This was a likable surprise for me. At first, when I sat down to read, I thought it started off a bit slow, but once I pushed past the first few pages, I fell in love with Grassy Valley, Hilltop Church and Alex!!! I loved how Judy Baer made the main character solely a male character. Usually, when you read a book, it is about a female character with a male character secondary. Nope. Not this time! She made Alex’s sweet, lovable character the man character and boy, was he awesome!
The plot line was interesting. A single 42 year old man received the “calling” to become a preacher. Well, once he did that he received a second “calling” from the call committee of Grassy Valley to preach at their two churches in Hilltop. So, once again, he did that. Only he wasn’t sure what to expect when him and his nephew arrived, in this, um, well, small little town. Boy, was that city guy in for a treat! Through some laugh out loud bits and some sweet, tender moments, Judy Baer really captured this reader’s heart. It was an unlikely blessing all the way around, for Alex-who loved to just listen and help his new found friends, for all the ladies of Hilltop who had some one to cook for(this is where the laugh out loud bits come in!) , and for me….the amazed reader who has fallen in love with Hilltop, and of course, Alex’s character! Oh, and did I mention that Twinkle Toes???? She’s a character that you’ll love!
Well done, Judy! This is a book worthy of recommendation and 4 stars. It is one that I will keep on my book shelf for some time to come, as well as, I will be anxiously awaiting more Guideposts books in this sweet series!
