Litfuse Review: A Sister's Wish by:Shelley Shepard Gray





A Sister's Wish (The Charmed Amish Life, #3)
About the Book:
New York Times Bestselling Author

In Shelley Shepard Gray’s third book in her Charmed Amish Life series, a respectable young woman finds herself falling for an Amish man from the wrong side of the tracks.

Amelia Kinsinger is the perfect Amish woman—at least according to her neighbors. And while Amelia takes pride in her role as homemaker, she’s also harboring a secret: She’s been in love with bad boy Simon Hochstetler for as long as she can remember. Too bad he’s about as far from “perfect” as an Amish man could get… but that’s exactly why she’s so drawn to him.

Life hasn’t been kind to Simon. He ran away from an abusive home at fifteen and things went downhill from there. Eventually, Simon landed in prison. But the experience changed him. Now back in Charm as a grown man, he’s determined to make a new life for himself and not think too much about his wild past…unless it pertains to Amelia.

He’s loved Amelia for years. To him, she represents everything good and kind in the world. When he realizes that she returns his affections, he starts calling on her in secret, even though her older brother Lukas—who just happens to be Simon’s best friend—has made it perfectly clear that Amelia deserves better. Simon disagrees and believes he’s the only one who can truly make her happy.

But when Amelia gets hurt, it sets off a chain of events that forces them to consider their future together—and face their past mistakes. There’s a chance for love… but only if Simon dares to trust Amelia with the secrets of his past.


My Review:
 Amelia has been falling over and over for a boy that is otherwise off limits to her. He is off limits because he is a boy that finds himself in trouble quite a bit, even to the point of doing time over it. It is such a shame to this sweet girl and her loving heart. Soon love comes a calling as they say. Because Simon is determined to make a better life for himself and hopefully move past all he has done and is known for.

 Simon and Amelia have a lot of growing to do in the love department. They both need to trust each other a lot more. And Simon definitely needs to stay as straight as possible so that he does not hurt Amelia.

 I love this series by Shelley Shepard Gray! The Charmed Amish Life series is so sweet and has some roughness around the ages. Loved it immensely!
