Product Description

After inheriting her great-aunt's failing yarn shop, Lilly Barnes is determined to make it a success. All she wants is stability, something she doesn't think possible in the small town of Corinthia, Georgia. Then Pastor Daniel Foreman rents space in her store to hold meetings for his growing congregation, and this proves to be her lifeline. At first Lilly wants nothing to do with Daniel's big dreams, but she soon finds herself starting to share his goals. Yet trouble between her customers and his congregation make them both doubt the path they're on. That is, until practical Lilly shows him that love is a risk worth taking.

    I've read all of Missy Tippens books. And "Georgia Sweethearts" is the most serious and hard edged. In her first books, Missy's voice was notable for expressing love for her reader. It was unique and why I so enjoy her writing. Her last book upped the ante adding a great touch of reality and this I believe made the book a finalist for a RITA (romance's highest award).

    "Georgia Sweethearts" has gone even further into realism. There are sad events in this book. Much of the warm fuzzies found in the first four books are replaced with the way things really are. This makes good Stienbeck but I missed my sea of good feelings. Of course, I read romances for how they make me feel. Why not? I know how they end. I'm guaranteed a happy ending. Does "Georgia Sweethearts" have a happy ending. Of course and it's even happier given the sad events that were encountered along the path to redemption. Given this: many readers may find this the most rewarding Tippens book yet. That's for each reader to decide.

    The story is about a preacher who God has called to start churches and then move on to start another. (I never understood why God wants to start new churches when so many existing churches stand half-empty on Sunday morning). The problem is: is this really God's plan or a plan the hero would like God to have given him? How do you tell?

    The heroine is in much the same position. She finds God in this story and thinks He may want her to find a new career in another city. But is God really talking to her or is she just engaging in wishful thinking?

    And if God's plans are so different for the hero and heroine, then why has God brought them together in this small town at this time?

    Trying to find out what God wants for them and what they want for themselves is the heart of the conflict. This is strong stuff. It makes for deeper reading than I expected. It adds more spiritual realism.

    It's hard to evaluate this book. For many readers it will be a 5 star book. For others, who are more into the old Missy, it might only be a 4-Star. I'm going to doubt my own feelings this one time and give it a 5-Star rating - if just for the exceptional quality of the writing and the eventual, 'well earned', HEA

    Author Missy Tippens did a wonderful job with her contemporary romance, GEORGIA SWEETHEARTS. The characters were very believable and realistic, and there was enough action in the plot without being overwhelming. I especially enjoyed the story's ending---sweet and satisfying! I highly recommend GEORGIA SWEETHEARTS, and look forward to reading more of Missy's books!
