Secrets and Mischief -- Amish Christmas Cookie Tour

I recently had the opportunity to read Jennifer Beckstrand's contribution to the Amish Christmas Cookie Tour anthology. (I haven't gotten to the other two stories yet but plan to do that soon.) 

Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies is exactly what you would expect if you are familiar with her Petersheim Brothers books -- a story that includes a great deal of mischief from those Petersheim twins (with the best of intentions, of course) but also a fun, sweet story with some good lessons woven in.

Even though this is a short story, Jennifer still does a great job with her characters, making them come alive and inviting the reader into their lives. Even though some elements are pretty easy to predict from the beginning, there is plenty of uncertainty, secrets and challenge to make this a very engaging story to read. I highly recommend Amish Christmas Cookie Tour to fans of delightful Amish fiction. I hope we haven't heard the last from Alfie and Benji!

Thanks to the author for providing a digital copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.
