Review: Christmas at Pebble Creek by Vannetta Chapman

Title: Christmas at Pebble Creek
Author: Vannetta Chapman
Category: Amish Holiday
Pub. Date: 11/1/2013
Publisher: Harvest House
Format: Kindle
Series: The Pebble Creek Amish

This short story e-romance is an exclusive bonus from The Pebble Creek Amish Series by Vannetta Chapman. Fans of the series will enjoy this chance to briefly revisit Pebble Creek, and new readers will be introduced to an Amish community that is more deeply explored in the three full novels, A Promise for Miriam, A Home for Lydia, and A Wedding for Julia.
As a bonus, this eBook also includes Amish homestyle recipes for chicken and dumplings, green beans, and fresh bread. Heavy snow blankets the southwestern Wisconsin Amish community as nineteen-year-old Grace Miller closes the schoolhouse for Christmas break. She’s looking forward to having extra time to help the family prepare for the holiday, and she is hoping to get a few more drawings in of the beautiful, snowy Pebble Creek landscape. Her courtship with Adam Lapp is going on six months, and Grace can’t wait to give him his present: a blue-and-brown buggy blanket she crocheted for him. Yes, this Christmas is going to be especially joyful. Yet, amid the cheer of snowshoe outings, church potlucks, and holiday festivities, Grace is given a bittersweet reminder of the Christmas story. Grief is present with celebration, and though the future is rarely certain, she is given a heartwarming glimpse that God knows our needs before we do and will provide.

My Review: 
This will be short and sweet. No kidding, this short story gave me a glimpse into some pretty great characters and how they celebrate. 

Author Vannetta Chapman is an amazing writer. She will diffidently be on my reading list. 
She can send you right inside the actual characters life's. Into their home, or riding with them in their buggy. All the emotions that each character feels is written so that you live with them yourself. 

It is no secret that I enjoy Amish books and this one, although it is just a short one, did not disappoint me. 

So like I said above this is a short and sweet review. And due to the reasons above I will be giving this book and author a Breath of Life rating of: 

 Five Clock Rating!!  

Disclosure: I didn't receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
