I received this book from Booksneeze.com for free for my honest review of this book.
Three Amish women yearn for the perfect wedding.
“A Perfect Plan” by Beth Wiseman
Priscilla King has been planning to marry Chester Lapp since she was sixteen years old, and when Chester proposes on Priscilla’s nineteenth birthday, wedding plans begin immediately. What wasn’t planned was all the problems the couple encounters as their big day approaches. A house disaster, a ruined wedding dress, and a sick attendant all make the couple wonder if God’s sending them signs to call things off.
“The Perfect Match” by Kathleen Fuller
Naomi Fisher has had great success at matchmaking her family members and friends. Now with her sister’s wedding right around the corner, Naomi wonders why she’s able to find husbands for her friends and family, but not one for herself.
“The Perfect Secret” by Kelly Long
Rose Bender has recently become engaged to handsome but somber Luke Raber. She agrees out of a sense of duty and a willingness to settle for solid friendship as a basis for the engagement. But as she watches her friend’s excitement over her soon-to-be wedding, Rose wonders if there shouldn’t be more to her relationship with Luke. She begins to examine Luke and his life more closely and is amazed when she stumbles upon an exciting, secret side of him that engages her mind and heart.
I am a huge reader of Amish Fiction. I love Beth Wiseman and Kathleen Fuller. I personally hadn’t read anything by Kelly Long until this book. I am not one sho is drawn to Novellas because I am just not usually one to read short stories, I enjoy the investment of one whole story. That being said, because of the authors I decided to give a Novella book a chance and I am glad I did. All three stories are written in the same time period of about four weeks. Each one has intertwined the same group of people leading up to the wedding of Priscilla and Chester. I enjoyed the way this was written because it was the same characters throughout all three stories just different perspectives for each. I have to be honest I had a hard time getting into the first story “The Perfect Secret”. But I am glad I kept going because I wasn’t disappointed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish Fiction.
