All three stories are wonderfully written and very enjoyable. I have found a new author to start reading in Amy Lillard.
My favorite of the three stories is The Reluctant Groom by Jennifer Beckstrand, of course, as we venture back to Huckleberry Hill. How can you stay away from Anna and Felty? I think we all wish we had them in our lives at one time. Suvie is quite a pip and is a prefect friend for quirky Anna. With those two in charge you never know what is going to happen. Tighten your seat belts because you are in for a ride!
In Joshua’s Bride by Molly Jebber, I was able to visit with the Amish of the 1800’s which is not something I do very often. Your heart will go the sweetest of highs and the saddest of lows as Madeline tries to love her fiancé’s family as they despise her at every turn.
Finally, in A Summer Wedding in Paradise by Amy Lillard we join feisty, independent Reba as she becomes the teacher for the last few weeks of school. A mishap that leaves her breathless is not just because she lands in the muddy ditch. It is a case of “those dastardly dimples”. (My favorite line in the entire book). Will Reba succumb to the dimples or will she be able to wipe them right off Abel’s face?
This book is perfect for the summer nights that you only have a few minutes here and there to read due to kids ball schedules, camps and etc. as the chapters are short and the stories are as well. Also a great book to wean your way into the Amish reading world if you have not done so.
Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington for a free ARC for me to read and post a review based on my own honest opinion.
