Book Review: Hidden Away at Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard


                 Hidden Away at Promise Lodge

                                                           by Charlotte Hubbard

Returning to the fan-favorite world of the closeknit Amish community of Promise Lodge, the small-town Missouri setting of her beloved Amish inspirational romance novels, the author continues to delight readers with uplifting tales of faith, family, and the blessings and happiness of true love and caring partnership. For fans of Shelley Shepard Gray and Beth Wiseman.

When Karen Mercer and Andi Swann come to Promise Lodge for a week’s stay, the Kuhn sisters quickly detect the guests are not Plain folk, despite their 
kapps and homemade dresses. Entranced by the idyllic Amish lifestyle they’ve read about in romance novels, the visitors have gone undercover to revisit the place that was once the church camp where they spent happy summers. They mean no harm—but when the truth is uncovered, their deception has an intriguing impact on the faithful, hard-working
community . . .
Meanwhile, amid bustling preparations for a spring wedding, a shy horse trainer is encouraged to share his colorful world with a newcomer awaiting a miracle . . . while the widowed baker of luscious Promise Lodge Pies sees a long-time friendship in a romantic new light. And in the wake of a destructive storm, Karen and Andi’s insider knowledge of the grounds may offer the safe passage they all need to renew and rebuild—stronger than ever . . .

My review:

Hidden Away at Promise Lodge is filled with action, romance, and love for the community.  I never wanted to put it down as the action never stopped.

I have to admit that my first thought as I was reading was, oh no, this is not going to end well.  It was like the an I Love Lucy moment when Andi and her friend, Karen, walked in with their "Amish" dresses.  I was hooked right then, but it was so hard to watch read when what I really wanted to do was cover up my eyes! 

The friends story alone could have been the book, but Charlotte Hubbard continued with more wonderful stories too to tell about the community.  Each story was my favorite and each charactor I loved and understood.  It all flowed so well, never once missing a beat.

I highly recommend this book for a great, great read!  

I was given a complimentary copy of this book.
