A Search For Redemption

Title: A Search for Redemption
Secrets of Bliss Valley #3
Author: Jo Ann Brown
Publisher: Love Inspired Trade 
Release Date: August 23, 2022 
Genre: Amish-inspirational romance

Bestselling author Jo Ann Brown returns to the Amish community of Bliss Valley, where finding a new beginning means facing the past…

After losing both her fiancé and the happy life she anticipated, Amish maedel Grace Coffman is still stitching the pieces of her life back together. But between working in a quilting shop with an unscrupulous Englisch boss and caring for her ill parents, her threads keep unraveling. At first, the arrival of a kind, attractive stranger feels like a coincidence. But the more Grace learns about Joel Beachy and his story, the more their meeting seems like providence… 

 Joel's return to Bliss Valley—and the Plain people—is his last chance to redeem a life filled with missteps. Yet in Grace, Joel finds something he never imagined: trust, courage, and even the possibility of hope. When Grace suddenly finds herself the guardian of her nephews, Joel sees an opportunity to keep two wayward boys from repeating his mistakes. But Joel's dark past isn't quite finished with him. And now he must pray that his new life is strong enough to withstand the pending storm of trouble…and secrets.

“Brown is a gifted writer who makes unforgettable characters that invite the reader to join them on their journey.” —Publishers Weekly bestselling author Marie E. Bast

Amish Fiction is my favorite Genre of all time to read. A Search for Redemption by Jo Ann Brown is Book 3 in the Secrets of Bliss Valley series. I have had the honor of reading the first 2 books in this series and was anxiously awaiting the release of Book 3. 

Grace Coffman is still mourning the loss of her fiancé and dreams of what could have been for them. She does enjoy her job at the local Quilt Shop, but her boss is not exactly a nice person to work with. Grace is also the caregiver for her parents, as they are older in life. Joel Beachy returns to Bliss Valley after spending time in Jail. He is not cordially welcomed back into town, but Grace feels that she would like to get to know him. Grace learns of Joel's story and she is now thinking that his coming back to Bliss Valley was a "God Send" and meant to be. Joel sees how much Grace loves her family, especially when she becomes a caregiver to her 2 nephews. Joel sees this as an opportunity to nurture the boys from a male perspective in hopes they don't make life mistakes as he did. Joel feels that his past might creep up and destroy what the future could hold for him. Will Joel be able to move forward without the past dictating his future happiness? Will there be a Romance between Joel and Grace? 

WOW, I have to say that this book was probably my favorite in the series! I was reeled into this storyline from the very first few pages. The author does a great job at connecting the Characters to each other and to the story. Grace seems to be a forgiving person who wants to move forward in life. The kindness she shows to Joel and being a caregiver to her parents and nephews is remarkable. Joel is a person who feels he has a lot to prove after his troubled past. The people of Bliss Valley know his past and are not too quick to welcome him home. The friendship formed between Grace and Joel is beautiful. This book is one of Forgiveness, facing the past, and moving forward, one of redemption. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish Fiction. FANTASTIC BOOK!!
