Love Everlasting by Tracie Peterson

So I just finished reading Tracie Peterson's newest book, Love Everlasting. It is the story of Abrianna Cunningham,a 21 year old girl that has grown up in a bridal finishing school run by her 3 aunts.  Since she the day she came to the school, She has been friends with Wade Ackerman, The boy next door.  Now that she has turned 21, She has found that her feelings for Wade have changed and that somehow she had fallen in love with her best friend! Thankfully Wade feels the same way and proposes to Abrianna., Even after the wedding proposal, a rejected suitor named Priam Welby (Welby for short)  decides that he will not let Abrianna marry Wade because she will be marrying him. Despite being rejected several times , He is determined to make her marry him at all costs, Not because he loves her but because she is a "challenge" to him. Meanwhile Abrianna is having doubts about marrying Wade, She is worried that she will not be a good enough wife because She did not pay attention to her homemaking classes at school, and she can't cook. but under the good counsel of her Father and her Aunts, She is reassured that Wade will love her no matter what, especially since he knows her better then anyone else because they have been best friends since childhood.  Welby is looking for anyway to get to Abrianna and realizes that the only way to her is through her family, So he sees the opportunity and has her father beaten and arrested, Then he has Wade thrown in jail and falsely accused of murder. So Welby approaches Abrianna and tells her the only way that her family will be released from jail and not hung for murder will be if she agrees to marry him.  She still refuses and he tells her that he will not only have Wade and her father killed but then he will cause harm to fall on her Aunts and her friends to. Abrianna fears for her family's safety and agrees to marry Welby if he will get her father  and Wade out of jail and if he will leave her family alone. So Welby agrees and has the wedding set for a month later on October 19th and Abrianna attempts to convince everyone that she is in love with Welby.  As the Wedding day approaches, Abrianna does not see any way out of this mess that she has gotten into,  Will God help her to get out of this mess or will she be forever stuck with a madman for a husband? Will Wade ever forgive her for breaking his heart?
Guess you will have to read the book to find out!

I loved this book!  I read this book as a stand alone, It is book 3 of the Brides of Seattle series. While it was a great book by itself, I would recommend reading the other books prior to reading this one because I got lost during some parts of the book. One thing that I loved was the faith that both Wade and Abrianna show., Especially when Abrianna was fighting with Welby and she told him that he was not the only one with friends in powerful positions, She also had a friend in a powerful position, That her hope is in the Lord.  One of the best parts in the book , So check out and tell me what you think. :)

I rate the book 5 Stars *****

  As I said before, I loved the book, but I need to find the first two books in the series so that I can see what I missed. In case you want to check out this series or other books by Mrs Tracie Peterson, I have included a link to her website below.

Happy Reading!!!

I would like to thank Bethany House for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was not asked to write a favorable review, Just a honest one.
