Summary (from Amazon):
Ainslee McKay's world is shaken when she discovers her twin sister has not only eloped with a man she barely knows but now Ainslee must fulfill their obligation at a tile works in Weston, West Virginia. Ainslee must learn the ropes and, if she can keep the tile works profitable, her brother will help her sell the business. When Levi Judson arrives and shows Ainslee his designs for new tiles, she's impressed by his skill and passion for the business. But he's hiding his true reason for coming to Weston. And Ainslee knows he'd be crushed to learn his plans for a long career at McKay Tile Works are in vain since she intends to sell. Can the growing feelings between them survive if the truth comes to light--or is a future together as untenable as the future of the tile works itself?
I've enjoyed each of the books in this series that I've read. While it is a series, each stands alone, and can be read out of order. One of the things that I've really enjoyed about this series is the detail that is shown whether it is making pottery or making tiles.
I loved how Ainslee had to figure out who she is without her twin sister around. I also loved how compassionate she is. Her relationship with Levi was fun to watch as well. His secrets weren't really all that of a surprise, honestly. I expected it.
But overall, seeing the McKay family again was fun. And seeing how they come full circle was also nice.
I received this book for free from Bethany House for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
