A Season of Love, by Amy Clipston
In this fifth and final novel of the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, when Katie’s friends pair up with their future husbands she feels left out. When Jake Miller begins working on the cabinetry at the bakery, she is attracted, but realizes that since he cannot be more than a friend since he is not Amish. When Katie is attacked, Jake comes to her rescue, but appearances cause Katie’s father to ground her, unfairly. Katie and Jake both feel the attraction, but the gap between Amish and Mennonite may be too far to bridge.
This is an interesting story, set in the Amish community, but showing that the Amish lifestyle is not as perfect as it may appear. This sweet romance has enough twists to make it a fun read. I would recommend it to all readers of Amish fiction, especially those that have enjoyed the previous books in the series and want to follow the story to completion.
