Guest Post from Molly Jebber

Do you remember picking out your bride’s dress? The cake? Food? Location? The invitations? Weddings are fun, no matter how simple or extravagant. The marked event fills your heart with joy sharing in the special day with the bride and groom. I remember the day I married Ed, my best friend and soulmate. We planned the details together, and we still talk about what a heartwarming memory it is for us. I’m sure if you and I met for a girl’s chat, we’d enjoy hearing each other’s account of when we exchanged vows with our sweethearts.

Amish brides may not have the flowers, rings, and fancy food and cake, but they have their traditions and share in the excitement like we do. I enjoyed writing “Joshua’s Bride”. I hope you enjoy it to.

Description

Under bright blue skies, wedding bells ring—fulfilling sweet dreams, impossible wishes, and joyous new beginnings . . .

THE RELUCTANT GROOM

By Jennifer Beckstrand

Spirited Suvie Newswenger has three marriage proposals—but not from the man she truly loves. No matter how lonely widower Aaron Beachy is, he seems determined to stay that way forever. Now, with help from his matchmaking great-grandparents, Suvie will do whatever it takes to rekindle Aaron’s hope—and spark happiness for a lifetime.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

The grandparents are at it again helping another grandchild find their one and only love. Suvie has already fell in love with Aaron, but after loosing his wife three years ago there would never be any happiness for him. But Aaron should have known Anna and Felty better than that!

Another wonderful story about the Huckleberry Hill characters. I just want to keep reading these books over and over again! Jennifer Beckstrand does a marvelous job of developing her characters into the sweetest people that quickly steel your heart strings! Aaron certainly did need help letting go of his deceased wife. Suvie was so completely different from her, but Aaron couldn’t help but like being around her. She did have her share of spunk, and was brave and determined to get what she wants.

If you haven’t met the Huckleberry Hill family, I’m telling you, you are missing out on some fabulous entertainment. Amish Brides is a wonderful way to meet this wonderful family. This is a short story so you will be able to read this one quick! Then I am sure you will go back for the rest of the books in the Huckleberry Hill family.

JOSHUA’S BRIDE
By Molly Jebber

Madeline Lehman fears her fiancé’s family will never accept her because of her rebellious sister. She’s postponed her wedding to Joshua Stutzman until they see the truth. But when Maddie adopts her sister’s abandoned baby, can she and Joshua find a way to unite their families through forgiveness as well as love?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Madeline and Joshua are just not being treated right by their Amish community. Madeline is not responsible for her sister leaving her Amish faith, but everyone, especially Joshua’s family. After all her sister was engaged to Madeline’s brother and they feared the same would happen to their other son. And tensions sour even more when Maddie adopts her sisters abandoned baby.

I felt so very bad for this couple. They were truly in love and neither of them showed any signs of leaving their faith and family. But Joshua’s family was down right rude to Maddie, no matter how nice she treated her. It was when Trouble comes to the family and Maddie was so sweet to help them that the Stutzman’s finally realized Maddie may not be so bad. But would Maddie still wish to free Joshua from marrying her because of his family?

A SUMMER WEDDING IN PARADISE
By Amy Lillard

Reba Schmucker longs to be a bride. And she knows her mischievous nieces just wanted to help when they “chose” Abel Weaver for her. But he’s the last man in the world she’d ever marry. There’s no way her independence and his stubbornness could ever get along—unless a sudden crisis somehow leads to understanding . . . and love.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Reba doesn’t need to find her own husband, her three nieces are quite the matchmakers, after all they did succeed in finding a wife for their dad so they could have a mom. And Abrl is just the husband for Reba. The problem was, neither Reba nor Abel want love in their lives. But the three sisters are determined and will go to great lengths to accomplish what they set out to do.

This was such a sweet read. I loved these sweet sisters, they were so cute in deciding how to bring Abel and Reba together. Not that Abel and Reba enjoyed the situations they were put in. Especially when the two didn’t meet in the best of circumstances. I love Amy Lillard’s books and A Summer Wedding in Paradise was one of her best. The characters were so well developed they seem like family! I enjoyed everything about this book.

AMISH BRIDES is a book of three short stories by three of my favorite Amish authors. Each story is different but each of them will be a few hours of some of the best entertainment you will find to enjoy. I highly recommend this sweet book of three Brides that find the love of their lives.
