Book Review - Firestorm by Laura Hilton + Giveaway

The Behrs moved from a bustling Amish community in Ohio to the desolate and cold Upper Peninsula of Michigan after an incident with a stalker. Her father, Hosea buys a home which is currently inhabitable. The family is forced to reside in a RV, while their home is being rebuilt. Bridget is hoping for a fresh start. But, when the overly friendly Amish man who lives next door starts flirting with her, she has a hard time trusting him. She believes, he is a serial womanizer who takes home a new girl every week.

Gabriel Lapp was exiled from his Florida community because there wasn't enough work to keep him from trouble. His father wants Gabe to settle down and start a family. When the Behrs move next door and need help with the construction of their home, Gabe jumps to the chance of helping. However, the pair like each other but, fear that the other person wants something else. Will they realize there is more to each than they realize?

I found the book a fun read. I like reading the portions with Bridget's father and Gabe. Each character had their own faults and wants but, had a hard time following their hearts.  I didn't like that Bridget and Gabe were going back and forth about dating each other. Overall, a great read especially for fans of the genre.
**Disclosure - I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion**

About the Book

Title: Firestorm
Author: Laura Hilton
Genre: Christian Amish
Release Date: July, 2018

Bridget Behr and her family migrate from the bustling Amish community where she grew up in Ohio to the mostly unpopulated Upper Peninsula of Michigan after a stalker breaks into their home. While her father and brother try to find work in the area, the family is forced to reside in a borrowed RV until the house and barn are rebuilt. While Bridget is hoping for a fresh start, she’s afraid to trust anyone—even Gabriel, the overly-friendly Amish man who lives nearby. Bridget thinks he’s a flirt who serial dates and doesn’t even remember the girls’ names.

Due to not enough construction work in his Florida community to keep him out of trouble, Gabriel Lapp has been sent to Michigan to work. His father is desperate for his son to settle down. When the family walks into Gabe’s home in the middle of a thunderstorm and he discovers their circumstances, he offers to help with construction. For Gabe, the beautiful girl he teasingly calls “the recluse” once he discovers she doesn’t attend youth events, confuses him like none other.

As Gabriel and Bridget grow closer, they realize there is more to a person than meets the eye. Just as Bridget is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding love, tragedy strikes. Now Bridget and her family must decide if they should move to another Amish community, or dare to fight for the future they’d hoped for in Mackinac County.
