Means risking everything.
Running the RV park at her father’s Amish market makes Bethany Yoder happy—until he hires her childhood nemesis, Aaron King. Soon Bethany’s quaint ideas clash with Aaron’s Englisch-style upgrades. But they must work together to turn a profit…or else. When their unlikely alliance turns into something more, will Aaron’s secrets break them—and the business—apart forever?
Her Amish Adversary by Vannetta Chapman is an entertaining story. It is the second book in the Indiana Amish Market series. It can be read as a standalone, but you will be missing out on a cute story (An Amish Proposal for Christmas). I like Vannetta Chapman’s writing style. Her stories draw me right in. There is humor throughout. I laughed often while reading this book. The Yoder girls are delightful. I cannot wait for Eunice’s story (I bet it will be a hoot). Eunice comes up with some creative mechanical devices. Bethany Yoder and Aaron King were at odds especially in the beginning (I had to laugh when he tracked mud into her office).
Bethany is not happy to see Aaron. He teased her relentlessly at school (I know how Bethany felt). The teaser might enjoy it, but the one being teased does not. The author addressed the subject of mental illness. She handled the subject with sensitivity. We get to see how one family members mental illness affects the whole family. We return to the Shipshewana Outdoor Market, which is run by Amos Yoder, Bethany’s father. The focus is on the RV park where Bethany is the RV park manager. I can imagine spending the whole day at this large market (the food sounds scrumptious). I like that we get to catch up with Becca Yoder and Gideon Fisher as well as the rest of the Yoder clan. The ending left me smiling. I am eager for the next Indiana Amish Market novel. Her Amish Adversary is a tender tale with a massive market, a grubby rug, a sensitive secret, wedding planning, an old adversary, and a meeting of the minds.
