Sweet Amish Stories for Valentine's Day -- Amish Love Letters

As we're finishing up the Christmas and New Year's holidays, Amish Love Letters is a collection of Amish stories to turn your heart toward Valentine's Day. Shelley Shepard Gray, Charlotte Hubbard, and Rosalind Lauer have each shared a sweet love story -- although with some obstacles along the way in each one. All three stories included delightful and pretty typical Amish romances which were quick and easy to read.

I particularly enjoyed Charlotte Hubbard's S.W.A.K. It was written with her usual style, which fits well within the Amish romance genre, but also takes you a little ways out of the typical box. For fans of her Promise Lodge series, you will be pleased to find that community to be the setting of this story and see several familiar characters showing up.

This may have been the first time I've read anything by Rosalind Lauer. I also enjoyed the stories both she and Shelley Shepard Gray included in the collection.

I recommend this book for fans of Amish romance, particularly those who might want to sample a variety of authors. Thanks to an author for providing a copy of Amish Love Letters. I was happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

About the Book

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 . . .
