Mourning Star by Amanda Flower is an Amish Mystery. Eden Hochstetler is living Sugarcreek, Ohio with her parents. They moved there from North Star, PA. A friend of Eden’s, Isaac Yoder passed away at Yoder Stables. Eden wants to find out what happened to Isaac. She does not believe his death was an accident. Eden with the help of Jesse Yoder, Isaac’s nephew, sets out to find out what happened to her friend.
Cindy Woodsmall’s In the Stars is about lost love. Savilla Beiler rejected Kore Detweiler. So Kore moved away to Virginia. He works with Esther and Jacob King on their salvage and decorating business. Business takes him back to North Star and a family emergency keeps him there. Mammi D is injured and she needs someone to watch the Adler kids while she is laid up (their parents are in Uganda adopting a child). Savilla and Kore end up working together to take care of the kids. Will Kore be able to find out why Savilla turned him away?
Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark is the last story in the book. Andy Danner left North Star after Nellie Umble broke up with him. Andy has been working in construction in Mississippi. Andy’s little brother, Sam misses Andy and works out a way to bring him home for Christmas. Nellie is very sorry that she broke up with Andy and wants him back. Can Sam get Andy back to town in time for Christmas and keep him there?
There is an enjoyable epilogue that ties up all the storylines in the book. All four stories are just wonderful. I loved this book. It will help put you in the mood for Christmas. Amanda Flower’s Mourning Star had a good mystery, enjoyable characters, and some delicious descriptions of fudge. Amish Christmas at North Star is a heartwarming and well-written book. You will not go wrong in reading Amish Christmas at North Star. I give Amish Christmas at North Star 5 out of 5 stars. I liked how all these stories were written by different authors by you would never know it. They all tied together beautifully.
I received a complimentary copy of Amish Christmas at North Star from Blogging for Books (and the publisher) in exchange for an honest review.
Curiosity gets the best of Englischer Chase Wellington when he investigates the twenty-five-year-old disappearance of an Amish baby. When he finds adventurous Elle McAllister in Iowa will his discoveries upend her world?
My thoughts: This was a very sweet romance. I loved Chase. He was a dear, kind, considerate, and smart. Elle was a dear, and as much as she and her adoptive mother imagined where she came from she had never guessed the truth. Beautiful story. Unfinished- but maybe it will be wrapped up at the end of the book...
Mourning Star by Amanda Flower
Eden Hochstetler slips from her parents’ fudge shop to investigate the death of her friend Isaac. Who is guilty? Isaac’s handsome great nephew Jesse, an angry Englischer, or someone else?
My thoughts: This is the first story I ever read by Ms. Flower's. It is a cozy mystery, where Eden and her friend Gina investigates a murder of an Amish man - the story was good. Not what I expected, but very good. I suspected who-dun-it, but hadn't made the connection between suspect to yeah, "he" did it by the time the story ended so it was a bit of surprise to me.
In the Stars by Cindy Woodsmall
Heartbroken Kore Detweiler avoids North Star after Savilla Beiler rejects his love. But when he is unexpectedly called to return home, he and Savilla must join forces to keep a family together.
My thoughts: It was interesting reading Kore and Savilla's story. While a romance it took some cunexpected twists and a lot of anger for these characters to find themselves. I did skim this story a lot, but enjoyed getting reacquainted with characters from another one of Ms. Woodsmall's books.
Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark
Andy Danner left North Star to join a new Amish settlement in Mississippi. His little brother devises a scheme to bring Andy home for Christmas and unwittingly unleashes the power of forgiveness in a reclusive widower’s life.
My thoughts: This was my favorite story in the collection. I loved Sam and how dedicated he was to t he family and people he loved and how determined he was to reach his goals. And how unselfishly he gave when the need arose. A very sweet story, the best one in this collection. Loved it.
My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was bought this book. All opinions are my own." That done, I enjoyed this collection of four Amish stories centered around one birthing center and four babies born the same day, twenty-five years prior. I liked find out how all those babies turned out -- and the first story's strings that were left untied were neatly tied and trimmed by the end of the book.
