Christmas Comes to Morning Star (The Maidels of Morning Star #3) by Charlotte Hubbard

 


Founded by five unmarried and enterprising Amish maidels, the new Morning Star Marketplace in small-town Missouri is preparing for a joyous Christmas season. But will the holiday also bring unexpected tidings of love?
 
Twin sisters Molly and Marietta Helfing are eagerly anticipating Christmas, with Marietta fully recovered from cancer and their noodle making business thriving. But Molly clearly misses having former tenant Pete Shetler and his rambunctious dog, Riley, around. Marietta can’t ignore Molly’s feelings for Pete—or the anxiety it stirs within her. Convinced her illness has made her unmarriageable, Marietta wonders what kind of life she’ll have if her sister marries—despite Molly’s promise to never leave her behind. . .
 
Then a fire destroys the home of Amish neighbors and Molly and Marietta graciously make room for widower Glenn Detweiler, his dat, and his two young boys. When Pete returns to help the family rebuild, Molly relishes her reunion with the handsome carpenter, while Marietta delights in mothering Glenn’s boys—and is surprised by her poignant bond with their quiet, brooding father. Soon everyone is wondering if this season will bring the blessing of a merry double wedding to Morning Star.

About The Author


 Charlotte Hubbard sold her first historical romance in 1990, and she's been a slave to her overactive imagination ever since. As she writes, her stories invariably take on a life of their own, different from the way she proposed them: unforeseen characters and plot twists come along, and they keep her guessing right along with her readers!

Charlotte has lived in the Midwest most of her life. When she's not writing, she loves touring historic homes, trying new recipes, crocheting, and playing with her Border Collie, Ramona. She's a Presbyterian deacon, sings in her church choir, and plays in the percussion ensemble. She's married to a fine man who--bless him--has never once suggested she get a real job!

My Review


 
Charlotte Hubbard is one of my favorite authors, and I know that reading her books are like receiving a warm hug, and this read did not disappoint.

Now if you've read some of the previous books about the Marketplace, you will be reunited with past friends, but this is a book that can be read alone! This read will update you on friends, and questionable characters, whom we are now about to embrace.

We are left hanging with some of the people we now know, so I am hoping for another visit to Morning Star, and more updates!

This is a book that does not disappoint, yes, there are some sad happenings, but there are several warm and fuzzy! The only problem I have is that the book ends, and I need to close the cover!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington Books, and was not required to give a positive review
