"Amish Cooking Class--the Celebration" Book Review


The Celebration
(Amish Cooking Class #3)
by Wanda Brunstetter

Book description:
Return to Holmes County, Ohio, for Amish style cooking class. 

Lyle and Heidi Troyer have taken in a brother and sister, who were orphaned when their parents were killed in a car accident. Hoping to help the children adapt and make friends, Heidi decides to hold a series of cooking classes for kids. But kids are always accompanied by an adult—and that is where the trouble arises.

Miranda Cooper is living the life of a single mom to her two kids while separated from her husband, but Trent is trying to worm his way back into her heart.

Denise McGuire’s life as a wife, mom, and real estate broker is full and spilling over.

Darren Keller, single dad and firefighter, and Ellen Blackburn, single mom and nurse, find a few things in common.

Will hearts be healed over plates of Amish food?

This is the third book in The Amish Cooking Class series.
Book #1:  The Amish Cooking Class - The Seekers
Book #2:  The Amish Cooking Class - The Blessing

My Book Review:   Wanda Brunstetter always writes authentic Amish fiction.  She is very familiar with the Amish faith and community and it shows in her writing.   Reading about the cooking and recipes used by the Amish make this a very special book.   Heidi and Lyle are highly sensitive to others and they highly invest in the lives of their community, even Englishers.   Heidi finds a unique way to help the children that she and Lyle are fostering.  Will it satisfy her desperate need to have a baby to care for the brother and sister, and teach a group of children to cook?  
          I am assigning a 5 ***** star rating to this 3rd novel in the Amish Cooking Class series. I've really enjoyed reading all three books.  It could be read as a stand-alone, but it helps to know the characters who carry over to the series.   
      I received a copy of this book from netgalley and Shiloh Run Press in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.
