My Review: Are you ready for a book that will make you laugh but at the same time dig deep into your soul? If so, this book is for you.
We continue to get to know Esther, Lizzie, and Grumpy Gus as the ladies run their Amish Inn and Gus lives on their property and continues to be…well…a grump. A film crew has rented the Inn while they are in town to film scenes for a movie. Joyce, the director’s son, meets Evelyn and sparks fly. Can their two worlds mesh into one?
This is a clean Christian Amish romance. If you like clean romances but not the Bible verses every other page this series is perfect. This book does discuss religion more than book 1 but was done very tastefully and informational.
From Goodreads: When sparks fly between a good Amish girl and a hunky member of the Hollywood elite, even matchmaking innkeepers Esther and Lizzie know better than to fan the flames.
Evelyn Schrock has dismissed the attempts of every young man in her small Amish community to court her. She’s willing to wait for a suitor who shares her curiosities about life and faith.
The only reason Jayce Clarkson is in Amish country hefting equipment for his famous father’s movie production company is for the paycheck. The homestyle cooking at the Peony Inn is a perk though, as is his friendship with Evelyn Schrock. If Jayce can endure his dad’s put-downs for a month, he’ll finally be in a position to make a fresh start—somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and the shadow of his checkered past.
To matchmakers Esther and Lizzie, the widowed sisters who operate the inn, Jayce seems like a good man stuck in a life he doesn’t want. But the boy isn’t Amish, and that leaves far too much room for broken hearts. Despite that, Jayce and Evelyn start to realize that they can’t deny their growing attraction. Any path forward seems impossible, and they will have to learn what the future will look like when they leave their fate in Gott’s hands.
