Donna C4 Stars Out Of 5A delightful fictional tale about a real town.June 17, 2019Donna CMore than Words Can Say
More than Words Can Say is a historical fiction set in the late 1800's in Honey Grove, Texas. It is the second book in the Patchwork Family Series, however it can be read as a standalone novel. Karen Witemeyer has written a fictional story about a real town, her details would delight anyone familiar with the town or its history. I enjoyed Abigail Kemp and her determination to keep her inheritance and her family's legacy. She also demonstrated forgiveness and understanding when many would choose another route. Zacharias "Zach" Hamilton has already sacrificed to raise a family once, but finds himself drawn to Abigail and want to not only save her legacy but save her from a loveless marriage. Zach grew the most as a character to me, he went from a character that confused me to one that I loved. I enjoyed the interaction between the characters, it was entertaining while still being believable. I am looking forward to the concluding novella in the series.
I received a copy of this book from celebrate lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
Melissa4 Stars Out Of 5Perfectly ImperfectJune 17, 2019MelissaQuality: 4Meets Expectations: 4I'm loving this series. The main thing I love is that Karen doesn't have perfect looking heroines. In the first book Evie had mismatched eyes, which isn't a big deal now days but apparently back "then" it was a big deal.
In this book Abby is a big more round then your typical character, again this is true to life and how many women are built and feel self-conscious about.
I knew this romance would be hot and it was. Our two characters are thrown together but the romance builds slowly.
There is also a mystery hanging in the air that we know nothing about for a quite awhile, well, you know it exists but we have no idea what it is.
Karen Witemeyer fans will not be disappoint in this latest book and other readers will love discovering a new author.
A copy of this book was given to me through the Celebrate Lit Team. All opinions are my own.

I could not put this book down. I loved the characters of Abby, Zach and Rosalind. They had an interesting start to the beginning of their family. Both Abigail and Zach needed to let some past transgressions go so they could start their own lives. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Hookmeinabook4 Stars Out Of 5Another great book by Karen Witemeyer!!June 16, 2019HookmeinabookQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is the second book in the Patchwork Family series and although it's part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. I've read the first book in the series (More Than Meets the Eye) and would strongly recommend reading it as well because it gives more insight into Zach's past and it helps you understand the weight of his burden and his guilt. (its also a fantastic book!!) I loved the characters and the chemistry between Zach and Abby is great! I like that the Abby wasn't a skinny model, but that she had some insecurities about her weight and appearance (which most of us can relate to) and when she finally discovers that she is perfect just the way God made her and that Zach __________ (Whoops, almost gave a story spoiler!) is one of the best parts in the book. The other amazing part was when the characters discover the amazing power of forgiveness and the joy that comes from knowing the Lord has forgiven you. There were a lot of romantic moments and scenes, but there was nothing graphic or inappropriate. Overall, it was not my favorite book by her (which would be incredibly hard to choose because all her books are AMAZING) but, it was a great book and has definitely made it on my "Must Read" list. Overall I rate the story 4 out of 5 stars!****
