Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Every town has one, do you know who your's is?July 1, 2014Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are only two Widows left in the group that used to be six in the town of Butternut Creek, Miss Birdie and Mercedes. They have been with the town of Butternut Creek since what seems like its creation and things don't happen here that either of them are not aware of. So when Adam Joseph Jordan comes to town as their new pastor, Miss Birdie knows she is going to have more than her hands full trying to train this one as young as he is. Miss Birdie and the town of Butternut Creek like things the way they have always been and to say that they are more than resistant to change would be a drastic understatement. When Adam takes up residence in the parsonage, he wasn't expecting a large 5 bedroom Victorian home and he certainly doesn't have even enough to fill one closet. Armed with a small TV, a sleeping bag and a couple bags of clothes, Miss Birdie realizes she has her work cut out for her.
Adam soon understands that by offering him such a large home, they had expected him to fill it with a wife and children. They certainly didn't expect a young single man who has no desire to find a wife and start a family. But that was before he met the Widows. The very next morning they arranged for furniture to be delivered and set up in the parsonage. Miss Birdie makes it a habit to set aside time to meet with Adam to ensure the hymns he selects go hand in hand with what the town likes, not new songs that no one knows. As gracious as he can be Adam understands that Miss Birdies "suggestions" are meant to help, not as a means of training up a new pastor in the way the town expects him to act.
Now all they have to do is find just the right person for Adam to marry and things will begin to fall in order. But with single women in short supply that are young enough presents a problem in the town of Butternut Creek and soon Adam will be dodging more than just miscellaneous notes from Miss Birdie. While the matchmaking continues, the Widows have another issue, long time resident Sam Peterson has returned as an amputee from the war and is struggling to find purpose living in his aunt's old home now that he has inherited it. He certainly doesn't consider himself a hero leaving his fellow Marines behind that couldn't make it home and he doesn't want any pity from anyone. He simply wants to be left alone. But when he notice his physical therapist isn't persuaded by his good looks, there might just be a spark left in Sam's heart after all. Now the Widow's really have their work cut out for them.
I received The Welcome Committee of Butternut Creek by Jane Myers Perrine compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions are strictly my own. This is the first novel in the Butternut Creek series, and I have read The Matchmakers of Butternut Creek before I got this one. I was so honored to be invited back to the town of Butternut Creek because I believe we all know someone who is like Miss Birdie in our own towns. They are well-meaning but determined and set in their ways to help make things right even if they haven't been asked. They don't like to be told they're wrong even though the have the very best of intentions, they simply want to feel like they are still a contribution and not someone who simply needs to relax and grow old. I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars and now can't wait to read the third novel in this series, The Wedding Planners of Butternut Creek!
cricketGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5November 13, 2012cricketGender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1The author writes a good story, but it doesn't qualify for Christian fiction because of the unnecessary bad language she chose to use. I don't appreciate having to read those words. The book would have fit better in a secular market. When I purchase Christian fiction from CBD, I expect it to be just that.

IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5Lots of great charactersApril 9, 2012IreneUnited StatesQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4What a town! With many story lines this book is full and overflowing with characters. I enjoyed how the characters were all intertwined and the stories overlapped. I did not like the slow parts and felt there were parts in the story that were just too wordy!
The story takes place around a new minister who comes to town and the ladies of the church who decide to play matchmaker. The other stories are all well written as well as this one and you will find yourself drawn to the interesting story lines. The characters themselves will probably remind you of people you know or at least you will feel like they could be!
I liked the authors friendly writing style. I do think parts of the book could have been taken out and it would not have taken anything away from the story. That said, it was a fun story with memorable characters so I gave this book 4/5 stars.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
