How Sweet It Is

(Lagacy of Faith, #3)

By Robin Lee Hatcher
Christian Contemporary Romance
Paperback, Audiobook and ebook, 304 Pages
July 14th 2020 by Thomas Nelson

He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they’re really looking for.

Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.

Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father, the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.

Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.

After pulling the car into the garage, Holly turned off the engine. Then she sat there, unmoving, waiting for enough energy to open the door. It didn’t happen for a long while.
She’d always been an independent kind of girl. Even in her relationships with others, she’d never been afraid to make her own way or to have a mind of her own. She had her faith, too, trusting in God’s guidance. But when it came to Sweet Caroline’s, had she listened to His voice, or had she relied on her own wants and desires? Why had He let it come to this? To the point where she could lose it all? If it all came crumbling down, if she lost her home, too, how would she support herself? She couldn’t launch a catering business after this. No one would give her a loan. And even if they would, if she lost her home, too, she wouldn’t have a kitchen to cook in. She had no reserves. It felt as if the dream was dying a second death.
She took a deep breath and released it slowly. At least she’d received some good news about Willow. Her young friend was expected to leave the hospital next week. The use of her arms would be limited for a while to come, and her wounds would need tender care, but at least she could heal in a more homelike environment. At Lighthouse, the other women would tend to her and love on her. Maybe AJ could visit her there, if it wouldn’t upset him too much to leave again.
Another deep breath, and Holly was ready to get out of the car and go inside.
When she closed the side door of the garage, she appreciated how easily it moved since Jed had repaired it. Reminded of him, she wondered how his day had been. Was AJ happy, staying with the uncle he barely knew? Did Jed look anything like Chris, making the child feel some measure of comfort?
I can’t think about him. I can’t. Let it go. Let him go.
Only two days had passed since she’d admitted to herself that, like it or not, she was falling for Jed, but it seemed a lifetime ago. So much had happened in those two days. She hardly felt like the same woman who’d stared at her reflection in the dressing-room mirror and reminded herself that she wanted to see life as a cup half full. But her life wasn’t half full. It was empty . . . because she’d trusted where she shouldn’t trust, because she saw what she wanted to see, not what was true.
She huffed out a breath of air as she moved on.
Inside, Pumpkin welcomed her home with a loud meow. After setting aside her purse, Holly picked up the cat and buried her face in the feline’s long hair.
“Sweetheart, what am I going to do?”
Pumpkin answered with a purr.
You never lie to me, do you? You’re just who you say you are.
She carried the cat with her into the living room, stopping long enough to turn on the lamp before settling onto the sofa.
“I’m at the end. I don’t know what to do. God, I need Your help. There’s no hope without You.”
