in the series, Amish Brides of Pinecraft by Shelley Shepard Gray. Emma Keim and her three daughters are once again off in search of their carefree beagle, Frankie. He has a nose that can smell a pizza from many blocks away. The search for Frankie ends at the Orange Blossom Inn, where he has ruined a pizza that belonged to Jay Hilty. Jay and his three boys have moved from Ohio to Florida in hopes of starting a new life after his wife pas [...]


    15. Shelley Shepard Gray did it again – she made me happy, made me sad, made me laugh quite a bit (oh Frankie!), and made me cry (several tissues alert). A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn is just the sweetest story taking place back in Pinecraft and at Beverly’s inn (or should I say Eric’s). Young love between Ben & Tricia, new love between a widow and widower, love of two overly concerned parents for their daughter, a very hungry and mischievous beagle, a frog, pizza, familiar faces fro [...]


    16. The latest adventure in Pinecraft is brought to us by our beloved author, Shelley Shephard Gray, called “A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn: Amish Brides of Pinecraft, Book 3.” Pinecraft has brought us such special families and wonderful new friends. This book is no different. It reminded me of my favorite show growing up: “The Brady Bunch”. We meet two special families. Both have lost either a mom or dad and are struggling to overcome their grief and continue to raise their lovely fami [...]


    17. Captivating! A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn, By: Shelley Shepard GreyWelcome back to Pinecraft Florida and the Orange Blosson Inn. This is book three in the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series. This was such a wonderfully, delightful book. I so loved catching up with the characters that we know and love from this series and getting to meet the new ones also. Shelley has a way of creating characters that are so real and lifelike that you actually feel as though you are part of the story. I didn [...]


    18. Every installment of Shelley Shepard Gray’s Amish Brides of Pinecraft series is better than the one before! In “A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn,” we are introduced to Emma Keim, a widow raising three young daughters, and Jay Hilty, a widower raising three sons. Will Emma and Jay continue to hold on to their memories of the past, or will they be willing to trust in each other for a second chance at love? I love that this story focuses on the real difficulties of finding love again, and [...]


    19. What a way to open a book. A beagle on the loose and what an introduction between a widow and a widower. Engaging from the first sentence. And not one but two love stories to savor. Pinecraft calls to my heart. What a wonderful place. The people all care about one another. For me, the best part is relationship development. As I get to know the characters, I feel as though I am part of something so very special. Life is looked at as "In God's Hands" and reliance on Him is best. No matter what, ev [...]


    20. A Really Good Read!Two lonely people- a man and a woman, both widowed and raising children on their own. This is a beautiful story of these two plus a romance with one of the children that turns into planning for their wedding. And as Emma and Jay start to take an interest in each other, Emma's family is very interfering. How true that is in today's standards. And that interference can work either way, towards or away from the person you cared about. Adventure with Frankie is hilarious since I f [...]


    21. A wedding at Orange blossom innAbsolutely amazingDon't wait another minute to dive in to this book! As you might already know the orange blossom is one beautiful place and even prettier decorated for a wedding. You will meet Emma and Jay and their kinner, you will get to visit with Beverly and Tricia and lots of others. You will meet one character in particular named Frankie. Frankie is a bit ornery but one can't help to fall for him! Shelley puts her heart in all of her books and this one is no [...]


    22. It is truly a joy to see how much love and excitement Shelley Shepard Gray can pack into each book. By now we all love returning to Pinecraft to see what her characters are up to. Emma has very real feelings to explore as her relationship with Jay and his three boys continues to evolve. However she faces opposition from her family. Other relationships are also growing! The animal pose both difficulties and add spice. I love the way her characters interact and their lives are woven together, this [...]


    23. I just love the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series and A Wedding At the Orange Blossom Inn is one of my favorites. Lovable characters, a quirky beagle, a widower and widow each with 3 children makes for a lot of activity. This is a feel-good book of Amish friendship, family and love.


    24. Such an endearing book. Frankie the beagle was a hoot. I just loved the story and the characters. The narrator gave an excellent performance. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

    28. Reviewed at The Power of Words: bit/1Wjm30VShelley Shepard Gray has a gift for making not only characters, but setting, come alive in this Amish Brides of Pinecraft series. Pinecraft, the small Amish community in the heart of Sarasota, Florida, offers a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere – and worship takes place in an Amish church rather than in their own homes. From ice cream at Olaf’s to pie at Yoder's, Shelley has made this community come alive. It is delightful to see characters from the prev [...]
