    Excellent Storytelling!

    The Innkeeper's Bride is filled with wonderful characters and intriguing situations and even though it is the third book in a series, I never felt in the dark because I hadn't read the first book. I first met Cevilla Schlabach and Richard Johnson in Kathleen Fuller's novella A Chance to Remember so I am thrilled to see that the friendship of their youth has deepened into love. Cevilla has always maintained that she is content to be single and devote her love to Jesus Christ but now, she finds herself wondering if Richard might ask her to be his wife. Her patience begins to wear thin as she waits to see if Richard can adapt to her way of life; will he finally make Cevilla a married woman? Selah Ropp has recently moved back to Birch Creek and she now has a new job and new friends but she finds herself doubting her abiltiy to deal with these situations. Depression and anxiety issues have plagued Selah in the past and they cause her to second guess her abilities and even the thoughts and motives of those around her. It doesn't help that one of her new employers seems determined to play matchmaker and that the other person involved is also her employer. Levi Stoll is stubborn and he claims indifference but I really liked him and his positive outlook. Is it possible that his good nature might help Selah adjust to her new life in Birch Creek, Ohio? Author Kathleen Fuller always makes me feel as if I am right there with her characters and this book is certainly no different. You will definitely want to read The Innkeeper's Bride if you enjoy Amish fiction and Christian romance filled with family, faith, and hope. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author via NetGalley but I was under no obligation to write a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

    The Innkeeper's Bride

    The Innkeeper's Bride by Kathleen Fuller is now on sale! Released on January 14, 2020, it is the third book in the Amish Brides of Birch Creek series. Now, you don't have to read them in order, but I recommend it because you get to know the other characters in the book better. In this installment, we again meet Selah who currently lives with her brother Christian and his wife, Ruby. Selah recently came back to Birch Creek after staying with her parents for awhile. Selah is going through some difficult times. This is an interesting aspect of the story because we usually don't see this type of issue in an Amish story. Without giving too much away, Selah struggles with some problems she has and a past she can't seem to forgive herself for. Levi Stoll and his family have settled into Birch Creek to start an inn. It's hard work but the family is excited about their new venture, They just need guests and a chance to get it off the ground. However, there's a modern hotel nearby also opening and there's going to be competition. There's room for everyone but not if someone is working underhandedly to try and ruin things for the Stolls. Also in the story is the continuing story of Richard and Cevilla who are in the later years in life and trying to overcome their own issues, mainly Cevilla being Amish where Richard is not. However, they are in love and they don't know how they will overcome their barriers to be together. I enjoyed this series and I really enjoyed the fact that Ms. Fuller addressed the issues in Selah's life. I also liked that there are several different story lines in the book. I think a lot of people will enjoy this. It's part romance, part drama and part just good old family life within the Amish. It's also about friendships and faith, all the good things in life. Thank you so much to NetGalley, the publisher and to Ms. Fuller for the ARC. Make sure you get yours today.

    A charming story!

    The Innkeeper’s Bride by Kathleen Fuller is the third novel The Amish Brides of Birch Creek. It can be read on its own if you have not read The Teacher’s Bride and The Farmer’s Bride. I found The Innkeeper’s Bride to be well-written with realistic characters. I liked that the characters had their own struggles, doubts and fears. Selah suffers from clinical depression which is not uncommon. Depression is hard to understand unless you suffer from it yourself. Selah feels ashamed that that she has depression and needs the aid of medication and a health professional. She also made a mistake with a man and does not want the unfortunate incident brought to light. Levi has his own doubts and has made mistakes in the past. She wonders if working at the inn is the right job for him. Levi would like to get to know Selah better, but he does not want his family to know. His sister, Nina will tease him and his grandmother, Delilah will meddle. Cevilla Schlabach has tried to be patient while she has waited for Richard to make a life changing decision. Unfortunately, after spending her whole adult life single, Cevilla finds she is no longer content. Cevilla is afraid to tell Richard how she feels. I love the relationship between Richard and Cevilla. They are an adorable couple. I have enjoyed their relationship. Cevilla and Delilah have become friends (of sort). Delilah has been doing a little meddling and barges in on Cevilla to get her feedback as well as complain when things do not go as she expected. There are some humorous moments between the two of them and I like their conspiring. Jackson Talbot and his father, Trevor are in The Innkeeper’s Bride. Trevor Talbot owns the Stay Inn which has been the only place to stay in Birch Creek until now. He does not like this new competition and sends Jackson to get intel on the Stoll Inn. I like Jackson and his journey. I would like to see more of Jackson. I enjoyed reading The Innkeeper’s Bride in which the author gave us delightful characters and a beautiful setting along with faith and humor. I like how Kathleen Fuller incorporate faith into the story. I am hoping that we get Nina Stoll’s story next time. The Innkeeper’s Bride is a charming, witty tale (of course, I expect nothing less from Kathleen Fuller).
