Overview

Love is in the air in this delightful novel-third in the bestselling Ladybug Farm series from award-winning author Donna Ball.

Renovating a broken-down mansion in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley gave three lifelong friends a welcome second chance. But after taking the biggest risk of their lives, are these women also willing to risk their hearts?

All the effort Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget have put into transforming an historic but overgrown farm into an upscale winery and special events business is paying off-Ladybug Farm has been chosen to host a society wedding. What this really means is that they are about to be invaded by warring mothers-in-law, a Bridezilla, and a completely clueless groom. They have their hands full keeping Ladybug Farm from descending into total chaos.

But there's something about a wedding...

I really love this Ladybug Farm Series (once you read The Hummingbird House-2013-not part of the series; however, featured Paul and Derrick from the series and scenes with the Ladybug farm ladies)-- I immediately had to purchase the series via e-book and read them in order to hear the origin and background of these fabulous ladies. I have read #1- a Year on Ladybug Farm, #2 –A Home on Ladybug Farm, #3-Love Letters from Ladybug Farm and now have two more e-books which I have already purchased (#4- Christmas on Ladybug Farm, and #5- Vintage Ladybug Farm). All have been 5 star quality! I love everything about this series as I have mentioned previously in the other reviews. I adore the characters and the challenges and fun of restoring an old home, gardens, farm, design, gourmet food, business, and relaxing at the end of the day with friends and enjoying the fruits of your labor. The one thing I really miss about this series (assume it is due to these books being published earlier and now in e-book format) --no beautiful color cover image to draw you in, and no epilogue, or message from the author. It just ends and I continue to want to turn the page on my e-reader to read more when it ends. I love the way some authors such as Diane Chamberlain, and others will give an overview of what inspired them to write the story, their inspiration, the people who made the book possible, a readers discussion, and how the author is connected to the story. This series is too good not to hear more from the author of its creation-which is very important for the reader and how I connect with the author. I highly recommend this series as very entertaining! Being in the hospitality business, able to relate. Guess I will have to read them all before I get start on my other reading list as cannot get enough and will be sad when the series ends. So many loveable characters and rich in history and charm.

Three years ago, the BFFs widows Cici Burke, Lindsay Wright, and Bridget Tyndale lived middle class suburban lifestyles, but each felt their lives unfilled with their kids moved out and their husbands gone; they purchased a run down Farm (see A Year on Ladybug Farm). Since their epic risk began, they feel At Home on Ladybug Farm, but also struggle to stay afloat with their financially draining renovation of the historic mansion although their small art studio, winery and jams and jellies store have had some success. Friends suggest they open up the estate to major social galas. The trio has doubts but the sum of money they will receive from a society wedding overcomes their qualms especially when their first customers appear in need of a new location for a soon to be wedding. However, their guts prove right as they deal with lunatic combative mother-in-laws, bridezilla and goats as well as a romantic first for one of the widows. Obviously for fans of the series, the latest adventures on the farm in the Shenandoah Valley is a lighthearted amusing tale as the three women deal continues to swing the bat regardless of what life tosses at them. Each of the ladies keep their essence yet change as they begin to recognize the truth that they are struggling farmers who no longer can be labeled suburban dwellers; unlike several years ago when they would have silently put up with the bull of guests even nasty undesirable ones.

The Ladybug Farm series chronicles the trials and tribulations of three friends renovating a historic farmhouse and winery in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Love Letters from Ladybug Farm is the third in the series and, true to form, it is full of fun, adventure, and friendship. Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget have come a long way and the farm is really starting to shape into a lovely home. Struggling to find the necessary funds to complete their renovations they jump at the chance to host a high society wedding for a hefty sum. They soon learn that they will have to earn every penny of it the hard way! If you enjoyed the first two books in the series you will be happy to catch up with all your old friends. I especially like that the characters continue to grow, facing new issues with each book. The story is written in a breezy, easy reading style, but still addresses true to life problems. A lovely read, I look forward to the next one!
