Pine Creek Courtship (Pine Creek #1) by Amity Hope


Love may be right around the corner in the heartwarming, sweet, and gentle Pine Creek series from Amity Hope.

After the death of her beloved father, Emma Ziegler just wants to keep her family’s maple syrup farm afloat and raise her two young siblings. But when her meddling aunt’s first choice of a husband for her turns out to be Emma’s last choice—Pine Creek’s most notorious bachelor—Emma grows desperate. Her aunt won’t listen, no matter how much she tries to tell her the man in no way embodies the Amish values of faith or hard work.

Kind and industrious Levi Bontrager has always wanted to protect his best friend Emma, even after a secret from their youth left them growing apart. Which is why he steps in to claim that Emma cannot wed anyone else, as she is currently courting him. Yes, the small lie leaves him feeling guilty, but Levi’s hope is that if he can win back the beautiful Emma’s trust, he can also win over her heart...for real.

But can a courtship that began just for show ever blossom into a true romance that could save both their futures?



About The Author

Amity lives in beautiful northern Minnesota with her two sons and a couple of cats.

She has a degree in elementary education and worked in that field for ten years before deciding to self-publish.

Her first self-published novel, Twisted, was listed by Amazon as a Top 100 Kids & Teens Kindle Book of 2012. It hit Amazon's Teen & Young Adult Contemporary Romance Best Sellers List in several countries. Truths and Dares held the #1 position on Amazon's Best Sellers in Teen & Young Adult Contemporary Romance eBooks in the UK.

My Review

As I read this book I couldn’t help but reflect on all Emma Ziegler has been through in her young life, she has given her all, helped raise her siblings, one from birth, and worked to help the family make a living.
You can almost feel how broken she is when her aunt decides to marry her and let someone buy her Dad’s farm. She has just buried her father, and wants to keep her family together, but to marry someone she really doesn’t care for?
When her neighbor hears this he steps in and declares he is courting, more truth than poetry here, but will Emma accept him.
Will Emma’s pride and determination get in the way of happiness, or will she be able to accept help from others? There are answers here, and we journey along with the author for answers!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Entangled Publishing, LLC, and was not required to give a positive review.
