An Amish Cinderella (The Amish of Apple Creek #3) by Shelley Shepard Gray



Set in the close-knit Amish community of Apple Creek, Ohio, this sweet Cinderella-inspired novel from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling and award-winning author is complete with a matchmaking pet rat, and will delight fans of heartwarming, wholesome fiction and readers of Charlotte Hubbard, Beverly Lewis, and Beth Wiseman.
Now that her friends are all marrying or moving away, Heart Beachy has started feeling lonely. Worse, everyone keeps asking when she’s going to find a man of her own. Don’t they realize Heart has her hands full at home with her widowed dad, too many chores, and a menagerie of needy, small animals? Besides, she doesn’t understand the fuss about marriage.
Newcomer Clayton Glick is utterly charmed by Heart—and completely confounded. He can’t figure out why this beautiful woman is as awkward as a teenager whenever he’s around, which is often now that he’s an apprentice to her blacksmith father. So Clayton starts assisting with Heart’s never-ending tasks, even helping her corral her unruly pets. How else can he court an adorably flustered woman who doesn’t know the first thing about courtship? Because courting is exactly what he intends . . .
Heart doesn’t know why her pulse hammers every time she sees Clayton. She only knows yielding to such emotions will mean trouble. . . . But maybe with a little faith—and the loss of a shoe—Clayton can convince her to join him on the road to happily ever after.

My Review


Shelley Shephard Gray is a go to author, I knew I would enjoy this book, and she didn't disappoint!

This is a story of healing, and remembering. We are also offered some sweet romance, and a cuddly rat. Yes, a pet rat named Spike, maybe, but I don't think so.

This is a delightful twist on the fairy tale Cinderella, an Amish twist, and for me it became a page turner. The characters here great, and love how Mary gives so much, as does sweet Heart/aka Hazel.

You don't want to miss this one!

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