His Amish Sweetheart by Jennifer Beckstrand

 His Amish Sweetheart
Book Summary

Fondly nicknamed “The Peanut Butter Brothers,” Andrew, Abraham, and Austin Petersheim skillfully run one of Wisconsin’s most cherished family businesses. But their mischievous younger twin siblings have a talent all their own—for matchmaking . . .
Between work and keeping his little brothers out of trouble, Austin Petersheim barely has time to think, much less court the most popular maidel in town. But if he can establish a local market to direct-sell his family’s goods, he’ll stand out as a potential husband. He’s so grateful for the help of his longtime friend, Hannah Yutzy, who has such practical ideas—and is so easy to talk to . . .
While Austin embarks on his plan, his siblings have a plan of their own: to give Austin and Hannah a little nudge to show them they’re made for each other. When their antics wreak havoc with a rival family emporium, Hannah must help Austin set things right.  And as she does just that, Austin is stunned to realize his best friend could be his perfect wife. Now he’ll just need the courage and faith to find out if she agrees . . .
My Thoughts

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.

His Amish Sweetheart is available from Amazon*.  The first two books in The Petersheim Brothers series are Andrew (available through Kindle Unlimited) and Abraham.  Jennifer Beckstrand has The Amish Quiltmaker's Unconventional Niece publishing October 25.  It is the latest novel in The Amish Quiltmaker series.  She also has An Amish Christmas Inheritance releasing October 25.  It is part of the Amish Christmas Miracles series.  You can follow Jennifer Beckstrand on Amazon to receive an update when she has a new book release.   Thank you for joining me today.  Tomorrow I am sharing my thoughts on A Brush with Murder by Gail Langer Karwoski.  It is the debut of The Watercolor Mysteries.  It is hard to believe that today is the last day of June.  The month went by so quickly for me.  The Fourth of July is just around the corner.  I like the holiday, but I dread it for my fur babies.  They are scared of the fireworks (poor things).  I end up having two cats and one large dog crowded on the couch with me.  I hope that you have a witty day.  Take care, stay cool (it is so hot), and Happy Reading!
