Review: The Amish Christmas Sleigh by: Long/Lillard/Jebber

The Amish Christmas Sleigh
About the Book:
Through the snowy night, silver bells ring cheerfully, heralding a season of secret gifts, unexpected chances, and love's sweetest journeys . . . 
Kelly Long 
For solitary toy-maker Sebastian Christner, hiring Kate Zook as his new housekeeper is simply the right thing to do. Now she can support her special-needs brother. But one taste of her independent spirit is showing him undreamed-of holiday joy—and making him long to give her a home for always . . .
Amy Lillard
Bernice Yoder has far too much to do to entertain holiday dreams. Even if she can help Jess Schmucker outwit his three mischievous young daughters, it's impossible to imagine the handsome widower can see her as anything but a scolding schoolteacher. He never guesses how a magical Christmas Eve will open his eyes to love or how Der Herr will awaken their faith and hope. 
Molly Jebber
As much as Charity Lantz's children need a father, the young widow isn’t sure her new neighbor Luke Fisher can ever be the right choice. They’re having more disagreements than snowflakes in December. Besides, he's never given a sign he wants to be more than friends. Can Gott show them a way past their misunderstandings to a forever love? 

My Review:
A Sleigh Ride On Ice Mountain:
 Sebastian lost his joy especially around the holidays. Kate takes real good care of her special needs brother. Taking care of him is her main concern. Things start to develop between Sebastian and Kate but will either of them let it happen naturally or will this be love learned the hard way?

A Mamm For Christmas:
 Bernice and Jess seem like an unpredictable couple but if Jess could just understand where Bernice is coming from he could see her as well as everything around him in a totally new light.

An Unexpected Christmas Blessing:
 God is so involved in our lives probably more than we ever realize. Charity just doesn't see where love will ever come her way again. She thought that maybe, that may come in the way of her neighbor but now she isn't so sure.

Love shows up when you aren't really looking for it or at least that has been. God makes things happen in the most unexpected of ways. Each of these couples sees that first hand. I love Amish fiction and the fact that all of these take place around Christmas is even more of a delight. It's only September right now but reading Christmasy books makes me smile!

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
