About the Book:
Running a dairy farm is a big job, but doing it alone is almost impossible.

When her dad dies, Emily must work hard to save the family farm, but she manages. Until the day the CPA pulls in her drive and announces he’s there to do an audit on the place.

Franklin Reese is appalled at the lack of interest the Cooper women have in the financial end of their livelihood, but he dives in, determined to help them learn. The further he looks into Mr. Cooper’s dealings, however, the more uncomfortable he becomes.

Can he uncover the truth of the situation and still earn the love of the amazing Emily Cooper? Will Franklin’s addiction to alcohol keep them apart, even after the farm is taken care of? Only God can heal hurting hearts and repair broken lives. Will these two let Him in?

My Review:
I read  Cecelia’s first book, John’s Quest, and LOVED that one, so I was excited to get to read this book! And let me tell you…I was not disappointed! Cecelia did another wonderful job with capturing my heart and letting God shine through in her story, Milk Money, book 2 in her upcoming release, Chesapeake Weddings.

Her plot line in this book was outstanding! She tells the story of Emily, who’s father has passed away, leaving her sole proprietor of the family’s dairy farm. But, she soon finds out about Frank, the alcoholic accountant hired to help keep the farm. Cecelia did a wonderful job in pulling reality into this Godly fiction story. She adds just the right amount of twists in the plot to keep you turning page after page, you’re sure to not want the book to end (I know I didn’t!).The characters tugged at my heart and I couldn’t help but pray for them!
I highly recommend this book with 5 stars, for an evening by the fireplace read. It’s full of love and hope and best of all, full of our Loving Heavenly Father shining through Cecelia’s words! Well done, again, Cecelia!
