Amish Love Letters by Shelley Shepard Gray, Charlotte Hubbard, Rosalind Lauer

 

A heartfelt note, a loving message, a letter filled with secret hopes—this trio of sweet Amish romances will show that on Valentine’s Day, the right words can spark a lifetime of joy.

Love Letter Courtship * Shelley Shepard Gray

After six months of courtship, Jennie Miller has refused Matt Lapp’s proposal. Though he visits regularly, they never seem to talk deeply, and Jennie longs for real connection and romance. Chastened, Matt offers a solution. For two months, they’ll share letters filled with their hopes and dreams. Soon, Jennie is falling for Matt in earnest . . . but will he ever propose again?

S.W.A.K * Charlotte Hubbard

Quiet, gentle Fannie Kurtz knows that fun-loving Eddie Brubaker is the man she wants to marry someday. When he starts receiving letters in pink envelopes, she realizes she has some competition. Maybe it’s time she wrote a love note or two of her own? But a mix-up could jeopardize this romance before it starts, unless she keeps faith in Gott’s plan . . .
 
The Wrong Valentine * Rosalind Lauer

Young widow Martha Lambright is grateful to be working at her mother-in-law’s restaurant, even if seeing the kitchen gals giggle over Valentine cards gives her a pang. But when Mose Troyer, the former bad boy who drives Martha to and from work each day, finds a Valentine he mistakenly believes is for him, it begins a tender exchange that could lead to a wonderful future.

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!

 


 

Rosalind Lauer grew up in a large family in Maryland and began visiting Lancaster County’s Amish community as a child. Lauer attended Wagner College in New York City and worked as an editor for Simon & Schuster and Harlequin Books. She now lives with her family in Oregon, where she writes in the shade of some towering two-hundred-year-old Douglas fir trees.
   


My Review

 


 

Three different stories, by three authors, and this novellas become page turners.

The first one is rather sad, but keep reading and hoping that this pair of Amish friends can turn into a sweet couple. A stumbling block, and one that is not easy to be around, but I loved how it was handled.

The second one happens back in a place I would love to live, Promise Lodge, and a new pair of siblings arrive to make a new start in their lives. Still recovering from the tornado, Eddie Brubaker is quickly putting his skills to work! He is hoping for a new start away from a woman whom is making him wary, but alas no luck. I loved how this one was worked out!

The final deals with a woman coming to terms of being a widow and the cause of what happened to her husband. This Valentines Day time, and she makes a mistake with a valentine she has had, and it changes her life!

I loved these stories, and just hated for them to end! Enjoy!

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