This book had my full attention from the first page and wouldn't let me go! It started out as adorable, then became humorous, then went on to sweet, lots of healing occurred for both main characters Jade and Bryan, lots of family scenes that made this book enchanting, a beautiful friendship develops between Jade and Bryan but there were hints of romance that had me smiling, then the book becomes touching, and finally it completely moves me as it concludes and my heart was so fully satisfied..... ...more

Great, clean romance with a inspirational theme (but not preachy). Bryan, the hero in Her Small-Town Romance, was introduced in Unexpected Family, a previous book in her Lake Endwell series. However, this book is a great stand alone that will probably make you want to read Small-Town Bachelor and Unexpected Family. Jade is new to Lake Endwell but like Bryan has a lot of baggage. This is a great story of how they become friends, deal with their pasts and their relationships with God, and fall in ...more

I love a good clean romance and this book did not disappoint. I also love it when a book has an encouraging inspirational message which this book had as well. The Hero, Bryan, who I have a crush on was dealing with guilt from a previous marriage. He felt he could have done more to save it. He is a guy who doesn't take his vows lightly. They mean something. The Heroine, Jade has a fear that she can't seem to overcome. Bryan with his easygoing manner and lovable disposition has Jade overcoming her ...more

An engaging read! The two main characters help each other overcome their fear and self-doubts through friendship, faith and family. Part of a series, but it was fine as a stand alone. I'd like to read the others now to get the sibling's story. Fans of contemporary Christian romances would enjoy this!

Jessica Patch
I have come to feel such a part of the Sheffield family! Jill Kemerer delivers another wonderful sweet romance with quirky, fun characters who are easy to fall in love with, a faith element that is deep but not preachy, and a great big satisfying ending. I love the way Kemerer develops her hero and heroine; they're believable and easy to identify with. I don't want the Sheffield series to end!

I loved this story! The main characters, Bryan and Jade kept trying to talk themselves out of what was absolutely best for them in the long run. However, they were able to overcome by working together.

I've had so much fun getting to know the Sheffield Family. I feel as if I'm a part of the family. Being the third book in the series, it follows Bryan Sheffield. He's a wilderness guide who starts up an outdoor survival course because he wants to move to Ontario, Canada to work at Blue Mountain Retreat. He must prove to Blue Mountain that he has the skills to work there. The only person who shows up for the class is Jade Emerson. She has just moved to Lake Endwell to open a new T-shirt shop. She ...more

The ease with which Jade and Bryan connected was extremely thought out and well developed. Jade's fears were realistic. Bryan's self doubt was handled superbly.

What I loved most was how easy it was to picture the small town, the camaraderie between the siblings, and seeing the interactions between the two characters, as well as their internal thoughts.

Her Small-Town Romance made it possible to believe again in happiness. It showed that love is there for the taking if one is only willing to look

Love Inspired fans unite. This sweet story takes brings Bryan Sheffield and Jade Emerson together in the most uncomfortable way. Bryan's anxious to get away from his hometown of Lake Endwell, Michigan, and from the disappointment of his past. He's got his eyes set on the perfect job and the best part-it's all the way in Canada. He's got one problem. He doesn't have the job yet and needs newcomer, Jade Emerson, to help him land the job.

Jade Emerson is haunted by a past that leaves her terrified o

Finding her way home…

This story caught my attention from the very start!

When Bryan Sheffield spots who he describes as a tiny woman who appeared to be praying or chanting or . . . something, the adventure begins. Jade Emerson has signed up for his class — something she really doesn’t want to do, but forces herself to stay.

This is the third book Jill Kemerer has written, apparently in a series, and I can’t wait to read the other two books. Once I have them, I’ll probably read all three in order.

Her Small-Town Romance ( Love Inspired )
By: Jill Kemerer

Wow, what a delightful story. This is my first to read by Jill Kemerer , but hopefully wan’t be my last. Loved the story and the characters, both were easy to follow. Kemerer pens a very good, clean, inspirational romance. She did not disappoint me. The author had me hooked right from the start. I laughed and at times i felt tears in my eyes. Jade moves to Lake Endwell Michigan for a new start. She is also trying to over come a fear she has

Kemerer writes stories of hope and redemption. Her characters have great personalities and are lovable from the start. She's great about adding little windows into their background without overloading the reader. You'll find yourself rooting for these two.
Bryan is adorable--a sigh worthy hero. And Jade is a light that brightens the story. Throw in the rest of the Sheffield family, and this is one sweet, clean, lovable romance you won't want to miss.
Becky
Great Story!
Joan Arning
Her Small-Town Romance is sweet story of overcoming your fears with God's help and of accepting that you are the person God made you to be. Dog lovers will like the part a St. Bernard named Teeny plays in getting handsome Bryan Sheffield and lonely Jade Emerson together. I enjoyed this book featuring another of the Sheffield siblings and recommend it to others.

I find the entire Lake Endwell series delightful! They are romance novels that I don't mind if my children find. Bryan's quest for happiness and Jade's desire to overcome her childhood fears are very relatable!
Harlequin Books
"Kemerer educates the reader about nature and provides a number of sound strategies to deal with fears and anxieties, including giving those fears over to God. Her characters are flawed, which makes them very relatable and engaging" (4 stars @ RT Book Reviews).

What a sweet story. I loved watching Jade and Bryan fall in love. I look forward to reading more from Jill Kemerer. Jade and Bryan were both so likeable with very real issues they were both dealing with. I loved Bryan's family and the town, and I really adored Teeny the not so little dog.

I am thankful that I was able to return to Lake Endwell and learn more about the Sheffield family. Jill Kemerer's characters are so believable and also so interesting. What a heart warming story filled with hope and healing. Oh, and romance too.
