Reviewed by Tracey Quintin originally for Goodreads
This is the 2nd story I've read by Maeve Christopher and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed!
While the beginning was slow, I could tell it was building my knowledge of the characters and setting. Then WHAM, the story really picks up with many twists and turns. It leaves you guessing who is "good", who is "bad" and what is going to happen next?! I'm looking forward to reading more in the next book to find out not only how some things turn out but how some people turn out. I did a gasp when I came to the end and said to myself "No! I want more!".
The story is filled with strong spirituality and was refreshingly a sweet, clean read.
I love the idea of The Golden Bowl, the charitable work that Annie does and how you can see how paying it forward, helping others, is such an amazing thing to do!
Loved that some of the characters from the author's prior series are in this story.
This story reinforced for me, "let it be" and "it is what it is".
I now wish I could visit Marberry, Maine, the restaurant (especially the bakery!) and see these folks in person.
Great job Maeve Christopher! I think everyone will thoroughly enjoy this story and recommend all read it!
