Review for The House That Love Built by Beth Wiseman

The description of this book says:

Brooke has only loved one man, her late husband. Owen’s rebuilding after a painful divorce. Can a mysterious house bring them together for a second chance at love?
In the charming town of Smithville, Texas, Brooke Holloway is raising two young children on her own, supporting them by running the family hardware store. The last thing on her mind is falling in love. But she’s intrigued when a stranger moves to town and buys the old Hadley mansion. She’s always heard that house holds a secret—maybe even a treasure—and she can’t wait to see inside. When she meets the new owner and they spend time together, she can’t deny the attraction. Could God be giving her another chance at happiness? Or is she betraying her late husband’s memory by even thinking that way?
Owen Saunders bought the Hadley place to spite his cheating ex-wife. She’d always wanted to restore an old house in Smithville. Now he’s going to do it without her. But if anything needs restoration, it is Owen’s heart. Then he meets Brooke and her kids and finds himself tempted by love. Can he bring himself to trust a woman again?
Throw an eccentric uncle into the mix, along with the town’s teenage troublemaker, and even a finicky cat—and one thing becomes clear: God is bringing them all together for a reason.
Just reading the description of this book had me very curious about it.  It caught my attention and had me wondering what would happen with Brooke and Owen.  The book is a very easy read.  I had never read a book by Beth Wiseman and I absolutely loved it!  I did not want to put it down.  The book tells amazing stories about grace, forgiveness and reconciliation.  I think this is a book that I would read over and over again.  I would highly recommend this book to other women.  It is a wonderful love story, but the stories of reconciliation and forgiveness touched me much more.  
I received this book for free from Booksneeze in exchange of an honest review.
