Summer of Secrets

Zebra: Kensington. (Seasons of the Heart, Bk. 1). Feb. 2012. c.320. ISBN 9781420121698. pap. $6.99. CF
In the Amish town of Willow Ridge, MO, Miriam Lantz runs the Sweet Seasons Bakery with her twin daughters, Rachel and Rhonda. All three are looking forward to Rachel's nuptials to carpenter Micah Brenneman, but their lives are thrown off course when an Englisher, a Goth girl, arrives at the bakery claiming to be Rachel and Rhonda's sister. Secrets long buried resurface, threatening not only Rachel's plans but Miriam's as well.
VERDICT This series debut by romance author Hubbard (Gabriel's Lady; Journey to Love) is long on preaching and short on romance. Amish fiction aficionados can skip this one and pick up the latest Beverly Lewis instead.
