About The Book

Love is in the air in these four sweet romances!

Love and Buggy Rides (previously published in An Amish Harvest)

Janie Lantz is a cashier at Lancaster Souvenirs and Buggy Rides, where Jonathan Stoltfuz is a buggy driver. A frightening accident brings Janie and Jonathan together in a blossoming friendship, yet daunting obstacles stand between them and something deeper. Can love kindle into flames that burn away fear and regret—and lead them to a life together?

A Home for Lindsay

From Amy Clipston’s beloved Kauffman Amish Bakery series comes Lindsay Bedford’s story. Lindsay is happily looking forward to the day she becomes Matthew Glick’s wife and is excited for the plans he has for the house he will build her. So, when Matthew suddenly calls off the wedding, she is blindsided. She knows there is more to the story than what he is telling her, but will he open up and let her in on his own heartbreak?

Where the Heart Is

Tobias Smucker is back home, and it’s no secret he and his father are still not on the best of terms. But what is surprising is that his little sister’s best friend, Mariella, has been harboring her own secret feelings for Tobias. With her help, he begins to unravel a family mystery and learns that everyone has their own hidden depths, including his father.

Love Birds (previously published in An Amish Market)

While Ellie Lapp and her mother are still mourning the loss of her brother, Seth, Ellie starts working at one of the gift shops in town. Seth’s friend Lloyd is talented at carving wooden birds, but his father disapproves and expects him to take over the family farm someday. Ellie sees the beauty in Lloyd’s creations and insists Lloyd sell the birds in the gift shop where she works. As Ellie and Lloyd spend more time together, they begin to develop feelings for one another, but she accidentally betrays his trust. Will she lose any hope of a future with him?

My Thoughts
Another fabulous Amish collection from the talented hands of Mrs. Amy Clipston! She is a talent in the Amish fiction world and I have yet to be disappointed by her work. She creates stories full of hope and love, longing and faith. The simplicity of the Amish life always draws me in and this book did just that.

We see a couple characters from other novella collections, but it was so nice to catch back up on them, along with Matthew and Lindsay and Tobias and Mariella. These sweet couples all shine in their stories and I loved coming back to them! It was like coming home to family after a long time away. I felt all their emotions strongly and loved watching the sweethearts all come full circle in their lives.

This is definitely a fantabulously done 4 star collection of inspiring, entertaining and captivating stories. If you are looking for a relaxing, heart warming collection of novellas about sweethearts and relying on the path that God puts before you, then grab this one up quick! You won’t be sorry! I can’t wait for another amazing hit from Mrs. Clipston!
