The Potter's Lady

The Potter's Lady
Refined by Love Book 2
Judith Miller
Rose has finished her schooling at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women. Now she wants to put her skills to the test working for her brother at his pottery business. Rylan was the right hand man for the previous owner. But the new owners are making changes and Rylan has never been a fan of change. But as he works closely with Rose and her brother, Ewan, he realizes they might be trusting the wrong person. Can a contest be the clue to saving their business or will it ruin everything they've worked so hard to accomplish?

The author is really good at creating mental pictures. I was able to "see" the story with all of the descriptions. There was quite a bit of explanation about the pottery and how it was run. While this was interesting to me, it did seem to detract from the main plot of the story. The plot moved very slowly for me and it took me over half of the book before it picked up. I enjoyed the intrigue surrounding the competition and the contest. This is book two in the series and while I think the book would work okay as a stand-alone, I would recommend reading book one first. Overall, it was a nice, descriptive story with a good message that had a slow start and weak romance.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
