The Promised Amish Bride

GIVEAWAY
PERRY, MARTA
THE PROMISED AMISH BRIDE

A prodigal homecoming...the Brides of Lost Creek continues

Returning to his Amish community after losing his job in the Englisch world. Aaron King isn't sure if he wants to stay. Everything's the same, including his childhood friend Sally Stoltzfus. With an uncertain future and a big secret, Aaron has changed. But the more time he spends training a horse with Sally, the more he believes this is exactly where he's meant to be.

My Review:

Happy sigh. I do so love Marta Perry's books and this series in particular. The King brothers are reunited at last in this prodigal son story and I loved the sibling dynamics as they find their way towards becoming a family again. No worries if you haven't read the first two books in this series -- The Promised Amish Bride reads well as a standalone -- but if you are familiar with Caleb and Daniel it's just plain fun to revisit with them and their lady loves. Not to mention Onkel Zeb and the kinder!

It's all a bit overwhelming for Aaron who isn't quite sure what his return to Lost Creek really means. Is he back for a visit or something more permanent? He's guarded and wary, accepting the overtures of the community with a caution born of distrust. Except for Sally -- her open-hearted kindness and gentle acceptance breaks through all his barriers and leaves him more confused then ever. Their rekindled friendship soon heats up and then things really get complicated.

A moving story of reconciliation and second chances.

    1. It reads fine as a standalone -- love the way Love Inspired books assure that so you can pick up in the middle of a series if you've missed a couple. Good luck, rubynreba!
