Starting from Scratch (Lancaster Discoveries Book 2) by [Lloyd, Kate]

Starting from Scratch (Lancaster Discoveries Book 2) 


From Amazon:

At age twenty-nine, that's what Eva Lapp considers herself. And who could argue with her? Finding a good Amish husband at her age will be next to impossible. Plus, Eva's unwarranted bad reputation in Lancaster County precedes her. Maybe living the Englisch life would be better.
Squeezed out of her childhood home by her brother's boisterous family, Eva finds lodging and a new job managing a small café at a local plant nursery. But the challenge of her new position isn't enough to distract from her current predicament.
To Eva's surprise, her first love, Jake Miller, suddenly returns to Lancaster County. Flooded with emotions and filled with questions about Jake's past, can Eva trust what she's feeling?
Jake and Eva face many obstacles in their quest for a fresh start in the community, but perhaps with God's help, they can find the redemption they both desperately need.

My Thoughts:

Kate Lloyd put a different spin on Amish life in Starting from Scratch, that I never thought about before, leaving me captivated in the first few pages.  With her vivid descriptions she deposited me right in to the midst of mystery and romance. 

So many great charactors kept this story going for me.  I cared for each one but Eva just captured my heart with the way she was treated and the words spoken against her.  She was loving, hard working, and followed God.  It reminds me not to believe everything I hear.  

This story kept me guessing on how it would end.  Then, it didn't go as I imagined it would.  I'm over it though and I enjoyed every page.   

A great great read!
