A Quiet Love, by Kathleen Fuller 

Dinah Hochstetler, quiet and bookish, longs for marriage but hides in her shyness. Amos Mullett, a simple farmer, knows he’s different but aches for a loving wife. As Dinah and Amos navigate a budding romance, will the power of love—and the blessing of God—be enough to overcome their doubters?

My Review:
 Under the Harvest Moon, by Beth Wiseman
 Naomi and Brock seemed like such the unlikely pair. But as growing feelings keep pairing them together. Brock has to prove himself to so many. All the while he and this fascinating woman can't seem to not care for one another.

 
Love and Buggy Rides, by Amy Clipston
Janie and Jonathan are really good at being friends but what will it take for them to develop something more meaningful? There are so many things for them both to consider in this love story.

 A Quiet Love, by Kathleen Fuller
Dinah and Amos are both too fearful to do what comes natural when it comes to having romantic feelings for another individual. Will they be able to move past all the fear and rejection to gain something more than just a casual friendship?

 Mischief in the Autumn Air, by Vannetta Chapman 
Who is not ready for a little fall mystery? Vannetta Chapman is at it again in Mischief in the Autumn Air when Eli Wittmer along with his new bookkeeper discover a mystery in their auction house when some sold pieces in his gallery have portions of a map that are attached to the back of them. As they go on their quest to discover the mystery behind this unusual map, they find so much more.

 Like the winds of change that take place as the leaves reveal their beautiful colors, so does this mystery as it gives way to new love.

An Amish Harvest is the perfect novella to read as you reign the new fall season. Among the cooler weather and the beautiful landscape changes we get a renewed sense of life and living it abundantly, especially when that crisp fall air nips at our cheeks. A great read to curl up on the couch and read!
