Publisher's Description

After graduating from Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery in 1910, Charlotte Gregory is ready to stir things up. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to travel, lecture, and give cooking demonstrations on the very latest kitchen revolution--the gas stove--and certainly doesn't mind that the gas company has hired the handsome Lewis Mathis to perform at her lectures. Lewis encourages her work, especially her crusade to introduce fresh, appetizing, nutritious food to those convalescing in hospitals. But young hospital superintendent Dr. Joel Brooks is not convinced any changes should be made--especially by this outspoken young woman.

When Charlotte and Joel are coerced into planning a fund-raising gala for the hospital, will this combustible pair explode?

Fan favorite Lorna Seilstad is back with a breezy, lighthearted love triangle that will keep readers guessing. Attention to historic detail adorns the timeless story of a young woman looking for true love and making her way in a rapidly changing world.

    This review was written for While Love Stirs, Gregory Sisters Series #2.
    This is the second book in the Gregory Sisters historical series. The main character is Charlotte, the middle sister whom we met in the first book, When Love Calls.

    Sparks fly when Charlotte Gregory meets Doctor Joel Brooks and they disagree over nutritious diets for pregnant and nursing women. Joel never learned much about it at medical school, and Charlotte just graduated from Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery, so knows a lot about cooking nutritious meals.

    In fact, she finds a job doing cooking demonstrations for the gas company to promote gas stoves. Anytime they are together, Charlotte and Joel clash, but an attraction is also growing. Can their mutual attraction outweigh their strong personalities? Read the book to find out!

    Although this is the second book in the series, you can read this one without reading the first, but I would suggest reading about Charlotte's older sister in When Love Calls, then reading this one, because I love to read series books in order!

    This book was a gift from the publisher, but this review is my own opinion.

    This review was written for While Love Stirs, Gregory Sisters Series #2.
    This is the second Lorna Seilstad book I've read—the other was her début novel, Making Waves, and I wasn't overly impressed by it. The writing wasn't bad, but I didn't like the heroine at all, and I couldn't stomach the thought of reading further books in the series if she was featured. However, While Love Stirs is part of a new series, so I hoped it would be better.

    It was. While Love Stirs is the story of Charlotte Gregory, recent graduate of Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery. She is seeking employment as a chef (chef = stirs, get it?), but none of the restaurants in St Paul's are interested in hiring a female chef. Charlotte is an intelligent if opinionated woman (which puts her streets ahead of the heroine of Making Waves), with feminist tendencies and she doesn't want to be controlled by any man.

    Joel Brooks is a doctor at the local hospital (this was a little confusing. At first he seemed to be on the maternity ward, then he was looking after a woman with suspected cancer, then a stroke patient). Anyway, he has a run-in with Charlotte about the appropriate diet for a new mother (Charlotte's sister). I didn't like Joel at first because of his pathological need to have complete control over his environment, and I didn't see him getting past that (Freud would have a field day with Joel's OCD). However, but he grew on me as he grew on Charlotte.

    This is actually the second book in The Gregory Sisters series. The first was the story of Charlotte's older sister, attorney Hannah, although you don't need to read the first in order to understand or enjoy this (I hadn't). The writing and research was well done (with a couple of unimportant glitches), and I was impressed by the medical knowledge.

    The minor characters were well written, and while I found characters like Kathleen and Nurse Pierce rather annoying, that was the point. The one character I didn't like was Tessa, Charlotte's younger sister. Tessa was too flighty (partly because she was young, but I didn't realise how young she was because I haven't read the first book).

    I enjoyed While Love Stirs, but it's still not a book I'd bother to reread. I also thought the Christian aspects were too understated (perhaps a reaction to the reviews of Making Waves which suggested it was too preachy). All in all, it's a solid historical Christian romance, but with nothing to make it stand out above all the others in the genre.

    Thanks to Revell and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

    While Love Stirs by Lorna Seilstad is the second book in the The Gregory Sisters series. I really enjoyed the first story, but the second book is even better! Definitely one of the best books I've read this year. It was filled with humor, love, and nuggets of truth to help with our walk with God.

    Charlotte Gregory has just graduated from Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery and is ready to share her new skills with the world, but because she is a woman no one will hire her at a restaurant. When she wins a cooking contest, she is offered a job from the gas company. She'll get to travel around and give demonstrations of the benefits of using a gas stove!

    Dr. Joel Brooks is the youngest assistant director of the hospital who also has a penchant for order when in pops unorderly Charlotte wanting to change how hospital food is made and served to the patients. Her ideas have merit, but there are no funds to fix things anyway and even if there were, he needs all the money he can get for more important things. Charlotte finds Joel irritating to the extreme. Even without the necessary funds, she is sure he could at least let her teach the nurses about food preparation and presentation. Determined to win him over to her way of thinking might just cause more sparks than she bargained for.

    This was a funny, lighthearted story with some deeper moments here and there. One of the best parts of the book is all the facts about cooking. I found it absolutely fascinating and, if you love to bake or cook, you will probably love this novel, too. I can't wait to read the next book about the youngest sister!

    I was given this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Charlotte graduated from Fannie Farmer's school of Cookery and hopes to get a job at a restaurant, but not many people are willing to hire a woman. When the opportunity to work for the gas company and do lectures and demonstrations of the new gas stove she jumps at the chance. Charlotte also wants to teach hospital's better nutrition for patience's yet the hospital superintendent is not interested and sparks fly. When Charlotte's aunt puts her and Joel in charge of a gala for the hospital things really get interesting!

    This is book two of The Gregory Sisters series. I really enjoyed this book.

    What I liked: Charlotte and Joel were both interesting characters and I enjoyed the story. The story had a good plot and well-developed characters which made it an easy read.

    What I did not like: This book was very well written and there was not much I did not like.

    Over all I loved this book and I am looking forward to the third book in the series.

    While Love Stirs starts off slightly humorous . I really did find the book interesting. I loved the character of Charlotte. She is such a strong woman and would not back down from anyone. Charlotte is smart, witty, and fun. I, also, warn the reader that Charlotte is a fantastic cook and there is a lot of reading about her delicious dishes she makes. Every time I had to put the book down, I found myself going for a snack.

    I really did enjoy this book and look forward to more by this author and will go back to reading the first book of the series.

    5 stars.
