Book Review: Amish Love Letters by Shelley Shepard Gray, Charlotte Hubbard, and Rosalind Lauer

                             Amish Love Letters

                                     by Shelley Shepard Gray, Charlotte Hubbard, and Rosalind Lauer
A heartfelt note, a loving message, a letter filled with secret hopes—this trio of sweet Amish romances will show that on Valentine’s Day, the right words can spark a lifetime of joy.

Love Letter Courtship * Shelley Shepard Gray

After six months of courtship, Jennie Miller has refused Matt Lapp’s proposal. Though he visits regularly, they never seem to talk deeply, and Jennie longs for real connection and romance. Chastened, Matt offers a solution. For two months, they’ll share letters filled with their hopes and dreams. Soon, Jennie is falling for Matt in earnest . . . but will he ever propose again?

S.W.A.K * Charlotte Hubbard

Quiet, gentle Fannie Kurtz knows that fun-loving Eddie Brubaker is the man she wants to marry someday. When he starts receiving letters in pink envelopes, she realizes she has some competition. Maybe it’s time she wrote a love note or two of her own? But a mix-up could jeopardize this romance before it starts, unless she keeps faith in Gott’s plan . . .
The Wrong Valentine * Rosalind Lauer

Young widow Martha Lambright is grateful to be working at her mother-in-law’s restaurant, even if seeing the kitchen gals giggle over Valentine cards gives her a pang. But when Mose Troyer, the former bad boy who drives Martha to and from work each day, finds a Valentine he mistakenly believes is for him, it begins a tender exchange that could lead to a wonderful future . . .

My review: 
Falling in love can be complicated a lot of times as proven by these three books.  I loved reading each story and now I'm excited for Valentine's Day.   I want to spread the spirit of love and make Valentines for my husband and everyone!  

Love Letter Courtship * Shelley Shepard Gray

It was just expected for them to marry but did she really know him and did he know her?   How in the world could they ever discover each other and find that love?

The solution, the revealed secrets, and the unconditional love that Jennie's parents showed Matt, set the stage for a great read. 

S.W.A.K * Charlotte Hubbard

What a great mix up of Fannie's. I actually had to go back a couple of pages in Charlotte Hubbards book S.W.A.K. to make sure I got the names right!  It was then I knew this book was going to get interesting!    I also had to look up what S.W.A.K. meant (sealed with a kiss) but I didn't do that until I had read the book.  It didn't deter me at all that I didn't know, I just kept reading. 

I loved that the elders were looking out for Eddie and he was willing to listen.  We all need advice sometimes and it can really help.   I'm glad that they were there.

Great read!  

The Wrong Valentine * Rosalind Lauer
Rosalind Lauer is a new to me author.  She wrote a beautiful story about young widow hopefully finding love again.  Could she find the perfect husband?  Is there a perfect husband?  The Valentine mix up set the stage for an page turner.
I loved the thoughts of valentines for everyone...not just your husband/boyfriend.  Spread the love!  

I was given a complimentary copy of this book.
