For so long, Stella was known for her beauty. Now, with her heart stripped bare, she must discover who she really is.

Former pageant queen Stella Varland doesn't trust beauty anymore after her divorce. Her appearance betrayed her and led to brokenness, so instead of being beautiful, now she tries to make beautiful things, but she always falls short. So she keeps her passion for art to herself and focuses on her interior design work. But if she doesn't get another job soon, she'll be stuck living with her parents.

Contractor Chase Taylor is determined to live a life of no regrets after losing his fiancée. Now he lives life at full speed, striving to see how much he can accomplish. He knows if he slows down, he'll fall apart. So he returns home to Bayou Bend to renovate the town's old theater and is shocked to discover that the designer for the project is his old flame, Stella.

Forced to work together, Chase and Stella battle their chemistry and past as they struggle to compromise and work together on a vision for the theater. Their wills clash as they attempt to hide their brokenness-and their unresolved feelings for each other-until Chase discovers the hidden parts of Stella, while losing her trust in the process.

A near catastrophe, a fire, and a small-town gossip mill finally force Stella and Chase to realize that they have a choice-to hold on to the shards of their pasts, or surrender their fragmented pieces to the One who makes a beautiful masterpiece from their brokenness.

Great Romance
5 stars By Monique, Aug 22 2018
I loved this book from St. Amant. I really enjoyed her previous novel and was excited to be able to continue reading about the characters lives. The story line was easy to follow and the characters were easy relate to. It's a great story that shows how God can fix all the broken pieces in your life and that He may do that in a way that you least expect it.
I would recommend this novel to anyone who loves reading romance.

Good points and not so good
3 stars By Iola, Jun 30 2015
Love Arrives in Pieces is the sequel to All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes, although this can easily be read as a stand-alone. I read and reviewed All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes, and while I thought it was a good story, I also thought it was too long: it felt like there was only enough plot to fill a novella, and it had been stretched to novel-length with the addition of endless interior monologue. 

Love Arrives in Pieces had the same problem. A conversation between the two main characters would be interrupted by a page or more of interior monologue (well, I was reading on a Kindle, so a Kindle page or more), to the point where I'd actually forgotten what the conversation was about and had to skip back to find the last line of dialogue to work it out, then skip past the interior monologue to make sense of it. Some people might like this, but I don't. I'm all for getting to know the characters through interior monologue, but not in the middle of a conversation. Keep it to a short sentence or two in dialogue so as not to disrupt the flow of the story. 

It's a shame, because the dialogue was excellent (once I ignored the interior monologue), and the story dealt with some important spiritual issues. Love Arrives in Pieces had potential, but didn't deliver for me. 

Thanks to Zondervan and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
