About the Book:
New York Times Bestselling Author Wanda E. Brunstetter and Daughter-in-Law, Jean, Weave a Lighthearted Romance from Indiana’s Amish Country

Living alone for the first time in her life is lonely for Elma Hochstetler, whose twin sister Thelma recently married. Though they share the running of a general store, more and more of Thelma’s time is taken up by her growing family. Elma has dated some, but she wonders if she is just too picky to find love.

Through a mishap at the farmers’ market, Elma meets Ben Wagler and instantly likes him. But there is a problem. He lives in Grabill—50 miles away! But Elma has tried long-distance dating before, and it won’t work for her.  Besides the store needs her. Her sister needs her. Elma feels love will forever remain beyond her grasp.

Elma has a habit of putting others before her own needs. Can she learn to take a risk at following the desires of her heart?

How did Thelma meet her husband?  Find out in The Lopsided Christmas Cake.

My Review:
 With me not reading the first in the series, this book still could stand by itself. But I will have to admit that now I will have to read the first one just for the shear curiosity of it all. The Farmer's Market Mishap is a sequel to The Lopsided Christmas Cake which sounds phenomenal from what I understand.

 Elma has somewhat given up on love, especially now since her sister Thelma has moved on with her life and gotten married and is now expecting her first child. Thelma doesn't want to see her sister alone for the rest of her life. But she knows if she doesn't give Elma a little push this will surely be her fate. So Thelma is trying to push her sister back in the arms of Delbert Gingerich but Elma has seen someone else that has caught her eye. And it seems at the farmer's market she may just get her chance at long awaited love.

 Ben takes care of his mother and he just figures he will do that for the rest of his life. But God has a way at laughing at our plans and he starts to turn things around for Elma and Ben. He turns them around in the right direction and love may just bloom after all. 

A great story of a great family! I wish I knew these girls. I would fit right in.
