The Welcome Committee of Butternut Creek- Review

About the Book:

Upon his arrival, Butternut Creek Christian Church's newly-minted minister is met by a welcome committee led by Miss Birdie and her friend Mercedes, a.k.a. "the Widows." Their first order of business, to educate him on how things should be done, quickly gives way to a campaign to find him a wife.

When their matchmaking efforts fizzle, the Widows turn to another new bachelor. Amputee and Afghan vet Sam simply wants to be left alone-- a desire that's as good as a red flag to the Widows! Soon they're scheming to pair him up with Willow, his beautiful physical therapist, a divorced mother of two who is afraid of commitment, Perrine's small-town tale is a big-time triumph of gentle humor, fast-paced plot, and wonderfully engaging characters.

My Review

What a wonderful book! All a story could hope for ~ a quaint little town, a young and handsome new Preacher, Adam. Lest we forget the widows, who find it their job to be matchmaker! You will fall in love with Birdie and Mercedes(the Widows) not only do the play matchmaker, but also make sure Adam knows how the church is run. They even become decorators for Adam's parsonage. For this, Adam is so thankful, since he came to town with very little! Willow is a physical therapist, a mom of two, and single! The Widows believe she is the perfect one for Adam. Adam is determined to make his own way and as he settles in, he begins reaching out to those in his community, doing whatever he can with God's help. His heart and compassion will inspire you as he helps others face their troubles.
