Courting Emma is book three in the Little Hickman Creek Series by Sharlene MacLaren. This is Sharlene's third book in the Little Hickman Creek novels.

Courting Emma is book three in the Little Hickman Creek Series by Sharlene MacLaren. I really did enjoy this book. It was full of very nice surprises, twists and turns. While it was clean and very Christian (meaning lots of Bible verses and save your soul type stuff) I thought it could have been 100 pages shorter and been just fine. A lot of repetition, and few surprises.

The difference is you're sober for a change. All you ever did when I was growin' up was drink. Her hair had long ago escaped its ribbon and was hanging loosely down her back. was nothing more than a whisper, but he'd heard it just as clear as if a bell had chimed in his ear. Regret. He wondered if she'd heard it, too, or had she grown so accustomed to tuning him out that she'd missed it?She pulled up a stool and sat, unaware that Jon lurked in the shadows

Twenty–eight–year–old Emma Browning has experienced a good deal of life in her young age. Proprietor of Emma’s Boardinghouse, she is “mother” to an array of beefy, unkempt, often rowdy characters. Though many men would like to get to know the steely, hard–edged, yet surprisingly lovely proprietor, none has truly succeeded. That is, not until the town’s new pastor, Jonathan Atkins, takes up residence in the boardinghouse, affecting not only her with his devout faith and strong convictions, but her clientele as well. Emma clings desperately to her stubborn ways, refusing to acknowledge God’s love until all of Little Hickman witnesses a miracle—the conversion of her abusive and alcoholic father, Ezra! Only then will Emma begin to experience God’s transforming power at work.

I would have preferred once again to give it my 4.5 (that is unfortunately NOT available) as a 4 is really not enough but a 5 is too much in my estimation. Where I did more than "liked" this book ... I can't say I "loved it" .. I "loved" the 2nd in the series and that may have been the issue ... it was absolutely fantastic and I couldn't put it down ...so I had a bit of a tougher time with this book. Now, I have to admit I truly enjoyed this book and it certainly got better the farther I got into it. The scripture references were wonderful ...the characters I think may have been where I struggled. Where I loved Jon, or Paster Jonathan Atkins from the 1st book, and there were references to Liza & Ben and their family as well as Rocky and Sarah and a bit of theirs ... I had more trouble with Emma, who was the main character even from the first book on.

She unfortunately had a really, really tough childhood and that made her a hard person to get to know ... she had built such a wall up around herself ... and that wall was created such that it even came to be throughout this book until one got fairly far into it. Then there was her father ... the mean old drunken goat ... throughout the vast majority of this book ... was definitely one you might have felt sorry for if, you didn't know his past and what he had done to his daughter for years and years and years.

Fortunately, toward the end, people change and open their hearts which made this book more open itself and easier reading, for me at least. Now, I have to admit there is often a bit of intrigue in Sharlene MacLarene's books that I find interesting, this book also, definitely had stories of survival and how different people are able to handle them through different circumstances that come their way. This really made me at least think about so many people and maybe why their lives lead them the way they do, or at least why they make the choices (right or wrong) that they do. It definitely is a book about forgiveness and finding Our Lord which I absolutely loved and of course, there is the romance, which I personally find heartwarming.

All in all ... I really enjoyed this series and am so sorry that it has not continued with other people in Little Hickman ... as I truly think this town could definitely have brought out more stories of interest without any trouble whatsoever ... I am so sorry to be leaving it.

Sharlene MacLaren will definitely be an author I will read more of ... in fact I have already ordered her "Daughters of Jacob Kane" series and am definitely looking forward to that series as well.

I know all good things must come to an end...That being said, I'm really gonna miss the people and times of Little Hickman Creek. I've read all three in the series and agree with other reviewers that this one is the best of all. Sharlene MacLaren brought together an amazing cast of characters. I loved them all! From the town busy-body, Iris Winthrop, to little Lilli Broughton, each character was well developed. The town drunk's conversion and that of his daughter in this, the final installment, were the most touching scenes imaginable. I really appreciated the appropriate Scripture references throughout the series.

Well done, Mrs. MacLaren. Please consider, Ma'am, taking us back to Little Hickman Creek one day. I want to know how everyone's fairing: Liza and Ben, Sarah and Rocky, Emma and Jon, Cousin Grace and her new restaurant? Who's taking old man Ezra's farm? I was intrigue by the Billy Wonder character, too. How'd he find his lady Grunder? Oh, I've gotten quite attached to these people. I hate to have it end.

I highly recommend this novel and the entire Little Hickman Creek series.

I have to say... I LOVED THIS BOOK! I could just feel Emma's pain in the previous two books, and wanted to hear her story. I just was unprepared for this heartfelt of a story. Often Christian romances are sterile or over sweet. But these characters aren't perfect. They have had real trials and pain. They are imperfect humans, doing their best in life. Who can't relate to that?

I loved Jon from his first introduction. A man with a heart for God, a love for all man, and a sense of humor. Who wouldn't love him?

I have to say that a couple times in this book I laughed out loud. And several times I had to wipe tears from my eyes. Very touching, real story.

Charlene ended the Little Hickman Creek with a triumphant presentation of God's amazing Grace and love extended to mortal man. Beautiful!!

My husband's 92-yr-old aunt had read the first two books in this series and was excited to know I had located the third and last book of this series. A few days later, I called to remind her to watch for it in the mail. She giggled and 'fessed up that it had already arrived and she was already reading it. Talk about fast delivery. (Good read, too!!!)

I have searched for this book for years, never knowing I could simply order it off Amazon. It is amazing, how many of my old, lost series of books can be found yet again (on Amazon); I love it; and I'm so glad that I can send this and the other two, for my Christian sisters to read and enjoy. yeah

I ordered this book for a lady in my church. She seems to really like it, and she was appreciative of my ordering it for her. Item shipment/delivery was very prompt, as it should be with Amazon Prime customers. Still a great value!
Wonderful story of forgiveness and the wonderful gift of God's grace to us. I appreciate all the Scripture and how the author made salvation clear and easy for readers to understand.
