My Review: I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. My favorite was book two but all are good reads. All can be read as standalone. All are good clean reads for teenagers on up.
The twins, Rachel and Ella Mae have been my least favorite characters as they are so immature but so are the boys Jonas and Jeremiah. It was nice to see the four of them grow up.
I love the idea of a cookie club with close friendships, a weekly day to gather and connect all the while fulfilling a need in the community. It would be something I would love to do with some friends when it is safe to gather again.
I alternated between reading and listening to the audiobook and suggest either one for readers. The narrator is engaged with the characters in the audiobook.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, Kensington Books, through NetGalley. All opinions expressed in the above review are entirely my own.
NetGalley: Baking cookies every other Friday for their respective church districts gives Edna Esh and three of her closest friends a chance to give to the Plain community and strengthen their bond with each other. In this third Amish Cookie Club novel by ELPA bestselling author Sarah Price, tourist season is approaching, and the Edna is busier than ever, between baking with her Amish Cookie Club friends and running her business serving meals to Englische tourists. You wouldn’t think she’d have time for matchmaking…
Edna couldn’t be happier that her new daughter-in-law, Bethany, is pregnant. But Bethany is also her best helper, and morning sickness has her out of commission. Desperate for more hands, Edna accepts a friend’s offer for her twin daughters, Rachel and Ella Mae, to step in. Trouble is, the young women are constantly bickering–except when Edna’s sons Jeremiah and Jonas are around…
It’s soon clear that Rachel has taken a shine to Jeremiah, while Jonas is smitten with Ella Mae. It’s also clear the feelings aren’t reciprocated. But after confiding in the Cookie Club, Edna devises a plan for the pairs to spend more time together. The only problem is it seems to be failing. Yet it appears there’s a grander plan at work–and as nature takes its course, and the MayFest arrives, there’s reason to look forward to the bountiful sweetness of a double wedding come autumn…
