JustRead Tours Blog Tour: Shelter in the Storm by Laurel Blount

Shelter in the Storm JustRead Blog + Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Shelter in the Storm by Laurel Blount, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

Shelter in the Storm
Title: Shelter in the Storm 
Series: Johns Mill Amish Romance #1 
Author: Laurel Blount 
Publisher: Berkley Books 
Release Date: May 25, 2021 
Genre: Christian Contemporary/Amish Romance 

In this moving Amish romance, two broken hearts find hope in each other after a terrible loss.

Unspeakable tragedy strikes the Amish hamlet of Johns Mill when an unstable Englischer opens fire in the Hochstedler's General Store. In the aftermath, and under the media's spotlight, Joseph Hochstedler struggles to hold his shattered family together, drawing unexpected comfort from a faithful childhood friend. 

Born with a serious heart defect, optimist Naomi Schrock has always longed to live a life of service. She rolls up her sleeves, determined to help Joseph cope with this terrible crisis. But dare she hope that his friendship will finally deepen into love? 

As the media's obsession with the Hochstedler shooting escalates, Joseph and Naomi find themselves caught between tradition and compromise, lingering sorrows and uncertain hopes. And in the end, two people who've already lost far too much must find the courage to trust their hearts one last time.

Amish Fiction is my Ultimate Favorite Genre of books to read. I have read a couple books by Laurel Blount and was excited to hear about a new series of Amish Fiction by her. Shelter in the Storm is Book 1 in the Johns Mill Amish Romance. 

An Englischer enters the Hochstedler's General Store and begins shooting. Joseph Hochstedler,owner of the General Store, struggles greatly after the shooting with being supportive for his family with the death of a family member in the shooting. The family is trying to grieve in private, but the Media is making that impossible. Naomi Schrock is a lifelong friend of Joseph Hochstedler and she wants to help them through this family tragedy. Naomi has suffered from a heart issue since childhood, but has always wanted to be of service to others. Naomi and Joseph find themselves attracted to one another, Naomi even noticing she is "in love" with Joseph. Will Naomi being present, help Joseph and his family with their loss? Will Naomi and Joseph begin more then a friendship? 

A VERY sweet Romance story! I truly enjoyed this book. It was filled with Twists and Turns, just as I thought the story was going one way, it changed! I LOVE a book that is very unpredictable. I also enjoyed how Naomi and Joseph had a nurturing friendship that seemed to blossom as Naomi was being a helper to the family. A WONDERFUL Amish Fiction Book! A book that anyone will enjoy!
