An Amish Summer (Releasing 6/6/17)
A new novella collection of sweet, summer romances from some of our favorite Amish authors!
Summer Storms by Amy Clipston
Ariana is counting down the days until her wedding to Jesse. They have been friends longer than Ariana can remember, and that friendship turned into love over the past couple of years. But when Ariana’s brother Tobias, who happens to be Jesse’s best friend, gets them both into trouble, Ariana’s father puts an end to her engagement to Jesse. Some summer storms pass quickly, but Ariana is afraid the damage from this one may be too much to repair.
A Reunion in Pinecraft by Shelley Shepard Gray
When sisters Sharon and Sherilyn Kramer attend a wedding in Shipshewana, one of them returns with a new penpal while the other returns to her job at the bakery. After sending weekly letters back and forth, Sherry and Graham Holland arrange a reunion in Pinecraft. Upon Graham’s arrival, however, he realizes he’s been writing to the wrong sister. He decides to use the reunion as a way to get to know both sisters, but can he sort through the confusion in time to turn the worst vacation ever into something truly wonderful?
Lakeside Love by Kathleen Fuller
Esther has always lived in the shadow of her beautiful younger sister Sarah. Even the boy she has known—and loved—her entire life, Judah, only has eyes for Sarah. But when a handsome young Englischer comes to live with the family for a summer, everything begins to change.
One Sweet Kiss by Kelly Irvin
Everybody in little Bee County, Texas, can see the obvious: Jacob King and Martha Byler are meant to be together. Everyone, that is, but Martha. Ever since her mother died when Martha was a young girl, she has taken over the role of caregiver to her large family. And reckless Jacob, who has had a little too much fun on his rumspringa, only seems to add to the list of people to manage. But one summer changes everything, and these two may just find a way to meet in the middle and share one sweet kiss.
The Making of Summer Storms
Summer Storms features a new cast of characters, including Ariana Smucker, her boyfriend Jesse Zook, and her brother Tobias Smucker. Ariana and Jesse face some tough issues together, which are a test of their relationship. In this story I explored a temptation that many young people face–alcohol.
I had a lot of fun writing about Ariana and Jesse, and I hope readers enjoy their story. You will see Ariana, Jesse, and Tobias again in my upcoming story Where the Heart Is, which will be featured in my Amish Sweethearts novella collection coming in January 2018. I dedicated this story to all of the awesome members for my street team, the Bakery Bunch.
