An Amish Wedding - Wiseman, Fuller, and Long

 From the Authors...

"A Perfect Plan" by Beth Wiseman
Priscilla King has been planning to marry Chester Lapp since she was sixteen years old, and when Chester proposes on Priscilla's nineteenth birthday, wedding plans begin immediately. What wasn't planned was all the problems the couple encounters as their big day approaches. A house disaster, a ruined wedding dress, and a sick attendant all make the couple wonder if  God's sending them signs to call things off.

"The Perfect Match" by Kathleen Fuller 
Naomi Fisher has had great success at matchmaking her family members and friends. Now with her sister's wedding right around the corner, Naomi wonders why she's able to find husbands for her friends and family, but not one for herself.

"The Perfect Secret" by Kelly Long
Rose Bender has recently become engaged to handsome but somber Luke Raber. She agrees out of a sense of duty and a willingness to settle for solid friendship as a basis for the engagement. But as she watches her friend's excitement over her soon-to-be wedding, Rose wonders if there shouldn't be more to her relationship with Luke. She begins to examine Luke and his life more closely and is amazed when she stumbles upon an exciting, secret side of him that engages her mind and heart.

My thoughts...

I have been reading quite a bit of Amish Christian Fiction lately and wasn't sure if I would enjoy yet another from the same category, but I thought I would give it a try.

I thoroughly enjoyed these 3 short stories!  The author's are very similar in their writing styles, and at times I found myself forgetting that they were written by 3 different ladies. Sometimes, it can be a bit choppy or rough when you have multiple author's writing and trying to connect different stories together, but that wasn't the case here!

I loved how all 3 stories were connected, the characters and story lines you grew to love in the 1st story were continued throughout the rest of the book.  The couples were entwined with each other, and even in the end you were learning something new about the 1st couple!

I highly suggest reading this even if you are getting burnt out on Amish Fiction!  After all, everyone loves a wedding, or 2, or 3!!

I give this book 5 Stars!
