Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was such an interesting mix of Amish and English living. I really enjoyed experiencing the Amish community through the eyes of Tessa as she returns to her small Pennsylvania hometown. It felt like such a lovely place to live!

Tessa was hoping to live low-profile for a little while until she moved to NYC, but as those plans fall through, she finds herself settling into town. Intrigued by the attractive and complex Amish man, Jonas, she finds herself in a somewhat non-traditional friendship with some steamy tension.

Mix that in with the sexy Dr. Richard Bruce that Tessa starts dating, and you’ve got yourself a love triangle. I’m not usually a fan of this romance trope, but I really enjoyed it in this story. I understood and connected with the relationship and feelings between each guy.

This was a well-written story with great characters that I fell in love with. I was invested in their stories and situations. I would definitely recommend this for romance readers!

Amazon ~ Goodreads


When Tessa’s big-city plans take the A Train to disaster, she lands in her sleepy hometown, smack in the middle of the
most unlikely love triangle ever to hit Pennsylvania’s Amish Country.

Hot-shot Dr. Richard Bruce is bound to Green Ridge by loyalty that runs deep. Deeper still is Jonas Rishel’s tie to the land and his family’s Amish community. Behind the wheel of a 1979 camper van, Tessa idles at a fork in the road. Will she cruise the superhighway to the future? Or take a slow trot to the past and a mysterious society she never dreamed she’d glimpse from the inside?
