    Well I¿ve put this off long enough, I didn¿t want to write this

    Well I’ve put this off long enough, I didn’t want to write this blog post book review because I didn’t like this book very much. It was a bit too sweet for my taste. I knew starting it that it would be part of a series, but usually when you get a book that is part of a series, the story you are reading wraps up in the book and other characters storys continue  the overlaying events in additional books. That did not happen with this book. Its more like the end of the season show on a tv drama, they build up to a relationship between 2 characters and then you have to wait for the next book to see where it goes.

    I will not be reading the rest of this series, I could care less at this point because when I read a book I expect a conclusion at the end of the volume I hold in my hand.

    The story that was in the book was ok, like I said before it was a bit too sweet for my taste, a nice gentle predectible story.

    I’m sure someone else will enjoy this set of books, but its just not for me.

    “I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.

    I will state up front¿I am NOT a fan of Amish fiction and A Seas

    I will state up front–I am NOT a fan of Amish fiction and A Season for Tending is not the book that will change that. It was slow moving and a bit too soapy for me. Cindy Woodsmall is a fine writer, no doubt about it, but I simply did not enjoy the storyline at all. I would love to see her take a step away from the Amish fiction fad and write a Christian fiction book of a different genre.

    Fans of Amish fiction will probably love A Season for Tending. The writing is good and if you enjoy this sort of story line, then I would say that you’d enjoy this one. As for me, I felt it was too slow and stilted. I just didn’t connect with the characters at all. If Woodsmall continues to write Amish fiction alone, this will be the last book of hers I read. But, I hope that at some point she steps away from this genre to write about a different subject. If you like Amish fiction, then give this one a try, but if you’re like me and don’t enjoy it, I’d say skip this one.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Library Thing in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
