When Lovey Stutzman’s accepts her sister’s dare to take a buggy ride with Marshall Byler, she didn’t realize that she was about to embark on a road to a happy future. However, the studious Amish woman would rather attend to her family and their business. Besides, Lovey has a beautiful younger sister and cannot accept the fact that Marshall is truly interested in her. This was a very touching story. Lovey is a beautiful, responsible woman who believes love is for everyone else. As drawn as she is to Marshall she can’t see experiencing love in her future. Quite naturally this is a clean romance, but it is very effective. I felt very drawn to the characters. Both Lovey and Marshall were really special. I especially loved how Marshall proposed marriage every time they were together. Lovey’s sister Ginger could be a pain, but I did like her and really hope that one day she gets her own story. There were other well-developed characters in this story. Lovey’s parents were just too sweet and I enjoyed their story as well. This warm story was a delightful read and has a wonderful conclusion. Many thanks from Love Inspired and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

The Amish Spinster's Courtship by Emma Miller An Amish courtship no one expected… But is he too good to be true? To prove she has a fun side, ultraserious Lovey Stutzman accepts her sister’s dare: a buggy ride with Hickory Grove’s most handsome Amish bachelor. But what Lovey can’t accept is Marshall Byler’s claim that he fell in love with her at first sight. Now Marshall must defy everyone’s expectations—including his family’s—to prove his intentions once and for all This Lovey Stutzman and Marshall Byler's story. Marshall gasped as the strong taste of sour lemon filled his mouth and made his eyes water. He grimaced and began to choke just as the door swung open to reveal a young Amish woman in a green dress and white kapp. He tried to clear his throat and coughed. “Atch,” she said, and clapped a hand over her mouth to suppress a giggle. “You weren’t supposed to drink that yet.” She held up a pint jar of raw sugar in one hand and a wooden spoon in the other. “I still need to add the sugar.” “You’re telling me,” Marshall replied. Rather, he tried to reply, but his voice came out in a strangled croak and he began to cough again. She pointed at him with her spoon and grimaced. “Sorry. Though my mam did teach me to make lemonade so you could taste the lemons.” Marshall Byler stepped into the shade of the concrete block dairy barn that housed the new Miller harness shop and breathed a sigh of relief. The July sun was hot and the day was muggy, just what one would expect for midsummer in Kent County and sure to make the corn grow. He’d been cultivating his corn in his east field when a groundhog had startled Toby, the younger of his two horses, and he’d spooked. Marshall had gotten the horses calmed down before they tore up more than a small portion of his crop. However, somewhere in the frantic shying of the team, Toby’s britchen strap, a section of harness that kept the horse from getting tangled in the traces, snapped. Marshall didn’t need the harness immediately, but he decided to go ahead and drop it off for repair right away, so it would be ready when he needed it again. Miller’s Harness Shop would save him time because it was closer to his farm than the Troyer Harness Shop, which he usually frequented. And he also liked the idea of giving his business to the new place; there was enough leatherwork to be done in Hickory Grove to support both the Troyer and the Miller families. Besides, the shop was owned by his new friend Will’s father and it seemed only right to go there. I am looking forward to reading more books by Emma Miller. I highly recommend reading. The Amish Spinster's Courtship by Emma Miller is a wonderful well written 5 star book. more books by Emma Miller. The Amish Spinster's Courtship The Amish Sweet Shop Amish Matchmaker 1.

Laugh out loud delightful are the first words that come to mind about this book. A man who knows his mind, and a young Amish woman who has low self-esteem, and we get to see who wins! The author has given us a strong woman who loves her family, and being her mother’s oldest has been given a lot of responsibilities through the years, including getting a home ready for sale in a different state. The we have a young man given the responsibility of raising his younger brother and caring for his grandmother. Has fate put them together, or has God put this on their hearts? We get a front seat and this quickly became a page turner for me, and a sense of loss once the last page was there. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.

Emma Miller is an author of many types of Amish books, mainly straight on romances. I may not have read them all, but the ones that I have read have never received less than a 4-star rating from me and this book is no exception. I giggled while reading this book and I cried too -and I can say that it takes an exceptional book to bring out that much emotion in me. There is very little sermonizing in this book but it is a very clean romance (naturally) so if you are hesitant to read this because of its religious overtones -don't be. I am the least religious person you will have ever met and I love these books. Ms. Miller does a fine balancing act mixing a bit of religion with the everyday. The main plot is one that you expect -confident boy meets a shy and slightly awkward girl, the boy immediately takes a liking to the girl, there is a huge misunderstanding that eventually gets straightened out and we have our HEA! There is a slight secondary plot concerning Loveys mother and a pregnancy and that was interesting. I only wish the author had given a tad more story over to that. This book is well worth the time that is taken to read. *ARC supplied by publisher.
