Heaven Sent by Sherri Schoenborn Murray

My review today is on the Christmas Romance, Heaven Sent. This book takes place in 1965 and brought back a lot of old memories. I really enjoyed it.

It broke her heart but she goes anyway. She reads what he has written in her autograph book hoping for something sweet but its nothing memorable.
Pastor John Hugg has agreed to host the choir girls but soon realizes it is a way to find him a wife. The seven Granite Girls are praying, gossiping, and doing everything they can to set him up. He meets Isabelle at the grocery story while taking a widow of the church shopping. He is stunned by the woman and begins to flirt with her but the girl disappears. What did he say?
What was the man thinking? He was flirting with her in front of his wife. What kind of a town was this? Izz soon finds out that this is the pastor. What had she got her self into? John assures her he's not married. Attracted to him she assures everyone that she has a sort-of-boyfriend. She tells John she has loved Al since she was eight. She left out the part about being mad at him now. No one believes he's real until one of the Granite girls finds a secret post in her autograph book saying he loves her.
