What an awesome take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs! I absolutely loved this book.
Kym McNabney
It has been some time since I last read one of LENORA WORTH'S books, but only because she changed genres. She was one of the very first inspirational fiction authors I read, and I fell in love with her writing. I was excited to discover HOMETOWN SWEETHEART.

As I began to read this wonderful story, I wasn't disappointed, being instantly swept away. The writing was just as amazing as I'd remembered, with three-dimensional characters you'll fall in love with. The storyline was unique and rich.

"Hometown Sweetheart" by Lenora Worth is a book full of hurt just in different forms and shapes, but more than that it is full of hope and healing.

Simon the grouchy hermit who wants to be left alone so he can work in total solitude. He is a man who is hurting from a major loss in his life. Yet deep under all that grumpiness there is a heart of gold mixed in a lot of confusion.

Loved this modern retelling of Snow White!

I think this was sweet because we learn our romance does come from those who care about us if we have in mind HOLY matrimony and not just the casual friends we become but the best of friends.
Quick easy read. Not the best Love Inspired book I have read. This was more of a plain love story than a "learn to lean on God" love story. Still good, though. I chuckled and cried throughout.
I really like the characters and the story line. Author did a great job, one of the first love inspired novels I have read. Just a feel good easy read.
Nice, clean romance. I enjoyed the story. I don't know that it will stand out in my mind a lot, but it was a nice piece of escapist literature. :)

I loved this book. The end something about it bothers me. I don't know what, but I loved it anyway.
