The Farmers' Market Mishap: A Sequel to The Lopsided Christmas Cake by Wanda E. Brunstetter, Jean Brunstetter + Giveaway

The Farmers' Market Mishap: A Sequel to The Lopsided Christmas Cake by Wanda E. Brunstetter, Jean Brunstetter + Giveaway 


New York Times Bestselling Author Wanda E. Brunstetter and Daughter-in-Law, Jean, Weave a Lighthearted Romance from Indiana’s Amish Country
 
Living alone for the first time in her life is lonely for Elma Hochstetler, whose twin sister Thelma recently married. Though they share the running of a general store, more and more of Thelma’s time is taken up by her growing family. Elma has dated some, but she wonders if she is just too picky to find love.
 
Through a mishap at the farmers’ market, Elma meets Ben Wagler and instantly likes him. But there is a problem. He lives in Grabill—50 miles away! But Elma has tried long-distance dating before, and it won’t work for her.  Besides the store needs her. Her sister needs her. Elma feels love will forever remain beyond her grasp.
 
Elma has a habit of putting others before her own needs. Can she learn to take a risk at following the desires of her heart?

How did Thelma meet her husband?  Find out in The Lopsided Christmas Cake.



My Thoughts:
Who knew that setting up a little stand at the neighboring farmers market and in Shipshewana could make for a particular encounter for the possibility of a romantic interest? It's fruit after all! However, Ben and Elma hit it off, but there are problems and it isn't just one.. Ben lives so far away and Elma won't leave her twin sister, Thelma it just won't happen, especially since Thelma is expecting. This book is headed for disaster and so is this couple. Will this couple make choices that will forever change their lives or will they go their own separate ways? I particularly enjoy the element of faith that Wanda includes in all of her novels. I give this book 5/5 stars. A favorable review was not required and I was given a copy by the author.

Hmm..That's a hard answer to come up with, especially since I'm single. I would have to pray and ask God to reveal that to me and learn to trust Him. Great post and question!

I think we all "give up" a few things for the love of our lives. Namely our hubbies even as we age. Our vows "for better or worse" and "in sickness and health" take on a new meaning in our later years when we see our spouse suffering through illnesses, etc.
