His Amish Sweetheart by Jennifer Beckstrand is an entertaining Amish tale. I laughed so often while reading this engaging story. Alfie and Benji are a hoot. The twin brothers are determined to get their bedroom back. They do not like sleeping in the cellar (there are spiders, it smells, and a rat could eat them you know). The boys decide the only solution is to marry off their three older brothers. They have had success with Andrew and Abraham. Austin, though, is going to be more of a challenge. Austin is too handsome for his own good and a bit self-centered. The twins believe Hannah Yutzy, Austin’s best friend, is the right person for Austin. The problem is making Austin see it and direct him away from Priscilla Lambright. Austin finds Priscilla to be the prettiest girl in their community and she loves the Petersheim peanut butter. Alfie and Benji come up with a plan to nudge Austin in Hannah’s direction. They enlist the help of two of Hannah’s young female cousins. Can the twins get Austin married off so they can move back into their old bedroom?
I thought His Amish Sweetheart was well-written with developed characters. I just love the characters in this series especially the mischievous Benji and Alfie. Their antics had me laughing. The addition of Hannah’s young cousins added to the hilarity. We also get to catch up with the Honeybee sisters and their colorful aunt, Bitsy. I like how everything tied together into one engaging story. There are good life lessons as well. I enjoyed seeing the characters learn and grow. I did not want this diverting story to end (I am still laughing about the BM cookies). The conclusion was delightful. His Amish Sweetheart (formerly known as Austin) is the third book in The Petersheim Brothers series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but this is one series you do not want to miss. I hope this is not the end of the road for Alfie and Benji. His Amish Sweetheart is a heartwarming and humorous Amish tale with Petersheim Peanut Butter, inventive twins, luscious cinnamon rolls, a sign scrape, a cookie crisis, reading time troubles, and a merry market.
