Sweeter Than Honey by Kelly Irvin Shattering a jar of pickled beets isn't the impression Isabella hopes to make on her first trip to the local Combination Store of Bee County, Texas.

As she soon learns, though, Will's heart has been broken one too many times. And now, for some reason, Isabella finds herself determined to be the one to repair that broken heart and renew his faith in love.

Rebekah Lantz feels imprisoned by circumstances she didn't create. Tobias Byler is haunted by regret. Can two young runaways from half a world away teach them the healing power of true family? Rebekah isn't like her sister who left the Amish faith, but the watchful gaze of her family and small, close-knit Amish community makes her feel as if she's been judged and found lacking. The men avoid her and the women whisper behind her back. She simply longs for the same chance to be a wife and mother that her friends have. Tobias Byler only wants to escape feelings for a woman he knows he should never have allowed to get close to him. Moving with his family to isolated Bee County, Texas, seemed the best way to leave his mistakes behind. But even a move across the country can't erase the past that accompanies his every thought. A surprise encounter with two half-starved runaway children forces Rebekah and Tobias to turn to each other to help a sister and brother who have traveled thousands of miles in search of lives of unfettered peace and joy. In doing so, Rebekah and Tobias discover the key to forgetting the past is the one that will open the door to love and the future they both seek.

Love and Other Mistakes

Love and Other Mistakes

Author: Jessica Kate Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/08/2019

Jessica Kate's hilarious, romantic debut novel proves that some mistakes-including love-are begging to be made again and again. Natalie Groves once had big dreams. But soon after her fiance, Jeremy Walters, inexplicably broke off their engagement and left town, her father was diagnosed with cancer. Now tasked with keeping her family afloat, Natalie's grand plans have evaporated . . . and God feels very far away. Fast-forward seven years, and Jeremy is back in Charlottesville with an infant son and years of regrets. When his niece, Lili, lands on his doorstep in need of a place to stay, Jeremy needs help-and fast. An internship opening finally presents Natalie a chance at her dream job, but she needs a second income to work around it-and the only offer available is Jeremy's. They could be the solutions to one another's problems, provided they don't kill each other in the process. When they join forces, sparks fly. But they both know there's a thin line between love and hate . . . and that love will turn out to be the best decision-or the biggest mistake-of all. A stunning debut . . . This tale of love and redemption will stay with you long after you've closed the book. A must-read. -Rachel Hauck, New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress Witty. Charming. Heartfelt. I could go on and on about Jessica Kate's debut novel. From its highly relatable characters to its pitch-perfect dialogue, Love and Other Mistakes is a delightful, romantic read filled with just the right amount of sass. I lost count of the number of times I laughed out loud as I watched Natalie and Jem navigate their relationships, careers, and faith. Definitely one of the most enjoyable books I've read lately, and I can't wait to see what's next from Jessica Kate! -Melissa Tagg, Carol Award-winning author of Now and Then and Always and the Walker Family series Love and Other Mistakes wraps a poignant and warm look at relationships within a smart, sly, and knowing comedic voice. Readers of Sally Thorne and Bethany Turner will be immediately at home with Natalie: an all-too-real heroine who balances whip-smart agency with an endearing vulnerability and whose intersection with long-lost Jeremy helps her forge a path to confidence and discover the woman she was always meant to be. Kate's unputdownable debut recognizes that all human relationships-familial, friendship, romantic-are worth the keen eye and clever insight of her talented pen. -Rachel McMillan, author of the Van Buren and DeLuca Mysteries If you're looking for a story with sass on top of style, or a fresh voice pumped full of fun, you need to read Love and Other Mistakes. Then after you've enjoyed this-and I'm confident you will-make a date with whatever this exciting new author writes next! -David Rawlings, author of The Baggage Handler
