Christmas at the Amish Market by Shelley Shepard Gray is a heartwarming tale. I was immediately drawn into the story. I like the author’s engaging writing style. It is friendly and casual. I enjoyed getting to know Wesley, Liesl, Jenny, Roland, and little Lilly. It does take time to like Liesl (if you look up self-centered in the dictionary, you will see a picture of her). Wesley and Liesl have been courting for some time. Liesl believes Wesley is the right man for her and is hoping he will propose at Christmas. Wesley has not had much time to spend with Liesl since his father has his heart attack. Wesley wants to make sure the market is a success in his father’s absence. One man cannot run a bustling market on his own. Liesl asks her Aunt Jenny who is only a couple of years older than Liesl to come work at the market. When Liesl is not working, she is helping widower Roland and his daughter, Lilly. As you can tell, It is going to be an eventful December for this group. I enjoyed the descriptions of the Pinery Christmas event. It is a place I would love to visit during the holiday season. I like how everything tied together and the ending left me smiling. There is drama, romance, humor, faith, and Christmas spirit in this entertaining story. Christmas at the Amish Market is cheery Christmas tale with a demanding market, long lines, a darling Lilly, courting difficulties, an attractive aunt, tempting mistletoe, and a happy holiday.
